Who needs wheat-based pancake mix when eggs, cheese, and almond flour exist? Once you try these keto pancakes, you’ll never go back. Instead of syrup, top them with a drizzle of melted peanut butter, a handful of berries, or crumbled bacon.
Make a few easy swaps—almond and coconut flour in the crust, Stevia instead of sugar in the cheesecake mixture—and voila. You’ve transformed a high-carb cheesecake into a keto-approved dessert that tastes just like the real thing.
Keto Biscuits and Gravy
What’s better than a warm biscuit straight from the oven? The warm biscuits with gooey gravy in Keto for Carb Lovers, that’s what.
For fluffy, cheesy biscuits, combine 1 cup almond flour, 2 large eggs (beaten), 1/2 cup shredded cheddar, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Pour into a greased muffin tin and bake at 425 for 12 to 14 minutes.
Named for its “light as a cloud” texture, cloud bread is so simple (only five ingredients!) and quick to prepare (40 minutes from start to finish), you’ll wonder why everyone isn’t making it.
When it comes to zoodles, it’s all about the sauce. The zoodles shown here are smothered in a luxuriously rich bacon cream sauce that will leave you wondering how you ever lived without it.
Sub in almond flour for wheat flour, add some cheese, and you’ve got bagel dough that doesn’t need to rise. You don’t even need to knead it.
Baked cheese gives you the same crunch as wheat.
Mix 2 cups shredded cheddar, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, 2 teaspoons chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika. Evenly spread the mixture on a sheet pan. Bake at 400 for 10 to 12 minutes.
Load it up with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
Keto Chicken and Waffles
The world’s most perfect comfort food gets a delicious keto makeover in Keto for Carb Lovers—because how could you live without chicken and waffles?!
For the chicken coating, you can create crunch with a mixture of pork rinds, mayo, grated Parmesan, salt and pepper. For the waffles, eggs, almond flour, cheddar cheese, milk, sour cream, baking powder, salt and pepper create that fluffy consistency everyone loves.
You’re going to want to put this one on auto-rotation.
To make the cauliflower lasagna “noodles,” line a rimmed half sheet pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat 3 eggs, then stir in a 12-ounce package of riced cauliflower, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, and some Koster salt. Spread the cauliflower mixture onto your sheet pan in an even layer about 3/4-inch thick.
Bake until firm and golden. Cool 10 minutes. Cut into strips and you’re ready to layer your lasagna.
Keto Mozzarella Sticks
Almond flour to the rescue, yet again! To make the coating, whisk 1 egg with a tablespoon of water. Season with salt and pepper. Separately, mix 1/2 cup almond flour and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Then dip 6 string cheese sticks in the egg mixture, and then in the almond flour mixture. Freeze for 15 minutes. Cook the sticks in an oiled skillet over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes per side.
