Shoutout to /r/keto!


All mentions of flax meal / flour, almond meal / flour and coconut meal / flour are interchangable. They really are a personal preference, and they all do the job of replacing flour.

Xanthan gum, Guar gum and other odd ingredients you may find in these recipes can usually be picked up at specific health food stores. Large supermarkets often have an aisle dedicated to this sort of stuff as well. If in doubt, you can order most of it online.

Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • Cake
  • 180g / 6.3oz of Dark Chocolate (85% or higher) broken into small pieces
  • 5 Large Eggs, seperated
  • 240g / 8.4oz Hazelnuts
  • 1 cup sugar substitute (granulated is best)
  • 120g / 4.5oz unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Ganache
  • 250g / 8.8oz of the same dark chocolate
  • 125g / 4.4oz butter
  • 50ml / 1.7fl oz water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar substitute

Hazelnut Preperation

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F and roast hazelnuts for 10 - 15 minutes until the skins begin to split.

Remove the hazelnut skins by rubbing them in your hands (remember to let them cool down!) don't worry too much if some of the skins stay on.

Place hazelnuts in the freezer for now.

Once hazelnuts are cold, grind them up into pieces. (Be careful not to overdo it, as they will turn into a paste. Grinding them in small batches is easiest.)

Cake Batter Preperation

Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350°F.

Place chocolate and butter into a large metal bowl. Bring a pot of water to boil, and place the metal bowl over the top. Simmer until all contents are melted. Stir in the sugar substitute and let mixture cool.

Whisk your egg whites with the salt until the soft peaks form, then set aside.

In a small bowl give the yolks a quick whisk then add the yolks to the chocolate mixture, whisking as you go. Add the hazelnuts. Stir in one third of the egg whites. Fold in the next half of the egg whites. Then fold in the second half.

Grease a baking tin well, and bake for around 30 - 35 minutes until the center is firm and springy. Let the cake cool in the pan before removing.


Melt your chocolate and butter the same way as before.

Add water.

Coat your cake in the stuff.

To achieve a smooth coating, layer the cake thinly first, then put it in the fridge until it hardens a little, then add a second more thick layer.

  • Ingredients:

  • Pie Shell:

Melt butter in a medium microwavable bowl. Add almond flour, eggs, Splenda and salt. Mix well. Stir in sifted coconut flour.

Knead dough with hands for about one minute, then shape dough into a ball.

Roll out between wax paper to about 1/8 inch think and turn dough into 9 inch pie pan.

Prick bottom and sides of crust with fork. Bake crust at 200°C / 400°F for 10 minutes. Set aside.

Combine coconut milk, heavy cream, xanthan gum, guar gum and Splenda in a food processor. Add egg yolks and lime juice.

Process all ingredients until well blended.

Spread filling into pie crust and bake at 180°C / 350°F for 10 minutes.

Allow to stand for 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving, top with whipped cream.


[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 Tablespoons of Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 1/3 of a cup of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 of a cup of Almond Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of a sugar equivalent
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or flavouring of your choice)
  • 1.5 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder
  • A dash of xanthum gum

Whip egg whites together until fluffy.

Mix everything else in larger bowl. Add beaten egg whites.

Put on your waffle iron device but do NOT over brown.

Check before the auto light says they're done because pale is better (softer and less dry).

Spread with butter and microwave for 10 seconds if needed to soften.

Taco Salad

Delicious Taco Salad
[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 500 grams of beef mince
  • Salsa
  • A handful of green beans
  • Handful of spinach
  • Half a capsicum
  • Jalapenos to taste
  • Grated cheese for garnish
  • Taco Seasoning (I usually just buy a premade packet fromt he supermarket, but you can make your own with the list below)
  • Optional:
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl. Remember, if you don't like it spicy you can always use less paprika and chilli powder and use more onion / garlic powder.

Brown the mince, then add taco seasoning. (Sometimes adding a small amount of water will be necessary, but usually the fat from the mince will be moist enough)

Steam the beans and capsicum, and then combine everything in the pan you cooked the mince in.

Mix well, then serve in a bowl.

You can pretty much swap in whatever veggies you have lying around. I use broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, and carrot depending on what i've got in the fridge.

Be mindful of putting beans in, however, as the small beans tend to be full of carbs (kidney beans for example). If in doubt, google it!

This is my favourite lunch recipe. Super quick to cook, and takes 2 minutes to heat up in the microwave the next day.

Cauliflower Pizza Base

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • Non-stick spray
  • 2 ½ cups grated cauliflower (about ½ a large head)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, for garnish
  • Other pizza toppings, such as bacon, pepperoni, jalapenos etc. You can pretty much go nuts at this point.

Heat oven to 220°C / 425°F. Line a rimmed pizza / baking tray with baking paper.

Remember to spray the crap out of your baking paper with non-stick spray. (You will regret forgetting this step!)

Grate the cauliflower using a box grater. Place in a large bowl and microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until soft.

Remove and let cool (This is important - actually let it cool!).

Mix in the egg, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and salt & pepper.

Once combined, pat into a 10-inch circle on the prepared pizza pan. Spray lightly with non-stick spray and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.

Top the pizza with the sauce, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, garlic, and red pepper flakes and other stuff.

Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, another 10 minutes.

Top with basil before serving.

(note: This pizza base doesn't really go hard, it tends to fall apart in your hands. It is undeniably delicious, though, so man up and eat it. Another thought: Cauliflower smells like death when microwaved. Soldier through that step and once it's baked it smells and tastes fine.

Chicken Mince Pizza Base

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 1 packed cup cooked, minced chicken breast
  • 1 cup packed mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Other pizza toppings, such as bacon, pepperoni, jalapenos etc.

Preheat oven to 220°C / 425°F.

Process chicken and cheese together. (Mixture will resemble a meal/thick, dense crumb consistency.)

Press chicken/cheese mixture on parchment paper on pizza tray lined with baking paper.

Spray the crap out of it with non-stick spray.

Top with parsley, basil, onion and garlic powder. Bake for 12 minutes.

Let cool for five minutes. Top with sauce, cheese, and then toppings. (I recommend: MORE CHICKEN!)

Bake for 6-8 minutes more, or until toppings are melted. Let cool for five minutes. Slice and serve.

Cheese Bread

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons Splenda
  • 1/4 Cup of Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon of melted butter

Melt butter in a large bowl. Add & mix egg, flax meal, baking powder & splenda.

Add cheddar cheese and mix.

Put in microwave 1 minute, flip bread over and microwave another 10 seconds if not done in middle.

Makes one slice of bread.

Cut in half, top half with desired sandwich filling.

Suggestions: mayo or cream cheese, turkey, lettuce, tomato, etc. Then top with other half of bread. Serves one.

Ideal for hamburgers and the like! Will even serve as a pizza base if you add larger quantities of ingredients.

Lasagne Stuffed Peppers (Capsicums)

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • As many peppers as you have people to feed. 1 pepper seems to fill me up pretty well. Of course, your mileage may vary.
  • 2 1/2 cups of Spaghetti sauce. (Supermarket brand is fine, or you could cook up your own!)
  • 1 Cup Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozarrella Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup of Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Mixed Herbs (Basil, Rosemary and Thyme work well.)

Preheat oven to 200°C / 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Slice peppers in half lengthwise and remove ribs and seeds. Place pepper halves on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes on the middle rack.

Remove peppers from oven. Fill each pepper with ¼ cup spaghetti sauce.

Next, spoon 2 Tablespoons of ricotta cheese on top of the sauce in each pepper cup. Pour an additional 1 Tablespoons spaghetti sauce on top of the ricotta cheese.

Top each pepper with 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese. Bake on middle rack for 12 minutes.

