As you know from my last article about the keto diet, the ketogenic diet can turn your body into a fat-burning machine. And you don’t have to be hungry while doing it. But even if you’re not ready to dive into recipes, you can always create your own with a delicious mix. If you consider yourself old school and want to go all-in, check out more than 125 recipes in a traditional cookbook.

1. Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons monk fruit
1-2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (add more if needed!)
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Don’t be afraid to use your hands. Roll into small balls, about a teaspoon, and place in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes.
2. Keto-Style Pancakes
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2-3 tbsp monk fruit or a few drops of stevia – I love vanilla stevia here.
5 large, pasture-raised eggs
1/3 cup unsweetened nut milk
1/4 cup avocado oil
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Large pinch of cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
*Optional add-ins: slivered almonds, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, walnuts.
*Toppings: melted coconut butter, coconut oil, ghee, a sprinkle of monk fruit, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and almond butter.
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. Add a touch more nut milk if it seems thick.
Preheat an oiled pan on the stove over medium-low heat. Spoon the batter onto the hot pan and form into circles. Cook about 2 minutes, until bubbles start to form. Put in any desired add-ins here. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes, until browned on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Plate and top with desired toppings. I love a combination of coconut butter, monk fruit, and cinnamon. A healthy dessert for breakfast.
3. Chocolate Keto Smoothie
1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
¼-½ cup water
½ frozen avocado
Large handful spinach
1-2 romaine leaves
1 tablespoon raw almond butter
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon coconut butter
Pinch of cinnamon
Stevia or monk fruit to taste
Handful of ice
Add all ingredients into a blender, blending until smooth and creamy.
4. Spicy Tahini Pasta W/ Kelp Noodles + Kale
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 Habanero pepper, seeded and chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 1 cup water
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Salt + pepper
- 2 packages kelp noodles
- 1 large bunch kale, washed, stemmed and roughly chopped
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
Rinse and soak kelp noodles in a large bowl of filtered water to soften while you prepare the sauce.
Heat a small skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Add the garlic and Habanero pepper for about 3 minutes. Transfer the garlic and Habanero pepper to blend, along with the tahini, water, and lemon juice. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper as necessary.
Add the second teaspoon of olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat and add onion. Cook until the onion becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Then add chopped kale and allow the kale to cook down and become tender. Consider adding a few tablespoons of water to prevent sticking. The kale is done when it is bright green, soft and tender.
Pour spicy tahini sauce into the skillet containing the kale and onion mixture. Remove kelp noodles from water and add to skillet. Heat until warmed through and serve immediately.
