Instructions

Instructions are for 16 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the almonds, in a big bowl. Mix with your hands or in a food processor until a dough forms. If the dough is too soft, refrigerate for 20-30 or until it firms up.
  2. Use your hands to roll the dough into small balls, about 1" (2.5 cm) in diameter. Set aside.
  3. Roast the almonds in a dry frying pan on low heat until just browned and fragrant.
  4. Let the almonds cool to room temperature on a plate. When cool, roll the no-bake balls in the almonds until each ball is completely covered with almonds.
  5. Enjoy right away or refrigerate until serving.

Tips

You can also use granulated erythritol for this recipe but since this is a no-bake recipe you might get the crunchy texture from the erythritol which some people don't like.

Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.

    These are very good and they can take the amount of clove nicely. But, I must say they triggered my appetite to eat way more than one serving. Not too sure why that is.

    Hi Mary, that may be due to the sweetener. Some people find that sweet treats may affect hunger and cravings.
