CHAPTER 1

THE BASICS: Versatile, Homemade Nut Butters and Sugar-Free Chocolates

The Basics

Before you start creating low-carb snacks, including fat bombs, you'll need to make a few simple-to-prepare, basic ingredients, such as nut and seed butters and homemade chocolate. Most nut and seed butters can be kept at room temperature for a few days, and will last for several weeks in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator. You can also freeze nut and seed butters for 3 to 4 months. Homemade chocolate will keep refrigerated for up to 3 months. The best part is, in addition to being delicious, all these recipes are sugar free.

Almond and Cashew Butter 10
Coconut and Pecan Butter 12
Chocolate-Hazelnut Butter 14
Eggnog-Macadamia Butter 16
White Chocolate and Macadamia Butter 18
Berry Nut Butter 20
Spiced Maple and Pecan Butter 22
Chocolate Chip Cookie Butter 24
Pistachio-Coconut Butter 26
Pumpkin Sun Butter 28
Almond Bliss Butter 30
Homemade Dark Chocolate Three Ways 32
Homemade White Chocolate 34

Almond and Cashew Butter

This delicious spread is a great paleo alternative to peanut butter.

1 cup (150 g /5.3 oz) almonds,
blanched or whole
1/3 cup (50 g /1.8 oz) cashews
4 tablespoons (60 ml /2 fl oz) almond oil or macadamia nut oil Pinch salt (optional)
Seeds from 1 vanilla bean (optional)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
(optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C, or gas mark 4). Spread the almonds and cashews on a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Remove from the oven and cool.

2. In a food processor, pulse the nuts until smooth (or reserve some chopped nuts to add later for a chunkier texture). Depending on your processor, this may take some time. At first, the mixture will be dry. Scrape down the sides several times with a rubber spatula if the mixture sticks.

3. Add the oil. Continue to blend until you reach the desired consistency. The oil makes the butter smoother and more suitable for creating fat bombs. Add the salt and vanilla bean seeds or cinnamon (if using) and pulse to combine. Spoon the butter into a glass container. Seal and store at room temperature for up to 1 week or refrigerate for up to 3 months.

YIELD: about 1 cup (250 g/8.8 oz)

NUTRITIONAL FACTS

Per serving (2 tablespoons [1.1 ounce, or 32 g]): total carbs: 5.5 g; fiber: 2.1 g; net carbs: 3.4 g; protein: 5.2 g; fat: 19.4 g; energy: 205 kcal.

Coconut and Pecan Butter

Keep a napkin handy. You'll drool over this cinnamon-spiced nut butter. Made with pecans and coconut, it's perfect for making chocolate treats.

2 cups (150 g/5.3 oz) unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup (100 g/3.5 oz) pecans
1 teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract or
½ teaspoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt

1. In a food processor, combine the coconut, pecans, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Depending on your processor, this may take a few minutes. At first, the mixture will be dry. Scrape down the sides several times with a rubber spatula if the mixture sticks.

2. Spoon the butter into a glass container. Seal and store at room temperature for up to 1 week or refrigerate for up to 3 months.

YIELD: about 1 cup (250 g/8.8 oz)

NUTRITIONAL FACTS

Per serving (2 tablespoons [1.1 ounce, or 32g]): total carbs: 6.5 g; fiber: 4.4 g; net carbs: 2.1 g; protein: 5 g; fat: 11.6 g; energy: 154 kcal.

Macronutrient ratio: calories from carbs: 6 percent; protein: 15 percent; fat: 79 percent.

To enhance this butter's flavor, use roasted pecans and coconut: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C, or gas mark 4). Spread the coconut and pecans on a baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and roast for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the coconut is lightly golden. Stir once or twice to prevent burning.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Butter

This healthy, low-carb alternative to Nutella is just the thing for making truffles, and it's also great in smoothies.

