Keto Cream Puffs

I’m back in the kitchen!

The last two recipes were heavy. For dessert, I thought I’d go back to my roots- healthy takes on indulgent favourites.

What’s more delightful than cream puffs!

Instead of the butter and carb laden choux pastry, these cream puffs use whipped egg whites. Baking them creates a nice airy but firm texture

Sure, cream isn’t exactly low calorie, but it’s actually quite healthy… in moderation.

Oh yeah, did I mention how easy this is? 3 ingredients and no fancy techniques. It’s perfect for all those summer gatherings now that we can get back to seeing people.

Well, let’s get cooking!
