The Best Keto Desserts all conveniently in one place! From classic chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, and fudgy brownies, there are hundreds of keto dessert recipes here that taste JUST like the real deal!
It’s no secret that with keto recipes, desserts are my absolute favorite.
I’ve always had a sweet tooth ever since I was a little kid. Even before I started following a keto diet, I would always be in the kitchen whipping up desserts. Whether it be gooey brownies, soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies, or a simple chocolate cake, you name it, I’d have made it.
Now, making keto friendly desserts can be quite a task. There is always the fear that it will not taste as good as their traditional counterparts, or sourcing low carb ingredients may be cumbersome.
Well, I’m here to prove to YOU that low carb desserts CAN and WILL taste just as good as any other dessert out there, if not better.
What is an easy keto dessert?
While there are plenty of keto desserts out there, one that everyone should have in their back pocket is a chocolate cake. If there is one dessert that is easy, delicious, and elegant in one, it’s cake. Here is how to make it.
- Almond flour- Blanched almond flour or superfine almond flour, not almond meal.
- Cocoa powder– Unsweetened and Dutch processed.
- Keto sugar substitute– Either a brown sugar substitute or erythritol. Do not use liquid sweeteners, as that will affect the texture of the cake.
- Baking powder– Leavening agent used to give the cake some rise and fluffiness.
- Eggs– Room temperature eggs.
- Butter– Measured in its melted state.
- Milk of choice– I used unsweetened almond milk, but any keto friendly milk will work.
- Vanilla extract– A must for any good dessert.
- Chocolate frosting– Homemade keto chocolate frosting.
Start by adding the dry ingredients in a small bowl and whisking together. Next, add the eggs, butter, milk, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and whisk together until fluffy and combined. Gently fold through the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Now, distribute the cake batter evenly amongst greased 9-inch pan and bake for 37-40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out mostly clean. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely before frosting it.
Storing and freezing instructions
- To store: Leftover desserts should be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to one week.
