There are lots of easy keto snacks–think avocado, beef jerky, nuts, and pork rinds–but you don’t just want any old keto snack; you want to satisfy your sweet tooth. Yes, you can have sweet snacks on keto to kick those cravings to the curb without kicking your blood sugar around! These days you can find plenty of keto-friendly snacks that bring flavor without the sugar. Here are some ideas–and recipes–to get you started.

Satisfyingly Sweet Keto Snacks That Will Keep You in Ketosis

1. Whipped Cream

Sugar-free whipped cream complements keto fruits like strawberries and blueberries. It’s also super quick and easy to scoop berries and whipped cream in a bowl. You can buy whipped cream in a spray can at the grocery store, just make sure it’s real cream and isn’t sweetened. 

2. Cookie Dough Balls

These grab-and-go keto cookie dough balls only require 7 ingredients and 8 minutes of prep time. Stevia, sugar-free syrup, sugar-free chocolate chips, almond flour, and almond butter combine to make a deliciously sweet flavor and a doughy texture.

3. Dessert Chaffles

Conjure up these low-carb dessert chaffles with eggs, cheese, coconut flour, cinnamon, and erythritol. All you need is 15 minutes to make this delicious waffley snack! Pair your chaffles with keto ice cream for an extra special treat.

4. Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding might remind you of indulging in your favorite comfort foods when you were a kid. This keto chocolate pudding is so smooth, creamy, and sweet that you’ll question if it’s truly keto! To make it you’ll need nut butter, almond milk, keto sweeteners, and chocolate and vanilla extracts. Level up and garnish with mint and berries. 

Or enjoy this keto raspberry chia seed pudding if you’re a fan of red raspberries. Prepare your pudding in advance, so your snack is ready to go when the hunger and cravings strike. If you’re a fan of pumpkin, you might want to try this low-carb pumpkin mousse topped with nuts. 

5. Gummy Bears

Of course, traditional sugar-loaded gummy bears are a no-no on keto, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to gummies completely. Replace sugary gummies with these 10-minute low-carb gummies made with sugar-free jello, unflavored gelatin, flavor enhancers (such as strawberry pineapple), and water! Yes, it’s that simple. 

6. Keto Cereal and Granola

When a bag of nuts and berries won’t cut it, prepare a keto cereal or granola in advance. This keto granola recipe requires 40 minutes and 8 ingredients, but it’s rewarding, tastes like candy, and makes a great breakfast or snack!

While most cereal isn’t anywhere near keto-friendly, our talented recipe creators here at Ketogenic.com don’t disappoint. Check out this 20-minute keto cereal made with pork rinds, shredded coconut, almonds, and cashews and sweetened with stevia and sugar-free syrup.

You might also enjoy a keto acai bowl for a sweet snack. The coconut cream, acai pulp, and coconut milk result in a satiating sweet snack with a smooth texture and a burst of flavor.

7. Chocolate and Snack Bars

Just because you’re following a ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the delight of sinking your teeth into a chocolate bar. With well over 20 grams of sugar in the average Hershey’s chocolate bar, you’ll have to find an alternative, like this 35-minute keto-friendly milk chocolate bar. Store your chocolate bar in the fridge for a sweet snack later. 

Or devour one of these low-carb chocolatey recipes:

You can also find commercially available keto-approved chocolate and snack bars, such as Quest Nutrition bars or ChocZero bars. When buying packaged keto snacks, it’s always a good idea to take a close look at the nutrition facts and serving size and to test your ketones and/or blood sugar before and after eating a serving.

8. Fat Bombs

Fat bombs are aptly named because they’re like little captivating high-fat explosions of sweetness and flavor in your mouth. Fat bombs can help you hit your macros and crush cravings and hunger with their filling fats. Try these keto peanut butter fat bombs with a smooth and creamy inside and a slightly crunchy and salty exterior. The best part is they’re only around 2g of net carbs per serving.

9. Marshmallows

You don’t have to be sitting around a campfire to enjoy marshmallows. Ditch the corn syrup and sugar and welcome your childlike side with keto marshmallows!

10. Peanut Butter Cups

Reese’s peanut butter cups are a classic, and if you’re like us, you crave them regularly. These keto peanut butter cups are a deliciously suitable alternative that will keep you in ketosis.

11. Smoothies

Grabbing a smoothie from your fridge is nutritious, flavorful, and convenient, but traditional smoothies are high in sugar. Try a keto smoothie recipe from Ketogenic.com: 

12. Cinnamon Toast

Traditional bread won’t work on keto, but keto-friendly alternatives are available. If you make your keto bread beforehand, it only takes 7 minutes to transform it into cinnamon toast! Add some butter or nut butter and top with berries for even more flavor. 

13. Candied Nuts

Candied nuts are sweet, salty, and savory all at once! Enjoy these candied walnuts or candied pecans sweetened with allulose and keto sweeteners. Or for a sweet and satisfying high-protein snack, chow down on candied bacon!

14. Cookies

Cookies are always a good go-to when you want a snack. Choose from these keto cookie recipes:

15. Yogurt

Many yogurts on the grocery store shelves are packed with sugar and will impede ketosis. Still, you can choose from low-carb options, like our very own Dr. Ryan Lowery’s favorite protein-packed keto yogurt recipe. Top yours with your preferred ingredients, such as berries, nuts, or keto granola.

16. Bark

Bark-type candy, like chocolate bark and peppermint bark, may spur memories of your childhood vacations or special holidays. But bark makes a great sweet snack anytime! Try a bark recipe from Ketogenic.com:
