Keto-Friendly Almond Flour Dessert Recipes

The keto — short for ketogenic — diet is a popular option for those looking to better manage their blood sugar via the foods they eat. This diet, which involves obtaining most of your daily calories from fat and protein instead of carbs, can also be an effective way to “trigger your body to start burning stored fat,” according to the Mayo Clinic.

Like other ways of eating, the keto diet does involve restricting certain things; in this case, high-carb foods are off the menu, which means traditional sugar- and flour-based desserts are dishes you’ll want to avoid. Fortunately, there are some delicious workarounds thanks to almond flour and sugar substitutes, two low-carb ingredients that won’t spike your blood sugar or take your body out of ketosis. With just a few modifications, your favorite treats aren’t off the table at all — and we’ll show you how to get started with some easy recipes.
