If you’re on the keto diet and headed to Costco, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be updating this Keto Costco shopping list about every month or so as Costco gets in new keto-friendly foods.

Lastly, we will strive to try to focus on the items that Costco seems to have on a consistent basis at multiple locations. We will also take keto food items off this list and add others as Costco’s inventory changes over time.

You can save money by buying your keto food in bulk at Costco
Keto is getting more and more popular and Costco is getting ahead of the game by offering additional keto-friendly products to meet demand. Here are a few pictures of some items that we recently purchased while shopping for keto at Costco:
Keto friendly bread
Keto bread has been like searching for Bigfoot for me. I have heard about it and seen pictures of it, but never been able to find it. I finally found it at Costo and immediately snapped up a couple loaves. I always read the ingredients when I see something labeled as “keto-friendly” because a lot of times it’s not really a keto approved food. With zero added sugar and zero net carbs, it looks keto approved to me.
I will provide you a list of ingredients, but I did see modified wheat starch and wheat gluten. I am not sure how they modified it, but if you are avoiding gluten, this bread is not for you. It looks like it’s high in fiber (12 grams) so the 12 grams of carbohydrates are in a non-digestible form.
I made some toast with it and tried it with some keto friendly peanut butter. It was actually really good that way. I also made french toast with it. The keto friendly french toast was a little dry however. On a positive note, with 12 grams of fiber and the inclusion of the prebiotic fiber inulin, it might help prevent keto constipation.
Keto friendly bread ingredients:
- Modified wheat starch
- Wheat gluten
- Oat fiber
- Wheat protein isolate
- Soybean oil
- Calcium propionate (preservative)
- Ascorbic acid
Kirkland Peanut Butter
There is a debate in the keto community whether peanut butter is allowed on the keto diet. I’ll let you be the judge of that. I will tell you however, that Kirkland brand peanut butter doesn’t have any added sugar and it’s pretty tasty.
Organic ground flaxseeds and Macadamia nut milk
This massive bag of flaxseeds was an awesome low carb find at Costco. One of the healthiest keto superfoods that you can consume. Two tablespoons contain 3 grams of carbohydrates, but since it’s all-fiber it’s actually zero net carbs.
One of the best preventions for constipation on the keto diet is mixing up 2 tablespoons of milled flaxseeds in with 8 ounces of macadamia nut milk. The nutritional content of that combination is 10 grams of healthy fats, 3 grams of protein and zero net carbs. This is a very keto-friendly, economical Costco purchase.
Keto Snack Mix from Natures Garden
These keto snacks I recently found at Costco are pretty delicious. Macadamia nuts, pecans, pepitas (pumpkin seeds without the hull), almonds and cheese balls.
The addition of probiotics makes these interesting. Maintaining a healthy gut microbiome can give your immune system a boost to help fight infections.
Keto Ice Cream Bars
These keto ice cream bars are new at Costco. The Ketopint Website has them at $8.49 a box and they’re only 4 of them per box. 2 grams of net carbs make them pretty keto friendly however. They contain chicory root which is a prebiotic fiber that helps the digestive system. Here are the ingredients:
- Whole Milk
- Salted Caramel Base
- Sea Salt
- Natural Caramel Flavor
- Annatto Extract
- Organic Xanthan Gum
- Egg Yolk
- Non-GMO Chicory Root Fiber
- Milk Protein Concentrate
- Monk Fruit Extract
- Stevia Extract
- Non-GMO Tapioca Fiber
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Non-GMO Guar Gum
- Non-GMO Gum Acacia
Low carb Macadamia Nuts
You can find the best keto-friendly nuts at Costco and if you buy them in bulk, you can save some money. Macadamia nuts, in particular, were recently added to this best keto superfood on earth list. I am going to look for walnuts and pecans on my next Costco keto shopping haul, so stay tuned.
Hungry for spaghetti or pasta?
