How to Make Keto Mochi
This low carb twist on a traditional Japanese mochi has no rice and no added sugar.
3 1/2 tbsp inulin powder
- 2 tbsp unflavored whey protein powder
2 1/2 tsp egg white powder
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp sweetener
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 tbsp coconut milk
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp keto hazelnut spread
- food coloring, optional
In a small glass bowl, whisk together inulin powder, protein powder, egg white powder, xanthan gum and salt.
Using an electric mixer, slowly mix in the coconut milk. Add a few drops of food coloring if desired.
Place a steamer basket inside a large pot and fill with 1-2 inches of water. Place the bowl with your mixture on top of the steamer basket. Cover the pot and boil over high heat to steam for 30 minutes.
Remove bowl and mix in coconut oil and sweetener. Let cool slightly. Knead on a plate or countertop until smooth and dough is just a little tacky. Roll into nine small balls and set aside.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Mix in 1 tablespoon of coconut milk and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and stringy. Stir in the sugar free chocolate hazelnut spread. Remove from heat and let sit until cool enough to handle.
To assemble. Roll out each ball with a rolling pin or use the palm of your hand to press dough into a small thin circle. Add a small dollop of filling to the center and fold in edges. Roll ball in your hand to seal the edges. Repeat with remaining balls.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
