The best Keto cookbooks to help you whip the most delicious high-fat, low-carb meals with ease.
The Keto diet is a strict low-carb, high-fat diet with moderate protein.
The macronutrients for the Keto diet are 5-10% carbohydrates, 65-80% fat and 15-25% protein.
With only up to 10 % of your daily calories coming from carbs, cooking Keto meals can be a real challenge.
Not only that, many people are not used to eating as much fat as a Keto diet requires. This leaves many Keto diet beginners feeling lost on how and where to get all the fats to meet the macro needs.
Keto is definitely one diet that takes a lot of measuring and calculations to come up with the right meals.
While all the nutrition calculations in the kitchen can be a real headache, there is an easier way.
And that is well-crafted Keto cookbooks.
Having Keto recipes for your favorite dishes or desserts make reaching ketosis effortless.
They are shortcuts to your fat burning keto life.
Thankfully, there are many Keto cookbooks that offer thousands of high-fat, low-carb recipes.
With these Keto cookbooks in hand, you’ll never get bored or overwhelmed.
Instead, you’ll be enjoying delicious, crave-able high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet meals.
While there are many cookbooks I call my favorite, I picked my absolute top ten.
Here are the 5 best Keto diet cookbooks you need to start your ketogenic diet.
It’s full of delicious Keto recipes for all meals, breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. Combined all, you can find about 125 keto recipes in this one single book.
Now that alone is a valuable addition to your keto cookbooks, there is more to this complete guide.
It talks about good fats vs bad fats, dirty and clean foods, and even some keto exercise tips.
If you are starting off your keto diet for the first time, this book helps you lay down the basics of a ketogenic diet. It also gives you a good starting point with their 28-day keto meal plan for weight loss.
Recipes wise, I like that it covers many keto staples.
You’ll find everything from Keto Devil Eggs to Keto Almond Fudge.
I haven’t tried all the recipes, but there are several I’ve been still meaning to try.
All in all, if you’re thinking about starting the Keto diet, this book is a must for getting started.
As the book title says, it’s a collection of 5-ingredient keto recipes.
Needless to say, every recipe in the book takes only 5 ingredients to make.
Not just that, every ingredient is a familiar, easy-to-get item.
While many of you may be much braver in the kitchen, I’m one person who craves comfort and familiarity in recipes.

If you find typical keto recipes overwhelming, start with this. You won’t regret picking this one up.
Her Craveable Keto also needs no introduction, and it’s super famous for her Keto Lasagna.
When I learned how she created lasagna pasta with a unique combination of cheese, I was blown away.
She is one of the greatest recipe engineers in the keto cooking niche and her dishes are by far the most crave-worthy.
I won’t lie. Some of her recipes are not the easiest nor simplest. But if you are willing to put in the work and time, her dishes are amazing in taste!
If I remember correctly, this book is how I learned keto sweetener alternatives. When to use which sweetener and such was great info trying out Keto cooking for the first time.
I also love that their book is very easy to approach. What I mean by that is many keto cookbooks I’ve come across are very technical and scientific. It’s due to Keto diet being closely tied to the medical field, and I appreciate their scientific base. While I appreciate that, as a starter book, it pays to break down the concepts and basics.
In my opinion, Megha and Matt accomplished that with this book so well. They keep it light, easy-to-understand, and fun while educating beginners on the fundamentals.
Recipes wise, it covers a wide variety from Protein Keto Waffles to Keto Meatloaf. I think there are enough recipes for everyone.
They are fairly easy to make and don’t have crazy ingredients that’ll throw you off.
It’s always on my list of keto cookbooks to recommend.
Not only that, it includes a well structured 30-day Keto meal plan you can use for your first month on the diet.
It’s a complete guide to living and thriving with the ketogenic lifestyle.
