almond flour recipes low carb

One of the first things you learn is to avoid regular flour on a ketogenic diet. And there’s a good reason for this.

Regular flour has tons of net carbs and very little fat. So, when you eat it, it can quickly kick you out of ketosis.

Regular flour is everywhere though. It’s in baked goods like cookies, bread, and cake.

It’s even in savory foods like pizza and chicken nuggets. So, how can you avoid it?

By using almond flour! Almond flour is lower in net carbs and higher in fat.

It is also very nutritious. It’s packed with nutrients like manganese, magnesium, and vitamin E.

Today, I’m sharing 25 ketogenic almond flour recipes. I’ve also included all the macros to help you keep track of your diet.

These dishes are delicious and good for you. So, be sure to stock up on some almond flour here!

1. Baked Chicken Nuggets

Wondering what to make for dinner? Chicken nuggets!

Kids love chicken nuggets, even the picky ones. However, your typical chicken nuggets are loaded with carbs.

These chicken nuggets contain only 4 grams of net carbs. As an added bonus, they contain 16 grams of fat, perfect for ketosis.

They’re also baked, not deep-fried. So, they’re much healthier for you.

They’re crisp, and super yummy thanks to the blend of seasonings. And making them is a breeze.

Simply dip your chicken pieces in an egg wash. Then dip them in your almond flour and seasoning mix.

Bake for 30 minutes and dinner is served! Also, it’s totally a low carb comfort food and that’s amazing.

And your family will definitely love them. These shrimp are nice and crispy- just like those at your favorite restaurant.

But the sauce is what truly makes the dish. It’s a sweet and spicy sauce that will keep you coming back for more.

To make it, you’ll need some Swerve sweetener. The great thing about Swerve is that it doesn’t leave a bitter aftertaste. You can pick some up here.

11. Appetizing Low Carb Doughnut Cookies

Low Carb Doughnut Cookies

The holidays are just around the corner. So, now is the time to think about your holiday baking.

And this can be particularly hard if you are following a low carb diet. After all, regular flour is full of carbs, right?

That’s where these low carb doughnut cookies come in handy. They’re soft doughnut-shaped cookies dipped in dark chocolate.

Dark chocolate gives these cookies a hint of bitterness. This provides a nice balance to the sweetness of the cookie.
