You’re living your keto lifestyle, and everything is going great until your sweet tooth starts whispering in your ear. “You know you want a cookie.” You should have some chocolate.” Your palms begin to sweat because you know this low carb, high fat diet doesn’t make room for sugar or flour.
What should you do?
Pinterest is a great place for you to head to and find countless easy keto recipes. There are numerous sugar free and low carb recipes. It was the first place I went when I knew I couldn’t continue on the keto diet without my chocolate chip cookies and cakes.
Sometimes in life you have to kiss a whole bunch of frogs to find your prince. Pinterest keto recipes are no different. I’ve done a lot of the heavy lifting for you.

Here’s my list of the top 5 keto dessert recipes on Pinterest. This list isn’t in a ranking order.
1. Fudgy Keto Brownies
These almond flour brownies are decadent, fudgy and chocolaty. The recipe is quick and uses ingredients that should be readily available in your kitchen except maybe the magic ingredient.
I’ve learned that the key to get your desserts, made with almond flour, to have the chewy consistency that you love is beef gelatin. It is a game changer, which you will see in other recipes.
I make these brownies whenever I am in the need for chocolate, particularly at certain times of the month!
15 minutes of prep and 20 minutes of bake time before you’re enjoying these fudgy warm brownies. The best part is they’re only 1.2 net carbs per serving. Let’s all say thank you to All Day I Dream about Food.
2. Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies (Almond Flour)
Sticking with the almond flour theme, these cookies are absolute winners, coming in at only 2g of net carbs per serving.
The recipe is from Low Carb with Jennifer. It does require 3 cups of almond flour, which is almost an entire bag for me, but is totally worth it. I get 12-14 cookies from the batch depending on how I shape them.
I do tweak the recipe just a bit by adding in the magic ingredient of beef gelatin. I add 1 tablespoon in with the dry ingredients.
Also the recipe calls for ¾ cup of butter or coconut oil. I actually use both. I use ½ cup of coconut oil and ¼ cup of my grass fed butter. These cookies are constantly in my cookie jar at home.
I even posted about it on my Instagram feed. I’ve served these cookies to family and friends not living the keto life, and they can’t believe that they are sugar free.

3. Keto Chewy Chocolate Chips (Coconut Flour)
I know what you’re thinking. Not another chocolate chip cookie!
Yes another cookie. I love cookies, but this one is on the list because it is a coconut flour cookie.
This was my go to cookie for the first part of my low carb journey. Early on, I had determined that I didn’t like almond flour baked goods (It turns out I just wasn’t using good almond flour. I’ll talk about that more in another post)
Peace, Love and Low Carb shared this recipe and the masses have spoken. It has over 122k repins on Pinterest.
This recipe uses only erythritol unlike our other two which use Swerve Confectioners. In truth the two can be interchanged quite easily. Although I prefer the confectioners, as it guarantees that I don’t have granules in my cookies. If you prefer coconut flour or have nut allergies then these cookies are the ones to try, and at only .9g net carbs per serving you can have your cookies and eat them too!
4. Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake
This cheesecake recipe comes from the pair at KetoConnect. They have three quick and easy keto cheesecake recipes. This one is my favorite by far.
The cheesecake filling demands immediate licking. I have to read motivational quotes on self control before, I open my refrigerator to eat one of these.
With this recipe, you get the instructions and ingredients for making both the almond meal, chocolate crust and the cheesecake filling.
The filling is four simple ingredients, heavy whipping cream, sour cream, cream cheese and erythritol. Altogether this culinary treat is 3.5g net carbs per serving of keto heaven.
5. Peanut Butter Fluff Fat Bomb
Although fat bombs are a staple of the keto diet for numerous people, they have not been something I enjoy consuming. That was the case until the day these beauties showed up on my Pinterest feed.
Delectable isn’t even the word to describe these. I lick the bowl before I even get the fluff into the freezer to solidify. This is my favorite keto dessert with heavy whipping cream.
Here’s a bit of news for you. I don’t like peanut butter!
But I will eat this. It’s just that good. The recipe comes from Kasey Trenum.
The key to keeping the sugar and carbs low on this is to use natural peanut butter. I like Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter. It has no additional sugar just the peanuts and oil. Kasey tops off the fluff with Lily’s Chocolate Chips.
Please be advised: you may find yourself dreaming about this fluff, and it will be alright at only 2g net carbs per serving.
So there you have it. 5 of the best keto desserts recipes on Pinterest.
I would like to point out one ingredient that is a must have in your low carb, sugar free, dessert arsenal.
Lily’s Chocolate Chips.
At first glance they may be a bit pricey, but considering that they are made with swerve and can give you delicious melted chocolate in so many recipes, they are worth it. I go into panic mode whenever they are out of stock on Amazon.
Now I order multiple packs, just in case. Lily’s also makes chocolate bars, which I speak of fondly in my Keto Snacks post.
Be sure to save these pins to your boards and follow me on Pinterest to stay up to date with other great keto recipes that I have tried. Next time your sweet tooth calls answer it with one of these pins or maybe even all of them. I’m not judging!
