keto recipe: Irish potatoes

Can you believe that it wasn't until I was in my 20's working at the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce that I had my first Irish potato?! Needless to say, after that first bite I was totally hooked!

After trying my Keto Irish Potato recipe, you'll be feeling lucky all year round. These are definitely the pot of fat-fueled gold at the end of the rainbow!

Keto Irish Potatoes

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted Kerrygold butter, softened at room temperature
  • 8 oz Neufchatel cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (mine is alcohol-free from Trader Joe's)
  • 1/2 cup So Nourished powdered erythritol
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (I use Trader Joe's)
  • 1 scoop Perfect Keto chocolate MCT oil powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions

  1. Use a handheld electric mixer to beat together the butter and Neufchatel cheese until creamy.
  2. Add in all of the remaining ingredients except the ground cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa powder.
  3. Place the mixture in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. You want it to be hardened enough to handle and form into small "potatoes".
  4. In a small dish, combine the ground cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa powder. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil and spread the cinnamon-cocoa mixture all over the sheet.
  5. Remove the mixture from the freezer and use your hands to form into small potatoes - smaller than the size of a quarter. You will get about 20 (I made 22).
  6. Roll the "potatoes" in the ground cinnamon and let them sit on the sheet.
  7. Place them back in the freezer for another 20-30 minutes to harden. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
