4 Keto Recipes to Get You Through the Week

Sticking with a keto diet can be challenging when you don’t know what to cook. Use these keto recipes to make things easier.

If you’re on the keto diet right now, chances are good you’re on the hunt for a few recipes to get you by. While you could just figure out a handful of recipes and eat the same thing every day to keep it easy, that’s not going to lead to you feeling very satisfied with your diet plan.

In order to stick with your keto diet, you want to include sufficient variety to both keep your taste buds satisfied as well as ensure that you are getting in a wide variety of nutrition as well.

The following keto recipes will help you do just that. They’re great for those short-on-time days when you don’t have hours to prepare. Get creative in the kitchen. It will pay off.

Chocolate Coconut Bark

This is a fantastic way to offset those chocolate cravings when they strike. It’s a cold dessert too so it's a nice option when ice cream simply won’t fit the bill. With so much sugar, there’s no denying the fact that will definitely not make it into a keto diet plan.

  • ¼ cup whey protein powder
  • 3 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. dried unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix all the ingredients together and then pour into a pan lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for about an hour or until firm. Serve immediately.

Crispy Chicken

This crispy chicken recipe is a nice twist on the classic and is full of healthy fats. Rather than using high carb ingredients to coat the chicken, you’ll use a mixture of almond flour and dried coconut. Then simply fry in some olive oil to bring the healthy fat content up even further and you’re all set.

  • 6 oz. chicken breast, cut into strips
  • ¼ cup ground almonds (almond flour)
  • ¼ cup dried unsweetened coconut flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 whole egg
  • ¼ cup olive oil for frying.

Mix together the almonds, coconut flakes, salt, and pepper. Whisk the egg and then dip chicken in the egg. Then dip in almond flour mixture. Heat olive oil in a skillet and then pan fry for a few minutes on both sides until cooked through.

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a dish that many people completely forget about but one that is not only delicious as a snack but also works great as an appetizer. Normal deviled eggs are made with a high dose of mayonnaise, which is less than healthy and also contains some carbs. Instead, try avocado instead. It’s a far superior option to keep your keto diet in check and will provide an excellent dose of vitamin E as well.

  • 5 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Hard boil the eggs. Peel and then scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Mix the yolks with mashed avocado, spices, and parsley. Put back into the hard-boiled egg white shells and then sprinkle a little more parsley and paprika over top before serving.

Creamy Lemon Popsicles

Craving ice cream but don’t want the carbs? Or perhaps you just want a refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day. Whatever the case may be, this recipe will definitely deliver. It’s full of healthy fats and will also ensure you have the energy to keep up with your daily activities.

  • 2 cups of full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup mashed avocado
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 tbsp. stevia powder (more if desired)
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract

Blend together all the ingredients until smooth. Transfer into popsicle molds and then place in the freezer for about 4 hours. Remove and serve.

So don’t let boredom get you down any longer on your keto diet plan. Try these and prepare to be wowed by how great eating keto can taste.
