Low-Carb Almond Coconut Sandies (Keto, Gluten-Free)

This is a slightly sweet cookie with a texture that reminds me of a pecan sandy. It is a perfect dessert for those on a low-carb or keto diet. For best taste, refrigerate before serving.

4-Ingredient Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

Kids will love these scrumptious low-carb keto cookies; all you need is peanut butter, vanilla extract, an egg, and some sugar substitute.

Keto Peanut Butter Fudge Fat Bomb

Rating: 4.57 stars
This is a great keto dessert with only 3 ingredients. If you want you can sweeten it with stevia or other sweeteners, but the peanut butter is sweet enough.

French Chocolate Mousse with Orange

Rating: 4.31 stars
A traditional chocolate mousse with a hint of orange flavor. This luxurious dairy-free and low-carb mousse is made simply with eggs and chocolate. Omit the orange zest for a plain chocolate mousse.

Quick Keto Chocolate Mousse

Rating: 4.79 stars
When a sweet craving hits, you'll have this chocolate mousse ready in no time. No need to pre-whip the heavy cream - just throw everything into a bowl and mix! Use any keto-friendly granular sweetener that measures like sugar. I prefer the powdered version of Swerve®, since it dissolves better. Adjust cocoa powder and sweetener amounts to suit your tastes. This is quite rich, so you don't need a lot to feel satisfied.

Pumpkin Pie Spice I

Rating: 4.74 stars
Use this mixture in recipes that call for pumpkin pie spice. A blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice that can be scaled to any size.

Low-Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Low-carb cheesecake bars with few ingredients. They taste like the inside of a pumpkin pie!

Rosettes I

Rating: 4.73 stars
Cook this on a rosette iron, then sprinkle with sugar.

Mini Meringues

Rating: 4.21 stars
These crunchy dainties are great with coffee or with cream for dessert. And they're low fat! Substitute 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules or 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa for the vanilla if you like. Coffee kisses are great sandwiched together with melted white or dark chocolate. Spooned vanilla ones are good with cream and chocolate ones are good as finger biscuits with coffee.

Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake with Almond Pecan Crust

Rating: 4.43 stars
This recipe is a yummy and rich-tasting cross between my decades-old cheesecake recipe and pumpkin pie, converted to be low-carb. I also use low-fat cream cheese to reduce the amount of fat. It's wonderful for Thanksgiving, or just for fun anytime. Unless you tell people it's low-carb, they'll never guess!
