Are you ready for a Keto reset but not sure where to start? Here are the 10 most popular low carb and Keto recipes on Sugar Free Londoner.
Some of the recipes are tried and tested old favourites with hundreds of 5 star reader reviews, such as my almond cream cheese pancakes or Keto tortilla chips. Others I published during the last year and quickly gathered a huge following, such as the taco shells or the keto naan.
All recipes in this list are easy to make and super yummy. They are staples in my house and approved not only by 2 sensible adults, but also by my very critical test eaters aged 13 and 15.
Take a look and see which one you’d like to try next!
I posted this keto tortilla chips recipe back in 2017 and it’s become hugely popular. If you roll the dough out thinly, the chips become really crunchy.
We love them with dips such as guacamole, sour cream or with a red pepper dip I love (you oven roast red peppers and garlic, then blend with salt and paprika).
The chips are equally wonderful as nachos and some people have used the dough to make pizza bases and even taco shells.
My kids thought they tasted much better than Doritos!
Deliciously light and fluffy Keto pancakes! This recipe has been around forever and is in the top ten year after year.
I love these pancakes best the way they are. But you can also add a little baking powder to the mix to make them rise more, like American-style pancakes. Some people even use the dough to make waffles.
Most readers enjoy them with sweet toppings such as sugar free syrup or jams (this sugar free strawberry jam is my fave). Others leave out the sweetener and turn them into savoury pancakes, adding cheese, spinach and the like.
I have recently played around a little with the recipe. Check out these low carb cinnamon roll pancakes, which use the same basic recipe, plus a cinnamon swirl and cream cheese frosting!
It’s a super easy recipe, perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast.
I posted this recipe late in 2018. It’s a suuuper fudgy chocolate cake that you make using only 5 ingredients. How’s that for easy?!!
Friends, this is the mother of all chocolate cakes. It’s wonderfully rich and creamy and you’ll never guess it’s sugar free.
This cake is perfect when you’ve got a crowd coming over. And should you have any leftovers, you need to know that it freezes really well.
I have made this cake various times for dinner parties. The leftovers I cut into small squares and froze them. Then I enjoyed a piece here and there over the next few weeks as an afternoon treat.
If I could only choose one bread recipe to eat for the rest of the year, this would be the one.
This almond flour bread is made with, you guessed it, almond flour, but also psyllium husk. Psyllium is just wonderful in low carb bread – it gives a texture that resembles wholewheat bread.
The bread toasts well and works with sweet and savoury toppings.
I’ve successfully turned it into breadcrumbs and croutons. Recently I used the same recipe to make keto hot dog buns. Which means you can also use the dough to make lovely bread rolls. It is quite versatile!
Best of all, this bread does not taste eggy (one of the unfortunate downfalls of low carb bread)!
5.) Keto Taco Shells
I’m super proud of this recipe, which is also a newcomer in 2019. It came about when I experimented with easier ways to use fathead dough.
The classic fathead dough uses mozzarella, which is melted and then mixed with almond or coconut flour and an egg. It’s not difficult to combine the ingredients into a dough with a little practice, but some less experienced readers did run into problems.
For these taco shells, I blended the grated mozzarella until it became a fine powder, and then mixed in the other ingredients.
Thanks to this method, it’s not necessary to heat OR roll out the dough. You simply press it into place with your hands!
The result are wonderfully crispy taco shells, which you can fill with a classic Mexican ground beef filling or anything else you prefer.
Who doesn’t like soft cinnamon rolls, still warm from the oven, topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting?
For me, these are an afternoon treat, but I know many readers serve them for Sunday breakfast or brunch.
The rolls are fairly petite – the reason is that they are made with fathead dough, so a little goes a long way.
If you’re on keto, you’ve got to try this recipe. I always marvel at how versatile mozzarella dough is. It is delicious in sweet recipes like this one and mimics yeasty wheat dough perfectly.
Everybody needs a great classic brownie recipe and this is mine.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know I have a weakness for chocolate. From keto milk chocolate to chocolate avocado cake, if you’re looking for a chocolate recipe, you’ll probably find it on my website.
I am absolutely convinced this is the fudgiest, most chocolatey Keto brownie recipe ever. And judging by the amount of happy readers who have made this recipe, I’m probably right 😉
These Keto brownies are easy to make and freeze well. You could even add a raspberry or sugar free caramel swirl as a variation. If you’re a purist, enjoy them just as is. Bliss!
See? This is ANOTHER chocolate recipe of mine which has made it into the top 10. By the time I get to the end of this post, there’ll be four in total!
These chocolate donuts turned out so pretty, I couldn’t believe they were made by clumsy me. Seriously, if I saw these in a shop, I’d buy them.
The secret is using a silicone donut mould, which you must not overfill, or you’ll lose that precious donut hole in the middle. Then simply dunk them in dark or sugar free chocolate!
The recipe uses almond flour, but I’ve given amounts for coconut flour in the post as well – I know some of you have tree nut allergies so it’s good to have an alternative.
9. Keto Naan
Want a naan with your Indian curry? I’ve got the right recipe for you!
This is a coconut flour recipe that uses classic naan ingredients. I love the fact that it is egg free.
It tastes just divine when it’s freshly out of the oven – soft inside and with a gentle crunch in the crust.
If you’re after a supremely satisfying way to mop up curry, this naan will make you very, very happy.
With different herbs such as thyme and rosemary you could easily turn this recipe into a focaccia!
The last recipe that made it into the top 10 – again, you all wanted chocolatey goodness and here it is!
Nut butters make wonderful cookies (I found this out when I made these low carb peanut butter cookies), which can be either fudgy or crunchy depending on thickness and oven time.
This recipe uses almond butter and it’s a cross between a cookie and a brownie. In my eyes, that’s why it’s twice as good, obviously.
I’ve had readers tell me the recipe also works well with peanut butter, so if that’s what you’ve got in the house right now you can get baking straight away!
