Having a snack here and there can help you stick to your keto diet. Not only do keto snacks curb hunger pangs, so you don’t end up having cheat meals, but they can also boost your intake of important nutrients, like ketogenic fats, fiber, and vitamins.
And that even holds true if your choice of snacks involves all things sweet. Keto sweet snacks, like the ones you’ll see below, don’t have added sugar, and many are even good for you. The options on our keto snacks list below are also convenient (i.e., bite-sized and portable) to make your life easier. Here are 19 keto snacks for anyone with a sweet tooth.
Chocolate & PB Fat Bombs
Fat bombs are the ultimate keto snack, killing sweet tooth and hunger pangs in a couple of bites. These three-ingredient and dairy-free chocolate and peanut butter fat bombs are just like PB cups. They also provide a healthy dose of healthy fats as well as 9g of protein.
Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs
When it’s strawberry season, try these delicious fat bombs! Made with a combo of cream cheese, butter, gelatine, and strawberries, these fat bombs are bursting with summer flavor. You’ll love how refreshing they are and the generous number of servings you get from the recipe.
Keto Vanilla Mug Cake
We love mug cakes because they take the hassle out of homemade dessert making. If you never made one yourself, start with this basic vanilla mug cake. It takes only around five minutes to make with staple keto ingredients like almond flour, Greek yogurt, and butter. Great on its own or topped with sour cream.
Keto Faux Banana Muffins
Sweet cravings can attack anywhere. Make yourself prepared with portable keto-friendly snacks like these banana-free banana muffins. The recipe calls for banana flavor and zucchini in place of bananas, yielding a snack that’s pretty close to the real deal.
Keto PB Cookies
Another set of snacks to carry to work, school, or outings are keto-friendly peanut butter cookies. These take around 20 minutes to prepare with ingredients that are easy to find. They’re also loaded with flavor, protein, and fats to keep you satisfied.
Keto Mini Cheesecakes
These cheesecake bites are a true crowd pleaser! The recipe pairs a buttery almond flour crust with a cream cheese layer and strawberry jello topping. Besides being great for celebrations, these are great for sharing at the office, school, and picnics.
Keto Green Blondies
Or should we say “greenies?” Either way, these keto-friendly sweet treats are tasty, healthy, and fairly easy to make. You’ll need a couple of keto staples plus homemade sunflower seed butter. You’ll get 16 blondies to enjoy for days ahead.
Low-Carb Lemon Popsicles
Another three-ingredient, super-simple snack perfect for summer. All you need is some water, a couple of lemons, and your favorite sweetener — plus popsicle molds. But if you don’t own popsicle molds, use this recipe to make sorbet instead.
Three ingredients, four steps, five minutes are all you need to make keto fudge: keto snacking doesn’t get any simpler than this. The recipe yields 16 pieces, and you can refrigerate or freeze leftovers for weeks to months. Besides being low-carb, these sweet treats are also vegan.
Vegan & Keto Chocolate Pudding
Vegan, keto, and loaded with chocolate, this pudding ticks all the right boxes. It’s also super easy to prepare, taking around five minutes, requiring seven ingredients, and ready in two steps. And because this is loaded with ketogenic fats, you’ll enjoy this treat with no guilt.
Chocolate Fat Bombs
The best sweet treats on keto are loaded with chocolate like these fat bombs. A decadent chocolate coating around a shredded coconut filling, these are almost like Bounty bars — but without the extra carbs, of course.
Coconut Matcha Cake
If you like your keto-friendly snacks to provide added benefits, consider making this keto-friendly chocolate and matcha cake. Matcha provides brain-boosting antioxidants, and it gives this cheesecake a beautiful green hue.
Sugar-Free Frozen Yogurt
Normally, fro-yo is a guilty pleasure. But this sugar-free, keto-friendly version is different. It’s rich in protein, thanks to Greek yogurt and whey powder. It’s also a great source of energizing fat, fiber, and vitamin C.
Bulletproof Coffee Mug Cake
Is Bulletproof coffee not working for you? Do you need something more substantial, something that will really help you feel full in-between meals? Then try out this mug cake. Feel free to add a dash of MCT oil if you like for that Bulletproof experience.
Keto Pumpkin Pecan Bread
Quick bread of the sweet variety makes for some of the best snacks. This keto-friendly version of pumpkin bread is no different. What you’ll love about it is that it calls for only five ingredients and no nut flour!
Low-Carb Mini Pumpkin Pies
These are essentially your classic pumpkin pie, downsized and turned keto. Mini keto snacks like these are super convenient and super cute to boot! Plus, they make portion control a tad bit easier.
Are you over peanut butter cookies (to your own surprise)? Try to switch things up with these tahini cookies. They’re a bit more delicate in taste and texture compared to PB cookies. Adding a drizzle of chocolate makes them even better.
No-Bake Low-Carb Cheesecake
With summer approaching, you’ll want to have a couple of no-bake recipes like this one on hand. We believe cheesecake makes for a fantastic low-carb snack due to its protein count (a serving of this one has 6g).
The secret to perfect keto blondies is cacao butter — it adds richness to them like no other ingredient. You’ll get around two dozen blondies with this recipe, each being under 100 calories. Perfect low-carb treats when you want to watch your calories.
