Kickstart your keto diet with my top 10 low carb recipes of 2020! From keto tortilla chips to almond cream cheese pancakes, these are the Sugar Fee Londoner recipes that went viral in 2020. Whether you're looking to start a low carb diet or whether you need some inspiration to get back on track, bookmark these tried and tested dishes!
I have been on a low carb diet for over 7 years now and have never looked back.
By cutting out the carbs I have managed to get a chronic inflammation issue under control and regained my health. I feel great and stay slim without trying whilst eating plenty of delicious food - including desserts!
I'm so convinced eating sugar free and low carb is the most important thing you can do for your health that I started this blog to chronicle my recipes.
I have hundreds of yummy keto recipes on my website, which I hope you'll browse at your own leisure. But if you're short on time today, here are the top 10 recipes of 2020!
My keto tortilla chips have been holding the number one spot for several years. I first posted this recipe in 2017 and it quickly became super popular. The recipe video has been shared millions of times on social media!
It's a fathead dough which contains mozzarella as a main ingredient. I am still amazed every time I make them that they do not taste of cheese!
The chips are wonderful with dips such as guacamole, sour cream or with my current favourite, a smoked salmon cream cheese dip with fresh dill.
Many readers also use the tortilla chips to make keto nachos and some even turn them into a sweet treat by dusting them in granulated sweetener and cinnamon!
The top rising post of 2020! You won't believe how many amazing comments I've had about this banana bread. It makes me so happy every time a reader posts another image of their keto banana bread they've just made.
Many people believe that banana is a forbidden fruit on the keto diet or even the low carb diet. But in my book, it's all about the right amount.
This banana bread contains ½ cup of mashed banana- that's about 1 large banana. Calculated across 8 slices, you're consuming no more than 1 bite of banana per slice - 4.4g net carbs per portion.
By using real banana instead of the banana extract you'll see in many other keto recipes, this bread is super moist and delicious.
My keto cinnamon rolls have moved up into the top 3! And they do deserve a top spot: These soft cinnamon rolls, still warm from the oven, topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting, are just to die for.
We love them as an afternoon treat, but a lot of readers serve them for Sunday breakfast or at their weekend brunch.
Just like the keto tortilla chips, the secret of the cinnamon rolls is a fat head dough. It mimics yeasty wheat dough perfectly.
Who else here likes a good curry? Well, I've got just the right bread for you to mop it up with.
This keto naan bread is a coconut flour recipe that contains all classic naan ingredients such as yoghurt.
It puffs up beautifully in the oven even though it is completely egg free unlike many other low carb breads.
Fresh out of the oven it is just divine - soft on the inside and with a gently crunchy crust.
This almond flour bread has held a spot in the top 10 ever since I posted it. For a good reason - it is super versatile and ALWAYS turns out well.
One of the issues people have with low carb bread is that they often taste eggy. Low carb bread is grain free and gluten free, which means it needs a binding agent. And inexperienced bakers will just throw a bunch of eggs at the problem!
I've eaten low carb for over 7 years now and I am happy to say that I have cracked keto bread baking. This bread is not eggy at all.
I love baking bread so much I've written a whole book about it - it's called Keto Bread Made Easy!
We love this bread toasted and un-toasted, with sweet and savoury toppings. I have even turned it into breadcrumbs and croutons. And if you like rolls, check out this recipe - I have used the dough to make delicious keto buns.
Another contender that has been in the top 10 for several years. What I love about this recipe is how easy it is! These keto pancakes are light and fluffy yet so satisfying and filling.
The recipe does not even require baking powder. However, some readers like to add some to make the pancakes puff up more, like American style pancakes.
I'm a bit of a purist and eat them with a few berries and sour cream, but my kids love them with sugar free syrup. You can even use the dough to make low carb waffles!
Want something a little more oh-la-la? I used the same basic recipe to make these low carb cinnamon roll pancakes. I've added a cinnamon swirl and cream cheese frosting. Bookmark these for a special occasion!
Tired of the greasy keto cheese shells that fill up the feed when you search for keto taco shells? This recipe is your answer.
It came about when I was experimenting with ways to make fathead dough easier.
For these keto taco shells, you simply blend the grated mozzarella until it turns into a fine powder, and then mix in all the other ingredients.
Thanks to this method, it’s not necessary to heat the dough or roll it out (which is where people often run into difficulties). All you need to do is press it into place with your hands!
We eat eat these keto taco shells regularly, filled with ground beef (use my keto taco seasoning to make it!) plus lettuce, tomato, red onion and sour cream.
I still can't believe this keto chocolate cake requires only 5 ingredients. And tastes incredibly awesome at the same time!
It is super rich and fudgy and never fails to wow my guests, whether they are following a keto diet or not. Seriously, you would never guess it is sugar free.
Whenever I have leftovers from this cake, I cut it into small squares and freeze them. That way, I can have a sugar free treat with my afternoon tea over the next few weeks.
Everybody needs a great chocolate chip cookie recipe in their life and this is mine. It's an adaptation of my mom's recipe which uses cream as the secret ingredient!
These keto cookies are soft and chewy on the inside and have a gently crunch on the outside. They are so good I always want to go for seconds!
I like to use the homemade sugar free chocolate chips from my blog to make them and sometimes I also add a pinch of sea salt for a bit of extra wow.
These are brilliant with kids and adults alike.
A newcomer at number 10 - my sugar free strawberry jam!
All you need to do is to cook down the fruit in a saucepan until most of the liquid evaporates. Then you add my SECRET INGREDIENT and Bob's your uncle!
