How to make keto cucumber bites

Print this recipe
If you’re anything like me, you struggle to keep your ketogenic lunches—especially when you have to make them for the office—interesting and satisfying. The recipe below is one of my favorites. It’s perfect for making the night before and packing for a workday lunch.
Since these are made into little “bites” they make ideal finger food. They’re great for taking outside to a park bench if you have the luxury of being outdoors, or if you don’t, munching right at your desk while you tackle your emails. For a bit of extra crunch, sprinkle some chopped toasted almonds or walnuts over the tops.
