- 18 Best Keto Desserts [Easy Low-Carb Ideas]
Who said dieting had to be boring? The keto diet is the perfect example of one that can be exciting and enjoyable while still helping you to lose weight! However, due to the dramatic reduction in carbohydrates allowed on the keto diet, you lose many traditional dessert options as most of them have too many carbs to maintain ketosis.
But we have some good news for you! In this article, we have compiled several different dessert recipes that promise the rich, sweet satisfaction of desserts with none of the sugar! By substituting artificial sweeteners for sugar and offering natural, low-carb options to bring in the flavors you love, you can enjoy dishes like chocolate mousse and cheesecake bites without risking blowing your diet. Let’s get into it.
Coconut Flour Apple Pie Bites
A keto-friendly spin on the classic American dessert, these mini coconut flour apple pies replicate everything we love about the original, all stuffed into bite-size form.
For the dough, we add erythritol (a dry sweetener) and nutmeg to the mix to give it those unkistakable hints of sweet and spice. We then fill the casings with freshly reduced applesauce and bake for just 20 minutes.
