12 Easy Keto Recipes You’ll Want to Make Right Now

Sooo, let’s talk keto.

Keto recipes, and the keto (or ketogenic) diet in general, have skyrocketed in popularity lately. I feel as though the food blog world has exploded with keto recipes – keto this, keto that. I’ve felt a bit behind on the whole keto diet craze, but a friend of mine recently started on a keto diet and asked me if I had any keto recipes to share.

That led to sorting through my blog recipes and asking her: ‘is this keto?’ ‘what about this one?’ (I confess I sometimes struggle to remember the specifics of the keto diet. I asked my friend if plantains were keto. She laughed. I reckon that is a no.)

I dug up quite a few keto recipes from my blog (yaye me – a keto-er without even knowing it) for this post, plus I included a few from fellow food bloggers. I’m quite happy with the results, and I hope you enjoy them too.

Oh, and you’ll be happy to know these recipes are all easy keto recipes – nothing too complex. Sticking to a diet (keto or otherwise) is difficult enough, so the recipes should be simple.

Let’s get on with those keto recipes.

Keto Diet Food List

If you’ve scratched your head while reading this post and said ‘ket-o-what?’ – it is a ‘low carb, high fat’ diet. A keto diet food list includes foods such as:

  • Fatty cuts of meat
  • Oils like coconut and and olive
  • Butter and ghee
  • Low carb vegetables

No grains, and most keto recipes don’t include fruit unless it’s a small portion of the recipe. (And no plantains, as I learned.)
