There is no doubt that the keto diet is *the* diet of 2019. It seems like everyone and their mom has tried it. And if you’re one of those people with a sweet tooth, you probably (quickly) realized that your usual sweet, sugary treats are off the table. But I’m here to tell you that keto desserts are possible. We want to show you how.
Are Keto Desserts Possible?
Let’s be honest. The lack of sugar in anyone’s diet is a good thing. Sugar just isn’t that great for anyone. Like at all.
But that doesn’t mean we have to abandon all sweets completely. There are ways to continue to enjoy treats without throwing yourself completely out of ketosis. You’ve just got to know where to look for them and what you need to make them happen.
The Keto Diet
The purpose of the keto diet is prompt your body to enter ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state in which the body becomes better at burning fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
You do this by eating a diet that is high in dietary fat, low in carbohydrates, and moderate in protein.
Usually, ketosis requires that we don’t eat more than 25-35 grams of carbs per day. That means it’s pretty important for us to be tracking what we eat and checking the ketones in our blood to ensure that we are actually in ketosis to reap the benefits.
So, for us be indulge in keto desserts, we need to make sure the carb count is pretty low. These ones included in this post are all going to be under 10g carbs/serving. (We’re counting net carbs – so total carbs – fiber = net carbs).
You just need to ensure that you’re staying within your carb range for the day if you’re going to eat these.
Cool? Cool. Without further ado, here are some of our very favorite keto-friendly desserts.

You would never be able to guess that these brownies are low carb and keto-friendly. They taste just as delicious as the Betty Crocker ones from my childhood – and they are just as warm and gooey when they come from the oven. With 17g of total carbs, and 15g of fiber, these brownies only have 2g worth of net carbs.
