Another Variation

Keto Popcorn(Keto Puffs)

 

You’ll love these homemade keto puffs, which are a great Keto popcorn substitute! All you need is cheese and some patience. A quick and easy low-carb snack.

One ingredient: cheese. Nonetheless, it’s a snack I enjoy making on a regular basis, and I refer to it as “Keto popcorn.”

Full disclosure: I do occasionally consume “real” popcorn. My daughter has a popcorn machine that she uses on movie nights. We like our corn salted and buttered.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO EAT POPCORN ON A LOW CARB DIET?

In the grand scheme of things, maize popcorn isn’t the worst snack option.

One cup of air-popped corn has less than 5 net carbs, which is relatively low. The issue is, of course, the quantity. A typical serving of popcorn is 24 grams (3 cups), with 18 grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of fiber.

HOW TO CREATE

You can make these adorable little cheese puffs with a variety of cheeses and methods. I used parmesan and two kinds of cheddar.

PARMESAN.

In the image above, on the left. In the food processor, I blitzed it. I then separated the smaller bits with a sieve and only used the larger ones.

CHEDDAR, MATURE.

The image’s top right corner. I crumbled a block of cheddar with my hands. This results in more evenly sized rounded pieces (pop-corny even before popping!). It’s a little salty, so you’ll be satisfied quickly. It is my personal favorite.

PRE-SLICED MILD CHEDDAR

On a grey background. This produces airy bubbles with little flavor. I don’t normally buy this type of cheese because I find it to be quite bland.

Cover it with a kitchen towel or muslin (to prevent dust accumulation) and leave it in a dry, warm place for 3 days to completely dry out. Your Keto popcorn will only pop if it is completely dry and hard.

3.) After 3 days (or 2 days if your cheese was dry to begin with), preheat your oven to 200 Celsius / 390 Fahrenheit and bake the cheese for 4-5 minutes. Place a second baking tray above your cheese tray to keep the pieces from flying around.

This low carb popcorn substitute is super crunchy and crispy, and I think it would make an excellent snack. Experiment with various cheeses to discover your personal favorite!

OTHER DELICIOUS LOW CARB AND KETO SNACKS WE LIKE:

Dips for vegetables and veggie sticks (celery, fennel, peppers, carrots, radishes, cauliflower florets)

Low Carb Pizza Bites are similar to pizza but without the carbs.

Slices of raw sweet potato with cream cheese / almond butter (while the potato is uncooked, the majority of the carbs are resistant starches that are not absorbed).

Low Carb Chips with 2 Ingredients

Pepperoni Chips from the Oven

Grain-Free Pretzels from Genius

Olives

Nuts and seeds (roast with olive oil and spices or herbs such as cumin, paprika, garlic salt, rosemary, and thyme).

 

Kale chips are the only way my kids will consume kale. They adore it (and I do too). The recipe can be found here.

Low Carb Paleo Almond Crackers

Ham rollups are ham sandwiches that are filled with cucumber, cream cheese, or mashed avocado. Alternatively, use nori seaweed sheets instead.

I could go on, but I believe this is sufficient. And I haven’t even mentioned the sweet treats!

INGREDIENTS

100g / 3.5 oz cheddar

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. If you’re using sliced cheddar, cut it into 0.5-inch (1-cm) squares. If you’re using a cheddar block, crumble it into the same size with your hands.
  2. Cover the cheese with muslin or a kitchen towel to keep it dust-free and store it in a cool, dry place for up to 3 days. The cheese should be completely hard and dry.
  3. Preheat your oven to 390 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for FOUR-FIVE minutes, on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place a second baking tray closely above the tray to keep it from popping all over your oven.

NOTES:

  • I estimated 1 portion to be about 1 handful of cheese popcorn.
  • Sharp cheddar and parmesan are more satisfying than mild, pre-sliced cheddar. The latter, on the other hand, tastes more like “real” popcorn, with a more neutral flavor.
  • If the cheese is not completely dry or the pieces are too large, it will melt rather than pop. Patience is essential!

4 thoughts on “Keto Puffs”
  1. Keto cheese puffs were awful. Very eggy and didn’t have much cheese flavor at even when using all extra sharp cheese.

  2. Does anyone know if and how these could be made with coconut flour and cheese that is not aged (Ricotta or cream cheese)? I made the original recipe and thought it tasted eggy but when you start adding in some mix ins they are delicious. Some of my faves are chopped pickled jalapeno + parsley, chopped pepperoni + italian seasoning, chopped ham + broccoli rice and my favorite so far bacon + chive. Thank you for the recipe.
