Tips for keto baking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes.  Like almond flour instead of wheat flour and stevia instead of cane sugar.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats.  Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like these Keto Mint Chocolate Cookies, Dark Chocolate Almond Bars or Keto Turtle Cookies and use them in your must bake list.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.

Flour Alternatives:

  • Almond flour is my personal favorite for consistency and flavour.  I like to purchase the Kirkland brand almond flour from Costco.
  • Coconut flour can sometimes be crumbly in my experience but good in combination with almond flour.  I like the Red Mill brand.
  • Rice flour is my least favorite in terms of consistency but a great alternative for those who may have allergies.

Sugar Alternatives:

  • Stevia is made from the Stevia leaf, I like to use both the granulated and powdered version of this in my recipes.  
  • Monk Fruit extract is made from Monk fruit, this is another great alternative that is low on the glycemic index.
  • Erythritol is a sugar alcohol and another popular low carb sweetener that can be used in baking.
