Soft Keto Buns…I'm not going to lie, when I was trying to decide what to call these, I almost called them English muffins! They reallllly remind me of them if you cut these and half and toast them with some butter and jam (my favourite way to eat them). BUT these also work great as hamburger buns if you make 5 instead of 6 buns and cook them a tad longer. So I had to stick with calling these Soft Keto Buns. As they are soft, and they do look like buns!
Keto Goat Cheese Tartlets…aka little bites of heaven.
These are DELICIOUS. I'm not just saying this. I ate 3 immediately after baking them and each time I kept saying “WOW”. Friends and family agreed. The pastry for these is perfect. You wouldn't even know it's low carb.
The pastry is flaky, buttery and has a fantastic crunch. When I first came up with this low carb flour combination I think I cheered out loud. I baked it on it's own to test it and when I tasted it I was in SO EXCITED. Like I'm talking, happy dancing around my kitchen, excited.
I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself for this recipe. I just made, dare I say it.. The Best Keto Croissants.
These are NOT fat head dough. I made them with a flour combination that I've found to work really well in low-carb pastries.
These Keto Croissants are yeast risen and made mainly with, vital wheat gluten, almond flour, coconut flour and oat fiber.
The Best Keto Croissants have beautiful layers, just like real croissants and pull apart exactly how you'd expect. The cold butter and milk is the key to creating these layers along with folding of the dough.
These Low Carb Bagels are amazing. Like I cannot contain my excitement.
I have been attempting low carb bread and bagel recipes for AGES AND AGES.
I feel like I've finally cracked the code.
These low carb bagels not only LOOK like real bagels, they also toast up perfectly like real ones!!
I'm actually almost in tears (okay not really) but I've missed bagels so much being on a keto diet and these are such a nice replacement. They also aren't hard to make! Sure anything yeast risen takes a bit of extra effort but these are worth it. Plus the flavour possibilities are endless…
Just a quick note, these bagels are NOT gluten-free but they are low-carb. You can totally eat these on a keto diet if you do not have a gluten allergy. Just as with anything, make sure they fit your daily carb count. (These are 5g of NET carbs each). If you'd like to read more about their main ingredient “Vital Wheat Gluten” then see my article here.
Have you ever gotten frustrated because as much as you love the keto way of eating.. you can't help but feel just a little jealous when you see someone eating a delicious sausage breakfast sandwich with that nice buttery biscuit on top..Sure you could just eat the sausage, but what fun is that? That's no breakfast sandwich.
Personally, I think anyone on a keto diet should not have to feel deprived. That's the ultimate goal of my blog and ALL of the recipes I create. They all are based off treats and meals that I enjoyed before keto and plan to CONTINUE to enjoy but with some minor changes and alterations ;).
