Keto Cherry Chocolate Brownies
Sponsored Chocolate and cherries are truly a match made in heaven. Indulge in the softest, most decadent and flavorful brownie you can have without all the sugar!

Ingredients
6 tbsp butter
4 oz Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Dutch process cocoa powder
1 cup allulose, or 3/4 cup erythritol
2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
Pinch salt
2 large eggs, room temp
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries – thawed, drained, and halved
2 oz Lily’s Milk Chocolate Style Baking Chips, optional plus more on top

Directions
1. Heat oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment. Crack the two eggs in a bowl to let them get closer to room temp and set your cherries out to thaw.

2. Melt the butter in the microwave for 25 seconds in a glass bowl. Add the chocolate chips to the hot butter and stir until all of the chips are melted. Set aside.

3. Whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, ground flax, xanthan gum and salt.

4. Beat the eggs with a fork or a hand mixer until combined. Pour in the warm chocolate-butter mixture and stir. The batter will become very thick.

5. Make sure your cherries are mostly drained of any excess liquid and slice each in half. Fold in the cherries and additional chocolate chips (if using) and spread into the prepared pan.

6. Bake for 17–20 minutes and check for browning at the edges. The brownies are done when the center is still soft but doesn’t jiggle.

7. Remove from the oven and, if you are fancy, sprinkle a handful more of the chocolate chips on top and let them melt. Slice and enjoy!

Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies
The best kind of sandwiches are the ones made with cookies, dipped in chocolate, and without all the added sugar! These beauties are also gluten-free.

Ingredients
Cookie Base:
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated Swerve, or sweetener of choice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp xanthan gum
6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1-2 tbsp cold water, if needed

Cream Filling:
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup powdered erythritol
2 tsp heavy cream
1/4 tsp non-alcohol mint extract

Chocolate Coating:
5 oz Lily’s Milk or Dark Chocolate
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp non-alcohol mint extract

Directions
Make the cookies:

1. Heat oven to 350°F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment.

2. Whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sweetener and xanthan gum.

3. Cut in the soft butter and 1 tbsp cold water until a stiff dough forms. Use your hands to work the dough, and if it’s too stiff, add another tbsp of water.

4. Place the dough on a large piece of parchment and cover with plastic cling wrap. Roll into a thin round, about 1/4 inch thick, and use a round 2-inch cookie cutter (or small glass!) to cut the dough and place cookies on the prepared baking sheet.

5. Re-roll the scraps and repeat until you are out of dough. Bake the cookies for 8–12 minutes; let cool before filling.

Make the filling:

1. Combine butter, powdered sweetener, and mint extract in a medium mixing bowl. Beat together until smooth, add the heavy cream, and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Taste and adjust the mint flavor to your preference.

2. Spread or pipe filling onto half of the cooled cookies and top with another to make a sandwich.

3. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil, stir in mint extract.

4. Dip or drizzle in minty chocolate and arrange on a piece of wax paper or parchment. Let cool and serve!