1 cup (150 g/5.3 oz) hazelnuts
1 cup (130 g/4.6 oz) macadamia nuts
½ cup (75 g/2.6 oz) almonds
1 bar (100 g/3.5 oz) extra-dark chocolate, 85 percent cacao or more
1 tablespoon (15 g/0.5 oz) coconut oil
1 tablespoon (5 g/0.2 oz) unsweetened cacao powder
1 teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract or
½ teaspoon vanilla powder
2 tablespoons (20 g/0.7 oz) erythritol or Swerve, powdered Few drops liquid stevia, to taste
(optional)
½ cup (120 ml/4 fl oz) coconut milk or heavy whipping cream (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C, or gas mark 5). Spread the hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, and almonds on a baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the nuts from the oven and cool for 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler, or heat-proof bowl placed over a small pot filled with 1 cup (235 ml) of boiling water, making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir until melted.

3. Rub the hazelnuts together in your hands to remove the skins. This makes the butter smooth and avoids the bitter taste imparted by the skins. Place all of the nuts into a food processor and pulse until smooth.

4. Add the cacao powder, vanilla, erythritol, and stevia (if using) to the melted chocolate. Pour the mixture into the processor with the nuts and pulse until smooth. If you're using the coconut milk, add it to the processor and pulse again.

5. Transfer the butter to a glass container. Seal and refrigerate for up to 3 months, or 4 weeks if using coconut milk or cream.

* For fat bomb-friendly food extracts, use unsweetened food extracts that are free from propylene glycol and any added sugar. Other common ingredients found in food extracts include water, natural oils, alcohol, and glycerin. Avoid using alcohol if your primary aim is to lose weight, but small amounts in food extracts won't do any harm. Another ingredient that turns up is glycerin, which is a liquid byproduct of making soap. It belongs to a special category of carbohydrates called polyols. Glycerin has a minimal effect on blood sugar levels and can be used in small quantities. Certain food extracts can also be swapped for a few drops of essential oils, such as orange, lemon, and mint.

Super Low-Carb Snacks: 100 Delicious Keto and Paleo Treats for Fat Burning and Great Nutrition 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
LadyBooksalot 5 months ago
For those living a more “back to nature” food regimen, this book is quite healthy and helpful. Recipes are unique and easy to follow. Ingredients ought to be found at your local health food store. On,y downside is they take more time to prepare if you’re not used to, for example, making your own mayonnaise. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Super Low-Carb Snacks Is such a fabulous book of low carb snacks that this reader and keto follower is flipping through, marking pages and looking forward to trying. What I loved most about this book is the introduction;, an easy to read section filled with lots of information on why eating low carb is beneficial to the body. The authors do this in an easy to understand way that gave me some good insight into the "why's" of keto. I'm not entirely new to this lifestyle and a nurse AND still learned from this section. I also loved that many of the recipes use the same ingredients so it isn't going to break the bank to make several of them. I'll be trying some of the fat bombs and the Favorite Cracker recipe today. Many thanks to Quarto Publishing Group – Fair Winds Press and Netgalley for the chance to read this temporary digital advanced copy for an honest review. I enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone looking to enhance their low carb lifestyle.

CarissaR 6 months ago
So many good looking, yummy snacks to make that I didn't even think about eating like different types of savory fat bombs. I can't wait to try them. Of course I'm sad some of the baked goods are too high for Keto, but maybe those will be a special treat. I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This beautifully photographed cookbook contains 100 Super Low-Carb Snacks. By lowering the carbs, something has to go up. I was hoping it would be the protein but most of these self-described “fat bombs” are well over 50% fat. In addition, most of the recipes have high-calorie counts due to this excessive fat. If you are keto and trying to keep below 50 net carbs, just two snacks may use that up leaving nothing for your meals. However, there is good news. The food looks delicious in full-color pictures. Almost every recipe has its own picture. All the recipes are gluten-free and indicate when they are also nut, dairy and/or egg-free. The nutritional information includes carbs, protein, and fat by weight and percentage. It also shows calories and fiber. While there are many fat bombs of nut butters and cheese balls, there are also crackers, snack bars, and candy. But my favorite is Green Deviled Eggs & Bacon, which are kind of avocado toast for grain-free folks. 68% fat but at only 164 calories for two halves, it’s not too bad a hit especially with 10 grams of protein. Overall, Super Low-Carb Snacks may, or may not, work for your diet—only you can decide. Regardless, the beautiful photographs, clear instructions, and comprehensive nutritional information make this a 4-star cookbook. Thanks to Fair Winds Press and NetGalley for a wished for copy in exchange for my honest review.
