4 oz of cream cheese
3 tablespoons of butter, melted, divided, plus more for brushing
1/3 c. packed keto-friendly brown sugar
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 c. keto-friendly granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of gluten-free baking powder

2 tablespoons of coconut flour
2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract
2 c of shredded mozzarella
For the Glaze
2 tablespoons of keto-friendly granulated sugar

2 tablespoons of heavy cream
Prepare the rolls: In a bowl, whisk coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, and granulated sugar until combined. In another bowl, whisk eggs with vanilla.
In a medium-size microwave bowl, microwave cream cheese and mozzarella. Stir it every 30 seconds till it gets melty – approximately 90 seconds. Put in the melted cheese mixture and egg mixture to dry the mixture. Knead till it combines.
Create a border on your work surface using parchment paper. Next, pour out the dough to the parchment. Put another parchment on the top, then roll till you get a 16 by 10 inches rectangle. Glaze the dough with 2 tablespoons of butter and sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on it.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Border an 8 by 8-inch metal baking pan using parchment paper, then glaze with butter. Beginning from the long end, roll the dough into a log. Wait for 10 minutes.
Cut the log into 12 pieces. Next, arrange them in your baking dish. Glaze tops of rolls with the leftover 1 tablespoon of melted butter.
Allow the rolls to bake until they are golden. That should be in about 30 minutes.
Prepare the icing: In a medium-size heatproof bowl, melt the cream cheese. Whisk in heavy cream and sugar until smooth.
Glaze icing over the rolls, then serve.
One-Skillet Chicken Pot Pie (Family Serving)
This is a very simple keto recipe that takes just about 59 minutes to make. The carb in each serving is only about 5 net.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups diced rotisserie chicken
1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar
3 tablespoons Grass-Fed Butter
1 Chopped Onion
1 10oz bag frozen peas and carrots
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
3 chopped Celery Stalks
1 cup Organic Chicken Stock
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 cups mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons cream cheese
You can use chicken breasts if you can’t get rotisserie chicken. To reduce the carbs, don’t use frozen carrots and peas. Substitute them with spinach, broccoli, or bell pepper.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a cast-iron skillet, add onions, butter, celery, and garlic. Cook until you caramelize the onions.
Put chicken broth into the skillet and allow it simmer for 15 minutes.
Add salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, and a pack of frozen vegetables. Next, gently stir. Allow it to simmer for 5 minutes.
Using low heat slowly put in heavy whipping cream while stirring.
Throw in shredded cheese and diced chicken and stir the mixture. Let it simmer for 10 minutes.
As the filling sims, quickly prepare the buttery crust. In a bowl, melt cream cheese and mozzarella cheese together.
Mix in the remaining ingredients (EXCLUDING the melted butter) with the cheeses.
Roll out dough big enough to cover a cast-iron skillet. Next, place it over the top of your filling. Make a few cuts in the middle so air can escape during baking.
Put it in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove it from the oven, and glaze it with melted butter.
That’s a wrap! While having fun with these recipes ensures that you do not compromise the keto nutritional value of these meals while trying to appeal to their taste buds.
