As it came out of the pan, he had zero patience on tasting it. Let me tell you, …

These Keto Muffin tops are a cross between a muffin and a sugar cookie. Cause who doesn’t love sugar cookies?? These freeze really well. In fact, I bake these up and store them in the freezer for a quick “on-the-go” breakfast option or when I want a sweet treat with my morning coffee.

Keto Tortilla Chips

64% Fat ~ 14% Net Carb ~ 22% Protein Nutrition information is for one full recipe so you can divide it as you wish. These do end up on the higher “carb” side, but your macros will come into line with fatty toppings such as guacamole, bacon or low carb cheese! Creating the perfect Keto Nacho Chip began with….Fathead Pizza Crust! If you’ve made the fathead pizza crust before, you’ll recognize the mozzarella cheese base. However, for low carb tortilla chips, JUST using mozzerella wasn’t cutting it.  We replaced a portion of the cheese with Romano. (Parmesan also works!)

Easy Keto Chips

Varies based on cheese used Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. As we have experimented with all different types of cheeses, our favorites are: If your cheese is sliced thicker (or you hand slice it), your baking time will be a little longer. Watch the keto chips closely towards the end of their baking time. When they stop bubbling in the middle, they are ready to take from the oven. These are delicious on their own! But you can also pair them with a variety of dips or guacamole!

Savory Keto Cloud Bread

67% fat ~ 4% net carb ~ 23% protein Soften your cream cheese so that it’s nice and squishy. You want it to mix in to the egg mixture easily. Hard cream cheese takes a long time to mix in and you’ll end up stirring a lot of the air out of the eggwhites which you don’t want to do! Avoid mixing your ingredients too much. This is why I strongly encourage you to warm your cream cheese so it’s at least lukewarm. You can substitute the Acacia Fiber with ground flax or ground psyllium husks (the powder). Both of …
