What are keto copycat recipes?

You won’t have to spend tons of time searching for restaurant nutrition calculators and menus to see how many carbs are in your favourite foods. When you cook the food yourself, you know what’s in it. That’s why I prefer to make my own food at home instead of eating out!

Today, I am sharing the ultimate keto copycat recipe guide showcasing recipes from some of our favourite places.

I’ve split this guide up into easy sections to help you find what you are looking for. Scroll through and find exactly what you are craving!

  • Breakfast copycat recipes – yes, you can enjoy your favourite fast food breakfasts at home
  • Bread & Cracker copycat recipes – missing your favourite chili crackers or your gluten-free bread? I’ve got you covered.
  • Dinners & Takeouts, low-carb and keto style – this is the most popular section. Fried chicken, KFC, meat-lovers pizza, nachos, burrito bowls … they’re all here for you.
  • Desserts & Sweet Treats – these too got the low-carb and keto makeover. Yay! Cheesecakes, chocolate spread, and even ice-cream bars.
  • Copycat sauces – stop the tantrums when you’re kids aren’t allowed regular ketchup made with sugar, just make your own in the Instant Pot, easy peasy. Jam/jelly, I’ve got that too.
  • Copycat drinks – this is the one you’ve been waiting for. Copycat keto Starbucks, whipped coffee (TikTok coffee), and even your favourite heartwarming pumpkin spice latte.
