Keto-Friendly Chocolate Desserts

The ketogenic diet (more commonly called the keto diet) is a low-carb eating plan. The keto diet is high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbs.
While the keto diet limits sugar and carbs, you don’t have to give up desserts entirely ― or chocolate, for that matter. With a few tweaks and ingredient substitutes, you can have your chocolate fix and stay on plan.
These decadent chocolate keto desserts are rich and satisfying. This ultimate list of low-carb desserts proves that with the right recipe, you can satisfy a sugar craving while sticking to your macros.
Common Ingredients in Keto Chocolate Desserts
These cakes, cookies, ice creams, and brownies are made with keto-friendly ingredients like butter, cocoa, sugar substitutes, and flour substitutes.
Almond Flour is a common keto substitute for traditional wheat flour. Look for a blanched almond flour with a super-fine texture for best results. I like Bob’s Red Mill or Anthony’s brand almond flour.
Coconut Flour is another useful low-carb baking ingredients. Coconut flour is made from ground and dried coconut meat. Because it’s so high fiber and absorbent, a little bit of coconut flour goes a long way
Sweetener. I tend to stick with erythritol based sweetener like Swerve. But you may want to experiment with other sweeteners like xylitol or allulose. (Remember that allulose is less sweet than erythritol, so you’ll need to use more if you are substituting it in a recipe. )
Cocoa Powder. In order to make delicious keto chocolate desserts, you have to start with delicious cocoa powder. I prefer to use Dutch-processed cocoa powder in most recipes. (Dutch cocoa powder is a cocoa powder that’s been alkalized to make it less acidic and give it a mellower flavor.)
Chocolate Chips. A lot of the following recipes call for chocolate chips. My favorite brand of keto chocolate is Lily’s, which you can find on Amazon or your local grocery.
