This Keto Marzipan recipe has got just 2g net carbs per serving. It's a great healthy take on a classic Italian bakery treat.
There are some things that I've really been missing, since we moved from Brooklyn.
And one of those things is the Italian bakeries. The kind were old men sit around drinking espresso and eating cannoli. And where you can find beautifully prepared marzipan treats made in the shape of animals, fruits and vegetables. So good.
Well, the good news is that you can make your own Keto marzipan at home.
The bad news is that I am not quite talented enough to pull off forming the marzipan into cute little animal shapes.
We'll just have to make do with ball shapes.
But we can dye them in fun colors and drizzle them with chocolate so there is that. These Keto marzipan treats are full of almondy goodness and only have 2g net carbs each. So relax with an espresso and a piece of marzipan.
And you'll almost feel like you are in Brooklyn.Print

Baking at Christmas is one of my favorite memories. I remember the year my mom decided on marzipan. We had so much fun making apples, oranges, and so many other fun shapes, coloring with little paintbrushes and food coloring. Our neighbors always looked forward to our Christmas plate, and they all loved these. (Peanut brittle was always included, and about 4 types of cookies.) So many of our recipes are tied to memories.
I completely agree. So many recipes on this site are classic holiday treats made over for a Keto diet. I've even got peanut brittle. https://www.resolutioneats.com/blog/quick-low-carb-keto-peanut-brittle/
What a cute and tasty treat! Fantastic idea to dye them and add a chocolate drizzle on top. Love that these are low carb too.
Thanks! I love it that you can use any color you like. I was thinking that a green version would look nice with the brown chocolate. Maybe next time I make them.
