Keto Ham and Cheese Bites

Two of my biggest struggles is finding good keto snacks and breakfast items. It’s not easy to find something quick to eat that doesn’t have tons of carbs. I just want something quick that I can grab and know that it won’t break my macros.

These ham and cheese bites are just 3 net grams of carbs each. You can make them quickly for an easy snack or make a bunch at a time and put them in the refrigerator to grab when you need it.

See which foods are keto-friendly.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Egg – Large, cage-free eggs
  • Ham – Sliced ham is fine to use but be sure to check for added sugar or carbs (ie no honey-roasted ham)
  • Cheddar cheese – Use medium or mild cheese that you shred yourself so it doesn’t contain any extra additives
  • Almond flour – Blanched fine almond flour is the best choice.
  • Cream cheese – It’s best if the cream cheese is softened, so set it out at least 10 minutes before you mix up the dough.
  • Baking powder – Check the expiration date of your powder. It can stop working well when it’s older than 6 months.

I use almond flour from WholesomeYum, which you can buy directly through that link (it’s our affiliate link). It’s the best almond flour I’ve found. It’s a blanched finely ground almond flour with a great texture and flavor, with just 2 grams or net carbs per serving.

How to Make Keto Ham and Cheese Bites

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl until a dough forms. Refrigerate the dough for 10 minutes so it can firm up and get cold. This will help it bake better.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper so the bites don’t stick.

When the dough is chilled, form 9 small balls and place them on the baking sheet, spread out a little bit. Bake them for 15 minutes, or until the top is starting to look a little browned.

Take them out of the oven and let them rest for about 5 minutes before eating. They will need this resting time to firm up a bit, so they can be handled without crumbling.

Variations To Try

I personally love the combo of ham and cheese, so these bites are my favorite, but you can try different combinations if you like. Some that I really like are:

  • Cheese and bell pepper or mushroom
  • Monterey Jack cheese and diced green chilis
  • Swiss cheese and green onion
  • Bacon or sausage and cheese

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can they be stored?

You can keep these bites for up to 5 days in the refrigerator or for 2-3 months in the freezer. They make a great snack to grab, so you can keep a bag of them in the fridge or pull a few out of the freezer whenever you want. Reheat them in the oven for 5-10 minutes or in the air fryer on 400 degrees F for 5-6 minutes.

Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

Not in this recipe, no. The coconut flour has too much of a sweet coconut flavor to be good in this recipe. I suggest sticking with almond flour.

Are both cheese and ham keto friendly?

Yes, both of these foods are keto friendly. Cheese is a healthy fat that is great for a keto diet. Ham is a good protein that is low in fat and easy to add to your recipes. Just make sure you don’t buy ham that has added sugar, like honey-roasted ham.
