Low Carb Stuffing
This low carb stuffing has all the traditional flavors and textures as regular bread filled stuffing but it’s gluten-free, grain-free, and keto friendly. This keto stuffing doesn’t use cauliflower as the base, like most low carb stuffing recipes. It uses almond flour as the base.
No need to make or buy keto bread or a keto stuffing mix. This stuffing recipe uses minimal ingredients and can be made at once without the added expense of pre-made or store bought keto bread.
This low carb stuffing is vegetarian but you can easily add cooked sausage for extra flavor and texture. See the notes below for a vegan option. If you don’t need to eat keto, try this Gluten Free Stuffing.
Keto Stuffing Recipe
One thing to note about using almond flour is that it is NOT a 1-to-1 for other flours, like coconut flour. It has a lot more protien and fat so it reacts differently in recipes. It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two.
Always bring Almond meal or flour to room temperature before baking with it. If you use it cold, it’ll absorb more of the liquid and your batter will be thicker than it should be. And remember, because it’s made from almonds, it can go rancid, so keep track of when you opened the bag.
Can I use an egg replacer?
I haven’t tried using an egg replacer in this low carb stuffing recipe because of the amount of eggs that it calls for and many egg replacers have starches in them. I have had others comment on similar recipes that flaxegg worked well, but the end result was wetter.
If you use flaxegg you might want to toast your almond flour bread cubes before adding them to the other ingredients.
How to make Keto Stuffing
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk almond flour, salt, garlic powder, and baking soda.
- Add oil, water, and eggs.
- Mix until well combined.
- Spoon batter evenly into a 9X13 jelly roll pan (or glass pan) lined with parchment paper.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the center is set and the edges start to brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
- Once cooled, transfer the parchment paper with the almond bread to a cutting board and cut into 1-inch cubes.
- In a large cooking pot over medium heat, melt butter (or oil for a dairy-free option). Add onion and celery and cook until the onion is soft and translucent.
- Stir in thyme, sage, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
- Add almond bread cubes and stir everything together until the bread cubes are evenly coated. Drizzle broth over the stuffing mixture and toss until well mixed.
- Spoon keto stuffing into a 8X8 glass baking pan and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
Options for making keto stuffing:
Dairy-Free Keto Stuffing Option: Use oil or dairy-free butter instead of butter to saute the onions and celery.
Vegan Keto Stuffing Option: Use oil instead of the butter to saute the veggies, and veggie broth. Use flaxeggs instead of chicken eggs and toast the almond bread cubes to help dry them out after baking, before mixing into the stuffing mixture.
