Some days I just get an itch for something really rich and sweet to add to my already sweet dessert. Also, I think frostings and icings are just festive–and show that you cared enough to go that little extra bit.
That’s why I love making this Keto Maple Pecan Frosting to go on top of a muffin, cookies, or cakes. I have a few keto-friendly desserts that I like to make and being able to add a little bit of this frosting for those harder craving days is a plus.
Keto Maple Pecan Frosting is a type of cream cheese frosting which is, personally, my favorite type of frosting. It’s got such a rich and creamy flavor with a thick texture that makes it perfect for topping anything you like. I’m not going to lie, I’ve thought about trying it on pancakes before because I have no doubt it would make for some delicious pancakes.

If you’re like me, you have those days where you feel like you have everything under control and you’re the queen of the kitchen.
However, you have other days where absolutely nothing is together and you’re just the jester of the kitchen.
On those days, I make Keto Maple Pecan Frosting because it takes only a few minutes to make.
Although it’s never necessarily good to eat your stress, it’s nice to have that bit of sweet tooth curbed during stressful days with something that’s healthy and still in line with your way of eating.
