1. Keto Breakfast Bites

If you're bad about making time for breakfast, this grab-and-go treat will help you get into the habit without complicating your morning routine.

Bake off a full sheet and enjoy them all week long.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 350º F and grease a large baking sheet.

While your oven is preheating, cook and drain your breakfast sausage. Then set it aside to cool.

Combine room-temperature sausage with cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Continue stirring until there are no cream cheese lumps left.

Stir in eggs, cheese, coconut flour, and baking powder. Then chill your mixture for 5-10 minutes.

Use a small cookie scoop to make 32 bite-sized balls and distribute them evenly on your baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 mintues.

2. Keto Pre Workout Smoothie

This protein-packed drink goes down easy. Add more ice for a frothier mix, and feel free to substitute a non-nut butter like tahini or sunflower to avoid allergens.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut or almond butter
  • 3 tbsp monk fruit
  • ¼ cup heavy cream, canned coconut cream, or avocado
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in a blender pitcher and pulse to combine. You can also add a scoop of keto protein powder if you want a bigger boost. Check out this post if you're looking for a keto pre workout supplement.

3. Keto Avocado Fries

These fat bombs are the perfect substitute for French fries, bringing any weeknight meal together in a snap. Just be sure to select perfectly ripe avocados that are still a bit firm. If they are overly soft, they will fall apart during breading.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 cups ground pork rinds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 2 tbsp water

Slice your avocados into 1/4 inch strips. Then, prepare your bowls for breading.

In bowl number 1, you'll mix the almond flour, cajun seasoning, and salt. Bowl number 2 should contain your eggs and water, whisked together to combine thoroughly. Bowl number 3 should have the rest of your dry ingredients - the ground pork rinds, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

First, dip each avocado slice into the almond flour mixture to lightly coat the outside. You'll need to work in batches.

Then, dip each coated avocado slice into the egg mixture and shake gently to remove any excess. Dredge the moist avocado slices in your pork rind mixture, ensuring that each has a visible crust.

Place a layer of breaded avocado fries in your air fryer's basket and spray lightly with avocado oil or olive oil. Set your air fryer to 400º F and fry the avocados for 6 minutes.

Flip and fry for an additional 6 minutes on the other side. Working in batches, continue frying all of your avocados. Blot with paper towels if needed and serve warm.

4. Keto Turkey Pumpkin Chili

This easy-to-make meal is filling, satisfying, and totally fall-friendly. Serve each steaming bowl topped with shredded cheese, cubed avocado, sour cream, or all of the above!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 medium green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 6-8 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Saute green peppers and garlic in oil over medium-high heat until the garlic is fragrant. Be careful not to burn it, or your dish will have a bitter aftertaste.

Add ground turkey to the same pan and cook thoroughly, breaking it into bite-sized pieces as it cooks.

Add your cooked turkey mixture to the slow cooker. Then add the rest of your ingredients and stir well to combine.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

This recipe works particularly well for meal prep and freeze-ahead dinners. And, while it packs plenty of flavor, it isn't too spicy for kids and those with sensitive palates to enjoy.

5. Keto Cake

Want to have your cake and eat it too? With this recipe, you can!

This delicious keto birthday cake is perfect for any occasion, not just a special day. And, it tastes just like the real thing.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup monk fruit
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 serving keto vanilla frosting

Preheat your oven to 350º F, and line 2 round 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well and set aside.

Using a stand or hand mixer, cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy, about 8 minutes. Then add the eggs one at a time, beating until fully incorporated after each.

Add milk and vanilla, then your dry ingredients, and beat until you reach a smooth batter consistency.

Divide your batter evenly between the cake pans and smooth the tops out. Then, bake for 22-25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow your cakes to cook completely, then remove them from the pans and frost. Remember, a warm cake will cause your icing to melt, resulting in a sticky sloppy mess - DO NOT rush this step!

Keto Vanilla Frosting

You can change this recipe's flavor easily, by adding 1/2 cup cocoa powder, or other fun flavors. Try something fall-focused like cinnamon and spices, or mix it up with an extract other than vanilla - lemon, peppermint, or whatever else you like.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar substitute
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine sugar substitute and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until combined and smooth. Then, add vanilla extract and continue beating until you reach the desired texture.

For frosting that's too thick, add milk 1/2 tsp at a time. For frosting that's too thin, add a few tsp of sugar substitute.
