Ingredients

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans black beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper (1/2 of a pepper)

  • 2 Tablespoonketchup, mayo, or BBQ sauce
  • pinch salt + pepper


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Spread beans evenly onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until slightly dried out.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté olive oil, chopped pepper, onion, and garlic over medium heat until peppers and onions are soft, about 5-6 minutes. Gently blot some of the moisture out. Place in a large bowl or in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Stir or pulse everything together, then add the black beans. Mash with a fork or pulse the mixture, leaving some larger chunks of beans.
  3. Form into patties– about 1/3 cup of mixture in each.
  4. To bake: Place patties on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 375°F (191°C) for 10 minutes on each side, 20 minutes total. To grill: Place patties on greased aluminum foil and grill 8 minutes on each side. Heat temperature is personal preference as all grills differ. Generally, black bean burgers should grill on medium-high heat about 350°F (177°C) – 400°F (204°C).
  5. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Reese's Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Reese's Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies | #Chocolatechipbrowniecookies #Dessertrecipes #Deliciousdesserts #Cookiedesserts #Bakingrecipes #Sweetrecipes #Bestchocolatechipcookies #Bakingrecipes #Cookingrecipes #Deliciousdesserts #Cookingandbaking #Cookiesrecipeschocolatechip

Ingredients

  • Cookies :
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (103g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature*
  • 3/4 cup (185g) creamy peanut butter*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 18 Reese’s Miniature Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped
  • Drizzle :
  • 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Make the cookies: Toss the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl until combined. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together on medium speed until combined. On low speed, beat in the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Turn the mixer to high and beat until light in color and smooth. Turn the mixer to low and slowly pour in the dry ingredients. Mix until combined and a dough is formed.
  3. Cover tightly and chill the cookie dough for at least 1 hour (or up to 3 days). Chilling is mandatory.
  4. Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Take 1 Tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Take another 1 Tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Stick a peanut butter cup into one ball, kind of like a “cradle” as shown above. Top the peanut butter cup with other cookie dough ball and seal down the sides so that the peanut butter cup is securely stuffed inside. Roll the large cookie dough ball in your hands to ensure it’s smooth. Repeat with the rest of the dough and 18 peanut butter cups.
  5. Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes or until very lightly browned on the sides. Some cookies may be taller than others, depending how the peanut butter cup was positioned inside. Just press the cookies down a bit to flatten them out. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Make the drizzle: melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together in the microwave, stirring often to prevent seizing. Add 1 teaspoon of shortening if the mixture isn’t smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
  7. Cookies stay fresh stored covered at room temperature for up to 7 days.

Keto Friendly Cheese Crackers {Low Carb}

Keto Friendly Cheese Crackers {Low Carb} | #Ketocheesecrackers #Ketocrackersrecipe #Nocarbdiets #Ketodietrecipes #Lowcarbeating #Ketogenicrecipes #Ketodinnerrecipes #Ketodessertrecipes #Cheesecrispsketo #Lowcarbmozzarellasticks #Ketoappetizers #Healthymozzarellasticks

Ingredients

  • Cracker Sized Deli Cheese Slices - I used Aged Cheddar French-Swiss, DutchGouda, and Havarti
  • 3/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Lay cheese slices flat to fill the cookie sheet. Leave a little bit of room between each slice. If they melt together it is no big deal as once they cool they will break apart easily. I used precut slices, but you can buy larger deli slices and cut them into smaller squares.
  4. Sprinkle spices on cheese slices.
  5. Bake for 23 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before eating. Once they cool you can easily break apart any cheese slices that have melted together.
  7. **Note: Baking time may vary due to variances in ovens and thickness of cheese. If the cheese isn't crunchy at 23 minutes, bake a little longer until they are. I would bake in 2-3 minute increments until I reached desired crispness.
