Are Croutons Keto?

You may be asking yourself “Can I eat croutons on keto?” Traditional croutons are made with bread and contain a high number of carbs.

We make our parmesan croutons keto-friendly by using almond flour, psyllium husk and egg whites instead of bread. They still taste amazing and are low in net carbs with the added benefit of extra fiber.
