Banting Quiches

Banting quiches are somewhat of a contradiction, I’d say! The best part of a quiche, for me, is in the buttery, cheesy crust. Yes, the filling is important too, but what gives the quiche substance, is the crust that keeps it altogether.

The banting quiches that I have made so far, were disappointing, because the crusts were disappointing. Some banters choose to not make a crust at all, but somehow that idea does not sit well with me. I have made a delicious banting quiches, like this Biltong Quiche, but although the crust was delicious and nutty, it was not buttery enough.

Well, my banting quiches have just been pimped, upgraded and revamped, because I found this delicious crust recipe and I think this is the one I will use in future. It is fuss-free, quick and yes……. buttery!

Banting Quiches

Banting quiches with Bacon and Blue Cheese

makes 12 mini quiches


For the crust

125 ml melted butter

2 eggs

5 ml curry powder

200 ml coconut flour

3 ml salt


Pour the melted butter into  a mixing bowl and add the eggs, salt and curry powder and mix well. Add the coconut flour and mix until you have a workable dough. Divide the dough into 12 balls. Spray a muffin pan with Spray ‘n Cook and place a dough ball in each muffin hole. Use your thumb to press the dough to make a casing for the quiche  halfway up the muffin hole.

For the filling

2 x 150 g Fairview Full Fat Yogurt

4 eggs

250 ml cream

250 ml grated cheese

50 g Fairview Blue Tower

5 ml smoked parika

3 ml salt

3 ml black pepper

200 g streak bacon – fried until crispy and chopped finely


Mix the eggs, yogurt, salt, pepper and cream together. I like to do it in a jug, it makes pouring easier. Now, take about a teaspoon of the grated cheese and place in every muffin casing. Crumble a little blue cheese on top of the cheddar cheese in each hole. Now pour the egg mixture into each muffin hole. Lastly top with some crispy fried bacon bits and a sprinkling of smoked paprika.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the quiches are soft but firm to the touch. Remove from the muffin pan and cool.

    I had never heard of banting until I visited South Africa 2 weeks ago, funny how it is so big there. I do agree with you that the crust to a quiche is very important. We here in France would die at the idea of a crustless quiche. Your version sounds great. I love quiches and have several posts on my blog. You should try the duck confit quiche, it is delicious (although not banting)

      O ja , en kan ek dit as een groter quiche bak? Hoe lank?

      • nerinatimm 11 March 2016 at 2:58 pm #

        O ja, beslis! Bak vor so 30 minute, dan voel jy in die middel, die vulsel moet ferm, maar nog steeds sag wees.

    I had never heard of banting I got to RSA 2 weeks ago. Here, we use all the good old fashioned foods, no restrictions:)
    Can’t wait to try it though.

      Hi Nadia, Yes Banting is certainly the buzz word. My daughter lost not only a lot of weight, but also her sinus and lethargy by cutting all sugar and carbs. Let me know how you found the recipe. 2 cups full fat yogurt is perfect.

    This is very easy to cook recipe and looks very yummy, actually I am planning to prepare it but confused about cheese because I dont have blue cheese, so can I use normal cheese to make this.

    • nerinatimm 18 March 2016 at 10:29 am #

      You can use grated Parmesan cheese or even goats cheese!

    These banting quiches were so easy to make and you totally sold me with those gorgeous photos. My son absolutely loved it and it allowed us to spend time together so it was a win win. Thanks for sharing this.