Only 1 net carb per 4 ounces serving, these noodles are a good keto-friendly noodle alternative. The only challenge will be finding a low carb-sugar free sauce to go with it.
Replace your tortillas, wraps, buns, bread and taco shells
These low carb wraps were a good find at Costco. They are a little thin and taste a little “eggy” but they make a nice burrito or tortilla wrap. With zero carbohydrates you really can’t beat them.
These crunchy salty mushrooms are utterly delicious!
If you love mushrooms, are on the ketogenic diet and shop at Costco you absolutely have to look for these. Salty and crunchy with a hearty mushroom taste. I recommend taking a handful out of the bag and putting the bag out of reach or there could be a danger of you eating the entire bag in one sitting.
If Costco quit selling Prime Beef I would reconsider my Costco membership, it’s one of the perks that I really appreciate. It is also one of the ways Costco separates itself from Sams Club. You can’t get prime beef at Sams Club. Prime Beef is amazing and paying a little extra is worth it. You can read about how the USDA grades beef here.
The image above is a Prime New York Strip Steak. It was good, but honestly, I would recommend going with the Ribeye Steak. Ribeye is a little more expensive, but it’s substantially better. Ribeye is a little fattier, but when shopping at Costco while on keto your not concerned about the extra fat anyway.
Being able to eat steak on the keto diet is one of the reasons keto is the best diet for long term success in my opinion.
Heavy whipping cream and Lakanto artificial sweetener
The cream is a low carb keto staple and tastes great in some keto coffee. Use it in multiple recipes. It works great to cook with butter, bacon, and vegetables. The Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener also has erythritol (sugar alcohol) in it.
Bacon is another keto staple and getting it at Costco in bulk will help you save money. Ditto with the cream cheese, especially if you like an occasional keto fat bomb. You can find almost everything you need at Costco to make delicious Keto Chaffles. Here is an excellent Keto Chaffle Recipe.
Buy coffee in bulk at Costco to make keto coffee or as some like to call it bulletproof coffee. The Folgers (coffee) and the sugar-free cacao are a great value.
If you can buy free-range eggs at Costco in bulk there is no reason why you can’t try a keto egg fast.
Chia seeds help prevent and remedy keto constipation
Butter is another keto staple found at Costco
I cook with it, use it for fat bombs and put it in my coffee. Kerrygold Irish butter is one of the best butter to use on a keto diet because the cows are grass-fed. Butter is a healthy fat and eating healthy fats on keto is important to reduce inflammation.
Cauliflower rice is so convenient to add to any keto meal
You can use it to make your own cauliflower crust pizza. DO NOT buy the pre-made (frozen) Costco cauliflower crust pizzas. They are gluten-free, but not keto-friendly.
The only place that I know of that has a pre-made keto-friendly pizza crust is at Blaze Pizza.
You can take the Orgain Collagen Peptides off your Costco keto shopping list. It looks like that brand is being discontinued. That’s a shame too because it was a great value. As soon as Costco has a low-cost collagen alternative I will add it to this list. So check back next often.
Apple cider vinegar is one of the ingredients in my keto flu tonic and avocados are well, avocados. They are one of the healthiest keto foods available. When explaining the keto diet I always stress the importance of avoiding the keto flu.
Frozen broccoli florets are super convenient on keto. Just pull some out of the freezer and microwave them to thaw them out. Cook them up in a pan with butter, heavy whipping cream, garlic, bacon and serve it as a side dish.
Frozen vegetables in general are a great low cost keto food you can purchase at Costco. Pull them out of the freezer, thaw them out in the microwave and fry them up with bacon and heavy whipping cream.
Free-range, grass-fed Gouda Cheese from Holland
Costco has a boat-load of keto friendly cheeses. I love the mini babybel cheese, mozzarella and the Brie cheese, but my favorite is probably the Aged Gouda. You can read here about why Gouda Cheese is one of the healthiest keto superfoods you could eat.
