My Low Carb Keto BLT Bites
I’ve been on a ketogenic diet for like forever, and let me tell you, choosing a low carb snack (especially for Filipinos like me who cannot live without meryenda or #KetoBaon) is not always easy.
When you first start out, it seems like everything you eat is either high in carbs or sugar.
But with a little creativity and some handy dandy low-carb snacks, it’s actually pretty easy to stick to your diet!
Along with baked avocado fries, one of my favorite go-to keto snacks is the classic BLT bite.

Bacon is a great low carb option for adding some delicious flavor to your keto snacks. It is also full of protein and contains fats that help keep you feeling full and satisfied.
English cucumber is a great low carb vegetable to use for your keto snacks, as well. It is full of water and fiber, which can help stave off hunger pangs when you’re trying to stick to your diet. Additionally, the healthy oils in English cucumbers are great for helping reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Mayonnaise is a key ingredient here, as it provides the perfect creamy base for the avocado and tomato toppings. It makes a great addition to any keto snack recipe because it is packed with healthy fats while being low in carbs. Plus, it adds some creamy richness that takes these BLT bites over the top!
Finally, tomatoes add some bright flavor and texture to these delicious keto snacks. They are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and lycopene.
Together, these ingredients make for a delicious keto snack that is convenient, easy to prepare, and perfect for those on the go.
- You can substitute bacon with turkey bacon, ground beef or another low-carb meat of your choice.
- You can substitute mayonnaise with japanese mayo or sour cream. It depends on your preferences and dietary restrictions.
- You can also try using other low-carb vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, or broccoli in place of English cucumbers.
- You can substitute avocado with any lower carb vegetable or fruit such as bell pepper, or squash or even pineapple (if you’re doing dirty keto) depending on your personal preference.
All of these substitutions will help keep this recipe low-carb and keto-friendly while still maintaining the delicious flavor profile that you love.
- 6 slices bacon
- 1 English cucumber, sliced
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 large avocado, sliced
- 1-2 tomatoes, sliced and cut into portions to fit cucumber slices

To cook the bacon, begin by placing the slices in a single layer on a cold, large skillet. Then heat it over medium heat. Once heated, cook the bacon until it is cooked through and crispy; this will take 10-12 minutes. Make sure to flip it occasionally so that both sides. Cook evenly.
As bacon slices finish cooking, remove from heat and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, cut the cucumber into 12 slices at an angle. By the way, I love using this chef knife with ergonomic handle from Imarku.
Slice avocado and tomato as well.
Once the bacon has cooled, cut it into smaller strips.
Assemble BLT bites by spreading each cucumber slice with ½ teaspoon of mayonnaise.
Add a few pieced of bacon and avocado slices. Add avocado slices.
