Ideally, your keto diet comprises mostly animal proteins, low-carb vegetables, and healthy fats—but sometimes you have a sweet tooth that needs satisfying. Or maybe you’re going to a birthday party, graduation picnic, or other celebration, and you want to bring a treat that won’t derail your low-carb way of eating. That’s where these keto desserts come in.
Typical desserts made with flour and sugar are off the menu for keto dieters due to their usually sky-high carbohydrate content. These 15 keto dessert recipes are made with keto-friendly ingredients—nut flours, coconut products, and low-carb, keto-approved sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia—that keep them low-carb and also Primal-approved. (Allulose and sugar alcohols are other acceptable sweeteners that you can sub into these recipes.)
