Bacon & Chive Fat Bombs (Keto)

I rarely feel truly hungry (a quick high-five to the keto lifestyle), but I do still enjoy a quick, convenient snack. On days when my biltong or droe wors has not yet dried (or times in lock-down when we had no nuts or pork scratchings in the house), these little morsels made a fantastic high fat snack to satiate us until dinnertime. (Dinner is usually when we have our only proper meal of the day – and its usually something special that I take my time with – here are some ideas as to what I make at suppertime in casa de Palmer!). Enjoy these delicious balls of flavour – they freeze well making your once-a-week-effort worth the time and effort! THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)

Spicy Paprika Macadamia Nuts

Next to biltong and droewors, NUTS are probably the most popular go-to snack in our house. They just tick all the boxes as a perfect keto snack: high in fat, fibre and protein. We try and steer clear of the store-bought roasted nuts for several reasons: many mixed nuts packets (while convenient) usually include peanuts and almost always feature vegetable oil – two things which should be avoided on keto. However… in the spirit of being honest and transparent, I would be lying if I said we didn’t always have a packet kicking about. Anyway, honesty aside… during COVID-19 lock down, I found a packet of halved macadamia nuts in the pantry and got to work straight away when Funnyman said he was craving something spicy as a snack. These did not last long in our house – they were delicious!

South African ‘Droe Wors’ (Keto)

South Africa really nails it when it comes to offering us the Most Delicious Moreish Keto Snacks Ever and I could write a thousand words on how much I love biltong and droewors! If you have never tried either, please do so (and ‘jerky’ or other cured sausages just don’t count: sorry – its just not the same thing). I often make my own biltong, but was recently inspired by my friend Leigh Ann who used my South African ‘Boerewors‘ recipe to create her own droe wors (translation: South African dried sausage) in a biltong maker (not available in USA), so I decided it was time I did the same (obviously not using the pork). Thank you Leigh Ann – you inspired me to do something I should have done ages ago! And now with COVID-19 lock down – I will be doing this every week. Not only is my version clean because I know exactly what has gone into it, but there is something super-special about whipping out a cool gadget (a sausage stuffer) and making your own delicious keto snacks. Macros indicate a 30g (1.06oz) serving, which is approximately one-third of the long dried beef stick.

Best-ever Roasted Macadamia Nuts (Keto)

Keto Roasted Macadamia Snacks

Just look at those macros – these are the ULTIMATE fat snacks! Macadamias are my favourite nut: they are high in fat and mind-blowingly rich in flavour when roasted. If you can spend 15 minutes once or twice a week to prepare a batch of these, you will have plenty of servings of these super-tasty, satisfying fat snacks. After roasting them, I scattered over a pinch of salt and Swerve® as soon as they came out of the oven, then allowed them to cool completely before storing in a sealed container. The macros are calculated on a portion size of 35g / 1.2oz roasted macadamia nuts – which is ample for a quick snack to get those fat macros higher, or satisfy your desire to crunch on something delicious between meals. They smell like popcorn and taste like heaven!
