  • 2 lbs pork loin chops (6 pork chops approx.)
  • 1 cup buttermilk, (if following whole 30 diet see notes below)
  • 1 cup almond flour/meal
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored whey protein isolate powder (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Parsley or cilantro for garnishing (optional)
  • Avocado and tomato salad to serve (optional)


  • Trim the fat from the pork chops, if necessary.
  • In a large bowl, cover the pork chops with the buttermilk and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Remove pork chops from fridge 30 minutes before you plan to make them.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil, or spray a large nonstick baking sheet lightly with oil.
  • Combine almond flour/meal, tapioca, salt, garlic, Italian seasoning, and parmesan, if using, in a large shallow bowl.
  • Grab a pork chop from the buttermilk, letting any excess milk runoff. Coat with crumb mixture, coating completely. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray a little more oil on top of the pork chops.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes, or until pork is done (145º F)


If you are following Whole 30 diet, make your own buttermilk: In a small bowl combine 1 cup of unsweetened PLAIN almond milk + 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Set aside for 2 minutes and let it thicken a little.
If you are NOT following the Keto diet you can substitute unflavored whey protein isolate powder for tapioca starch.
