My husband was just put on a low carb diet for a health issue he is having. He was really missing bread so I made this for him. He is super, super picky and LOVED this bread. I made two loaves at the same time and froze the second. Just thawed it to eat and it takes the same as when it came out of the oven. The hubs eats a slice, toasted with avocado with breakfast every morning. Thanks for this recipe!

Cant lose weight with intermittent fasting


Chicken Kiev has been one of my favorite dishes since childhood, so once grown up with kids, I was encouraged to make my own. Well, because I had used cocktail sticks to keep the chicken together, they resembled a Sputnik! Then I found this recipe and my prayers were answered! Paleo Kiev has been my garlicky go-to for years and I hope you enjoy it too.

Just made this and as a normal bread lover, I am very impressed! But do have a question. Can you over cook this? Mine seems a bit light inside, like a teenie bit mooshy, and can’t see it holding up in a sandwich. The temp was at 200 inside but I had already had it in for like 50 minutes longer than the posted time and I could still hear a little squish but didn’t want to over cook.

Here is the perfect do-it-yourself lunch for a summertime family picnic! Just arrange the meat and vegetables on a plate and allow each family member to construct their own wraps according to their taste. This can be a good way to encourage youngsters and reluctant veggie-dodgers to try different textures and flavors as the crunchy vegetables are often preferred to cooked ones!


Let me show you my list of Keto Ground Beef Recipes to give you loads of ideas to try out, whether you are looking for a speedy supper dish or a hearty and filling main meal.

Sushi Nori Wraps. If you like sushi, then you’ll love using nori as a keto-friendly wrap. When you add moist ingredients to it, the nori will transform from a brittle chip to a durable, pliable wrap. What’s even better is that nori wraps have no net carbs at all and only come with ten calories per sheet. Plus, they are easy to find in the grocery store, and you can even get them shipped directly to your house (just search for Nori Wraps on Amazon).
I have a question I hope you can set me straight. I was putting the almond flour in my dry measuring cup and it didn’t seem right. I checked around the internet and found someone who said always weigh almond flour. So, I did. 8oz. = 1 cup so 8oz almond flour. It looks like enough but so much more than one dry measure cup. I got as far as doing the food processor part and realized I needed more eggs. So, I’m kinda in holding until I go to the store so, I thought I’d ask.. have I made a terrible mistake and wasted a lot of supplies or am I cool?
Hi Melissa, Are you beating the whole eggs? It needs to be egg whites only. Whole eggs will never form peaks. Adding a little cream of tartar helps, as well as making sure you start with a very clean bowl (preferably not plastic if you’re having issues). Having the egg whites at room temperature can be a little easier, too, though I usually don’t need to. Hope this answers your question!

How much weight can I lose in a week with intermittent fasting


I tried this recipe today and I’m blown away. I haven’t started Keto yet but I am soon. I’ve been trying recipes out, and I truly didn’t expect this to come out right the first time because I’ve never whipped egg whites or folded them into anything. I’m a terrible baker. It was so easy! Even my toddler and husband loves this! I didn’t use the sweetener and love the way it tastes!

Is Bacon bad for diabetics


Hi Christy, It might be a little more difficult, but in theory possible. You’d need to stir the dry ingredients, then use a hand mixer instead of food processor to mix them with the butter. Then, after beating the egg whites separately, you’d need to mix in part of them, trying not to break them down, then fold in the rest once it’s easier to fold.
To further enhance the flavor and health benefits, this recipe uses virgin olive oil as well. Virgin olive oil contains numerous health promoting compounds. One of the most studied compounds found in the oil is a phenolic compound called oleocanthal. Multiple studies have found that oleocanthal possesses similar anti-inflammatory properties to ibuprofen, which makes virgin olive oil a great addition to the diet to help reduce acute and chronic inflammation.

Can you eat too much fat on the keto diet


If I did not know that this was not bread made from wheat flour, I would not have known the difference – taste-wise. I added all of the ‘optional’ ingredients. Now, this loaf is not nearly the size of a regular loaf of bread. But it is incredibly filling. I slice it a touch thinner than 1/2 inch to make, what looks like, a finger sandwich. It satisfies my love for sandwiches and fills my up.

