9 of the best simple keto recipes that are easy to make and you might not even know are keto. When you are on a low carb diet it might be a challenge to find easy tasty recipes. Well on the Tortilla Channel we can help because we have a lot of recipes that are keto friendly and low carb. Want to know the 9 of the best simple keto recipes? Lets get started!

The keto or ketgenic diet is a low carb, high fat and moderate protein diet. The main reason is to get your body into ketosis which is a metabolic state.

In ketosis your liver will produce ketones and these ketones will be used as the main source of energy for your body. That way your body can burn fat instead of e.g. sugar.

When you are on the keto diet, carbs will be omitted from your diet and you will not be eating:

  • Bread,
  • Potatoes
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Grains

Which are all high in carbs. In the keto diet the majority of your daily caloric intake will be from fat. Your daily food intake will be according to the following ratio:

  • 70% from fats
  • 25% from protein
  • 5% from carbs

As you are restricting carbs in your diet you should try and stay below 20g of carbs per day from your food intake.

Now lets take a look at all of these delicious recipes that you can eat on a keto friendly or low carb diet without only eating fats.

1. Vegan peanut butter

The worlds easiest organic peanut butter jar. Made with oven roasted peanuts #thetortillachannel #easypeanutbutter #peanutbutter #veganpeanutbutter

This is not only the easiest peanut butter but a peanut butter without any additives. That is what makes this peanut butter so good. You can peel the peanuts from the shell or you buy peeled unsalted peanuts.

I found raw peanuts that should be roasted in the oven first and these work great and turn into a delicious peanut butter.

A lot of store bought peanut butter contain:

  • additional oil
  • salt
  • sugar

Let me tell that is absolutely unnecessary. Take a look at this recipe it is truly all you need and you can use it many of your favorite recipes.

2. Homemade Nutella

How to make homemade nutella recipe. Want to make this recipe visit thetortillachannel.com with video. #nuttynutella #hazelnutpaste #homemadenutella #nutella 

Just like with the peanut butter this homemade Nutella contains mostly nuts. To give it that typical Nutella flavor you need cacao, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.

The texture of this homemade Nutella is not a smooth as the real thing. I have found that by adding coconut oil and cashew will make you Nutella much smoother than when you use hazelnuts only.

Fortunately both ingredients are keto so no worries if you can add either of these ingredients.

    The homemade peanut butter sounds delicious! Keto is a strict low carb diet. So, low carb crackers and low carb chips are essential to being able to enjoy the delicious-looking salsas. There is a delicious low carb cracker recipe in the SIMPLE low carb magazine.
