What Are Keto Comfort Foods?
Before we get to the list of recipes, let’s define what keto comfort foods even are, just so we’re on the same page.
Comfort foods are anything that satisfies you and fulfills your cravings. They often have emotional connections to your past, too.
Did your mom always make you a certain type of soup when you were sick? What is the dessert that makes you feel happy every time you eat a bite? What is the food that you like to eat when the weather is awful and you stay inside, wrapped in a blanket?
Answer those questions, and you are one step closer to understanding what types of food are comfort foods for you.
The most common keto comfort foods will have rich flavors or a sauce of some kind. Cheese, peppers, cream, and chocolate are all common ingredients in keto comfort foods.
Alright! Are you ready for some ideas? Let’s get right into it!

Have you heard of keto chaffles? They are crispy, savory mini waffles made from eggs and cheese. Low-carb chaffles will remind you of Saturday morning cartoons!
There are a ton of ways to change them up, too.
Sprinkle some pumpkin spice and top with sugar-free whipped cream. Drizzle a little bit of sugar-free chocolate syrup on top to make them taste like a Sundae. Or sprinkle them with Swerve confectioner’s sugar substitute to make them taste like keto funnel cakes.
Bacon Cheese Egg Bites
Cheese and bacon are two of the most common comfort foods, any time of year. In the fall, a few steaming bacon cheese egg bites will warm you up from the inside out.
