Mustard Sardines Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | July 25

Continuing with our obsession with canned sardines, this recipe is another super easy and quick way to eat sardines! Treat it as an alternative to a tuna salad – you can pack these for lunch or spread them on top of some 5-minute Paleo bread for a quick sandwich or on top of some cucumber slices for a party snack.

If you’re unfamiliar with canned sardines, they’re cheap, easy to eat, and highly nutritious. Just remember to use sardines that are packed in olive oil (and not vegetable or seed oils), like these Wild Planet sardines.

Matcha Green Tea Latte Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | July 22

I’ve learnt a lot from being Paleo, and one of the main lessons is how to make lattes Paleo very quickly by swapping regular milk with coconut milk and changing the sweetener to a Paleo sweetener.

So, to make this delicious matcha green tea latte, I added in coconut milk and just omitted the sweetener (although you can add one in if you prefer). It’s a really easy recipe!

Nut-Free and Seed-Free Ketogenic Bread Recipes

Ketogenic Bread Recipes #paleo #recipes #glutenfree #keto http://paleomagazine.com/ketogenic-bread-recipes/
We know many of you may have nut allergies or seed allergies, so we’ve intentionally found several nut-free and seed-free ketogenic bread recipes for you to enjoy.

All of the keto bread recipes in this section use coconut flour instead of a nut or seed flour. For most nut-allergy sufferers, coconut flour is a great alternative for baking with. Also, coconut flour is low in carbohydrates so these breads can be enjoyed without kicking you out of ketosis.

If you’re not familiar with coconut flour, then it’s flour made from ground dried coconut meat. Most of the oils is also pressed out of the coconut meat along with the water, so coconut flour is mostly fiber!

When cooking with coconut flour, note that it does not behave like other flours because it doesn’t have hardly any fat or protein in it. So, if you don’t add some sort of binder and some sort of fat to the recipe, then you’ll end up creating something that falls apart and tastes really dry. Most low-carb bread recipes using just coconut flour will also use a lot of eggs as the eggs provide protein and fats to counteract the lack of those components in coconut flour. That’s why bread made using coconut flour can sometimes taste a bit eggy unfortunately.

Crackers and Flat Bread Ketogenic Recipes

Ketogenic Bread Recipes #paleo #recipes #glutenfree #keto http://paleomagazine.com/ketogenic-bread-recipes/
Sometimes, what you want to make is a flat bread or a cracker instead of a regular loaf of bread. Flat breads are great to go with curries or for loading salads on. And crackers are even better. Many people love crunchy textures, and keto crackers are a great way to enjoy some food with a crunch. We highly recommend spreading some guacamole or some liver pate on your crackers so that you can enjoy a delicious and super nutritious (and high fat) snack.

Almond Flour Ketogenic Bread Recipes

Ketogenic Bread Recipes #paleo #recipes #glutenfree #keto http://paleomagazine.com/ketogenic-bread-recipes/
If you’re looking for some great ketogenic bread recipes, then almond flour recipes will generally produce the best ones. Almond flour has more fat and more protein than coconut flour. That means the bread produced will be less dry and have a texture closer to regular wheat bread.

Almond flour is pretty easy to buy, but if you don’t have access to it, then you can make your own easily by just food processing some whole almonds. You’ll usually end up with a coarser flour (often called almond meal) than store-bought almond flour, but for most ketogenic recipes, it’ll work just fine.

Other nut flours can be used instead of almond flour as well, or if you want to play around with flavors, you can use a mixture of flours. Popular nut flour options include walnut flour, cashew flour, and pecan flours. However, note that while nuts and seeds are considered very low carb foods, they do still contain some carbohydrates (other than fiber). Check out our table here to see which nuts and seeds you shouldn’t eat too much of on a ketogenic diet.

We often get asked if it’s possible to just take a regular wheat flour bread recipe and switch out the wheat flour and put in coconut (or almond) flour instead. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple of a substitution and that’s why we recommend you follow one of these tried and tested ketogenic bread recipes instead of trying to cobble one together by yourself. If you just want to experiment, then please by all means, go ahead. But you might want to use one of these keto recipes as a starting point in your experiments.

