Low Carb Bread and Pastry Alternative
Snacking season is fully underway and, if you’re anything like us, you’re reaching for the delicious carb-heavy goodies. And there’s nothing wrong with this. But, if you want to cut the carbs and still enjoy these treats, Lo-Dough is the perfect ingredient for healthy, low-calorie snacks. Per base it contains just 39 calories and a little over 2g carbs. Got more of a sweet tooth? Not to worry. With our pre-prepared brownie mix, you only need to add water and bake and you get 9 chocolatey brownies for just 4.1g carbs and 65 calories each.
Tear-and-share Sausage Rolls (4g carbs each)
Everything you love about sausage rolls, packaged up in a perfect, snack-sized bite. We have said tear-and-share but will be impressed if you do!
Jalapeno Poppers (5g carbs)
Check out our super simple recipe for low-calorie cheese-stuffed peppers coated in our Southern Style Coating. Ours are baked in a hot oven in around 10 minutes and will be crispy and delicious without being greasy or fatty.
Quiche Lorraine (2.3g carbs per quarter)
You can’t have a picnic without a quiche, right? Our take on the classic Quiche Lorraine swaps out the calorific pastry for a 39 calorie Lo-Dough base. This not only helps reduce the calories and fat but also reduces carbs by up to 90%.
Southern Style Hot Wings (6g per 4 wings plus dip)
Our take on the hot wing is a thing of beauty. Marinated wings, baked until tender, then coated in more hot sauce, breaded and baked until crispy. These wings are perfect low carb finger food, and thanks to the baking method, they are low calories.
Onion Rings (6g carbs per 5 rings)
Onion rings aren’t your classic healthy snack as they are usually deep-fried in oil and come with calorific coating. These are very different. By making yours with our Southern style coating, you can keep all the delicious flavour of this classic side while reducing the carbs and getting a healthy fibre kick.
Keto Breaded Brie Bites (1g carbs each)
In our eyes, hot cheese is always a good idea. We’ve taken it up a level and made it even more delicious with a crunchy, low carb breaded coating.
54 Calorie Cracker Bread (2.2g carbs)
This cracker bread takes a matter of minutes in the microwave and helps provide you with ⅓ of your recommended daily fibre. serve with some low sugar salsa, hummus, or another dip of your choosing for the perfect savoury snack.
Salt and Pepper Breaded Prawns (4g carbs per 6 prawns)
Unlike other coatings, our Southern style coating is gluten free, low carb and works perfect with your meat, seafood, veg, or cheese of choice. Try these with some low sugar sweet chilli sauce and you won’t be disappointed!
Low Carb Nachos (20g carbs per half)
Having an alfresco fakeaway or games night? These nachos are the perfect centrepiece. Simply slice up your Lo-Dough base into triangles, oil, season, bake, and you’re left with awesome low carb and low calorie nachos. We topped ours with veggie chilli, sour cream and plenty of cheese!
Lo-Dough fritters make for a super-light, low-calorie, low-carb, high-fibre meal. Cheesy, garlicky slightly spicy and with the fresh taste of the courgette and herbs (feel free to pick your favourites), they are a vegetarian delight that can be enjoyed both hot and cold.
Keto Halloumi Fries (4g carbs)
These incredible halloumi fries are a crispy-coated delight, made for dipping, sharing and out and out enjoying. Ready in under 30 minutes, they are so easy to make as well. We've baked them in the hottest possible oven and served ours with a yoghurt and harissa dip.
