Five Keto Appetizers That Even Your Non-Keto Friends Will Love
If you’ve recently started following the keto diet, you’re probably finding it difficult to enjoy some of your favorite appetizers. Don’t worry, we’re going to discuss some of the most delicious keto appetizer recipes to help you incorporate more flavor into your diet.
On the other hand, some of you that have never heard of the keto diet are probably wondering what makes this diet so special.
The keto diet has become one of the most popular diets in the nutritional community. It requires you to get a majority of your calories from healthy fats while limiting the number of carbohydrates you consume. You can start to see why it can be difficult to find the best keto appetizers.
Without further ado, here are our top-five keto appetizers to try making at home. They’re perfect when cooking a dinner-for-one, dinner-for-two, or dinner for an entire group. Let’s get started!
1. Keto Rolls
If you miss enjoying dinner rolls with your meals, this will become one of your favorite new keto appetizers for dinner. You’ll need coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, Himalayan salt, water, eggs, and butter.
Grab two bowls. In the first one, mix all the dry ingredients together. In the other, mix the eggs, water, and melted butter. Combine the two bowls and continue mixing together. You should be left with a thick dough. Break the dough into smaller rolls and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.
2. Keto Blueberry Muffins
Muffins are a morning favorite, but most keto lovers won’t be able to add it to their diet regularly -- until now! These muffins make excellent keto appetizer recipes and only require almond flour, baking powder, butter, almond milk, eggs, blueberries, vanilla extract, and salt/pepper.
After melting the butter, combine all the ingredients except for the blueberries. Whisk together until mixed well before adding the blueberries. Use the batter to fill in a muffin pan and bake for around 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
3. Keto Buffalo Chicken Tenders
This is one of the best keto appetizers for Sunday football or any other sports get-together. All you need are chicken tenders, almond flour, eggs, heavy whipping cream, buffalo sauce, and salt/pepper to taste.
After seasoning the chicken with salt/pepper, dip them in an egg/whipping cream mixture and then cover in almond flour. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees and then toss them in buffalo sauce. Voila!
4. Cinnamon Keto Granola
Any keto lover will find it difficult to incorporate granola into their diet due to the high-carb oats they generally contain. Lucky for you, this list of keto appetizer recipes includes keto-friendly granola.
For this recipe, we’ll use almonds, pecans, coconut flakes, butter, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and Himalayan salt. After chopping the nuts, add them to a bowl with the coconut and browned butter. Mix in the salt, cinnamon, and vanilla before moving it to a baking sheet.
Bake for 60 minutes at 275 degrees and stir it up occasionally.
5. Parmesan Crisps
If you love cheese, this is going to be one of your favorite new keto appetizers. You only need three ingredients and it only takes about 20 minutes to make. First, you’ll need to grab grated Parmesan cheese, sliced provolone cheese, and jalapeno.
Place the grated cheese in little 1tbsp. piles on a baking sheet spread them an inch apart. After baking the sliced jalapeno for 5 minutes at 425 degrees, place one or two slices on top of the parmesan. Cover the pile with a small slice of provolone cheese and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
