Our Keto story
How it all started
Before we began our Keto diet/lifestyle journey, we made and sold Cinnamon Glazed Bavarian Nuts (yes, with lots of sugar). Not only did we love them but lots of people did too. We decided for health reasons to stop eating sugar and go low carb. We both were on blood pressure meds and wanted to avoid high cholesterol meds. We decided on the Ketogenic diet because it made the most sense to us, we liked the foods and the mental and physical benefits of it.
Well, we now had a problem! We didn't feel comfortable making and selling a product that we would not eat ourselves because of the health problems associated with sugar. So, we began experimenting with a praline product to replace our Cinnamon Glazed Nuts and eventually replaced them on our Etsy website. Then we began making sugar free peanut butter cookies for ourselves and other yummy cookies and decided that if we were going to make them for ourselves, why not offer them to our praline customers. So that's how Keto Cottage all began!
We already were raising our own free range chickens for the healthy eggs we would get and now all of our products with eggs have the freshest, healthiest eggs around! Quality is very important to us so we use only the best ingredients that we can find. We have been in business since 2016.
Our baked goods are made with a no sugar Erythritol/Stevia blend that we mix ourselves. We find that it works and tastes the best.
We both love canning and preserving foods. The one thing that we really wanted to replace in our diet was sweet jam and all of the store bought sugar free jams just tasted terrible. We experimented and succeeded in making the tastiest fresh fruit berry jam that has no sugar and is ketogenic! We even use a special pectin that is all natural and vegan.
We are always testing new recipes to bring you the best products that we can. It has become a labor of love!
The rest of the story is that we both feel great, have lost weight, have mental clarity like never before, been able to get off of blood pressure medications and avoid high cholesterol medication altogether. Plus we get to enjoy all of the yummy treats that we share with you!
Thank you so much for your patronage! We take care of our customers!
