35 Nature-Inspired Recipes for Keto Baking With Stevia

Keto Mini Pecan Pies Recipe

Stevia, which is a sugar substitute derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana, is a lifesaver for those of us who love sweets but want to stick to a Keto diet.

Naturally low in carbohydrates, stevia is roughly 200% sweeter than traditional sugar, which means you need to adapt your proportion in any traditional baking recipe when you use it.

We’ve put together our favorite recipes featuring this natural sweetener, from delicious cookie recipes like chocolate chip, ginger spice, and snickerdoodles to showstopper desserts like mini pecan pies, chocolate lava cakes, and even donut holes!

Many of these recipes are both Keto and Paleo-friendly, so they’re great to use no matter which diet you’re on.

Here are just a few of the Keto Baking With Stevia we’ve included:

Keto Baking with Stevia – Cookies & Brownies

Keto Almond Flour Cookies with Lemon Zest

– Keto Summit

Keto Almond Flour Cookies with Lemon Zest

Ingredients: almond meal, egg, ghee, stevia, vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon extract, baking soda.

If like me you miss a cookie with your coffee mid-afternoon, you might find this recipe interesting. These lovely keto cookies are crunchy and crumbly with a wonderful citrus kick from the lemon zest. I have tested this recipe with orange zest and it works well too so you can experiment with flavors. When you take these out of the oven, don’t be surprised if they are soft – they will crisp up as they cool down.

Keto Ginger Coconut Cookies

– Keto Summit

Keto Ginger Coconut Cookies

Ingredients: almond meal, coconut flour, coconut flakes, egg, ghee, stevia, vanilla extract, ginger powder, baking soda.

Ginger cookies are a family favorite in our house and we always have some at Christmas time when friends and family come over. These keto cookies have a shortbread look to them and taste wonderfully crumbly and delicious and the ginger gives them a flavor boost. So if you fancy a ginger cookie, why not get the youngest members of the family to give you a hand, then you can all enjoy the results!

Sugar-Free Ginger Spice Cookies

– Paleo Flourish

Sugar-Free Ginger Spice Cookies Recipe

Ingredients: whole almonds, chia seeds, coconut oil, egg, ginger, cinnamon powder, nutmeg, stevia, salt.

Sometimes you just have to have a ginger cookie with your tea or coffee so why not try these great sugar-free ones! The ginger and cinnamon give you a lovely warming flavor and these are sweet enough to satisfy without being loaded with refined sugars. If you don’t like stevia you could try using honey or maple syrup instead if you tolerate it.

Snickerdoodles

Ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil or butter, egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, liquid stevia, almond milk, cinnamon.

This amazing recipe gives you snickerdoodle cookies that even have the traditional cracked edges you expect from the regular cinnamon cookies, but this is a low carb grain and gluten-free alternative to let you enjoy the flavor but keep things keto! You will also find that cooking these tasty treats will fill your kitchen with wonderful aromas!

Keto Cinnamon Butter Cookies

– Keto Size Me

Ingredients: almond meal/flour, salted butter, egg, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, liquid stevia.

If you like a tasty, crumbly cookie you are going to love these low carb cinnamon cookies! This is an easy recipe to make and would be a good way to get the kids involved with baking healthy snacks. If you are using these as a gift or for a pot-luck contribution you can make them look even better by dipping them in a chocolate glaze, but these taste amazing just the way they are.

Low-Carb Sugar-Free Cranberry Walnut Cookies (Contains Dairy)

– Very Well Fit

Ingredients: almond meal, whey protein powder, butter, cream cheese, eggs, liquid stevia, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, chopped walnuts, whole cranberries (fresh or frozen).

Here is another great low carb and gluten free cookie recipe that would be perfect to make for Christmas time. They are crisp on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle, with the cranberries like little jewels throughout the mixture and the nutty bites of walnut. These cookies are low in carbs and reasonably low in calories, so they could be used as a special treat on a weight loss plan.

Fat Bomb Sea Salted Chocolate Brownies

– Wicked Stuffed

Ingredients: avocado, eggs, butter, unsweetened baker’s chocolate, almond flour, Perfect Keto’s Chocolate MCT Oil Powder, stevia, cocoa powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, vanilla, sea salt.

If you are one of the few people who has never tried salt and chocolate together, now is your chance! The combination of flavors is amazing and the sea salt gives a bit of sparkle to the top of these fantastic keto brownies. As with all the recipes that involve dairy products, these should be served as a treat and not as a regular feature!

– Ditch The Carbs

Ingredients: butter, granulated stevia, unsweetened cocoa powder, eggs, vanilla, unsweetened desiccated/shredded coconut, almond meal/flour, baking powder, berries of choice.

This recipe gives you brownies with more of a cake texture, but with hidden bursts of juice from the berries, which is amazing! The ideal ones to use are blueberries, but feel free to use others. If you want a low carb dessert without the fruit you could use chocolate chips instead and this gives you little-hidden pockets of chocolate flavor throughout the brownie.

Easy Keto Brownies

– Wholesome Yum

Ingredients: almond butter, eggs, cocoa powder, erythritol, coconut flour, sea salt.

The brownies in this recipe are slightly denser than some, giving them a fudgy texture which is extra yummy! Don’t be tempted to cook these for too long as they will continue to set as they cool. I often find that healthier brownies are a great way to treat the family as they don’t realize that what they are eating is actually keto!

Cauliflower Brownies (Contains Dairy)

Bet you never thought you could use cauliflower in brownies! These are soft and fudgy and because of the cinnamon and cocoa powder, they do not taste much of cauliflower at all. They do have a slightly grainy texture but they taste delicious as a keto treat. Not only are these brownies low in carbs but they don’t have a high-calorie count so could be used on a weight loss program too.

Keto Baking with Stevia – Cakes & Pies

Keto Mini Pecan Pies

– Keto Summit

Keto Mini Pecan Pies Recipe

Let’s face it, everyone loves pecan pies, especially at holiday time, but when you are eating the keto way you might have to miss out unless you use one of these great recipes. The little pies in this keto recipe are individual servings which can help with your portion control but still let you enjoy the wonderful sweet flavor of the pie along with your non-keto friends.

It can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to find a healthier cake for celebrations and birthdays if you are keeping things low-carb and keto, so this recipe is perfect for your next birthday cake.

Lava cakes can be a great way to impress your dinner guests as they will get the surprise when they cut into them and the lava oozes onto the plate! This recipe gives you a wonderful keto lava cake that is rich in chocolate flavor but still low in carbs and gluten-free. If you prefer your cake to be slightly less runny in the middle, just add on a couple of minutes to the cooking time and you will have more of a brownie texture.

Cinnamon rolls can be a lovely warming start to the day for a satisfying breakfast or eaten as a low carb snack mid-afternoon to keep you going till dinner, but either way, this recipe can fit your needs quickly, as they take just a couple of minutes to get ready. These have a strong cinnamon flavor, so feel free to tone it down if you prefer a hint of cinnamon instead.

Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Slice (Contains Dairy)

The dessert in this recipe is a layered cheesecake slice which would be impressive served for dessert at a dinner party. It is low in carbohydrates but has all the richness and flavor of a regular chocolate cheesecake. This recipe gives a thick crust but if you prefer it to be a bit more delicate, simply halve the recipe. As a change from the creamy topping, you could decorate the cake with fresh berries.

Chocolate Keto Birthday Cake with Vanilla Buttercream

– Perfect Keto

Ingredients: stevia sweetened dark chocolate, coconut cream, eggs, liquid stevia, cacao powder, almond flour, baking soda, salt, Kerry gold butter, Perfect Keto Vanilla Collagen MCT or MCT powder, cacao nibs.

I have always struggled making healthy celebration cakes for the family so I was so pleased to find this chocolate cake recipe that is low in carbs but full of healthy fats. This is an unctuous chocolate cake with tasty vanilla frosting that will make the perfect birthday cake for any chocolate lover! Because you are cooking this in a loaf pan, it can be a good idea to line it with parchment to ease removal.

Keto Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake

– Traditional Cooking School

Ingredients: almond flour, beef collagen, coconut flour, poppyseeds, salt, baking powder, baking soda, palm shortening, erythritol + stevia blend, full fat coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice, lemon zest.

Bundt cakes can look so pretty served whole on a platter on your dinner table and this lemon poppy seed one is so good to look at and to eat! This is a grain and sugar-free recipe that can let you still enjoy the flavor of cake without causing dietary issues. If you don’t have poppy seeds you can just omit them and enjoy this as a delicious lemon cake instead.

Low Carb Lemon Ricotta Cake (Contains Dairy)

– Yummy Inspirations

Ingredients: ricotta, eggs, stevia, lemon zest, lemon juice.

Although this cake looks as if it has a crust, the recipe involves no flour at all, making this a great gluten-free dessert that is really low in carbs and keto-friendly. The ricotta gives the cake a smooth and creamy texture while the lemon adds a lovely citrus zing. If you like things really lemon flavored, you can use the juice from a whole lemon, but the taste can be varied to suit your palate.

Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Cake (Contains Dairy)

– Diethood

Ingredients: unsalted butter, unsweetened baking chocolate, heavy cream, vanilla extract, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond flour, salt, eggs, stevia baking blend, water.

Sometimes chocolate fudge cakes can be so dense and heavy that they feel like they weigh a ton and can cause bloating issues, but not this amazing keto version! It is light and fluffy but still fudgy in the middle and is low in carbs to make it fit with your lifestyle. This dessert should be a treat, not an everyday dish, so next time you have a celebration meal you can serve this with a little-whipped cream!

Japanese Cotton Cheesecake (Contains Dairy)

Ingredients: eggs, cream cheese, almond flour, baking powder, stevia powder, blackberries.

Cotton cheesecakes are traditionally made using a soufflé or meringue method to make them super light and fluffy, and this keto version is so tasty and light that you could serve it at the end of any dinner. It is a good idea to sieve the flour before making this and it is worth the effort! This delicious dessert can then be served with a berry compote or some fresh berries for garnish.

Keto Baking with Stevia – Donuts & Scones

Keto Cinnamon Donut Holes

– Keto Summit

Keto Cinnamon Donut Holes Recipe

Ingredients: almond flour, stevia, egg, ghee, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger powder.

If you have a slight problem with portion control (like me!) then bite-size donut holes can be a good way to regulate this. These ones have a lovely warming cinnamon and ginger hit and are not too sweet, making them ideal to eat with a good cup of coffee. If you wanted, you could also glaze these little keto beauties and serve them next time friends come round.

Keto Donuts (Contains Dairy)

– Mark’s Daily Apple

Ingredients: almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, unsalted butter, heavy cream, vanilla extract, liquid stevia.

Donuts are one of those snacks that you can really miss when your diet doesn’t allow, so now we can have a keto alternative that will still satisfy the donut desire! They have quite a light texture so be careful when folding the ingredients that you don’t knock too much of the air out as this will cause the donuts to be dense. Because of all the dairy used here, these should definitely be used as a special treat!

Low Carb Toasted Coconut Donuts

– How To This and That

Ingredients: eggs, butter, vanilla extract, Pyure stevia blend, coconut or almond flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, almond milk, unsweetened coconut, Sukrin Fiber Syrup.

I have found that a lot of people who are new to keto expect the alternatives to taste exactly like regular treats, but they don’t! They do still taste great and these donuts are a great example of how good they can be. With a fantastic caramel and toasted coconut topping, these treats are so tasty that they will satisfy any sweet tooth. These donuts can be batch cooked and frozen.

Keto Double Chocolate Doughnuts

– Carb Manager

Ingredients: salted butter, vanilla extract, organic stevia blend by Pyure, cocoa powder, almond flour, flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder, egg, coconut oil, 85% cocoa dark chocolate, applesauce.

I often find that making treats into mini ones can be a great way to regulate overeating, and with this recipe for keto chocolate doughnuts, you get two mini rings per serving, which seems like a bonus! It is a good idea to purchase a special doughnut tray for these as it saves on any problems with shaping them. Once the rings are cooled you can top with chocolate for extra decadence!

Keto Coconut Mocha Donuts

– Keto Size Me

Ingredients: coconut flour, eggs, coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, liquid stevia, unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk, instant coffee granules, baking powder, baking soda.

Before eating keto I was a regular coffee and donut person, and now I can make these keto alternatives and still enjoy it! With the added coffee powder and cocoa, these donuts have a lovely mocha flavor that you can enjoy now and then when you have friends over for coffee. This recipe just goes to show that low carb doesn’t mean boring!

Protein Donuts

– Stay Snatched

Ingredients: coconut flour, protein powder, almond milk, stevia, egg, unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, sprinkles.

Whether you want to have these delicious donuts for breakfast or to serve them with a few fresh berries as dessert, I am sure you will enjoy their cake-like texture and vanilla flavor. Because of the protein powder in this keto recipe, you will find that there is enough protein in these to keep you going through the morning, although you can omit it if you have an issue with protein levels.

Sugar Free Donuts | Cinnabon Donut Holes!

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: coconut oil, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, eggs, olive oil, water, liquid stevia, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, baking powder, vanilla extract, pink salt.

The donut holes in this recipe taste even more like regular ones because they are deep fried, but they are still healthier because they are sugar-free. They have a lovely light texture and are flavored with cinnamon and ginger, two of the flavors we associate with winter. There is a recipe for cream cheese frosting here too, but you can use whatever is your favorite or leave them plain.

Raspberry Scones

– Keto Resource

Ingredients: almond flour, eggs, stevia, vanilla extract, baking powder, raspberries.

As with most scone recipes, these keto ones are supposed to look quite rustic once they are cooked so this is a great recipe for new bakers or those of us who are not too confident in the kitchen. They have a light and spongy center and a slightly crunchy outside with the raspberries adding fruity bursts as you bite in. You can use different berries depending on what you have.

Oil-Free Blueberry Streusel Scones

– Healthful Pursuit

Ingredients: almond flour, baking powder, ground stevia leaf, salt, fresh blueberries, egg, almond milk, slivered almonds, ground cinnamon.

These amazing keto scones have a lovely crunch from the cinnamon almonds and pockets of fruity flavor from the blueberries, but they are grain and gluten free and do not use any refined sugars. The scones are sweetened with stevia leaf which can cause a bit of an aftertaste, but these taste delicious! Serve with a nice cup of tea for an afternoon treat.