If this is your first foray into making keto bread recipes, then we highly recommend giving this next recipe a try. It’s super easy and super quick to make. The Microwave Paleo Bread uses just 5 ingredients, and it takes just 5 minutes to make. That way, if you don’t like keto bread, you’ll find out very quickly and with very little effort!

Other Ketogenic Bread Recipes

Ketogenic Bread Recipes #paleo #recipes #glutenfree #keto http://paleomagazine.com/ketogenic-bread-recipes/
In our search for delicious keto bread recipes, we also found a bunch that didn’t quite fit into the other sections. So instead of throwing them out, we’ve listed them here so that you can give them a try at your leisure. All of these bread recipes use nuts or seeds (other than almond flour) as the base flour.

We’ve also added in a recipe for making bread crumbs – it’s not quite the same as bread, but it’s pretty close, and we thought this keto recipe might come in handy if you wanted to make some to scatter on a salad as a crouton substitute.

The next recipe in this list is very different from the others – this ketogenic bread recipe uses probiotic capsules to create a fermented bread taste. Give it a try if you get a chance as it’s definitely something different!

A quick note about flaxseed meal as it’s used in several ketogenic recipes for bread: We’ve found that flaxseeds, when ground, can go rancid very quickly. That’s why we don’t use it in our own recipes anymore. However, if you want to use flaxseed meal, then we recommend you make your own (just buy flax as a whole seed and then place it into a food processor or a coffee grinder and process well). That way you can use freshly ground flaxseed meal that isn’t rancid in recipes.

Chocolate Almond Fat Bomb Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Low Carb]

Louise Hendon | May 30

It’s hard to resist these chocolate almond fat bombs – they melt in your mouth like a chocolate truffle and fill you up with fantastic fats. And of course, they taste amazing! So give this Paleo and Keto fat bomb recipe a try. (For more info about a Ketogenic diet, click here).

Each chocolate almond fat bomb is then decorated by topping each one with an almond. If you’re not a fan of stevia, then use a bit of raw honey in this recipe instead (or use a mix of stevia and raw honey so you can still keep the flavor great but the carb count low).

Just make sure to store these in the fridge as they will melt quickly at room temperature.

Layered Peppermint Patties Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | May 18

These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.

Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!

If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.

Almond Butter Fudge Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | May 12

If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).

This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

Creamy Cauliflower Mash Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | April 29

I love it when people try this recipe and think it’s mashed potatoes. This amazing creamy Paleo side dish is made only from cauliflowers. Then by adding in coconut milk and ghee and blending it really really well, you can create a super creamy and delicious dish that will fool your family and friends.

If you’re not on AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol), then add in a bit of vanilla extract or use alcohol-free vanilla extract. The vanilla really adds to this creamy cauliflower mash recipe.

This dish is also great for those looking to lose weight but miss their mashed potatoes or those who have blood sugar issues as this creamy cauliflower mash recipe is very low in carbohydrates, and the fats in the dish also helps to not spike your blood sugar.

Personally, I think it just tastes amazing. Even just thinking about it makes me hungry!

Creamy Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free]

Louise Hendon | April 22

Pasta was one of my staples during college. You just boil some pasta and dump some store-bought tomato sauce on top and dinner was ready. It was fast, easy, and quite delicious. Just not very healthy…

Then I realized I could recreate the same meal almost as quickly but with low carb, ketogenic, and Paleo ingredients!

There are tons of different ways to create Paleo pasta – from shirataki noodles, to cucumber noodles, to spiralized zucchini, to sweet potato noodles, to even using Paleo flours to roll out noodles of your own. And as for the tomato sauce, well that’s pretty easy too especially with some fresh basil leaves, which you can grow in a pot on your kitchen window sill.

And to make this recipe even more tasty and to add in some healthy fats, I added coconut milk into the tomato sauce.

So, next time you’re strapped for time to make dinner, try this creamy Paleo pasta recipe – it takes just 25 minutes from start to finish.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Biscotti Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 17

This is another recipe that my dad especially enjoys. It’s lightly sweetened with stevia and has a great flavor to it with the unsweetened cacao powder and unsweetened shredded coconut. When it first comes out of the oven, it’s pretty soft still, but you can let it dry out for longer by leaving it in the oven at a very low temperature or just by sitting it out. Or don’t bother waiting and just enjoy immediately.

There’s also some chia seeds in this recipe to help everything gel together better.
