  • 1/4 cup Water


  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice


  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Orange Juice


  • 3/4 cup (6 oz.) Fresh or Frozen Cranberries


  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest 


  • 1 Cinnamon Stick

Eggnog Pancakes
  • 1/4 cup melted Butter 


  • 2 large Eggs, room temperature


  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract


  • 1 1/4 cups Keto Eggnog


  • 3 tablespoons Granular Sugar-Free Sweetener


  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour 


  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour 


  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder


  • 1/8 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt


  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 


  • 3 tablespoons Canola Oil 


Cranberry Sauce

Place the granular sugar-free sweetener, water, lemon juice, and orange juice into a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Place the mixture over medium-high heat and let it come to a boil. 


Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir in the cranberries, lemon zest, cinnamon stick, and cardamom. Let the cranberry sauce come to a boil. 


Decrease the flame to medium-low and cook the cranberry sauce for 10-15 minutes until it thickens and develops a rich red color. 


Remove the cranberry sauce from the stove, and remove the cinnamon stick. Let the cranberry sauce cool completely. 

Eggnog Pancakes

Preheat the oven to 200 °F.


Whisk the melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, keto eggnog, and granular sugar-free sweetener in a medium bowl until combined. 


Whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon in a separate large bowl until combined. 


Add the melted butter egg mixture to the dry almond flour mixture and stir until combined. Let the eggnog pancake batter sit for 5 minutes. 


Lightly grease a cast-iron skillet with a tablespoon of canola oil. Place it over medium-high heat. 


Add 1/4 cup of the eggnog pancake batter into the skillet. Repeat twice to add two more eggnog pancakes to the skillet. 


Cook the eggnog pancakes for 3-4 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of each eggnog pancake. Then, flip the eggnog pancakes and cook them for another 2-3 minutes. 


Remove the eggnog pancakes from the skillet and place them onto a baking sheet. Place the eggnog pancakes into the oven. 


Repeat steps 6-8, greasing the cast-iron skillet with a tablespoon of oil before adding the eggnog pancake batter.
