Our Most Popular Keto Recipes

May 20, 2019

When we set out to discover which of our keto-friendly recipes were fan favorites, we were a little surprised to learn that preferences were all over the culinary map. No shockers that our trendy treats were hits on Instagram, such as our keto donut holes or sweet potato avocado toast, but we also found that standbys like Sausage and Egg Breakfast Bites and our Egg Roll Bowl stood their ground among flash-in-the-pan favorites.

Pesto Keto Cauliflower Pizza

Keto followers are often relieved when they see cauliflower crust on a restaurant menu or in the frozen aisle at the grocery store, but you can’t always count on the ingredients in these low-carb crusts to be keto (or sometimes even healthful). Try making your own keto pizza at home instead. If you don’t have a food processor, you can buy already-riced cauliflower. The rest is a snap.

Keto Donut Holes

These four-ingredient, no-bake, no-fry donut holes are perfect for when you want a slightly sweet bite that won’t kick you off your keto regimen. Macadamia nuts provide an unctuous base that, when pulverized in a food processor or high-speed blender, develop a texture similar to cookie dough. Simply roll the buttery dough into balls, chill, then roll in powdered (or granulated, if you’re a member of the grainy sweet camp) natural sweetener.

Egg Roll Bowl

This one will kick those Asian takeout cravings to the curb. Bust this one out when you feel too lazy to cook because, really, the dish is as simple as browning ground pork then dumping in a bag of coleslaw mix and stirring until cooked. Hard to believe, but the restaurant-quality sauce is simply Primal Kitchen No-Soy Teriyaki, coconut aminos, and fresh lime juice. Garnish with green onions, toasted sesame seeds, and chopped nuts—or not if you can't be bothered. All the same, dinner will be done faster than a delivery person could make it to your door.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Bites

Make-ahead breakfasts are pretty much the only option on busy weekday mornings (aside from fasting) when getting kids ready for school, walking and feeding the dog, waiting for your turn to shower and get ready for work, etc. To avoid the frozen waffle or cold cereal sad breakfast (not to mention the additives and excess sugar), whip up a sheet pan or cast-iron skillet of these sausage and egg breakfast bites.

These cakey, fluffy keto donuts scratch the itch for those times when you’re feeling nostalgic or ready to jump ship and “cheat.” These donuts have everything you’d expect from a traditional cake recipe: a tender and moist crumb from the egg white, butter, and pumpkin puree trifecta. If you’re very strict keto, the carb count may be a bit high for you—at 11.7 net grams—but these can be fit into a flexible plan for those occasional moments when you want to splurge.
