What to look for in a good ready-made dessert?
In the ketogenic diet, it is better to try very hard to stay in ketosis rather than having some cheat meals and trying to get into the fat-burning process again and again. So, what we need to do is to cope with the hardships we face and complete the weight loss successfully.
When you are looking for a keto dessert, the first thing you should be looking for is the low carbs, of course. However, it does not mean that you will not feel the sweet taste. Conversely, thanks to the artificial sweeteners like Stevia, the sweetness will be like normal sugar.
Another thing is that you need to keep your macros balanced. For example, high-fat is a must even in desserts. So, check the nutrition facts before buying a pack of desserts. Peanut butter is a good way to balance the macros.
Lastly, whatever the dessert is, try not to eat more than one serving. Remember that you are on a diet and everything you eat comes with a certain level of calories. Do not eat keto desserts to suppress your craving, not to feel full.
#1 HighKey Keto Mini Cookies
HighKey produces very tasty keto products and our favorite is the Mini Cookies. There are three different flavors of these cookies: Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Brownie, and Snickerdoodle.
The first two of them have 2 grams of carbohydrate in their content while Snickerdoodle has only 1 gram which is perfect for keto. The total calorie count ranges from 140 to 150 for one serving so this is the only thing I would say excessive. The taste feels quite natural in all three of them. Baking keto-friendly brownies at home is a great thing but if you do not have them give this one a try. Yummy!
It is a gluten-free and grain-free product without any preservatives.
- Double Chocolate Brownie is the seventh heaven!
- Gluten-free and grain-free
- High calorie count
#2 Ketonia Coconut Macaroons
One of the things that I used to miss while on the keto used to be macaroons. As I am not a good cook myself, I was constantly craving for macaroons. Then, I found Ketonia’s Coconut Macaroons. It has less than a gram of carbs in it while having 11 grams of fats and 3 grams of protein. The coconut taste is quite lively and does not feel any artificial.
The reason why it tastes natural is the flour is made of almonds. You sweetly feel the taste of almonds. In one serving, there are just 120 calories, and compared to the first one, this is quite low.
You can also use it as a fat bomb choice thanks to its 11 grams of fat per serving.
- Good fat bomb replacement
- 120 calories
- Only coconut macaroons, no other flavors
#3 Quest Protein Cookies
Quest’s cookies are not exactly keto but it deserves a place as it is quite tasty. The reason it is not exactly keto is that it has more protein than it needs to be. However, if you need to get more protein to take 30 percent of the daily protein limit, Quest is a great choice.
There are 15 grams of protein and 17 grams of fat in it while having about 4 grams of carbs. One serving is one cookie and it weighs about 59 grams (2.08 oz). It is good for targeted keto dieters who have hard days of workouts. The taste is extraordinary, indeed.
The flavors are Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Chip, and Peanut Butter.
- Good flavors
- High on protein.
#4 Keto and Co Pancake & Waffle Mix
This could have ranked higher if we did not need to cook our pancakes and waffles. As its name suggests, it is only a mix which you need to prepare and cook. It is a great way to have pancakes in your breakfast. The sugar replacement is Wondrose, which is a combination of erythritol, monk fruit, and finer.
Very low on calories (50 grams per serving) and 4 grams per pancake is a good way to stay in ketosis. However, the fat count is quite low and you can enrich it with keto peanut butter. It takes a total of 2 minutes to prepare and cook the pancakes so apart from washing the dishes, it is not time-consuming at all.
- Low calorie count
- Easy to cook
- Low fat
#5 HighKey Keto Brownie Baking Mix
Another mix on our list is the HighKey Brownie Mix. This mix has only 2 grams of net carbs. In fact, the total carbs are 16 grams but 5 of those are fiber, 6 of those are artificial erythritol and 3 of them are allulose. So, you will actually take 2 grams of carbs after eating one brownie.
When prepared, there is a total of 12 grams of fat and it is a good way to balance your macros. To bake it, you just need to add eggs and butter and that is pretty much everything you need to do. The reason it ranks lower than the pancake mix is that you need to do more to prepare HighKey
- Low net carbs
- Tasty and fatty brownies
- More time consumption
#6 BisKeto Low Carb Cookies
BisKeto’s Cookies are a good way to fill your sweet cravings however; it does not have the best taste. I think the reason is that they use Stevia mainly as a sugar replacement. It leaves a weird feeling in the mouth after eating which I do not like.
The net carbs count is 2.5 grams while having 8 grams of fat and 2 grams of protein. When you buy one pack, you will have 2 cookies and these numbers are for 2 cookies. So, one serving equals two cookies.
The flavors are chocolate chip, coffee, and almond. My personal favorite is the almond one.
- Almond is quite tasty
- Low carb
- Non-desirable Stevia taste
