This keto Christmas garlic bread puts me straight into the Holiday mood. It’s perfect for your next Christmas dinner to add as a side to share with the whole family. This garlic bread reminded me of the taste of the breadsticks that you get at Olive Garden! Absolutely delicious!

One portion has a total of 1.5 g net carbs.

The ingredients for this keto Christmas garlic bread

I made this Christmas tree garlic bread with the fat dough I use to make keto lasagna noodles or keto pizza. And it works great for any kind of bread-like recipe.

Mozzarella cheese: The base of this ‘bread’ is made with shredded mozzarella cheese. I wouldn’t recommend substituting this cheese with any other cheese, since you need the firm consistency to hold everything together and create a dough.

Almond flour: I use almond flour in the process of making the lasagna noodles. I don’t recommend substituting this with any other nut flour. I’ve tried it with coconut flour before. It didn’t turn out well.

Baking powder: Some say baking powder is not keto-friendly because it’s high in carbs. But for me personally, I don’t mind using it in a small amount. As it does not affect the total amount of carbs that much. I do recommend using a gluten-free one. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but then you higher the chances of the tree, becoming flat.

  • In a large glass bowl, add the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Melt in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes.
  • When the mozzarella cheese is melted, add the egg and mix with a spatula.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 °C or 375 °F.
  • Add the almond flour and the baking powder to the mozzarella and egg mixture and start kneading with your hands until you have a firm dough. This could take a few minutes.
  • When you have a firm dough, lay out parchment paper on a baking tray.
  • Shape 17 balls out of the dough and lay them out next to each other. (see photo and video)
  • In a cup, mix the melted butter, salt, minced garlic and fresh chopped parsley.
  • Evenly spread out the garlic butter mix on top of the tree with a kitchen brush.
  • Bake the tree in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until it starts to turn golden brown.

This sugar-free Nutella paste recipe is one you’ll love if you miss Nutella on your healthy lifestyle. This sugar-free Nutella paste has 0g of net carbs per tablespoon, but tastes so yum! It’s a perfect spread to add some happiness to your pancakes, bagels, waffles, or keto bread.

If you take a closer look at the ingredient label of the original Nutella, the first ingredient is sugar. One portion of 15 grams has an astonishing 8.4 grams of sugar and 8.6 grams of carbs. This recipe, however, has zero net carbs and zero grams of sugar per portion.

The ingredients for this hazelnut paste

Roasted hazelnuts: The basis of this hazelnut paste is of course hazelnuts that I turn into a paste with a food processor. You can choose to use roasted hazelnuts from a bag as I did for convenience.
Or you can also roast hazelnuts yourself. In that case: Preheat the oven to 300° F or (150 °C). Place a baking sheet on a baking tray and assort the hazelnuts. Then place them in the oven. Let them bake for 10-15 minutes. Then take the hazelnuts out of the oven and place them on a kitchen towel. Close the kitchen towel and rub the skin of the hazelnuts. Some skin will still remain, that is not a problem.

Raw cacao powder: Raw cacao powder is unsweetened and in the purest form. This way, you can avoid any extra additives that are often found in most chocolate.

MCT oil: To give this hazelnut paste a nice smooth texture I added in MCT oil. Which is a Medium Chain Triglyceride oil usually made from coconuts. I prefer to use C8 MCT oil because it goes straight to the liver and pumps up ketone production, which gives this hazelnut paste some extra health benefits.

If you don’t have MCT oil, you can also use avocado oil.

Erythritol: I like to use erythritol as a sweetener for my keto recipes. You can also replace this sweetener with any other keto-friendly sweetener of your likings like monk fruit (only in the US) or stevia.

Salt: Celtic or Himalayan salt.

How to store this sugar-free Nutella paste

You can store the prepared paste in a glass jar for up to 2-3 months in a cool dry place.

These keto cream cheese waffles are so easy to prepare and they taste absolutely amazing! They’re great to have for breakfast or brunch and they are free of sugar. With only 0.5 grams of net carbs per waffle, you can still enjoy waffles on your ketogenic or low-carb lifestyle.

The ingredients to make these keto cream cheese waffles

Eggs: In this recipe, I used large pasture-raised eggs.

Cream cheese: Organic cream cheese.

Almond flour: To substitute regular grain flour, you can use almond flour, which is gluten-free and low in carbs. I wouldn’t use coconut flour, this makes the waffles very dry and it doesn’t give you a great texture.

Erythritol: To make these waffles nice and sweet, I used erythritol which is a keto-friendly sugar substitute with a glycemic index of zero. This means this sugar will not cause a spike in your blood sugar or knock you out of ketosis. Usually, erythritol can give you kind of a cold aftertaste, but because you don’t need too much in this recipe, the aftertaste is not present in these waffles.

Vanilla powder: Vanilla powder is purer than vanilla extract and I personally think it tastes better than vanilla extract. But you can also use vanilla extract. In that case, you’ll need 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract if you want to replace the vanilla powder.

Baking powder:

Which iron waffle can you use?

In this recipe, I use a mini waffle maker that makes the perfect size for these small waffles. You can also use a regular waffle maker. In that case, you just need to add more batter to your waffle iron. Just keep in mind the size also affects the macronutrients that I listed underneath the recipe.

