Ryan is on Keto now; we absolutely started to change our diet a lot, which is so trendy and also healthier. Some books about Keto are very helpful because it is a new diet for him, and I have never done that before. As a blogger, I know about Bobby Parrish for a long time – I watch his videos at YouTube a lot to learn about the healthy snacks, produced foods and even that oil is good and which is bad. I love watching his videos and I also want to check out his book.
Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity

Keto and meal prep are both trending very strong now, and FlavCity is positioned as a food authority in this space. Good content always wins out, and the authors’ keto meal prep content is top class and presented in a personal way that ensures the casual consumer will choose the book over others.FlavCity is about Bobby and Dessi, two passionate home cooks who just want to hook you up with tasty, healthy recipes. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will have a total of 75 recipes, but one can argue that since many of the meal prep recipes contain 1-2 recipes each, it’s really so many more. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will be organized by breakfast, lunch, and dinner but also by the various proteins featured. Each recipe will have headnotes and 1-2 photos. The book will also have a dietary restriction chart that will easily identify each recipe as GF, DF, Paleo, etc.About Bobby Parrish:
Bobby Parrish is a passionate home cook who went to the best culinary school around: his mom’s kitchen. He wanted to be on the Food Network badly, and, when they rejected his application for the next Food Network star, he decided to start a YouTube channel. Four years and hundreds of thousands of fans later, it seems the Food Network made a mistake! Bobby and his wife Dessi started filming online cooking videos for the sole purpose of proving that healthy food can taste good and that home cooks can be rock stars in the kitchen. Little did they know that only a few years later, Bobby would quit his job in finance, Dessi would quit her job in corporate America, and they would turn their two-bedroom Chicago condo into a production studio involving all things food.
Here are some Keto meals we cooked at home, they are very yummy. But as a dessert lover, I can’t live without sweets. The good thing is this cookbook also introduces a lot of Keto Desserts recipes!
Apple Coffee Cake (Paleo, GF, DF)
Gooey Coffee Cake Recipe w/ Caramel Sauce – Gluten Free & Paleo Cake Recipe
This apple coffee cake is luscious and rich, spiced with cinnamon and cloves and topped with toasted walnuts and a vegan coconut caramel sauce! It’s paleo, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.
FOR THE CAKE:
- 3 eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
- 3/4 cup virgin coconut oil melted
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- ½ cup arrowroot starch or tapioca starch
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda + 2 teaspoons cream of tartar or 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- pinch salt
- 1 cup peeled and grated applesabout 2 medium sized apples (Honey Crisp, Gala or Fuji)
- 3/4 cup toasted walnuts chopped
FOR THE CARAMEL SAUCE
- 1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 375F.
Using a hand mixer beat the eggs and egg whites on high along with the coconut sugar and vanilla until fluffy and the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add the melted coconut oil and beat just to incorporate.
In a separate bowl mix in the almond flour and arrowroot starch along with the ground cinnamon, ground cloves, grated nutmeg, baking soda and cream of tartar (or baking powder), and salt. If you want to keep it strictly paleo use baking soda and cream of tartar, because baking powder typically has cornstarch in it.
Pour the egg mixture on top of the flour mixture and beat on medium for 30 seconds to incorporate.
Peel and grate the apples and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Measure one cup of the grated and squeezed apples and add it to the batter.
Mix well and pour into a 9-inch round springform baking pan lined on the bottom with parchment paper. An 8×10 inch baking pan also works for this purpose.
Top off with the toasted and chopped walnuts.
Bake in 375F oven for 38-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. The edges of the cake should be deep brown in color.
For the caramel sauce, place the coconut milk, coconut sugar and a couple of pinches of salt in a small pot and bring to boil.
Turn the heat down to low and simmer on low for about 40-50 minutes while stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. The sauce will reduce and turn deep caramel color. It’s done when it coats the back of the spoon. Keep in mind that it will thicken a little more once it cools down.
Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla paste or extract and set aside to cool. Makes about 8oz of caramel sauce. Once both cake and sauce have cooled down, drizzle the caramel sauce all over the cake and serve!
