Do you like 'banitsa'? And if it is healthy, and keto, and gluten-free?
A bunch of modern words can "decorate" our breakfast, but one thing is certain - the taste of the keto 'banitsa' is in no way inferior to the traditional one, and at the same time it does not contain pie crusts, wheat flour and oil !
What keto? Why keto?
The keto diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet. In addition to the keto pie, we also have recipes for delicious keto breads on our blog.
The pie is suitable for supporters of the keto diet, as it contains coconut and linseed flour. Both flours are consumed in this so-called lately regime, because they are low-carbohydrate. In addition, they do not contain gluten, which makes the pie suitable for people with gluten intolerance.
The keto 'banitsa' is extremely quick and easy to prepare, like all the recipes on the blog .
The ingredients are gradually added to a bowl, mixed, and the mixture is poured into a baking pan and baked - nothing complicated and time-consuming.
The pie contains eggs, cottage cheese, and cheese that make it extremely juicy, soft and tasty!
