Cinnamon & Sugar Bites
I have seen many recipes floating around for Keto “Cinnamon Toast Crunch” and decided to give it a try, with my own twist of course. The Lakanto golden sweetener has a brown sugar flavor and I believe it gives it a much richer. You can cut these into larger squares to be used like graham crackers and smaller squares to be used as …. ((gasp)) … cereal! I chose to cut them in small cracker size to use to dip into my cream cheese dip with sugar free strawberry jello. It was quite reminiscent of Strawberry Pretzel Salad.
140 g – almond flour
35 g – coconut flour
1 teaspoon – xanthan gum
1 teaspoon – baking powder (aluminum free)
2 teaspoons – cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon – salt
3 tablespoons – Swerve, granular
3 tablespoons – Lakanto, golden
3 teaspoons – vanilla extract (I use spice island corn syrup free)
54 g – butter, cold and diced (Kerry gold)
40 g – butter, melted (Kerry gold)
2 tablespoons – Swerve, granular
2 teaspoons – cinnamon
Mix together all dry ingredients into food processor and pulse to blend well. Add vanilla extract and pulse several times. Add cold cubes of butter and pulse until blended together thoroughly. Lastly, add egg and pulse until mixture is combined and dough ball has formed.
Place ball of dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll. Roll the dough very thin (not see through thin but close). Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut strips horizontally and vertically. Use a fork to poke holes into each square.
Place into the oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, remove from oven and brush sugar topping mixture evenly across dough. Insert back into the oven for 10-15 minutes. Watch closely as all ovens bake differently to make sure they do not burn.
When you remove from the oven remove the bites from the pan to allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
** I did a trial when rolling the dough and rolled one portion slightly thicker than the other. The thicker bites came out much less crispy and had a bit more of a gritty texture.

Pearls: Coconut oil may replace butter for dairy free.
Pearls: do not allow dough to sit long before rolling as dough starts to crumble.
