Keto Stuffing Recipe – Keto Mamas – Good for you!

Keto Stuffing

Everyone loves a good stuffing and you can still enjoy it on the keto diet. This keto stuffing (made with almond flour and coconut flour) is delicious and holds together like traditional stuffing.  Looking for Thanksgiving dishes that are grain free, gluten free, low carb, and keto?  Keto stuffing is the perfect answer!

Keto Stuffing Recipe

  • Servings: serves 6
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

Set oven to 350 degrees

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature - divided ¼ cup and ¼ cup )
  • 4 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 and ¼ cups almond flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1 Tbs parsley seasoning
  • 1 tsp rosemary seasoning
  • 1 tsp sage seasoning
  • 1 tsp thyme seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sausage crumbles (optional)
  • 8 ounces chicken or turkey bone broth
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion

Directions

  1. Whip cream cheese and ¼ cup butter with a mixer. Add eggs and mix them in too.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, the coconut flour, the parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme and baking powder.
  3. Add dry mix to the wet mix and incorporate.
  4. Spread the mix into a greased bread pan and smooth the top.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and loosed the sides of the bread from the pan with a knife.
  7. Carefully flip the bread out of the pan and cut it into crouton-sized cubes.
  8. Spread the bread cubes out on a cookie sheet and bake again until desired toastiness, 10 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I toast longer because I don’t like my stuffing going to mush.
  9. Meanwhile, saute the celery and onions in ¼ cup butter until soft. You can add more stuffing seansoning if desired. Add sausage crumbles if desired. Add 8 ounces of broth and salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Add toasted croutons and mix with broth, onions and celery. Then cover with a lid, remove from heat and allow to steam until desired consistency is achieved.
  11. Serve with your other Thanksgiving favorites, like keto cauliflower mashed “potatoes”, keto gravy, keto rolls, keto pumpkin cream pie and keto green bean casserole. And don’t forget the turkey!

keto german pancakes

Everyone loves good German Pancakes, and you can still enjoy them on the keto diet. Topped with berries and whipped cream, these keto German pancakes (made with almond flour) are easy to whip up for a special occasion breakfast, dessert or anytime!  Looking for breakfast ideas that are grain free, gluten free, low carb, and sugar free?  Keto German Pancakes are the perfect answer!

Keto German Pancakes Recipe

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Set oven to 425 degrees

Ingredients

German Pancake

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)

Berry Topping

  • 2 cups berries
  • 1/4 cup xylitol (or sweeten to taste with preferred sweetener)

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. When oven is heated, put butter in a 9x13 casserole dish and place in the oven to melt.
  3. Meanwhile, mix eggs, almond flour, almond milk, cream and salt in the blender.
  4. When butter is melted, sizzling but not burned, carefully put out the oven rack and pour the egg mixture into the casserole dish.
  5. Bake 15 minutes or until pancake is puffed up and lightly browned. It will flatten slightly after it comes out of the oven.
  6. While the pancake is baking, sweeten the berries with xylitol and mix together in a bowl. If using frozen berries, heat up berries to thaw them.
  7. Whip the heavy cream, xylitol and vanilla in a bowl with an electric hand mixer until desired consistency.
  8. Cut the puffed pancake into 6 or 8 squares and serve on individual plates topped with berry topping and whipped cream.

*Note: To save money, I buy xylitol in the bulk bins at Good Earth. I also buy frozen berries in large bags from Costco because it is more economical than buying fresh berries. Costco also sells large cartons of heavy cream which we go through quickly at our house.
