From fat bombs, to mug cakes, to cheesecake and chocolate mousse...these 10 low carb and Keto Desserts are quick and delicious treats, require minimal ingredients, and are perfect for any occasion.
Sweets and treats are hard to come by in the low carb world, unless you make your own. Luckily we have low carb bloggers out there that do all of that baking science for us so we can have some yummy low carb sweets! I have compiled this list of 10 Keto Desserts that I think look absolutely delicious. I hope you agree and you give them a try!
ALMOND FLOUR FOR GLUTEN FREE KETO TREATS
One of the most used flours in keto baking is almond flour. This is essentially ground almonds and it is primarily what I use in my keto dessert recipes.
Almond flour is expensive, but I can usually find it at wholesale stores for a better deal. If you do not have a wholesale store near you, you can find almond flour at almost any grocery store or it can be purchased on Amazon.
You can also make your own almond flour using my tutorial here: How to make almond flour
You will find there are different types of almond flour such as finely ground and blanched. I usually go for finely ground as it has the best texture.
Even though almond flour is more expensive than coconut flour...it is much less temperamental and yields more consistent results, especially if it is weighed with a food scale as opposed to using measuring cups.
HOW CAN I REPLACE ALMOND FLOUR FOR NUT FREE KETO BAKING?
I have been experimenting with my low carb treats and I have discovered sunflower seed flour! This is essentially ground up sunflower seeds and it measures just like almond flour.
Any of the recipes can use sunflower seed flour to replace the almond flour.
Coconut flour is probably the second most popular flour to use in baked goods as it is also nut free. It is coconut flesh that has been dehydrated and ground. It is actually the flesh that is leftover from making coconut milk.
I have a few recipes using coconut flour but it is temperamental because it is so absorbent.
It has it's advantages, though, as it is much less expensive than almond flour and you use much less.
SUGAR FREE SWEETENERS FOR LOW CARB DESSERTS
My favorite keto sweeteners for keto desserts are Swerve and Lakanto.
Swerve is a brand that is made with a combination of erythritol and stevia plus their own proprietary flavorings. It is a 1 for 1 substitute for sugar, unlike pure stevia. It makes very tasty keto baked goods and it is found at Walmart, Whole Foods, or Amazon. They make a granulated version, powdered, and brown sugar.
Lakanto is another version I really like (dare I say more than Swerve) but it can only be found online. It is made with Monk fruit and is also a 1 for 1 substitute for sugar and comes in granular, powdered, and brown sugar varieties.
I prefer the taste of the Lakanto as it has less of a cooling effect. I think it is the closest to sugar as you can get at the moment.
CREAM CHEESE, GREEK YOGURT, BUTTER, AND HEAVY CREAM
Almost all keto desserts need a liquid and that's where these all fall in. I know you're probably thinking..."Jennifer, greek yogurt isn't keto!" But, did you know it actually has less carbs than sour cream? I have been using it in my baked goods lately and it makes them so fluffy like in my Almond Flour Muffins!
