Keto Desserts

Two weeks ago, when I was squeezing myself into a pair of jeans, I happened to catch a glance in the mirror. I notice my skin looked rather blah and I had tell-tale rashes on my hands and arms from all the nuts I had been eating while making the book.  Of course, I also saw that my pants looked stretched and unhappy from the abuse I was trying to foster on them. Sigh. My name is Kelly and I have a sweet tooth.

I decided then and there it was time to go back to my low carb ways and banish my keg permanently.  I have been slowly lowering my carb intake each week (no way in heck I’m going to deal with that low carb flu nastiness) and holy smokes my energy level has been through the roof. I’m actually exercising because if I don’t, I feel like a wound-up toy.

Again, you saw my earlier declaration and I just can not imagine my life without sweets. Seriously, not going to happen. Anyhow, I searched high and low for paleo Keto desserts that didn’t have a ton of weirdo ingredients in them and found these 18 to keep me happy as I start this new journey.

I am the same as you, Kelly— I can't get enough of sweets! However, my husband and I are trying to both get healthier together, so we're trying to get more healthy alternatives. I'll be sure to keep these recipes around, but I don't think I have the time to make them! Maybe I'd be better off finding a paleo dessert to buy instead of make.

Thanks for sharing some great dessert ideas, I can't wait to try the coconut oil candies!

Could you please share the recipe for the Creamy Coco-Nutty Coffee Latte, when I click on the link it says it isn't found. I tried to search for it on Pinterest as well and got the same results the pics come up but when you click to see the full recipe it's not found.

Hi there!

I, too, am in the middle of a bodily reminder that I have not been eating what my body needs. I've been having nuts (craving them, actually! whew, must reevaluate where I'm getting my mag/fats/manganese), and more grains than I have in the past 3 months....just oats and white rice (I have autoimmune issues like whoa, so white rice is actually more of a gut-friendly option for me than brown/hull-in-tact rice options).

Anyway. You said you're slowly weening yourself back into low-carb. May I ask how you're going about this -what you're "cutting out" each day or week, etc.? Low-carb isn't great for some, but for me, I know my body needs it and thrives in that environment. But I can't afford the low-carb flu!!! I know we share that same dread haha. Any thoughts, suggestions or tips?

Thanks! Sorry for the verbose comment....I also haven't gotten rid of my morning cup of black coffee, obviously ;P

Hi Rachel :) Well, I stopped eating all nuts and seeds since I have issues with them. Then I basically just started eating half the amount of carbs each day - sweet potato, plantains, etc. I kinda had a "relapse" as I was working on a brownie recipe but I'm back on track. I will never be under 20g of carbs a day and will shoot to be between 50 - 80g :)