This skillet dinner coats delicious chicken thighs with a creamy jalapeno cheese sauce.  They're an easy weeknight dinner because you don't have to dirty a ton of dishes to create it.  All you need is an oven-safe skillet and an extra plate. The chicken skin becomes superbly crispy, and we love smothering it with the sauce.  However, the sauce will cause the crisp to soften a bit.  If you'd like to keep it as crisp as possible then plate your dinner with the sauce on the bottom, and then ...
I so miss bread fresh from the oven (I’m going to be adding the yeast)! You are absolutely correct about beaten egg whites creating air pockets. My family has always made buttermilk pancakes from scratch and we always separate the eggs, beat the whites to soft peaks and fold them in at the last minute. The pancakes rise beautifully! Have you tried this with your keto pancakes?

Is dry mouth a sign of ketosis


Chicken and citrus go really well together and this dish is no exception. The garlic, lemon and oregano give the meat a real Mediterranean flavor. This dish would be ideal for a summer barbecue and the recipe is versatile – change the veggies for your favorites, or use pork or shrimp instead of the chicken. Just remember to soak wooden skewers before loading them or they can burn.

When I first saw this amazing shrimp curry it was the beautiful color that got my attention, like sunshine in a bowl! This keto curry would be ideal if a friend drops by for lunch unexpectedly. After all, we all have a bag of shrimp hiding in the depths of the freezer! You don’t even have to have an Instant Pot as there are instructions here for stove top too, and although it will take longer you are only talking five minutes instead of one!
Hi Kaylee, I’ve substituted raw sunflower seeds ground dry in my bullet for almonds. I found it to taste better. Expect the color to be similar to the color of the seeds. I sub 113g sunflower seeds for every 1 cup of almond flour. As for eggs, shop around. I get pastured eggs for berween $4 to $6.50. Usually, on sale. Like this week, sprouts has buy 1get one free so that’s 2 dozens for $6.50. Even Publix to my surprise will mark down their pastture raised eggs to $3.50/dozen.

Can I eat rice noodles on Candida Diet


Can you put any yeast in the mixture? And if you did, would it help it rise more in addition to tasing more “yeasty”? I have been making (with great results) a browner, wheat colored bread from a recipe called Diedre’s For Real Low Carb Bread. It uses yeast and only has one rise after kneading with my dough hook attachment on my mixer. I would like to try some white bread.

I had the same problem. Everything blended beautifully, rose in oven, then fell. Toothpick came out clean after 45 min of baking. I let it cool and then cut into it this morning and it has raw spots throughout the loaf. I am so disappointed because I killed a dozen eggs to make it and really don’t want to do it again. I wonder if the oven needs to be warmer and the cooking time needs to be increased?

Should you wear a bra to bed


This was my first time baking anything EVER and it turned out perfectly! I do find that the bread does taste a tad “eggy” but it’s soft and a perfect replacement for sandwich bread. I can finally have grilled cheese sandwiches again!! Next time around, I’ll double the recipe because the bread was smaller than expected. Thanks for this amazing recipe!

I’ve been on Keto for about a week. I’m one of those people who said I could never give carbs or sugar. I’m still not sure that I am, but for week one so far so good. I made your keto bread and it really helped me get through the weekend. I had a brunch to attend at a relative’s house and I was able to bring this bread, toast it up and partake of all the toppings they had to offer. And as I’m typing I’m eating a tuna melt made by frying the bread in butter and topping with cheese and Tuna. I feel like I’m eating a real lunch. So for now, thanks for helping me power on!
Hi Eva, That’s awesome that you are helping your son this way. I haven’t tried this with other tools, but you could probably use either the blender or the food processor. The key is to pulse in step 5, not just constantly blend, so that the whites don’t fully break down. Other than that, it should be pretty similar. As for the yolks, if you don’t want to make creme brulee, I usually just put a couple extras into an omelet (or breakfast casserole, or any other dish requiring cooked eggs) mixed with whole eggs.
Made this bread yesterday. I was very sceptical whether it would seem like bread. I do not have a food processor. So I mixed the dry ingredients by hand. And folded the first half into them. Then I folded the ingredients as per the recipe and I was very pleasantly surprised. It turned out great and I will make it again. As for the egg yolks I made scrambled eggs and had them with my new bread for breakfast.

