I make snickerdoodles twice a year, once for Christmas and once for my sister’s birthday. There is something incredibly homey and comforting about these cookies. Going Keto doesn’t mean giving up on the flavors you love. Case in point, our Keto snickerdoodles. These cookies have the same crispy cinnamon “sugar” crust you know and love and a familiar soft cakey center. Best of all, the won’t knock you out of ketosis. That’s right, these snickerdoodles are sugar and grain free! Plus, they only have 1-gram net carbs. So, whether you’re cooking for your sister, your friends, or your neighborhood, you can feel good about sharing these cookies with everyone you know.
Are you looking for a snack that is light but craveable? A snack that’s sweet and sour, and of course, Keto-friendly? Look no further than these MCT Keto Lime Mint Gummy Bears! You might have thought that homemade gummy bears were difficult or messy to make but the process is as easy as making ice cubes. You simply prepare the liquid, dissolve the gelatin and sweetener, pour into molds, and chill until set. These gummies are multi-layered with lime and mint for a fresh tropical flavor. The MCT powder is optional but it adds a great boost to these gummies, making them perfect for a quick energy boost between meals.
Some people really love coconut cream pie. Like, looooove it. If you’re one of them, you may be frustrated that it isn’t Keto. Not even a little.
Stop getting upset at your dietary restrictions and start making this Keto coconut cream pie recipe. It’s got a little something that’s super handy for Keto and good for you too!
Why give up chocolate cake just because you’re on Keto? It may come as a surprise that chocolate is a Keto-friendly ingredient, but it really is – you just need to make sure it’s the right kind you’re using.
Sorry – the common milk chocolate is nowhere near Keto… A good rule of thumb would be; the darker, the better. I try to stick with 80-90% dark chocolate, and always the sugar-free/unsweetened kind. It’s perfect for baking but I have to admit, I do enjoy a piece with a cup of coffee, occasionally!
While I wouldn’t recommend having chocolate cake every day of the week (especially if you’re on Keto to lose weight), it’s important that you get to enjoy your favorite dessert every now and then. I also love the fact that I can serve chocolate cake when my friends come over – it’s always hard for them to believe it’s “diet cake”!
Even though you should choose sugar-free chocolate, it doesn’t mean your Keto chocolate cake has to taste bland. There are various sweeteners that are ok to use on Keto; here’s a great article to help you choose the right kind.
I’ve included various different types of chocolate cakes on this list, to make sure there’s something for everyone and every occasion. Dairy-free or even flourless is not a problem! And if you’re in a hurry, why not try a chocolate mug cake. It’s ready in minutes!
You don’t need much baking experience or a lot of time to create a delicious, chocolaty Keto dessert. This video is a great example of that (feel free to omit the topping, if you want to make it dairy-free) :