How to store these waffles?

You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Or in the freezer for up to three months.

These keto meatballs in tomato sauce are one of my family’s regulars. It’s easy to prepare (even with kids), it tastes delicious and it’s full of nutrients. One portion has a total of 8 grams of net carbs.

I used to make tomato sauce with a bechamel sauce, made with flour, to prepare the tomato sauce. Ever since I went gluten-free and low carb, I needed to find a way to make a tomato sauce that was nice and thick but also tasted good of course.

You can use regular tomato sauce without added sugars to make it really really simple, but I’m a foodie, so for me, I like to add in some extra vegetables and spices.

For the ingredients

Ground beef: I like to use organic grass-fed, grass-finished ground beef because this meat is free of antibiotics and hormones and it’s higher in nutrients. But you can use any of your preferred ground meats such as pork, chicken, lamb, etc.

Coconut oil: I used coconut oil to sautee the onion, garlic, and bell pepper. You can use any of your preferred healthy cooking fats.

Chopped tomatoes: For the tomato sauce I used organic chopped tomatoes from a can. You can also use any other tomato sauce without added sugars. Make sure to check the ingredient list. It should only have tomatoes listed.

The spices: I like to use the basics like salt and pepper but also cumin, paprika powder, and dried oregano. These spices taste so good combined with ground meats and tomato sauces.

Tips for making the keto meatballs in tomato sauce

I used an air fryer to prepare the meatballs. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can just bake them in a pan with some coconut oil until they start to brown. To get them nicely baked on the inside, you can let them simmer in the tomato sauce for a few minutes before serving.

To blend the tomato sauce I used an immersion blender. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can also transfer the tomato sauce to a regular blender and then transfer it back into the pot.

Sometimes you just want something nice and sweet, that is keto-friendly but also doesn’t take you hours to prepare in the kitchen. Well, this recipe will set you up with just that. This keto-friendly chocolate mousse is super delicious and ready in no time!

One serving has only 2 grams of net carbs.

The ingredients for this keto chocolate mousse

Heavy cream: When choosing a heavy cream make sure it’s unsweetened, organic, and preferably from grass-fed, grass-finished cows. This way you avoid the added sugars, antibiotics, and GMO crops that are fed to these animals which in turn can harm your health.

Raw cacao powderRaw cacao powder is unsweetened and in the purest form. This way, you can avoid any extra additives that are often found in most chocolate.

Powdered erythritol: I like to use erythritol as a sweetener for my keto recipes. You can also replace this sweetener with any other keto-friendly sweetener of your likings like monk fruit or stevia. Make sure to use a powdered (or liquid stevia) form, this prevents the mousse to taste kind of ‘crunchy’.

The flavoring: To give the chocolate butter mousse some extra flavor, I added vanilla extract. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but I prefer to use it since it gives it a more delicious taste.

How do you store this dessert?

If you haven’t savoured the chocolate mouse right away, you can save it in the fridge for up to 4 days after preparing this dessert. Make sure to cover the chocolate mousse by putting it in a closed container. Or cover the glass you put the chocolate mousse in with some plastic food wrap.

These keto-friendly Christmas chocolates will put you straight into a Holiday mood without worrying about being knocked out of ketosis.

To make these super cute chocolates you’ll only need 2 or 3 ingredients, depending on how many layers you’d like to make these chocolates in. I used dark and white chocolate, but if you’re not a fan of white chocolate, you can also just use dark chocolate.

I made these chocolates for my little 4-year-old and she absolutely loved them, so these are definitely a kids pleaser. Holidays can be quite overwhelming with all the sugary candies. But it doesn’t have to be. By making your own Holiday candy you can still enjoy the holidays in a healthy way without feeling deprived.

You’ll need a mold for making these chocolates, which you can easily find on amazon.

For the ingredients

The chocolate: When choosing chocolate, I like to use pure, at least 70% cacao dark chocolate because the darker the cacao content, the higher anti-oxidants. Also, I want the first ingredient in the list to be chocolate and not a sweetener. My favorite keto chocolate to use is the one from Funky Fat Choc. I love this brand so much because it makes chocolate with clean ingredients that are healthy and taste delicious. (Get 10% off your order when you buy from them with code “EVY”) This brand is only available in Europe.

In this recipe, I used their dark chocolate with hazelnuts. It gives these chocolates a nice little crunch.

I also used this chocolate in my recipe for the keto peanut butter cups.

  • In a double boiler add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and break the dark chocolate in pieces into the pot. Bring to a melt. Add more coconut oil if you need the chocolate to be more liquid.
  • Transfer the melted chocolate into the mold with the help of a teaspoon. Don't fill them up completely, to leave some room for the white chocolate layer.

For the white layer

  • Take the mold with the dark chocolate out of the freezer and fill it up until the edge with the melted white chocolate.
  • Let the mold rest in the refrigerator for another few minutes until the chocolate is hardened out.
  • When the chocolate is hard, remove them from the mold. Place them onto a plate and store them in the fridge.


Store the prepared chocolates in the refrigerator, as they tend to melt at room temperature.
