Keto Cheetos

The Keto Cheetos are so much better than the real deal! They are light, crunchy, cheesy and super addictive – and easy to make.

They are so good, that I barely got a photo of them before we gobbled them down! Cheesy snacks like these Low Carb Cheetos are a favorite here at My Keto Kitchen.

This Keto Cheetos recipe makes 4 serves, the serving size will depend on how many cheetos you have piped. 1 serving ¼ of the total mix, which has less than 1g net carbs.

Store your Low Carb Cheetos in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 4 days (if they last that long!!). Note that if your cheetos are not completely dried and cool, they will soften and go stale overnight – they can be crisped up in the oven in 10-15 minutes.
