    Avocados are known for their creamy, rich texture, but with a little baking and some cheese, they can be turned into a delightfully crispy snack. Choose almond flour instead of the rice flour option, and remember to store them in an airtight container so they stay crunchy. You can pair them with any of the dips below, or enjoy them alone.

    These mighty little bites pack a good dose of protein, along with some fat. Tender button mushrooms are baked with a filling of crab meat and mayonnaise. The flavor of them is similar to crab cakes, but without any of the carbohydrate-heavy filler that crab cakes require for binding.

    On a keto eating plan, it can be tough to remember that your body also needs a sufficient intake of fiber. Help up your fiber game in a yummy way with these cheesy kale chips.

    High fat cream cheese takes on a starring role in this unctuous queso dip. It's got two cheeses for variety's sake, and chipotle and jalapeno make it so zesty, it doesn't read nearly as heavily as you'd think it might. Pair it with crudites, the avocado chips above, keto tortilla chips below, or almond flour tortillas.

    Keto favorite cauliflower is a low carb swap from potatoes for these hash browns. Thought they do require a tablespoon of cornstarch to hold together properly, when divided by servings the carb count for that is minimal. Beyond cauliflower, these feature cheddar cheese, garlic, and chives.

    Sure, you could buy prepared coconut chips, but how extra fun is it to crack open a fresh coconut yourself? That's all you'll need for this recipe, besides some salt. Because coconut is so high in fat, no additional oil is needed for baking them. The taste will be even more coconut-y than packaged coconut chips.
