Pistachio keto cake recipe

Pistachio Matcha Cake

Pistachio

I know, without any reminders, pistachio nuts are full of carbs (still doing better than cashews, though). That means the following pistachio matcha cake might be a bit keto unfriendly. Especially because you’ll want to eat too much of it if you’re a pistachio fan like me. Pistachio keto cake recipe On the other hand, if you are “only” a LCHF-er and like challenges that multi-layer cakes bring, go for it! This one is soooo unbelievably yummy. Again, if you are a fan of the main ingredients that holds true. If you are not, you’re still going to love it, but should maybe think about the effort put into it. To illustrate, my significant other kept complimenting on itย but would keep bringing on thatย Jaffa cake is the winner. So, Jaffa cake is what he gets for his B-day, not mine.

Matcha Green Tea Powder

This is the second ingredient I’ve been a huge fan of. Theย Japanese green tea powder has been used in many matcha green tea recipes, even on this page alone. Avoiding milk, I miss matcha latte a lot. Been thinking of ideas for a keto or LCHF version. Any ideas on your side? Maybe a mix of heavy cream and unsweetened almond milk would work? Not a big challenge lover but still want to dig into a matcha cake? Try the cloud cakeย instead, designed especially for egg fasting. Lots of fat and low carbs guaranteed there. Pistachio keto cake recipe You can read about health benefits of matcha all over the web. This time, I’ve combined all this healthiness with the not-so-healthy but oh-so-delicious nuts. The colors match … and the flavors do too! Pistachio keto cake recipe

Low Carb Cake

This is a low-carb birthday cake. It was my birthday recently, and I decided to bake myself a treat … to put together the flavors I love the most. It resembled spongey matcha latte, enhanced with pistachio crust and pistachio marzipan. And the dark chocolate, of course. It does take time and is intended for people who like a bit of challenge. I dare you. ๐Ÿ˜‰
