missing bread, not with these keto biscuits slathered in butter

“I. Love. Bread.” – Oprah

I’m going to take a guess that if you’ve switched from cravings carbs to eating keto, you might be missing that oh so comforting bread food group. Luckily, your life doesn’t have to be completely breadless! Here are some products and recipes to bring bread products back into your life, without the heavy carb hit.


1. Fathead bagels

Keto Bagel With Cream Cheese

You read that right — bagels! And they’re actually keto! This super simple recipe can get you back on the bagel train with minimal effort, and at only 5g net carbs per bagel, no less! Even better, this dough recipe is so versatile.

Instead of forming the dough into rings for bagels, you can drop mounds of dough and slightly flatten onto a baking sheet to bake up keto rolls. Or, ball the dough up for pull-apart pizza bread. Yum!


2. Low-carb tortillas

It’s a whole new take on Taco Tuesday. We recently tried our hand at keto chimichangas using Mama Lupe’s low-carb tortillas, and boy are they delicious! At only 3g net carbs, you’ll be able to raise your hand for a second helping. Another great low-carb tortilla option can be found at Trader Joe’s. They’re slightly higher in carbs, but they can be used just as seamlessly in place of regular tortillas.

For an even more low carb version of tortillas, check out these recipes for enchiladas, taquitos, and tacos that create a shell out of one ingredient — cheese!


3. Fathead pizza dough

Mmm… pizza! And you know pizza is only as good as it’s crunchy, chewy crust! Craft your own keto pizza pie with this Fathead pizza crust recipe for a 2g net carb slice. Similar to the bagel dough recipe, the options for this Fathead dough don’t stop at just pizza. Give these yummy taco breadsticks a try to serve alongside your favorite dipping sauces.


4. Low-carb bread loaves

SOLA keto bread

It looks like bread, it tastes like bread, and you don’t have even mix up the dough yourself! Sola Bread is the answer to your “Can’t I just get a slice of bread!?” woes. At only 4g or less net carbs, and with a whopping 6g of protein to boot, you can build the keto sandwich of your dreams without the guilt. Plus, it comes in a variety of options like White Wheat, Sweet Oat, and Deliciously Seeded.

Other bread loaf options include SoLo Carb bread with 3g net carbs per slice or ThinSlim Food Zero Carb bread with a zero net carb count! These loaves of bread can be a bit pricey to buy online or come in large qualities, so toss the loaves in the freezer to keep them fresh until you’re ready to dive in.


5. Pork rinds (for breading)

Making a meal that delivers a crunch factor is a rare treat on keto. That said, you can crunchitize chicken tenders with a gas station snack — pork rinds! We happen to love the offerings from 4505 Meats. Both of their Chicharrones and cracklins come in a variety of flavors so you can customize the breading options to your taste. Oh, and did we mention they’re 0 carbs?!

If pork rinds just aren’t your jam, try other crunchy breading options like crushed up Cello Whisps or almond flour on these chicken nuggets!


6. Cheesy biscuits

You could even use them to make breakfast sandwiches with eggs and bacon, or just slather on some Kerrygold butter for a savory fat-fueled treat.


7. Keto zucchini bread

    The cheesy biscuits are excellent when you add Bragg’s seasoning! 🙂

    Zuchinni bread is awesome – without the icing! 🙂

    Trader’s Joe’s seasoning – Everything but the bagel – We found it very salty. Awesome salt -free alternative = Spice Hunter – Everything Bagel Crunch. I found it at Sprouts Farmer’s Market – gotta LOVE that grocery store!

    Can you mix up the dough and then freeze it for future use?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That should work!
