I had the honor to review the Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook recently. I have followed Maya Krampf for several years and really like her recipes. She really does make a point to keep them simple and easy to prepare. And her cookbook is just more of the same – easy, delicious recipes that all fit the low carb/keto profile. Even though I don’t eat keto consistently, I do love keeping some keto recipes in my diet.
I tried several recipes from the cookbook before doing this review. My favorite was the Slow Cooker Creamy Salsa Chicken. This recipe is so easy to through together in your crockpot and then enjoy it when you come home. And it only has 4 ingredients.
I also tried the pumpkin coconut flour pancakes because I have had a lot of fresh pumpkin around here (it was October in PA). These use coconut flour as the flour of choice, lots of eggs, and pumpkin of course. They were a great and easy breakfast and were liked by all my family.
And my daughter made the fudgy brownies for my birthday. They were amazing – so fudgy and chewy. I am definitely in the camp that likes fudgy over cake like brownies, so I was very happy. I will be making these again for some other celebration.
One of my favorite parts about the cookbook is the beginning section where she goes into detail about fathead dough. If you are not familiar with fathead dough, you need to be (unless you have to be dairy free). Fathead dough is made with mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, egg and coconut flour or almond flour. Maya does not just give recipes for the fathead dough (both kinds) but she spend several pages going into detail about how to melt the cheese, knead the dough, make your recipes and bake it. She also includes tips on how to work with fathead dough. And of course she has numerous recipes she shares in the cookbook that are based on fathead dough.
Italian Garlic Bread Sticks
The third recipe I made and am able to share with you are the Italian Garlic Bread Sticks. If you eat low carb and keto, you begin to miss treats like this sometimes. Maya uses her fathead dough as the base for these bread sticks. The recipe for the fathead dough is also at her website (and in the cookbook). I will share that link here, and then if you want to try the bread sticks you can use the recipe I am able to share from the book with you.
