Keto Biltong Cheese Bread (Gluten Free)
So you know that I'm always for a cooking challenge and coming with new fun ways to use daily foods or just to step up the game of eating healthier and nutrient dense. This recipe is no news since we are using nutritious foods in a delicious scone!
For this recipe I wanted to include some biltong, and if you are not familiar with biltong then you are up to a treat. What it is is a high quality steak that has been air-dried and to the bite it's softer than jerky. It's just so good! You have to try it.
About this Keto Biltong Cheese Bread:
Okay, these savory muffins are dense, nourishing and flavorful. As a side dish or alone these are perfect and a super easy to make with a touch of biltong stick, cheese and bell pepper. A combination of flavors you just can't resist!
For the flour we are using, coconut and ground flax seed, so this is a very high fiber recipe! We've got eggs, biltong (of course) and cheese, preferably grassfed to make sure we are getting all the goods in a savory muffin.
This is a nutrient dense scone! High quality protein, no additives, artificial ingredients. All simple and wholesome ingredients, these savory muffins are just perfect as a snack or a side dish along with some garlic butter, how does that sound?
Check for your ingredients! I believe that it's so important to get quality ingredients no matter what type of lifestyle you follow or live by. When it comes to animal products I recommend getting grass-fed and pastured raised whenever it's possible; that also means that animals were more likely to be treated better.
Check for your sales at your supermarket, buy meats with your local farmers and asked them about how they treated and fed their animals. Eggs are now find organic and pastured raised in almost every supermarket and you'll be surprised by the difference: better taste, better yolk and higher in omega-3's.
For the biltong I used the brand Stryve that you can get on Amazon. And the ingredients here are simple and their biltong is fire, AKA, delicious!
Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Keto Biltong Cheese Bread:
MCT or Coconut Oil
Simple ingredients that create a savory masterpiece while being keto and gluten free! Such a winner whether you thrive in keto or not; these are irresistible, easy to make and fun as a Sunday baking activity!
Ways to have these muffins:
Ghee or butter with garlic

Overall this recipe is:
Meal Prep Friendly
The end result
Soft, chewy and with crispy outside, moist inside. These are just amazing, the biltong taste plays so well with the cheese and the bell peppers. Even though we are skipping the flour these are fluffy and soft thanks to the cheese, since gluten acts like the glue in conventional baking methods.
Out of the conventional here! Keto, gluten free and heavenly muffin that will be great at your next brunch with family or friends or even as a meal prep addition to pair with some veggies and protein.
Pro tip! Toast them or air fry them for a few minutes to make them even crispier and irresistible. I air fried mine for 3 minutes, but that also depends on your airfryer, I find that this changes from air fryer to air fryer.
This is a great recipe that your family or friends will love! Easy to prepare and elegant and fun no matter the occasion, this recipe is made to enjoy in the most effortless and most delicious way ever, I mean... only simple and minimal ingredients in a high protein, paleo and dairy free tropical vibes in a bite!
