Low Carb and Keto baking: the basics explained 

Keto baking can be key for you to be able to stick with your healthy, low-carb lifestyle. It liberates you from feeling deprived, because you can keep enjoying all your favourite sweet and savoury pastry.  

To keep your keto bakes aligned with the keto lifestyle, you need to make sure they’re very low in carbs. Typically, you need to swap 3 main ingredients to be able to do this: 

  • sugar 
  • wheat flour 
  • yeast
     

All three are too high in carbs for a low-carb or keto diet. But hey, you’ve got great alternatives to turn to! 

You can start with these alternatives for wheat flour. One of the best aspects of low-carb, keto baking is that you use only types of flour that are naturally GLUTEN FREE and VEGAN.  

  • (Bio) Almond flour  
  • (Bio) Coconut flour
     

The best carb-free keto alternatives for sugar are: 

  • Erythritol-based sweeteners 
  • Stevia-based sweeteners
     

And instead of yeast, you can use:

  • Baking powder 
  • Eggs
     

There are some more ingredients that you’ll need for successful keto baking. We’ll discuss them all below, these alternatives for wheat and sugar.
 

The best ingredients for successful keto baking 

Once you know which ingredients you need, it’s just a matter of collecting and stocking them. This way you’ll always have the right stuff at home for those moments you want to start baking some lovely keto foods. From gluten-free and vegan to low-sugar: it’s all possible! Check out this list of basic ingredients and add your favourites to your shopping list!

Almond flour

Probably the most popular and common keto flour. It has a finer milling that almond meal and it’s great for crusts, pancakes and cookies.
 

Coconut flour

Coconut flour is 100% dried and ground coconut meat. As it is quite dense, you’ll only need about ⅓ for every cup of wheat flour. You can make nice and fudgy brownies, cakes, pies and cheesecake with it.
 

Keto-friendly sweetener

Keto-friendly sweeteners contain no carbs and calories but have a great sweet taste, which makes them the perfect sugar substitute. Some examples of great keto sweeteners are stevia and (bio) erythritol.
 

Ghee

Ghee is an organic, dairy-free and lactose-free alternative for butter or oil. It’s a very purified form of clarified butter and is a versatile natural fat that can be used for cooking and baking. By using ghee keto bakes will get a much nuttier flavour.
 

Chia seeds

You can ground chia seeds at home or buy ground chia seeds. They provide a ton of nutrients and can be mixed into baked goods like muffins and bread. Do you want to bake something vegan? 1 teaspoon of chia seeds and 2,5 teaspoon of water can serve as an egg substitute!
 

Flax seed

Flax seed is great to use as a ground meal in keto batters and doughs. As flax seed flour is a bit oily, you might want to use al little less oil or butter in the recipe than you normally would.
 

Psyllium husk

If you’re new to keto and low-carb baking, this typical keto ingredient may also be new to you. Psyllium husk is a natural, plant-based fibre that’s often used medically to aid digestion. For low-carb, keto and gluten free baking, psyllium husk powder is great to replace gluten, which are only found in wheat and some related grains. Gluten give dough coherence and elasticity, so you need to replace them. Psyllium can do this. By adding a little of it to your doughs and batters, you prevent your bakes from crumbling to dust in the oven.
 

SUMMARY 
The most important keto baking goods are almond flour or coconut flour, keto-friendly sweeteners like erythritol and stevia, to replace high carb wheat flour and sugar in your baking recipes.

What’s the best keto sweetener?

If you’re on a keto diet, you want to reach the metabolic state of ketosis. To get there or to stay there, it’s important to avoid carbs as much as possible and eliminate your sugar consumption. Luckily there are great tasting carb free sweeteners that you can use instead: here are your best picks! There are also some you’d rather want to avoid, see the list below.
 

  1. Erythritol sweetener

Erythritol is a naturally occurring type of sugar alcohol that stimulates your sweet taste receptors. Although it has 80% of the sweetness of table sugar, it contains none of the calories and none of the carbs. It’s great both for baking and for cooking. 

  1. Stevia

Stevia is a natural sweetener and it contains little to no calories or carbs. It’s available in liquid or powdered form and it’s much sweetener than regular sugar. 

List of sweeteners you want to avoid (they’re just sugar in disguise)

  • Coconut sugar 
  • Maple syrup 
  • Honey 
  • Maltodextrin 
  • Dates

     

4 keto baking secrets revealed

Whether you are a seasoned baker or never picked up an item from the baking aisle before, you’ll probably like some of the keto baking secrets we share with you in this section. Keto baking can be a bit trickier, as it’s for instance more challenging to achieve a chewy or crispy texture. With some creativity, experience and the right tips, you’ll get there!  

Keep these baking secrets for yourself (or share them with the rest of the world): 

Secret #1
Especially in the beginning of your baking adventure, stick to keto recipes, instead of converting high carb recipes, so you have much more chance to succeed. 

Secret #2
Choose the right keto flour substitute. Almond flour is the easiest to work with and can replace wheat in a 1:1 ratio. However, remember that it behaves a bit differently as it has no gluten. Keto bakes with almond flour will be denser and flatter. 

Secret #3
Invest in a good kitchen scale. This way you make sure you are measuring ingredients correctly. It can be the difference between success or failure. 

Secret #4
Experiment freely with different flavours and textures, to develop your own taste. Use for instance nut butter, seeds and spices to create your own tasty combinations.
 

SUMMARY 
The best keto sweeteners are low in carbs and calories and have a great sweet taste, like stevia or erythritol. If you start baking, make sure you stick to the recipes, measure well, use the right flour and experiment to develop your taste.
