Mini Keto Soda Bread Loaf

Keto Mini Soda Bread Loaf
Keto Mini Soda Bread Loaf

I play around a lot with bread, and this was another attempt. The texture is great and you should give it a try. Baked using bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), eggs, and a combination of almond and coconut flours, this bread took a few attempts to get me to this point. Since ingredients are pricey (and I want you to succeed first time) I encourage you to follow the recipe closely. The loaf you shape (which is fairly small) will slice into approximately 8 mini slices, but the dense texture makes each slice rather filling. The macros are calculated per two slices of (35g / 1.2oz) each, so adjust accordingly. Enjoy topped with cream cheese or goat’s cheese and smoked salmon for a posh afternoon tea option, like I did here.

Low-carb Prosciutto ‘Muffins’

Keto Prosciutto Muffins
Keto Prosciutto Muffins

This is just a quick post to show how lovely the Keto Breakfast Muffins are that I posted earlier today. A good spread of unsalted, grass-fed butter and topped with best-quality prosciutto and you have a quick lunch sorted for two people! My Keto Breakfast Muffins recipe (which is used in this recipe idea) makes two muffins, which are then essentially halved. Macros are calculated per one serving being two halves, exactly as pictured.

Keto Breakfast Muffins

Keto Breakfast Muffins
Keto Breakfast Muffins

These are quite similar to my Quick Keto Chia Bread recipe I posted last week, except I made these in ramekins which create perfect little muffin shapes (which I then sliced in half). This recipe will make 2 muffins and yield 4 slices, as pictured. The macros have been calculated per 1 serving (1 muffin cut into 2 slices). They can also be toasted by simply frying in a little olive oil. Top with a poached egg or butter and good-quality prosciutto, like I did on my Low-carb Prosciutto Muffins or (if you are very ambitious) make a super-posh Keto Salmon Eggs Benedict. Enjoy!

Quick Chia Bread (Keto)

90 second Keto Microwave Chia Bread
90 second Keto Microwave Chia Bread

I have to admit, even in LBK (Life Before Keto) I rarely ate bread. And when I did indulge, I always regretted it afterwards: I felt bloated and miserable and wouldn’t poop for a week (no bacon butty is worth that), so I didn’t miss it much when starting keto. However, being human and all, the craving for a slice of toast with butter-and-Bovril still slaps me through the face every now and again and I am well-chuffed with this alternative, where I used almond flour, extra-fine almond flour and ground chia seeds to achieve a lovely ‘bread’ texture and flavour. Give it a try and then pat yourself on the back for being so dedicated…

Toasted Cheese & Tomato (using Quick Keto Chia Bread)

Keto Toasted Cheese
Keto Toasted Cheese

Another fab (and super-simple) idea using a slice of the Quick Keto Chia Bread: Keto toasted cheese & tomato sarnies! I used regular strong Cheddar cheese and tomato and calculated the macros for your benefit. Of course, its nothing fancy but it will hit the spot. One serving is one open slice, as pictured, but double it up and have two if your daily macros allow it…

Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters with Spicy Tomato Relish

Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters

These courgette cheese fritters are enhanced by the addition of a spicy tomato relish, which really is the star of the show as it cuts through the richness and adds a spicy, sweet and acidic freshness. These fritters may be a little too rich and too high in protein to be served as a side dish, but they will make a great breakfast or light lunch option at 2.6g carbs per serving. Squeezing all the moisture from the grated courgettes is essential, and I used a piece of inexpensive muslin / cheesecloth to do this and I highly advise you do too. Be sure to check out the other Breakfast ideas on the site.

One night I attempted a pita bread – and they turned out fantastic coming in at only 3.9g carbs per entire pita! If you want to make it a more substantial meal, add some good-quality prosciutto after baking – see pic at the end).

Keto Nachos

Keto Nachos

Cheesy, crispy keto nachos that can be used to scoop up a generous serving of Guacamole! The basic concept of this recipe was based on very thinly rolled Fathead dough before both sides being crisped up in the oven. Try this fool-proof version, then play around changing up the cheese or herbs I used…

Keto Onion Rings

Keto Onion Rings

Just because you have given up flour doesn’t mean you can’t crumb-and-fry food anymore! I simply combined blitzed lean pork crackling with nutritional yeast flakes (<-my new favourite ingredient) and fried as normal. Absolutely incredible flavours and perfect to have on the side of your bunless burger. Leaner crackling is preferred for this recipe, so I used Mr Porky’s Crispy Pork Strips – which I have seen available at Tesco and Sainsbury’s here in the UK. If you like the idea of crumbing-and-frying this way, check out the Keto Jalapeno Poppers recipe.

Low-carb Buffalo Wings

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Another way to Funnyman’s heart: CHICKEN WINGS! These are basted in a great keto marinade, similar to the one I made for the Keto Ribs, with the addition of a sprinkling of chili flakes scattered over at the end. Delicious for lazy Saturday afternoons while he watches the rugby. Definitely made to be enjoyed with your hands: Get messy!

Keto Cloud Bread

Keto Cloud Bread
Keto Cloud Bread

I want to start by saying I did not invent this ‘Cloud Bread’. I am sure there is a great story behind the concept, but I am ashamed to say I haven’t even researched what that story is – I simply wanted to give it a go myself and post my version of keto cloud bread. After a slightly failed first attempt (at trying other versions I saw online), I made it my mission to improve what I had seen drawing from my own experience in the kitchen. The recipe will make 6, but essentially this means 6 halves (in other words – 3 sandwiches / 3 burgers). If you want more, double the recipe and use a second tray when cooking. I must admit, it’s not my favourite ‘bread’ option, but worth a shot anyway as it may be yours. (Be sure to also check out the Breads section on this site for my other creations). These will keep well in the fridge for up to 2/3 days.

Brie Mushrooms with Red Onion Chutney (Keto)

Keto Grilled Brie Mushrooms

This lovely small meal of grilled brie mushrooms can be served either as an appetiser for your next fancy dinner party, or enjoyed as a light meal along with some fresh salad leaves. The red onions are cooked down for a while on a very low heat, and their jammy sweetness balances the oozy Brie just perfectly. The general marrying of the two flavours are worth knowing, even for those that don’t like mushrooms. Some examples include Brie and onion jam keto sandwiches or toppings for grilled steak. And for those that LOVE the idea of a big, black mushroom – do this exact dish as it is written here and top your bun-less burger with it – you will never consider a bacon and Cheddar topping again!