Does lemon water increase stomach acid


I followed the recipe to a tee, used all recommended ingredients. I’ve attempted making it twice, the first time I didn’t have a food processor and that was a complete fail. The second time, today, I bought a food processor and attempted it again. The egg whites were fluffy but never got to stiff peaks… maybe my eggs were too cold? Anyway, I baked for 30 mins, and it wasn’t even golden brown on the top so I didn’t put the foil on time and cooked it another 20 mins. I just pulled it out about 20 mins ago and it is golden brown. However, it is a very moist almost like a banana bread texture. I just popped it back in the oven hoping it will “dry up”. Any recommendations? Do I need to cook for and hour ?

What is the cheapest food to eat


The keto diet may be all about the fat, but that doesn’t mean protein doesn’t play an important role too. Too much of it, and you’re no longer in ketosis. Too little of it, and you risk losing important muscle mass. So while you’re busy cooking everything in butter, don’t forget that 15 to 30 percent of your calories should be coming from a protein source. And what’s one of the most popular, accessible, and easy-to-cook proteins available? Chicken, of course.
However, if you would rather have something a little more cheesy instead, then use the ingredients for the Extra Cheesy keto breadsticks instead. Not only will you get the health benefits of the extra cheese, but you will also give your body a good dose of allicin — a plant compound that is found in garlic powder and onion powder. Studies have found that allicin can helps decrease the risk of heart disease and boost brain healing from traumatic injury.

We actually wrote about this in the post. Here’s the crockpot directions, “To make Crack Chicken in a slow cooker, add the chicken and cream cheese to the slow cooker. Whisk together the water, vinegar, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dill, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl and pour on top. Cook on LOW for 8 hours. Remove the chicken and shred it, and then add it back to the pot and stir in the cheddar. Cook the bacon in a skillet on the stovetop until crispy; cool the bacon and then crumble it on top.”

I don’t comment on recipes often. Maybe 5 times in my life. But I made this tonight, and it is some of the best chicken I’ve ever made; keto or not. One thing I changed, and one I would change next time. I noticed that the recipe called for the skin to be removed. I left the skin on half, and took it off half. I preferred it with the skin. Your mileage may vary. The thing I would change: I would cut the thyme in half next time. It was a little more prevalent than my tastes prefer. But not enough to give this any less than 5 stars!

This is the perfect use for chicken leftovers. Pair them with some fresh leafy greens and a good dip or dressing and your low-carb and keto lunch or dinner is served. There are many traditional salads with a modern keto twist featuring the mighty chicken. Check out the Keto Caesar salad, the Keto chopped hoagie bowl, the delicious Keto Cobb salad with an amazing ranch dressing, and of course our popular Keto chicken BLT salad.

Is eating steak good for you


This is a fantastic recipe for anyone who is a bit worried about grilling chicken, as the lime in the marinade will start to cure or ‘cook’ the meat as it soaks. It also gives the meat that zingy taste of summer, making these kebabs popular for family barbecues. If you have any leftovers, serve them up next day on top of a fresh salad for a delicious light meal.

