Keto meat pie with a soft, fluffy crust

Keto meat pie always turns out better than the carby one. Not only because it’s healthier to avoid mixing carbs with fat, but also because of the specific rich ingredients. Keto recipes and in general low-carb recipes pack more actual flavour, the old-fashioned magic of butter and eggs and only the best spices.

Before you skip the intro and find out if you already have all the ingredients, allow us to remind you of something. Healthy home baking projects should be enjoyed with all your senses. Now, as with all our recipes, we use typical Mediterranean ingredients. You, on the other side, can play with your Keto meat pie spices and herbs. In fact, we would love to hear some of your ideas for the seasoning or type of meat to use in this pie.

All the Greek Goes Keto meat pie recipes

We started with the classical Keto Mediterranean meat pie which has a bit of crunchy crust. Then we moved to a version where mushrooms were added. Further Ketonisation took us to the unbelievable zero-carb boureki which still is our favourite. We also created a carnivore shepherd’s pie and created a crustless version of a creamy meat pie. However, this one is a Keto meat pie for lovers of soft and chewy texture. The flavour is still Mediterranean and the feeling is very old-fashioned.

What flour should you use?

You might notice how we left this detail up to you! If you want to prepare something lower in carbs, macadamia flour would be the best. Almond flour mixed with an equal amount of coconut flour gives great results. You can also mix sesame flour with hazelnut flour. Always try to add a special touch to your creations. A specific herb or spice can change the whole image.

We are here to inspire and motivate all the creative Keto bakers and chefs. After all, the low-carb universe does not mean you will never spoil yourself with some decadent cooking and baking creations!

    1. Hi Naz,
      coconut flour has the ability to thicken the batter so you’ll need a bit more almond flour to get the same consistency. Please let us know how it went if you try it. 🙂
