You’d be hard pushed to find a website easier than Pinterest to navigate. For saving, sharing, and discovering popular recipes that have been tried and tested by crowds of other people, it’s a resource that you can utilize to make your very own online recipe scrapbook.
It’s also a handy resource for specialist diets such as the keto diet, but we thought we’d make it even easier by compiling 22 of the best and most popular keto diet breakfast, dinner, and dessert recipes on Pinterest.
1. Zucchini Lasagna
Traditional lasagna is universally known as being a rich and indulgent carb-fest and although the pasta sheets have been replaced with zucchini slices in this recipe to comply with the low carb condition of a keto diet plan, it’s still delicious and rich with the flavor and fat residing in the cheesy sauce.
If you fancied something with a little more body, we would recommend replacing the zucchini with eggplant as it is low carb but has a meatier and firmer texture.
2. Taco Cups
These fun and flavor-packed taco cups are the perfect snack and are great for making with kids.
They come together with just a few ingredients and the cups that hold the taco seasoned mince are made with butter, cream cheese, coconut flour, baking powder, and eggs.
For even more flavor, we love the idea of topping these with freshly chopped jalapeno peppers or a spoonful of tangy pico de gallo made with tomatoes, serrano peppers, cilantro, and lime juice. How great does that sound!?
3. Keto Breakfast Bake
The most important meal of the day deserves an injection of creativity and this bake made up of cream, cheese, eggs, butter, and ham is one of the most simple and easy Pinterest keto meals out there.
You could add your own creative flair here by switching the ham for another protein (just make sure that it has a high-fat content) and adding in keto-friendly vegetables such as spinach, kale, bell peppers, or asparagus for extra nutrition and vitamins.
4. Loaded zucchini skins
If you’re a cheese-lover (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) then you’ll love these finger-friendly zucchini boats loaded with gooey cheddar cheese and full-fat cream cheese.
The chili powder and ground cumin add extra warmth and flavor, but these could be replaced with any herbs and seasonings you enjoy.
Our preference would be smoked paprika, dried oregano, and garlic powder. It’s simple and a great recipe for keto diet beginners or for an afternoon snack when you’re squeezed for time.
5. Lasagna Skillet
This lasagna hits the keto brief like no other because it completely omits the noodles or replacements for the noodles and so is one of the easiest Pinterest ketogenic meals as it also happens to be a one-pot dish.
With two sources of protein, ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella, and parmesan cheese, this one isn’t for the lighthearted as it’s incredibly rich, cheesy, gooey, and moreish.
We don’t know about you, but those words all in one sentence are music to our ears after a busy day when our stomachs are rumbling.
6. BBQ Chicken Casserole
This recipe is a frequently highly rated and reviewed Pinterest keto dinner recipe and is a celebration of all the flavors we love from a barbeque cook-up, without the effort or kit required for the real thing.
The recipe calls for chicken breasts to be smothered in BBQ sauce, Monterey Jack cheese, and bacon, however, we would recommend using chicken thighs for extra flavor and higher fat content.
You could also sub out the Monterey Jack for any cheese of your choice, but we find pepper jack and mozzarella cheese are great alternatives.
7. Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken
Keto diet recipes are often rich and indulgent, so if you’re fancying something a little fresher on the palate and lighter on the stomach, the cilantro and lime lend acidity and sweetness to cut through the rich cream-based sauce.
We know that cilantro isn’t a flavor that’s to everyone’s taste and so if you’re a cilantro-avoider and describe it as tasting of soap or metal, the cilantro and lime could easily and very tastily be replaced with freshly chopped parsley and lemon.
8. Chicken Alfredo Casserole
The addition of cauliflower in this recipe bulks this meal out, making it a family-friendly keto dinner recipe.
The recipe does require a few additional steps, such as drying the cauliflower out by steaming it before it is added to the casserole to avoid it from releasing too much water.
The alfredo sauce is flavor-packed but if you enjoy the flavor of blue cheese, we recommend adding in a few crumbled chunks over the casserole before cooking to allow it to melt and char a little.
9. Ground Beef & Broccoli Casserole
This is almost a cross between a cheeseburger and lasagna – are you salivating yet? This ridiculously simple recipe is a crowd-pleaser and just so happens to be a one-pot meal, too.
If you are trying to cut back on your consumption of red meat, you could replace the beef with ground turkey mince.
Regardless of which protein you decide to use, this is a fail-safe weeknight dinner that is sure to become a regular on your keto diet plan menu.
10. Keto Chili
The omission of the beans makes this a less traditional but still delicious and keto-friendly chili.
As an alternative to the traditional rice accompaniment of chili, you could serve this up with cauliflower rice which as well as being keto compliant, allows you to add in more nutrients and helps to fill the meal out and make it go further if you’re serving a group.
The recipe is loaded with ground beef, Italian sausage, and bacon which makes for an extremely rich meal and so to cut through the richness, we would recommend topping this with sour cream!
11. Philly Cheesesteak Skillet
Who’d have thought that you could eat a Philly cheesesteak on a fat-loss-focused diet? Not us! The hoagie roll may be missing, but with beef, provolone, and gruyere cheese, peppers, onions, and steak seasoning, the flavor certainly isn’t missing.
