Keto 101 – Keto Baking Essentials

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you already know I’m all about taking a regular dish and figuring out how to ketofy it.

Keto Baking Essentials – Tools

Keto Baking Essentials Mixing Bowls

You’ll want all the basic tools if you don’t already have them including:

  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Baking sheets (perfect for my Gluten-Free Provencal Tomato Tart)
  • Muffin tins
  • Cheese grater
  • Glass baking dishes
  • Loaf and bundt pans
  • Pie plates
  • A blender
  • A scale (helps for portion control when counting macros)
  • Mixing bowls
  • Mixing spoons
  • Spoons, forks, and knives
  • Whisk
  • Oven thermometer
  • Aluminum foil
  • Ziploc bags
  • Storage containers for your yummy treats

These are enough to get you started, but if you have the coin in your budget, I also recommend a few additional tools.

Optional but highly recommended tools:

  • Food processor
  • Hand mixer (because though the whisk can help you get rid of bat wings, you’re a busy gal with a need for speed!)
  • Stand mixer (if you’re ready to be a little extra)
  • Silicone baking mat and/or parchment paper
  • Pastry cutter
  • Spatulas – I recommend having both metal and silicone ones on hand
  • Piping bags and tips (or you can just use Ziploc bags)
  • Cooling rack – You’ll thank me for this one, trust me
