44 Easy Keto Recipes You'll Want to Make Right Now (1)

Soooooo, 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 these 44 Must-Try 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 do not include fruit unless it is a small portion of the recipe. (And no plantains, as I learned.)
