I just made your bread recipe. I very carefully followed the recipe and instructions. The final result was awesome. Thanks! One variation I had was the 20 minute proof time. It hadn’t risen much at all in 20 minutes so I left it. It about doubled in an hour and 10 minutes. It held most of it rise even after slicing it warm. I’ll definitely be making more.

Is Bacon bad for diabetics


This recipe provides a fun spin on chia pudding. Instead of it just being one flavor, we’re layering several to create a Neapolitan style dessert. First, we create the base chia seed pudding recipe.  Then we divide it up into three bowls and create the vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors.  If you want to dress this up like the pictures, then layer some thinly sliced strawberries inside.  You can top with whipped cream and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder too.  We also added ...
Great Low Carb Bread Company Plain Bread. Great Low Carb Bread Company makes their plain bread loaf from a handful of wheat-based ingredients, so it mimics the texture of wheat flour-based bread a bit better than other keto-friendly bread options. Each slice has 1 gram of net carbs. However, it should be avoided if you are gluten intolerant in any way. You can order it from Amazon by clicking this link.

keto recipes chicken breast


I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none. I have been beating these egg whites for almost 40 minutes with an electric hand mixer and I still have not yet come to the consistency as your photo shows for stiff egg whites. So my questions are, is this amount of time normal for beating the egg whites? And what amount of time would you recommend if this is not the normal amount of time?

Do almonds lower testosterone


I have an EXTREMELY ignorant question…. Does tenting mean you just cover it? Or do you actually make it look like a little tent and keep the ends open so the air can get it? I just made this, and just covered it. The bread looked AWESOME after the first 40 minutes but then after covering it it came out a lot flatter. First slice was still pretty yummy, even though I probably should have cooked it a little longer. THANKS!!
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?
WOWWWW!!! This chicken was amazing!! It tastes even better than our regular fried chicken! We loved it and are having it again this weekend! Hubby and me are now on our 2nd week of keto and I’m sooo glad i was told by a friend about your blog.. this is the first recipe I try and I’m so looking forward to making many more. Thank you so much for sharing!!! 🙂 

How do you starve without being hungry


Hi I made the Easy paleo keto bread 5 ingredients. It was moist, texture was good but it didn’t turn out completely white, more like a pale yellow and the crust was overdone. I opted for honey as my sweetner because this bread is for my nephew who has autism and we want to keep it as natural as possible. I baked the bread exactly at 325 for 40mins uncovered and then another 40mins covered (tent). What could I do next time to achieve a white bread with golden crust?

What do I eat after a workout


I know you've been asking for a mug cake that does not use almond flour, and I think you will find that this recipe really fits the bill! The cake is dense, but moist, and so easy to create. In the directions, we tell you to mix the ingredients in a separate bowl. This is so that the ingredients are fully incorporated and you won't hit any spots of dry cake mix while eating your mug. If you prefer to mix everything in the mug you can, of course, do that too! If you don't want to use ...

Why am I so thirsty on keto diet


I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.

Does diet soda cause insulin spike


Made this bread and am HAPPY to say it came out looking like the picture and tasted delicious! Thanks for this recipe. I followed it to the T used a metal loaf pan inside measure 8 3/4″ long x 2 3/4″ deep. Cooked on middle rack of electric oven for 1 hr 15 min. To get the cup of egg whites it took 7 eggs. I used the yolks for home made ice cream and scrambled eggs next day. Agree the Psyllium husk powder lends a earthy taste. Bob’s Red Mill brand used and ordered from Amazon. Also the Lakes brand grass fed beef gelatin a must and that too from Amazon (its good for overall health so can use in many ways).

intermittent fasting options


As I'm sure you know, eating chocolate bars and lollipops aren't exactly conducive to keeping in ketosis. But you can still enjoy treats on a Keto diet...like these amazing Keto peppermint cups. The delicious filling uses a mixture of coconut butter and coconut oil flavored with peppermint extract and stevia. But, be careful, peppermint tends to be pretty strong, so a little goes a long way.

Is coconut flour OK for diabetics


Hi Jodi, I haven’t tried that, but don’t think it would work well for this recipe. First, yeast needs sugar (for it to consume – it’s not typically in the end result), so you’d need to add that. But also, just with how we are making the bread fluffy with beaten egg whites, I don’t think yeast would work. If you want to try adding yeast to a low carb bread, I would do it with this low carb bread recipe instead.
Creating a soufflé was something that I thought would be impossible.  I've watched enough Food Network to know that these things are temperamental and the downfall of many contestants.  Is a soufflé something you can really make at home?  Turns out it's easier than you think! This keto cheese soufflé is puffy, soft, and delicious. Traditional soufflés use a flour roux to help provide stability, but we replace it with much more keto-friendly almond flour.  Just make sure that you really ...

What is keto360


Hi Barbara, I haven’t tried making this recipe into a lemon blueberry bread, but what you’d want to do is add a bit more sweetener (a few tablespoons? depending on how sweet you want it), lemon zest (not lemon juice to avoid too much liquid), and fold in blueberries carefully to avoid breaking down the whites. As for the other recipe you tried, it shouldn’t be gritty (though this one you’re looking at is definitely more fluffy) – did you use a super finely ground blanched almond flour?
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!
Is chicken your favorite meat? Well, we’ve got the meal plan just for you. Get ready for crispy chicken wings, quesadillas, tacos, Italian-flavored casseroles, and Indian butter chicken. We even have a pizza crust made of ground chicken. And no chicken meal plan is complete without eggs, right? They’re the perfect way to kick off your keto day. With choices like this, there’s no risk you’ll ever get bored.
This was so yummy! Great for sandwiches. I’m a total amateur when it comes to baking and I was so sure I’d messed this up. The instructions seem a little intimidating- I usually avoid all recipes that even involve separating eggs. I don’t have a hand mixer so used my immersion blender in too wide/flat of a bowl for fluffing the eggs, so they didn’t get thoroughly “fluffed.” But despite that, the consistency of the bread was great. It was just shorter than I’d have expected. So happy I tried this! Great instructions and tips. 

