If you’re following a low carb diet and you’d like to stick with the diet to see results, there are some low carb desserts recipes you can make. It’s completely possible to avoid all the excess carbs while eating something so sweet and delicious as a treat after your main meal. In fact, many of these recipes are simple to follow and the results are tasty.
Low Carb Cookies
Cookies may be one of your favorite desserts. They’re easy to grab on the go because you can just put a few in a bag and then eat them while you’re on your way out. However, most cookies contain lots of carbs. If you want to eat cookies without the guilt of consuming too many carbs, you should follow this simple chocolate chip recipe.
- 2/3 cups hazelnut flour
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon almond flour
- 1 cup artificial sweetener
- 1 tablespoon hazelnut spread
- 1 cup miniature chocolate chip morsels
- 1 cup applesauce
Start by blending your hazelnut flour, sweetener, shredded coconut, almond flour, and chocolate chip morsels together for a minute. Throw your cup of apple sauce and tablespoon of hazelnut spread into the bowl and mix again for another minute. Once your ingredients are blended and slightly wet, use an ice cream scoop to scoop out miniature servings of the dough and place those serving on a baking sheet. Put your baking sheet in the oven and cook on 350 degrees F for at least 20-30 minutes or until they’re as crispy and chewy as you’d like them.
Fluffy Banana Pudding
If you’re looking for something on the softer side with a consistency that’s similar to cheesecake and pies, this is the recipe for you. It’s low in carbs and it’s simple to make because you only need to purchase a few ingredients ahead of time.
- 1 box banana instant pudding
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup sliced or diced banana
- 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chip morsels
Add your instant pudding into a large bowl followed by the whipping cream. Whip these two ingredients together at a fast rate of speed for several minutes at a time to turn the mixture into a thick and tasty treat. Once you’ve blended everything, throw in your slices of banana and your chocolate chip morsels, mixing lightly for another minute or two. You can serve it right then and there or put it in the fridge and wait for it to get cold before eating it.
Even if you’re following a low carb diet, you can still treat yourself to tasty desserts from time to time.
