Keto or low carb rusks 2

More low carb than keto but still delicious

Ann’s low carb rusks
6 grams carbs per rusk

Since making the original video on how to make rusks we have gone onto a keto diet so I have experimented with the original recipe and have come up with this recipe which is equally delicious but I believe better for you health-wise due to the reduction in carbs and the replacement of margarine with butter. Feel free to do your own experimenting but if you do, try to keep the total of ingredients in red around about 1 Kg.

The method remains essentially the same so and you can get detail on that by watching the video below but obviously replace the ingredients used in the video with these:

Rusks sliced and spaced in a baking dish ready for drying in a low heat oven

    Thku Ann . Sounds lovely. Could one halve the recipe?

    I would like to use HEBA which is a new revolutionary low carb mix of coconut flour, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, psyllium husks ,Himalayan salt and Xanthan gum

    So will try 125g rolled Oates, 25g oat Bran,150g almond flour, 200g Heba plus all your other ingredients
