All you ever wanted to know about how to bake for the keto diet. Tips, tricks, best practices, and over 150+ delicious low carb recipes. This is my best cookbook yet!
Finally. Finally finally I get to officially announce my new cookbook, The Ultimate Guide to Keto Baking. I am over the moon here, people!
Now, chances are you’ve already seen me mention this new book, either here on the blog or on social media. And possibly you’ve even pre-ordered it already. Many thanks if you have!
But I’ve held off on the official announcement because I didn’t have a cover to show you. And nothing makes you want to purchase a cookbook like a gorgeous cover. Well this cover is Gorgeous with a capital G and I love it. And in case you’re wondering, the cover photo features my Keto Yellow Birthday Cake, replete with sugar-free sprinkles.
This, my friends, is the cookbook I’ve always wanted to write. I just didn’t know I wanted to write it until my publisher gave it the green light.
Think you have to give up baking on the keto diet?
Uh, that would be a firm NO. And this cookbook proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
If you’re like me, you love to bake. It’s your thing, it’s part of your identity, and nothing gives you greater pleasure. But, like me again, you may have thought that part of your life was over when you decided to go low carb or keto. I know that feeling, I was there too.
Stop me if you’ve heard this story but I actually sat on my kitchen floor and cried when I realized that a very low carb diet was my best hope for staying healthy and keeping diabetes at bay. I can remember it all so vividly, and I cried like a baby. Because I thought my favorite hobby was a thing of the past.
But you know how the story ends. Here I am, almost 10 years in, and I bake keto-style almost every day. Cookies, cakes, breads, muffins, crackers, you name it. I have thousands upon thousands of keto baking recipes and millions more ideas; more than I could possibly execute in a single life time.
This Keto Baking Book is Everything!
I thought this book would be a breeze to write, because I have 9+ years of experience under my belt and I have pioneered many of the keto baking methods that other bloggers and cookbook authors use today.
Therein lies the problem, however. It’s very hard to take all the knowledge that’s in my head and put it down on paper in a coherent fashion. This turned out to be a beast of a book and I wrestled with that beast for many months. I finally conquered said beast but I have to give a shout out to the amazing editorial staff over at Victory Belt for helping me clarify and clean up my ideas.
The Ultimate Guide to Keto Baking is much more than a cookbook. It truly is a guidebook, designed to give you the best information and tips on how to bake with keto ingredients. For the baking nerds among us (that would be me!), I even delved into the science behind sugar-free and grain-free baking.
By pouring all of my knowledge into this book, I hope to give you the confidence to strike out on your own. So that you can come up with your own keto baking creations. So that, like me, you can look at a high carb recipe and begin to understand what it might take to re-make it into something you can enjoy on the keto diet.
Not just another Keto Dessert Book
Okay fine, there are a lot of desserts in this book. A LOT! But baking isn’t just about the sweets, so rest assured that I included breads, muffins, crackers…even pizza!
It’s an incredibly wide range of keto baked goods that challenged my boundaries and I am immensely proud of the outcome. I took it upon myself to play with some new and different ingredients, such as lupin flour. I also tested out pretty much every keto sweetener on the market, simply so I could speak knowledgeably and guide you as to their best properties and uses.
I also included plenty of dairy-free recipes or dairy-free options for many of the recipes. I specifically had one dairy-free recipe tester try them out, so I could accommodate as many dietary needs as possible. I tried to develop a number of nut-free recipes too.
I love them all but let me tell you about a few that I’m really excited about:
- New York Crumb Cake
- Cream Cheese Cut Out Cookies
- Dairy Free Flan
- Sausage and Broccoli Calzone
- Tres Leches Cake
- French Canadian Tourtiere
- Rosemary Olive Oil Bread
- Dairy Free Peppermint Patty Brownies
- Cowboy Cookies
- Ricotta Cheesecake
- Maple Glazed Donuts
The Ultimate Guide to Keto Baking officially releases on December 3rd (just in time for the holidays!) but it’s available for pre-order now for less than $25. If you love baking and you want to enjoy it on the keto diet, this is the book for you!