Remove peppers from oven. Top each pepper with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of herbs. Bake 5 additional minutes on top rack.


[back to the top]
  • You can use your imagination for fillings. I've used chicken breast, bacon, jalapenos, capsicum, spinach and cheese before, which was amazing.

  • Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour
  • 2 tablespoons of Psyllium Husk Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup of softened butter OR coconut oil
  • 1 cup of boiling water OR veggie broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mexican spices

In a medium sized bowl, stir together the coconut flour, psyllium husks, salt and spices.

Add the butter or coconut oil. Stir continuously as you add the hot broth or water, it will melt the butter or oil.

Combine until very smooth.

Heat a large pan to medium-high heat with coconut oil.

Once hot, place an unbaked tortilla on the pan and saute until light brown, then flip and bake through.


Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the coconut flour, psyllium husks, salt and spices.

Add the butter or coconut oil. Stir continuously as you add the hot broth or water, it will melt the butter or oil.

Combine until very smooth.

Place the dough onto a piece of greased parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out in a circle shape with even thickness throughout.

Place the bottom parchment with the unbaked wraps onto a piece of baking paper. Bake at 180°C / 350ºF for 20 minutes or until done throughout (this will depend on how thick you rolled the dough).

Makes 6 wraps.

NOTE: Bake the dough right away and then freeze the baked product if you want. The dough doesn’t store well uncooked.

Stuffed Chilli Meatballs

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • A few large chillis. The more you get, the more you'll have to eat!
  • Cheese. Feta works, so does cheddar. Personal preference!
  • 1 kg Beef Mince
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 egg
  • Spices of your preference
  • BBQ sauce (peri-peri sauce also works very well)

Note: This one does not have to be spicy. By removing the chilli seeds you are removing almost all of the kick from the chillis. If you'd prefer the kick to stay, leave the seeds in.

Mince Meat

Add mince, almond flour and egg to a bowl. Mix well.

Add spices. At this point you can pretty much add whatever you like.


Slice the tops off the chillis. Remove the seeds and membranes from inside.

Fill chillis with cheese of choice.

Flatten out your mince into several small circles.

Wrap the circles of mince around the stuffed chillis.

Stick the meatballs on the grill, or in your oven at a low (150°C / 300°F) temperature. Ensure the surface is greased.

About halfway through the cooking process, brush the balls with your sauce of choice.

The balls will take around 45 to 60 minutes to cook, depending on how thick you make them. Check them regularly and don't let them burn. You'll know they're done when your cheese is leaking out.

Top with salsa and serve on lettuce leaves for a delicious and healthy meal!

Pizza Rolls

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 tablespoon of Psyllium Husk Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter
  • Oregano to taste
  • 1/2 Cup of boiling water
  • Pizza Toppings of Your Choice. (Recommendations: Chicken breast (shredded), Bacon (Small pieces), Jalapenos, Capsicum and Tomato)
  • 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozarrella cheese

Add coconut flour, psyllium husk, salt and oregano to a bowl and mix well.

Add butter and boiling water and continue to mix until a soft dough is formed.

Roll out the dough (you'll know its mixed enough if it does not stick to your counter top) to tortilla thickness.

Spread your pizza sauce over the dough. Add toppings of choice. Sprinkle with cheeses.

Roll up your topped dough, then slice into small rolls.

Place sliced pizza rolls on greased baking tray and bake at 180°C / 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Peanut Butter Bread

[back to the top]
  • Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 packet of sugar substitute (optional)

Blend the peanut butter and eggs until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Spray a pan with non-stick spray and pour the mixture in. (Preferably a bread tin but really, cake shaped bread will still be bread!)

Bake at 180°C / 350°F for 30 - 40 minutes, or until cooked through. Make sure you let it cool before you try to slice it.

Note: This bread doesn't rise as high as your normal breads, and as such you'll end up with smaller slices. Usually 4 pieces of this bread will equal 2 pieces of normal bread.
