50 Mouthwatering Keto Recipes You Need In Your Life

New to the Keto lifestyle? Then you need to keep your mouth inspired while you build a new eating habit in your life.

Just because you are trying to change how you look and feel does not mean that you have to be bored with your food options or feel like you are eating cardboard.


If you are a Keto veteran, then you too need to stay inspired with your meal options so you can keep getting the nutrition your body needs to hit your goals and keep a smile on your face while you do it!

Let’s dive into this list of Keto Dinner Recipes that I have out together and keep rocking our daily meals.


1. Keto Buttermilk Pancakes

You can never go wrong with pancakes. These keto buttermilk pancakes are dairy, nut, and gluten free, making these super allergy-friendly.

Make sure you watch the toppings you add to the pancakes, as syrups and fruit are full of carbs.

2.Pan Roasted Portobello Egg Toast

In this vegetarian keto recipe, the usual breakfast toast is replaced with pan seared portobello mushrooms, then topped with tomatoes and an egg.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can cook the egg and tomatoes the way you want, and it’ll still taste delicious either way!

3. Instant Pot Keto Chicken Soup

Ingredients: whole chicken, celery, carrots, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, parsley.

You can cook this chicken soup recipe in less than 45 minutes from start to finish! When you use a whole chicken, you not only save yourself time in meal prep, but you also get to enjoy the delicious chicken meat on top of a salad or in the broth.

4. Keto Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Ingredients: olive oil, red onion, cumin powder, cayenne pepper, garlic, chicken breasts, dried oregano, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, salt, pepper, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, red chili pepper.

Cook this fiery Mexican-inspired dish for an extra kick of heat this winter. My favorite part of this soup is the toppings so make sure you don’t skimp on those. Layer on those slices of tomatoes, avocados, and chopped cilantro. And if you’re adventurous, then throw a few slices of red chili peppers on top as well!

5. Keto Chicken Ramen Soup

Ingredients: chicken breast, chicken broth (or bone broth), eggs, zucchini, ginger, garlic, tamari sauce or coconut aminos, avocado oil.

If you’re missing your Asian dishes on Keto, then give this simple recipe a try. It’s got lots of traditional flavor but uses zucchini noodles instead of high carb wheat noodles. Particularly, the ginger and garlic add lots of flavor to this basic chicken soup recipe.

6. Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients: shredded chicken, fresh parsley, coconut oil, onion, carrot, rib celery, thyme, homemade bone broth,  eggs, salt, black pepper, green onion (Optional).

In this “noodle” soup it is actually beaten eggs that, when poured in slowly, will become the noodle-like texture. The broth in this recipe is filled with healthy veg and some protein rich chicken, making this perfect for when you’re feeling a little bit under the weather.

7. 5-Min Prosciutto Avocado Fat Bombs

Ingredients: prosciutto or deli ham or turkey slices,  avocado, lime, 

In this recipe, you use only three ingredients. These make great Keto snacks when you need something to keep you going, but you can also use them as an appetizer or as party food. Don’t skip on the lime juice though, because it keeps the avocado from turning brown and gives these bombs a real zing!

8. Italian Salsa

Ingredients: grape tomatoes, shallot, garlic, fresh basil leaves.

This salsa could not be quicker or easier to make! This makes a perfect Paleo side for a dinner or a topping for spaghetti squash and the tomato and basil together give you the true flavors of the Mediterranean. You could add a little drizzle of olive oil or a handful of pine nuts to add a little extra texture and it would also taste great with a sprinkle of sea salt.

9. Low Carb Mushroom Cauliflower Rice

I love mushrooms and really enjoyed Asian-style dishes before I changed to Keto. Cauliflower rice is a staple in my home now so I do not have to give up all those wonderful Asian flavors!

When Jennifer posted this recipe on her blog, So Beautifully Balanced, I just had to check it out.

Combining my love of mushrooms and Asian style cooking was too good to pass up. Add a cut of beef, chicken, or fish and this make a great meal!

10. Keto Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

This recipe from Have Butter Will Travel

Speaking of Asian-style flavors, this terrific recipe serves it up in spades!

It also includes a link to  a noodle substitute if you want to try something different besides making zoodles. (That’s Keto-lingo for “noodles made from fresh zucchini.”)

This recipe makes for a tremendous meal and is wonderful hot or cold. You can enjoy it at the office for lunch or as a summertime dinner!

11. Keto Cheeseburger Casserole Skillet

Most of the time, when you want a hamburger on Keto you get out the iceberg lettuce and wrap up a patty or two with your fix’ns and try to enjoy it without leaking and dripping all over yourself.

This awesome recipe idea solves that problem by turning your classic hamburger into an awesome skillet-casserole creation.

View this recipe today and let the little kid inside cheer! You can always add or subtract toppings and make this your own!

12.Low Carb Chicken Alfredo

It is no secret in my house that I am a sauce guy.

One of my favorites is an alfredo sauce and this marvelous recipe combines that with one of my favorite vegetables, asparagus.

Throw all this together with some tender chicken and my family might have to cook up another meal for dinner… I might not want to share!

13. Bacon Tuna Boats (Mayo-Free!)

Ingredients: tuna fish, cooked bacon, scallions, fresh flat-leaf parsley, rib celery, Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning Blend, ripe avocado, lemon juice, black pepper, English cucumbers.

This is a perfect recipe for people who don’t or can’t, use mayonnaise to bind the salad together. The creamy texture of the avocado makes a fabulous substitute, making this salad a great filling for cucumber boats. You may like to peel the cucumbers first as the skin can be slightly tough, but you can tell when you cut them whether you need to do this.

16. Coconut Flour Pancakes

These coconut flour pancakes will simply melt in your mouth. Now, these pancakes aren’t sweet by themselves, so make sure to use sugar-free maple syrup to make them extra delicious.

Here is a good quality sugar-free maple syrup.

I feel like these pancakes are quite simple, but you can make your own toppings to make it slightly more special. That’s especially if you have some friends over!


17. Almond Cream Cheese Keto Pancakes

If you’re looking for light, fluffy pancakes to eat this morning, this is your go-to recipe.

Love the smell and taste of cinnamon? Add a little bit more of it than recommended, you won’t regret it. As long as it’s not bitter!

Eat these with some raspberries to get some of that sweetness/acidity into the flavor pallet.


18. Keto Green Smoothie

Usually when you think of a smoothie, it’s packed with all sorts of fruits.

However, this recipe uses spinach and avocado, making it fairly low carb yet high in fat. This makes it the perfect keto breakfast recipe for on-the-go mornings.
