KETO RECIPE: Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs have always been my favorite party food! I was making my BLT Deviled Eggs long before I was Keto.

This deviled egg recipe is a little different than the traditional filling. I add sour cream to my egg mixture and it is a game changer! It brings lightness and acidity and cuts through the mayonnaise.

At the bottom of this recipe, I’ve added a bunch of variations! Because Deviled Eggs are such a widely made dish, its really fun to develop your version of the classic recipe. Add your favorite Keto toppings like Jalapeños, Bacon, Basil. You can even add Avocado to the egg mixture.

Have fun creating your own Keto Deviled Egg recipe!


INGREDIENTS

  • 12 large eggs

  • 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1⁄4 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon

  • ground mustard

  • Pink salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Any other topping that you might like! Scroll down for variations!

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with 3 to 4 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil. Once you get a boil turn off the heat, cover the pot, and let sit for 15 minutes.

  2. Drain the eggs and fill the pan with ice-cold water (you can add ice cubes, too). Peel the eggs under cold running water. Put them on a paper towel−lined plate.

  3. Halve the eggs lengthwise. With a small spoon, carefully remove the yolks, transfer the yolks to a small bowl, and mash them.

  4. Mix in the mayonnaise, sour cream, and mustard, and season with pink salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.

  5. Spoon the yolk mixture back into the middle in the egg whites, or pipe it in with a cake-decorating bag if you want it to look pretty. Sprinkle with the paprika and serve.


My daughter frequently watches YouTube videos, usually DIY or baking videos, and she picks up some awesome tricks!

Instead of an expensive piping bag, grab a zip lock bag and any plastic cup. Put the bag in the cup, folding the edges of the bag over the sides of the cup. Spoon the mix into the zip-top bag, lift the bag out of the cup, cut off a small corner, and BOOM! You’ve created a simple piping bag.


VARIATIONS

Classic Deviled eggs are great, but I like to add a little crunch and spice to this recipe. You can add any Keto Toppings you want. Here are some of my suggestions:

BLT Deviled Eggs: These are my favorite. I have been making them for years. Top the egg mixture with crumbled bacon, chopped tomato, and chopped basil, which acts as the “L.” Everyone loves them, keto or not!

Bacon-Jalapeño Deviled Eggs: Top the basic egg mixture with crumbled bacon and diced jalapeños. Remove the jalapeño seeds to decrease the heat level.

Bacon-Avocado Deviled Eggs: Add 1⁄2 avocado and 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lime juice to the egg mixture. Then crumble 2 slices of crisply cooked bacon on top. I also like to switch out the paprika for Tajín, a delicious Mexican seasoning salt made with chiles and lime.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Perfect Keto Bars are HERE!!!

I can’t think of a better or more memorable taste than Chocolate Chip cookie dough. When I was little, I used to sneak a dough ball off of the baking sheet before the my grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies went into the oven.

Since then, I’ve eliminated sugar from my diet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still eat some dough before I put my Keto Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies in the oven.

That’s why I was stoked when I found out that Perfect Keto has launched a new flavor of Keto Bars: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Need a Keto Cookie- Check out Nui

Recognize these guys?

This is Kristoffer and Victor. They are the founders of Nui. And you may have seen them shaking A-Rod’s hand on Shark Tank Shark Tank recently!

149692_0997-w1500_grande.jpg

Nui is one of my favorite Keto Brands! They make KETO products not just products that you can kind of fit into your macros. That peace of mind is wonderful!

These Keto cookies are incredible. They are chewy and flavorful and just sweet enough. One sleeve (two cookies) has at the most 4g of Net Carbs.

Nui cookies come in several different flavors: Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip. Every so often they come out with a seasonal flavor, but you can get these four all year long.

Nui cookies are made with almond and coconut flour, so they are naturally gluten free. They are sweetened with monk fruit extract and erythritol.

Nui cookies are delicious! My favorite flavor is Snickerdoodle. These cinnamon Snickerdoodle cookies only have 2 g net carbs in the whole sleeve and have 6g of Protein, making them an amazing and flavorful way to fight off afternoon hunger.

The folks at Nui recently shared this amazing Churro Truffle Recipe. It takes the Snickerdoodle Cookies and turns them into melt in your mouth fat bombs. These are perfect to eat after a long day!

RECIPE:
“Churro” Truffles
.
Yields: 6
.
Ingredients:
Nui Snickerdoodle Cookies
1 tbsp Cream Cheese
½ tsp MCT oil
1 tbsp Walnuts
.
Directions:
1. Grind cookies, set 1 tbsp aside.
2. Blend cream cheese, walnuts and MCT oil for 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth.
3. Scoop mixture and roll in ground Snickerdoodle cookies.
4. Chill for 1 hour and then enjoy.

Perfect Keto Nut Butter now has Squeeze Packs!