We would recommend opting for beef mince with a fat content of around 85% to ensure you get that flavor but without any additional unnecessary grease.
This Pinterest ketogenic recipe is a slight variation on the classic but is sure to be a hit with anyone you serve it to.
12. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Biscuits
With most of us opting for carbohydrate-laden options for breakfast such as oats or toast, coming up with keto-friendly breakfast recipes can be challenging and so this Pinterest keto breakfast idea is a very welcome suggestion.
The recipe is easy, simple and once you’ve baked the biscuits for around 15 minutes, you can store them in the freezer to use throughout the week or month to make your breakfasts less stressful and time-consuming on the days where you’re short on time.
13. Sausage and Biscuits
This recipe is very similar to the aforementioned ham and cheese breakfast biscuits and so if you’ve made those already, you can use them to form these biscuit sandwiches by slicing them in half and filling the two halves with sausage patties which you can easily make by dividing sausage meat into balls and then flattening between your palms.
For extra flavor, we suggest adding chopped chives into the biscuit mixture before cooking. You could also add a fried egg to the sandwich for extra protein.
14. Lemon Sour Cream Pie
At 14 Pinterest keto recipe suggestions into this article, we thought it was about time we made you aware of this delicious dessert that will leave your tastebuds tingling, in spite of being sugar-free.
The sweetness comes from powdered sweetener; however, the richness and indulgence of a good dessert aren’t missing with the cream filling being made up of heavy cream, egg yolks, and butter. If you’re a key-lime pie lover, switch the lemon out for lime juice and zest!
15. White Keto Bread Recipe
A bread recipe in a keto recipe compilation post seems a little counter-productive but with this bread being made from coconut and almond flour, baking powder, butter, and egg whites, it is completely keto-compliant.
It clocks in at just 1 net carb per slice and so it’s a simple and convenient way of continuing to enjoy white bread while sticking with your keto diet plan.
It can also be frozen but personally, we don’t think it’ll last long enough for that to be necessary!
16. 90 Second Bread
And because one keto bread recipe isn’t enough, here’s another! The bread linked above takes around an hour and ten minutes to cook and so if you’re short on time (or just impatient like us), this is a ridiculously quick and convenient way of making a fluffy portion of bread.
If that wasn’t simple enough, it’s made from just four ingredients: almond flour, 1 egg, baking powder, and melted butter.
Again, this can also be stored in the freezer if you were to multiply the quantities of the ingredients and make several portions.
17. Broccoli Cheddar Soup
Potatoes would normally thicken a soup such as this one however, this Pinterest keto recipe utilizes heavy whipping cream and cream cheese to thicken this cheesy soup.
The consistency is more like a broth than a thick soup however it is delicious and is surprisingly filling thanks to the rich ingredients such as bacon, cream, and butter.
If you wanted to make it more filling, however, we suggest serving it with the 90-second bread linked above on the side!
18. Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Restrictive diets can often lead to us missing out on home comforts and the dishes we were raised on, but this chicken pot pie soup gives us the homely feeling we crave, without the carbs.
This soup is a little lighter than the others mentioned throughout this article as the creamy sauce is made with pureed cauliflower, which is the secret ingredient!
If you wanted to amp up the fat content, you could add in parmesan cheese and a touch of cream to bind the soup together.
19. Instant Pot Cheesesteaks
This Pinterest keto dinner recipe transforms the humble Philly cheesesteak into a homely stew and is a great one for chillier days or busy days where leaving the stew to cook for a few hours while you’re busy at work or running errands is appealing!
Loaded with garlic powder, onions, broth, ghee, and parsley, this is a flavor explosion and is sure to become a family favorite at any time of the year.
We don’t know about you, but when we think of stew, we immediately envision (and crave) creamy mashed potatoes. As potatoes aren’t keto compliant, we recommend making creamy cauliflower mash instead!
20. Chocolate Cookies
Cookies aren’t something we immediately think of when we hear the word keto and chocolate cookies? Even less so!
The prospect of being able to enjoy chocolate cookies while following a keto diet plan sounds great to us and so this recipe which utilizes sugar-free chocolate chips, powdered sweetener, and almond flour in place of regular plain flour to achieve that sweet, crumbly cookie texture is one that is sure to become a regular in anyone’s keto diet plan!
21. Air Fryer Fried Chicken
Any recipe that encourages us to make the most out of our air fryer is one that we’re up for trying and so this grain-free breaded chicken recipe is the perfect weekend treat.
The secret ingredient here that provides that crispy, crunchy exterior is…pork rinds. You heard that right.
It sounds strange but with high salt and fat content, the ground pork rinds offer that crispy exterior that we all love about fried chicken, without having to rely on carb-heavy grains.
22. Instant Pot Lasagna
Traditional lasagna noodles are missing from this and are not replaced with any keto-friendly vegetable slices and with being cooked low and slow, it’s the easiest way to get the flavor of a lasagna…what’s not to love?
In every other way, this lasagna is just as creamy, indulgent, comforting, and gooey as the traditional lasagna we all know and love.
Even better, you can leave it cooking in the instant pot and have a delicious dinner without the effort of layering a traditional lasagna.
