Low Carb Maple Mustard Green Beans Recipe

I love green beans, especially around the holidays. No Thanksgiving dinner is complete with them. This is an easy keto thanksgiving side dish that you can make for your holiday dinner or bring to a potluck. Green beans are coated in a sugar free maple syrup and two kinds of mustard. Then they are roasted until crisp, yet tender. The maple mustard coating is the perfect amount of sweet and tang. You’ll find that this keto side dish diappears fast! Make sure you get your share before it’s gone!

Keto Friendly Maple Syrup

Although traditional maple syrup is not keto friendly, there are low carb versions available that are. My favorite is by ChocZero. It contains no sugar, no sugar alcohols, and no stevia. It is sweetened with monk fruit so it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste or leave a cooling sensation in the mouth. I use their syrups a lot in my cooking and baking.

Are Green Beans Keto?

Green beans have a higher carb count that other green vegetables. If you eat them in moderation, they are still keto friendly. One cup of cooked green beans contains 10 grams of total carb and 6 net carbs.

We don’t eat them too often but around the holidays, it is necessary. I can’t have turkey without a side of green beans. Plus there are other nutritional benefits to green beans. They have lots of vitamin C and silcon (good for bone, skin and hair).

How to Trim Green Beans

To trim greens beans you can line up the stem side of the green bean and slice off the stems. You can also snap off the stem side one by one. The other end, you don’t need to remove. This side is tender and perfectly fine to eat.

Keto Approved Mustard

I like to use two different mustard in this recipe. The stone ground mustard provides flavor and I like the appearance of the ground mustard on the green beans. If you don’t have access to stone ground mustard, you can double the amount of dijon mustard in this keto green bean recipe.
