9 of the Yummiest Low Carb Desserts for Chocolate Lovers

If you have a sweet tooth you’re going to love these low carb desserts. Especially if you’re a chocoholic like me!

When you’re trying to eat a low carb or keto diet, your goal is to limit your daily intake of all carbs as much as possible – which includes sugar and natural sweeteners like honey, agave or maple syrup. It also means traditional flours are out too.

So how can you satisfy a sweet tooth that’s craving a rich chocolatey dessert? By substituting safe sweeteners such as Stevia, Truvia and monk fruit extract for sugar we can convince our tastebuds they’re getting the real deal.

In these recipes white or wheat flour is swapped out with almond, coconut and ground flax flours to keep the carbs low but the taste and crumb texture as close to a traditional bake taste as possible.

If you’ve been cooking gluten free or keto for a while, you’re used to substitutions to make up for the sugar and flour found in traditional baking. Fortunately most of these recipes give you great instructions on where to find good quality substitute ingredients and how to use them to get the best results.

So go ahead and satisfy your chocoholic cravings with these low carb, gluten free and sometimes ketogenic desserts!
