Sweet Keto Snacks to Buy or Recipes to Make Yourself

The ketogenic diet is all about cutting carbs and adding healthy fats in their place. Because of the severe drop in carbs also means a severe drop in sugar intake, most people assume that they can kiss dessert and sweet snacks goodbye on this low-carb diet. That's not necessarily the case. There are quite a few no-carb and low-carb sweeteners out there that can either be an ingredient in a keto recipe or a ready-made keto snack. 

We've scoured the internet to bring you our favorite sweet keto-friendly snacks. Some you'll grab for a quick bite, others need a little more prep, but all of them are delicious with just a handful of net carbs.
