As you may have noticed, I often use two ingredients in most baked goods: cream of tartar and baking soda. Cream of tartar, also known as potassium bitartrate, is produced during the fermentation of grape juice. A combination of these two ingredients acts as leavening agent: the magic happens when you mix alkaline baking soda with acidic cream of tartar. The mixture is activated once you add liquid ingredients such as water, eggs, ghee or coconut milk. The carbon dioxide produced creates bubbles that cause the dough to expand and it raises when baked. Remember: once you add liquids, you have to put the dough in the oven as soon as you can or it may not rise properly.

Instructions

Mix the baking soda and cream of tartar in a glass jar or an airtight container. I bought mine in bulk on Amazon but you can find both ingredients in most grocery stores. Secure the jar with a lid and shake until well combined. Store in a dry, cool place. Use as needed just like baking powder - that's it!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

What is the difference between regular baking power and gluten free baking powder?  Can I just use the regular baking power for keto?  Thanks😊

Gluten-free baking powder does not contain flour that is used so it doesn't clump up. Even gluten-free baking powder often contains starches for the same reason. That's why I prefer using a combination of the active ingredients without the fillers (just baking soda and cream of tartar).

it makes me sad that you think baking powder is keto friendly...

This one is - I'm not sure why you would think otherwise 😊
