Eggs and bacon or eggs and sausage with black or collagen coffee are typical keto breakfasts, but this keto egg bake is a nutrient-dense and satiating option for a weekend morning when you have a bit more time. Weave it into your Sunday meal prep routine, bake it, cool it, portion it and wrap in parchment paper, and store it in the refrigerator. On busy weekday mornings, take a portion out of the fridge to warm up on the counter, or to heat for a few minutes in the oven or toaster oven. Re-wrap the portioned egg bake in the parchment paper, grab a napkin (don’t forget your travel coffee mug), and you have breakfast on the go.
Instead of the hash browns or bread cubes you might typically find in an egg bake or breakfast casserole, we used grated turnips, but you could also substitute grated parsnips, zucchini, or even carrots or sweet potatoes if you want a Primal egg bake. We used ground chicken, but you could also use ground turkey, beef, sausage, bison, or lamb. Same thing for the other vegetables—instead of kale and cabbage, you could use Swiss or rainbow chard, shredded Brussels sprouts, or baby spinach.Read More
Few words exist that can elicit an immediate mouth-watering response like these: dark chocolate and bacon. As simple as cooking can get (if that’s what we’re calling baking bacon, and melting chocolate), if you’re Primal, keto, or Primal-keto, you likely have these two ingredients on hand in your kitchen most of the time. Very dark chocolate (90%) has a bitterness akin to coffee that enhances all of the flavors paired with it, and the slightly sweet, salty, smoky flavor combination of the chocolate bacon tantalizes the tongue even more than our Dark Chocolate Macadamia Bark with Sea Salt. You can guild the lily by adding toasted unsweetened coconut or finely chopped nuts to the chocolate before it sets, but we prefer this as a twosome.Read More

On occasion, a reliable and tasty basic cookie recipe that’s remade to be keto-friendly can be useful when you need to bake something for the kids’ class but don’t want to pump the already energetic kids full of refined sugar, when you’re having guests over that might expect or appreciate dessert, or when you want a nostalgic rainy- or snowy-day activity that perfumes the kitchen with melted butter and toasted sugar. Let the kids help by imprinting the dough with their favorite cookie cutters, icing with melted coconut butter, and decorating the cookies with dark chocolate chips or trimmed pieces of fresh or dried fruit. If you aren’t able to use the sweeteners suggested in this recipe, you can swap in coconut or cane sugar (the carbs will change if you do so, of course).Read More
These little fat bombs are the perfect treat and a great way to up the healthy fats in your diet while eating keto. We used Primal Kitchen® Peanut Butter Collagen here, but you can swap it out with vanilla or chocolate varieties. Store these fat bombs in the fridge or freezer to keep them firm. For a more chocolatey fat bomb, melt your favorite super dark or sugar-free chocolate and dip the tops of the chilled fat bombs in them. Dust with more Collagen Fuel and chill before enjoying.Read More
If you’re looking for a dessert worthy of a holiday (let alone a new decade), look no further. Rich, smooth, and decadent on the inside; crunchy and nutty on the outside. The full effect? Nothing short of fabulous. Enjoy as a “small bite” portion with coffee after dinner, or allow yourself the total indulgence of savoring the full tart.
What we love about this recipe (besides everything) is the customizable flavor. Add espresso powder or a flavored extract like vanilla, orange or peppermint for a bold as well as sweet taste.Read More
