I love the year-end tradition of making a top ten list, so here are my picks for The Top Ten New Low-Carb and Keto Recipes of 2021! Did your favorite new Kalyn’s Kitchen recipe make the list?

Pin The Top Ten New Low-Carb and Keto Recipes of 2021!

The Top Ten Low-Carb and Keto Recipes of 2021 from Kalyn's Kitchen collage of featured recipes

Food Blogging has changed so much from the days when I first started sharing recipes on the web. But one blogging tradition I hope will never go away is the idea of sharing a year-end round-up of the best recipes of the year! So today I’m sharing my picks for The Top Ten New Low-Carb and Keto Recipes of 2021 from Kalyn’s Kitchen, and if you look at the lists from previous years at the end of this post, you can see that making year-end lists is something I’ve enjoyed doing for many years.

Some bloggers analyze their stats and pick out the new recipes that are most popular. But I prefer to feature my own favorites from the year; and I always have a hard time narrowing it down so there are a ten more honorable mention recipes after the top ten list as well! I know these last two years have been difficult ones for many people, and I hope that some of the recipes I’ve featured on this site have brought a little pleasure into your life during this time when most people are cooking more at home.

And Kalyn’s Kitchen had a facelift in 2021, with lots of new features including Filtered Recipe Search to make it easier to find a recipe when you’re staring into the fridge wondering what to make for dinner! If you haven’t tried out the Filtered Recipe Search yet, this post has good instructions for how to use it.

I hope everyone is getting ready to welcome the new year by making lots of healthy and delicious food! Thanks for visiting here and trying my recipes; the kind feedback I get from readers is definitely one of the things that keeps food blogging fun!
