  • I applaud you! As a severe diabetic that can’t touch a carb you have my deepest gratitude! Next I challenge you to my ultimate keto holy grail, Make some keto croissants, please!!!

  • This looked delicious! I’d love to see a keto version of French toast next.

    Great recipe! I will be trying it out 🙂 My challenge….Keto, gluten free, dairy free chicken pot pie.

  • Awesome vide. Thank you so much for this. I am paleo and for treats i eat keto because wheat bothers me so badly. It has been so long since I have had pie. this is fantastic

  • Looks yummy! I know this is keto, so is it safe to assume gluten free too? I have been searching for a gluten free biscuit that actually tastes like a regular biscuit.

    Great recipe. Could we use kappa carageen instead of gelatin, or is the temperature gradient too high?

      You could as it begins to hydrate around 158F. But it will take some testing to perfect.

  • Great video. I’m interested in one of the holy grails of keto baking — the perfect very low carb bread and/or hamburger buns. There are a lot of options out there that include vital wheat gluten as an ingredient, but I’m looking for something gluten free.

    Great demonstration! I have 2 questions. First, I have RM transglutanminase on hand. Can it sub for the TI? Second, can you consider creating a carnivore version of the crust? LOL! Maybe using whey protein for base?

      Yes, you can substitute the TI for RM. We can look into making a carnivore version as a possibility!
