Ah! I have a cookbook!
Vegan Keto Protein Bars
This is far and away the most common question I get: What’s your favorite protein bar? These are the bars I actually eat and recommend! There are others out there for sure, but I don’t feel comfortable suggesting something I haven’t tried!
- Julian Bakery Pegan Bars – great macros, I like the taste, but it’s an acquired one for sure
- Raw Rev Glo Bars – These are super delicious, but are around 5-6g net carbs each, which some can fit into their macros, but it’s a little trickier
Vegan Keto Supplements
While I try to get too caught up in taking supplements, I definitely recommend finding an electrolyte powder/drop to add to your water. I really like the one from Ultima.
Exogenous Ketones are also pretty trendy right now. I don’t take these regularly, nor do I think they’re totally necessary, but if you’re going to experiment, make sure you purchase a high-quality supplement from a reputable brand like Perfect Keto.
So, this isn’t really a supplement, but I get a lot of questions about which blood monitor to use. I don’t test every day (nor do you have to – in fact, you don’t need to test with a blood monitor at all…), but when I do test, the one I’ve had the most success with is by Keto Mojo.
Tools For Vegan Keto Cooking
I recently upgraded to a bigger spiralizer, and I’m glad I did! My handheld one is still great for adding small amounts of veggie noodles to a dish, but this big guy is just so much more efficient…
Do you need a high-powered blender? No, probably not, but it will save you a boatload of time and effort if you regularly make smoothies, sauces, soups or pretty much anything else that needs to be blended. I also use mine to make homemade nut and seed flours, which saves a solid amount of cash. A high-quality food processor can also handle some of these tasks!
Vegan Keto Ingredients
If you’re looking to stock up your pantry to do some low carb baking, this list is a good place to start!
There are now tons of protein powders out there for you to enjoy! I talk more in-depth about low carb vegan protein powders in this post.
- Coconut Flour
- Coconut Manna (also known as coconut butter, or creamed coconut)
- Psyllium Husk – I’ve only recently started using this in keto baking – it’s surprisingly useful!
- Ground Flax Seed – to prevent rancidity, it’s best to grind flaxseed yourself, though if you do buy ground flaxseeds, store them in a tightly sealed container in your freezer!
Sugar Free Sweeteners:
Freeze Dried Fruit:
While it probably doesn’t occur to most people to use fruit as a keto baking ingredient, love adding freeze dried fruit to recipes. Firstly, as long as it’s sealed, freeze dried fruit can live in your pantry for quite a while, so you can use a little bit at a time. Second, it’s way more flavorful than adding fresh or frozen fruit, which helps keep the carb count down!
- Cacao butter
- Full fat canned coconut milk
- Matcha (green tea) powder
- Coconut oil
- Unsweetened baker’s chocolate
- low sugar chocolate
- vanilla extract (a lot of extracts contain sugar, so read labels!)
- cacao powder
- assorted commonly used baking spices
- baking soda, baking powder and apple cider vinegar
