Fry Up Some Delicious Keto Hush Puppies (Just 2g Net Carbs)
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!
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.”
