Ingredients

Directions

1

In a mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and keto sweetener.

2

Add in egg and heavy cream to the flour mix. Do not overmix the batter, you want a cornbread texture.

4

Heat oil in a large saucepan or deep fryer. Let oil reach 325-350 degrees.

Scoop a large tablespoon into the hot oil. I usually put 4-6 in at a time. Fry for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Place hush puppies on a paper towel to drain any excess oil. Repeat the process until all hush puppies have been fried.

Serve and enjoy!

keto hushpuppies on plate

Missing hush puppies since you’ve gone keto?

Oh, how I love to snack on a handful of savory hush puppies, but since they’re traditionally made with cornmeal and are pretty carb-heavy, I’ve sadly had to give them up. Between my craving for them and having tried out a similar recipe from Natasha Newton, I wanted to sweeten things up with my take on a recipe for keto hush puppies to share with all of you!

These keto hush puppies are so yummy and make for a great low-carb side dish or appetizer.

Hip tips for making the best keto hush puppies:

    • Make sure your oil is HOT before dropping your hush puppies into fry. A candy thermometer really helps to gauge the temperature.
    • This is a basic keto hush puppy recipe, but you can add so much to these, such as shredded cheese or jalapeños if you like your food a little more spicy, or you could even throw in some green peppers.
    • A little trick that I like to do is to drizzle just a little bit of melted butter over these golden hush puppies right before serving. YUMMO!
    • With hush puppies being close to cornbread in flavor, I love adding a little sweetness to mine. If you’re not a fan of sweet hush puppies, you can omit the keto sweetener.

Get your snack on!

Packed with savory flavors on the inside and a perfect golden crunch on the outside, these hush puppies will be your new favorite keto-friendly snack. They taste just like cornbread but are even better because they are fried and oh so crispy! YUM!

I can’t wait to make these with some fried fish for dinner, my mouth is water just thinking about it.

My team member Jen gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:

“This recipe was super EASY, just mix up some ingredients and go! It’s fast and the taste is spot on. I love that it also has that corn bread-like texture, but without the carbs. I would say these are exactly like traditional hush puppies, but with a lighter texture. These went great with our fish, and I could totally eat them alone as a snack.”

    Can you make these desserts without the egg?

  2. Papoo

    Can I omit coconut flour and use all almond flour?

  3. Lisa

    Those look awesome!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hope you love them if you decide to give them a try!

  4. Ethan

    After mixing all the ingredients together, and it forms into a ball. Do I coat that in anything to form a crisp on the outside when I fry it? I was a bit confused from the steps because it never specified that.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nope! Frying them will create the crispiness. Be sure to put the batter in the fridge for 30 minutes before frying them. Hope this helps!

  5. Regina

    Can they be Air fried?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      These would be difficult to air fry as the batter may not stick together.

  6. Marjie

    what oil did you use? coconut oil?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We used beef tallow oil for frying but you can use any keto-friendly cooking oil that you prefer. Be sure to keep the oil under 350 degrees when frying to keep your kitchen from smoking up.

  7. Lela

    Curious if you could do these in an air fryer?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! You could try that, however the batter may not stay together.

  8. Judy Adom

    Mine fell apart in the oil.
    Please advise.
    Thanks.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Sorry to hear they fell apart. Were you able to put the batter in the fridge for 30 minutes?

  9. Judy Adom

    Yes I did.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, for next time maybe double check that that oil is hot and you could also mix just a bit more to be sure they stick together. Hoping that might be helpful!

      • Judy Adom

        Ok

  10. Lisa

    These are delicious, and so easy to make!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad you thought so! Thanks, Lisa!