Are tomatoes high in carbs


So, I’m newer to cooking, for sure, but I’ve been using your website to expand my horizons while on the keto diet, and I LOVE it! This chicken was amazing. I’ve done various pieces of chicken with it, and it’s perfect! I get that little crunch that I miss for sure. I’ve been cooking for my boyfriend so much more now, and he’s loving it. He’s normally the chef in the relationship, but I’m switching things up. Love your recipes and I look forward to trying so many more. Thank you so much for all your ideas! They are massively appreciated by this novice chef! Bless you!
Instead of all purpose flour or any other grain-based flour, you’ll be using fiber-rich coconut flour and flaxseed meal to make your very own keto bread. Each slice will have 8 grams of fiber that will feed the good bacteria in your gut and bolster gut health. As a result, your immune system, cognitive function, and emotional well-being will all be enhanced as well.
Hi Al, I’m glad you liked the taste and am honored you chose my site for your first ever comment! 🙂 I haven’t tried this recipe in a bread machine. Most likely the biggest issue with your bread being flat is that you didn’t fold the egg whites in – breaking them down would definitely make the bread flat. I haven’t tried adding yolks as most people want their bread less egg-y, not more. I’d have some concerns about the bread being too “wet” by adding them though, even if you like an eggy taste. A better option might be to brush the top with yolks for color.

Hi Brenda, There are various reasons but the most common one is that coconut flour is extremely absorbent and needs a lot of eggs to offset how much moisture it absorbs. If you used a liquid like milk or water, it would fall apart. That being said, this recipe is not dry or dense. Did you try making it? Whipping the egg whites creates the exact opposite effect and the bread turns out light and fluffy. Hope you’ll give it a try!

Can you make whipped cream with half and half


I made dressing/stuffing out of this bread! I cut the bread into slices, then cut the slices into cubes. I put them on a metal pan and into my toaster oven on low temperature and let them crisp up. It takes a good while, but they DO get crisp! Then I have my croutons for the dressing. The dressing I made was delicious. I think the next time I make the bread to use for croutons I’m going to add onion powder and sage to the mixture before baking so the croutons will be seasoned some before I begin making the dressing! Love this bread! It is the most like wheat flour bread that I have tried! Thanks Maya!

I made your bread yesterday. You are right–it IS the best tasting keto bread yet! And I’ve made dozens of recipes through the years! I enlarged it–made a recipe and a half, and used a 9×5 glass pan. I confess, I did make a mess of it at one point. I used carton egg whites, and they didn’t do as well as fresh egg whites do. I ended up with a lot of foam on top and liquid on the bottom. I tried adding the dough to it, but had trouble smoothing out the many lumps. Soooo, I used my hand mixer to mix the whole mess. I put it in the pan and decided to just throw it out, thinking it could never turn into a good loaf of bread. But I went ahead and put it in the oven, and it turned out great! The rise was higher than any other almond flour bread I’ve ever made. So it’s obviously a very “forgivable” recipe. Many thanks!!
This recipe uses cauliflower to stretch the lobster without losing the wonderful flavor. It’s so delicious you can eat it straight out of the bowl or wrapped in romaine lettuce. We highly suggest using mayo made from olive, coconut, or avocado oil instead of ones made using sunflower or canola oil. Keep a jar of this healthy avocado mayo in your fridge to make quick and easy keto recipes.
Cooking meat like chicken in cooking foil is the best way to ensure the meat stays juicy and tender and allows the chicken to absorb the flavor of the garlic. The resulting chicken breast can be eaten hot or cold, served with a salad or simply with a salsa, and it also makes an excellent dish for your lunchbox for work. Fresh herbs could also be added to the garlic and ghee to boost the flavor even more!

My bread came out a teeny bit “eggy”…which wasn’t bad, I still enjoyed it. Maybe some egg yolk made it in the batter??? Anyway, the slight egginess made me think of French toast. So with the last few pieces, that’s what I made. I mixed an egg, heavy cream, and a little vanilla to coat the bread…used browned butter to sub for syrup…then topped off with Swerve confectioners sugar. It was delicious!

Chicken enchiladas made with a green chile sauce is one of my favorite dinners.  Trying to recreate enchiladas with low-carb tortillas can be a pain, especially if you try and make them yourself.  With these, we've used softened cabbage leaves to roll up the filling.  It's an easy and nutritious option! The enchiladas are stuffed with shredded chicken, onions, and shredded cheese.  They're dolloped with a sauce made from chicken broth, sour cream, and green chilis.  The result is flavorful, ...
