Testing Tuesdays - Heylo Keto Bread - Heylo (£4.19/4.29 a loaf)
The Easy Keto Cookbook

We are back reviewing bread again. If you've read our cook book you'll know we happily cook anything from scratch, we even have a bread roll recipe, but we do sometimes find it easier to buy bread. There are many different suppliers, offering different bread styles with very different carb counts. Today we are reviewing two loaves from Heylo. Artisan Seeded Keto Bread - 0.3g carbs per slice Lighter White Keto bread - 1.5g carbs per slice The first things you'll have noticed is just how different the carb count is! Why? In our mind the white loaf slices are slightly bigger and also they are j ..read more

Testing Tuesdays - Keto Milk Chocolate - DGF (£7.99 for 100g)
The Easy Keto Cookbook

If you read our last blog you will know that we found out that DGF were making bread because we had just placed an order - and that order contained some chocolate. So now we are getting serious! ...Chocolate Keto chocolate sounds a bit like a dream. Can I really be on a keto diet, avoiding sugar, and still have chocolate? There are a few Keto chocolate options out there, some good, some not. So where does DGF stack up? We think that DGF have been on a journey with their chocolate, and we have been on that journey with them! I remember Christmas 2021 when DGF launched their Advent Chocolates. W ..read more

Testing Tuesdays - Keto Bread Roll DGF (£tbc)
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
1y ago
We're back! We have taken sometime away from blogging - but we are now back and committed to try to post at least a couple of times a week. And what a time to start...... I was talking (well messaging to be precise) with Dan from DGF, just general chatting, and he mentioned that they are about to start making and selling their own Keto bread! Now I have tried most brands of Keto bread. Some are a bit thin, some are a bit carboardy (I know it's not a real word), some are quite high in carbs and they all suffer from the issue that they can grow mould really quickly! So bread from the guy I trust ..read more

Foodie Fridays - Buffalo Chicken Bake/Dip
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
1y ago
We are always on the look out for new recipes that we can make a keto version of. Especially recipes which include some of our favourite ingredients. We'll admit some recipes just can't be made keto, whilst others, well you can take the carbs out but they just don't taste good! That's not the case with this recipe!! This is something I'd seen and wanted to have a go at a keto version ..... and it tastes so good. We served it with some keto bread to tear and dip into the buffalo chicken, but you could serve this almost as a cheesy casserole with a vegetable on the side. So here's the recipe for ..read more

Foodie Fridays - Summer BBQ
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
Summer is great for Keto followers! You can BBQ to your heart's delight - so long as the weather holds out. However ..... be careful around the supermarket/butcher ready made BBQ treats. Those chicken skewers, lamb kofta, kebabs even plain old burgers and sausages can have very sugary dressings or additions ..... not very keto friendly. So make your own (well not the sausages ..... but look for low carb brands like Heck) and enjoy the range of options summer offers. Couple of ideas we have tried recently that you might like to try.... Chicken Satay Marinade chicken strips in a little oil, soy ..read more

Testing Tuesdays - Strawberries and Cream Blondie from DGF (£12.99/ 8)
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
For this week's testing we are back with DGF - Deliciously Guilt Free. We like DGF. They have a range of cakes, blondies, brownies, even chocolate. All keto. And every week they do a few items that are special for that week ..... so there's always lots of choice, although for some of the weekly specials you need to be onto their website sharpish, as they can sell out quickly. We bought these Strawberries and Cream Blondies (the blondie page is here) some time ago, and as DGF recommend, we froze them. That way we can buy enough to qualify for free shipping ...... without eating everything at on ..read more

Foodie Fridays - Strawberry Compote
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
If you have read our Testing Tuesdays blog this week you will know that we promised the recipe to make Strawberry Compote. So here it is. This recipe makes a really versatile compote - think stewed strawberries or unset jam - which can be used in so many ways. We have used it... with or as a filling in sponge cake (see photo) mixed into yoghurt (but watch the carbs from the yoghurt!) as a topping on strawberry fluff (see photo - the recipe is in our cookbook) on chaffles (keto waffles) with whipped cream etc. The recipe is really easy, quick to make and gives a great result... Slice 6 stra ..read more

Testing Tuesdays - Lo-Dough Vanilla Sponge Mix (£5.49)
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
(Apologies for the lack of new blogs ....... we've been a bit busy, but we're back) We like a slice of cake! Either on it's own, with a coffee or as a dessert. So when Lo-Dough sent us one of their vanilla sponge mixes we were excited to try this out. We have bought keto cakes online before, pre-made, and these tend to be individual brownies or blondies, so it was interesting to see how a full sized sponge cake would work. Making it was easy. Add the correct amount of water to the cake mix, blend well until it is smooth and light, then place in a tin and cook in the oven. The instructions sugg ..read more

Foodie Fridays - Pecan and Chocolate Cookies......mmmmmm
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
I love cookies! Who doesn't? We don't have these all the time....we keep them as a treat. We stay away from them at times when we might be tempted off keto, as these are lovely and a little bit sweet...which might be too tempting at times. This recipe makes 10 cookies (I can't remember where we found the basis for the recipe - but we have amended it quite a bit to our taste) and each cookie is around 1g carbs Pecan and Chocolate Cookies Place 60g of soft butter in a bowl, add 60g of sweetener (we use erythritol) and mix using an electric hand blender. When mixed add one egg and 3 tsp of vani ..read more

Foodie Fridays - Mushrooms count.....but how much?
The Easy Keto Cookbook
by Jonathan
2y ago
When you start keto, and indeed at any point when you are following a keto lifestyle, you will struggle to find out the carb count for certain products. It's important. If you are on a low carb diet of [say] no more than 20g a day, you'd be surprised just how easy it is to break through this limit without really knowing about it. Indeed, when I read forums on social media, there are always people asking how to count carbs and net carbs. It's not easy For UK labels you would deduct polyols from the carb number (but not always on a 1 for 1 basis, depending on the type of sweetener used). For US ..read more
