Homemade Cranberry Sauce - Keto and Low Carb

I made my own cranberry sauce and it is every bit as good as the traditional version with sugar!  See my recipe here to make it!

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups super fine almond flour

1/4 cup Oat Fiber (see note below)

1/2 cup cranberry sauce

2 eggs

1/3 cup sour cream

1/3 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup Brown Swerve

1/3 cup Swerve Confectioners

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon orange zest

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Pinch of salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F.

Add the flour, baking powder, oat fiber, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to a bowl and whisk together, then set aside.

In a separate bowl, add all of the wet ingredients, swerve and swerve brown, then mix using a hand mixer or whisk.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix just until combined.  

Fold in the chopped walnuts.

Add large drops of the cranberry sauce.  

Gently stir into the batter using a fork in a swirling motion.  

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted, comes out clean.

Allow to cool slightly before serving, but these are best served warm!

Note:  

The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe!  I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking!  It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with and is really worth buying.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. I buy it in the 16 ounce bag here.  The bag lasts a while, because you don’t need to use much in your recipes.

Oat Fiber, is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats.  Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outside husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber.  Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water and are not broken down in the digestive tract. So it’s low carb and Keto friendly!

These are just some of the great recipes you can make using Oat Fiber:
