3 Ingredients Keto Sweets

Written by: Maja Moors

When it comes to a keto diet, people tend to struggle the most with sweets. Desserts and bakery products are the hardest to execute in regular cooking, not only on keto, so don’t be discouraged when trying to make desserts. Takes time, practice, and many times, luck. When I started keto, I realized that there is a ton of recipes online, but when I started to try them, most of them ended up in the bin. Or the ratio was off, or it wasn’t good consistency, had a weird texture, or just lack of flavors. For most of the recipes, you would need a lot of ingredients, and the whole dessert would be usually time and money consuming. Most of the days, we all just have that sweet craving, but we don’t have time or many ingredients in the house or work to make it and we just need that easy, quick keto fix. I will give you here tips on how to overcome hunger, what you can buy and snack, and some very easy recipes, that can help you indulge your craving.

My favorite – Keto Macarons

 

Supermarkets

If you are in the store and you just need something keto sweet, you can use the following:

  • Dark chocolate – look for chocolate over 70%, usually, it is Lindt or my favorite Whittaker`s Ghana. Be aware that Lindt 95% has more carbs than 90%, so always check the label. In principle, every couverture chocolate over 70% should be low in carbs.
  • Nuts – yes, they are not sweet but snacking on them will help you overcome the hunger and when you have a chance, melt chocolate and pour over or dip nuts in it.
  • Coconut yogurt – natural sweetness and different flavor will help you get a quick fix, just watch how much you are consuming.
  • Berry- yes, you can have a handful of berries, but be aware of carb intake.

Think twice before buying “low-carb“ chocolate, protein bars, and snacks. They contain maltitol, sorbitol, polydextrose, and other nasty sugar replacements. They can not only kick you out of ketosis, but you can also get bloated, gassy, and have diarrhea. So those easy fixes can annul all your hard work.