Zucchini. If you like the crisp freshness of zucchini, then turn it into a zucchini boat. A zucchini boat is like a healthier, keto-friendly version of an open-faced sandwich. Simply scoop out most of the contents of the zucchini and fill it with your favorite savory ingredients. Need some ideas? Try out our Broccoli Chicken Zucchini Boats or our Sausage Zucchini Boats. You can even make two of them and turn it into a sub sandwich. If you do this, however, make sure you have extra napkins handy — it will get messy.
Hi Ashley, Usually egg whites take just a few minutes to beat to stiff peaks. Definitely not 40 minutes. Old eggs can sometimes be the culprit, or a bit of leftover fat/grease from something else in the bowl can prevent stiff peaks (this is especially common when using a plastic bowl). Lastly, it could be that your mixer isn’t powerful enough to beat that many whites to stiff peaks, but this reason is a last resort and probably less likely. Cream of tartar is a huge help in reaching stiff peaks so you can try adding that next time.

How do I stop pooping constantly


Keto Bread Recipe - Four Ways - quick and simple way to make low carb, individual keto bread rolls, in ramekins and just a few healthy ingredients. You can either bake it in the microwave for 90 seconds or in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The the-easiest, the-best kept bread recipe I've ever tried. There are four different options available - you can make cheese keto bread,  broccoli ketogenic bread, bacon and spinach and feta. And of course you can leave it as it is, if you prefer plain kept bread  rolls.
Another way I enjoy cooking large batches of chicken breast is sous vide. With a water bath and immersion circulator, I can cook enormous amounts of chicken all at once to the perfect temperature. In fact, just last week when I made my keto chicken cordon bleu, I threw a bunch of chicken breasts in Ziplocs in the water to use for meals throughout the week. It’s super easy, minimal cleanup, and the meat is perfectly tender. If you’re getting into meal prep and are as carnivorous as I am, I would highly recommend looking into one of these sous vide kitchen gadgets!

Is popcorn allowed in keto diet


I havie tried MANY bread recipes and they are all so eggy. They taste like burnt eggs! I LOVE the recipes on this site. You can tell she has tried them until they work. I make her bread recipes I. my breadmaker and they are fabulous. They do not rise quite as much as a regular loaf but taste fantastic. I do add 1 1/2 tsp yeast and a 1/2 tsp of sugar to activate the yeast; I put these in with a 1/4 cup of hot water and userhe quick bread setting. It is the only low carb bread I have tried that actually smells like bread when it comes out of the bread machine! My family was home for a visit and they all loved it. I had just told my husband that I wished this woman would come out with a recipe book….I got on this morning and what do you know!! We have loved most of her recipes. Her cream cheese pancakes made in a waffle maker with a few blueberries added in, along with sugar free syrup are FANTASTIC! I felt like I was eating at cracker barrel:)

How many eggs should I eat for breakfast on keto


Stir fries and sautees are so quick to make that they are the best meals when you are short of time for cooking. This one only takes five minutes and is filling and delicious. This is a combination of ground beef and vegetables flavored with garlic and oregano, but you could use whatever ground meat you have; turkey works really well here. This is a low carb meal suitable for the keto diet.

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.

Can you make whipped cream with half and half


Well… it turned out beautifully. It rose evenly, it was light, fluffy and baked through. It tasted very good, both plain and toasted with butter. I truthfully do not know if I would add the butter the next time I make a loaf because I was so pleased with this version. I will likely reduce the erythritol to 1 tablespoon or less for a more subtle sweetness in the future. This recipe has so many flavour possibilities and I look forward to trying out all of my ideas using this excellent base. It is also good to know that it can be made without the additional fat component. Don’t get me wrong, I am keto and a committed high fat enthusiast but slathering some fat on top of the bread… butter, pâté, nut butter… will work just fine for me.
Made this 2 times. The 2nd batch turned out much better and more delicious . I use coconut sugar in place of the sweetner listed. However, I am having trouble with the egg whites and the consistency pictured. My egg whites turn into a foamy meringue. I have made meringue before, and I knew it would stiffen up, and it did. Otherwise the rise was much better on the 2nd attempt and looked very much like the bread pictured. I seemed to fold in the mixture better 2nd time around. 1st time it looked like I had pockets of uncooked dough though the temp reading at 2 locations showed above 200 deg F. I blamed it on not folding the mixture with the eggs well enough.

keto diet recipes 14 day


The best part about this bread is that it makes it so much easier to eat a low carb diet. Yes, there are some savage beasts (joking) that don’t miss bread at all and are happy to just eat bacon seven times a day, but if you’re anything like me, bread was a staple of your diet growing up and you still have a look of yearning in your eyes when they drop that bread basket in the middle of the table at family dinner. I feel your pain. This low carb bread recipe is your shoulder to cry on.