One of my daughters favorite snacks is Perfect Keto Nut Butter on celery or anything, really! This delicious blend of Macadamia, Cashew, and Coconut provides the rich taste and texture of your formerly favorite sugar-y nut butters, but this one has the Perfect Keto stamp of approval. 

Over the years, Perfect Keto has never let me down. They continue to make Keto Supplements that help keep your body healthy and in Ketosis. And every once in a while they come out with a Keto Snack. This Nut Butter is my favorite!


I’m so excited because now it comes in individual Squeeze Packs!  They come in packs of 10 and I cannot wait to get my hands on them. Nut Butter is hard to enjoy away from home because of the oil it contains. If you’ve ever cleaned out a backpack after peanut butter escaped its ziplock bag, you know what I mean.

But with the new individual Squeeze Packs, I can send Kaia to school or practice with her favorite fuel with out worrying about it getting everywhere! 


Perfect Keto Nut Butter is perfect to eat as a snack with celery or even right out of the jar with a spoon.

You can also drizzle it over your favorite Keto Treats for an added dose of protein and fat or blend it up in a smoothie for a creamy texture.

If you are feeling really fancy, you can incorporate Perfect Keto Nut Butter into Keto Bakes. The added fat will give Keto Breads and Pancakes a denser richer texture and flavor.

OOOO maybe I should try Nut Butter Keto Brownies! I’ll get back to you on that.

Nui was featured on Shark Tank

In the end of November, My friends over at Nui appeared on Shark Tank to try to land an investor for their company. Nui has been doing so well as a company. It is the perfect time to expand!

Kristoffer & Victor had a wonderful presentation and all of the Sharks loved the cookies.

They got offers from Mr. Wonderful, Barbara, A-Rod! A-Rod even said that he knows a lady who loves cookies (that would be his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez). After some sweat and some serious negotiation, they accepted an offer from Alex Rodriguez!

Kristoffer & Victor are great entrepreneurs who know the benefit of hard work. With A-Rod on their team they will be unstoppable.



Nui, formerly Keto Kookie, was one of the very first Keto brands I fell in love with. Alex Rodriguez is the perfect fit for Nui. Many athletes love these cookies.  This couldn’t have happened to nicer guys. I’m so excited for them and the Keto community in general.

I’m SO PROUD of Kristoffer & Victor from @eatnui for landing A-Rod as their shark on Shark Tank!! You can catch their episode on Hulu!

Nui cookies are about to be more popular than ever, so be sure to order yours before they sell out. Also, You can still receive cookies by Christmas if you order before 12/18.

Who doesn't love bagels? Luckily, you don't have to give up bagels to live a Ketogenic Lifestyle. Just make them at home! 

This FatHead Dough makes bagels that have the perfect texture and consistency. Today, I kept it simple and topped the bagels off with Everything Seasoning, but you can make any flavor you want. 

Add Jalapeños and cheese on top for a spicy keto snack. Or stuff them with blueberries and top with nut butter for a keto breakfast. 

This Fathead Dough can also be used as a pizza dough. Check out this Fathead Pizza Recipe.

  • Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup of almond flour

  • ¾ cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tbsp. of cream cheese

  • 1 egg

  • Salt

  • 1 tbsp of Everything Bagel Seasoning

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Make the fat head dough add shredded cheese and cream cheese to a microwavable bowl, microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir the mixture and microwave again for 30 more seconds.

  3. Add the egg, salt, and almond flour to the cheese mixture and mix everything together gently.

  4. If dough is sticky sprinkle it with a little extra almond flour. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to firm up.

  5. Once dough is firm, divide into 6 balls and roll them out into logs.

  •  If you don’t have a donut pan you can place your round “wreaths” of dough onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking pad. They will just have a flat bottom, so you could make halves.

 

I love seeing the pictures people share with me on Instagram of their keto creations! Here are some bagels that @alliedoesketo made with my recipe!

Know Foods Thins- Finally a Keto Cracker

One of my favorite holiday party snacks is crackers and dip. Crackers are the perfect carrier for dip, but they are also dangerously high in carbs and definitely not keto.

I'm so glad I found Know Foods Thins. These cracker thins have only 1 net gram of Carbs and come in Classic and Garlic Herb.

Know Foods Thins come in two different flavors. My favorite is Garli Herb. They are made with ALMONDS, ALLULOSE, DRIED EGG WHITES, ORGANIC PREBIOTIC FIBER, FLAXSEED, COCONUT FLOUR, and HERBS MIX.

The Almonds and Coconut flour give the crackers a wonderful crunch that melts away in your mouth.

Know Foods Thins are sweetened with Allulose. Allulose is a sugar substitute. It shows up as Sugar on the nutritional panel, but it does not contribute to the Net Carb Count.

Finally I have Keto utensil with which to eat large amounts of dip and guacamole. Because lets face it, crackers are just spoons for quac.

But in all honesty, Know Foods Thins are good enough to eat with out dip. They are the perfect savory snack for parties and when you just need something salty and delicious.
