We love desserts. A quick perusal of our blog shows that we don’t want anyone to miss out on the sweet stuff! Often, people give up sugar as a New Year’s resolution. We understand that. But these are all sweetened with non-caloric sweeteners. And, the only way we get through dark and dreary months is with treats occasionally.
During the winter, we are suckers for warm desserts. Cold desserts just don’t hit the spot in the same way. But warm desserts are almost invariably high in fat and carbs. Today, we’re getting cozy with warm desserts that won’t derail your health and blood sugar goals!
Kladdkaka looks like a misspelled word. But it’s Swedish for “sticky cake.” It’s the cake we’re featuring in our banner today! This chocolate cake is crunchy on the outside and has a gooey consistency on the inside. It’s almost a cross between a fudgy brownie and a lava cake, and it’s excellent on a chilly night. Just be sure not to overbake it, as it will dry out. A serving has 135 calories, 3.7 grams of carbs, 1.7 grams of fiber and 12.6 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
Mug cakes can be disappointing, especially if they don’t rise. Cakes made in the microwave are essentially steamed rather than baked. This has enough baking powder to get some height, and the ingredients work well to make a moist sponge. But don’t overcook it because it will become tough rather than dense! Peanut butter is always a welcome ingredient in our desserts. And a dessert ready in under seven minutes is perfect in our books! A serving has 185 calories, 9.1 grams of carbs, 4.6 grams of fiber and 11.7 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
Fruity desserts are amazing. We love the mix of sweet and sharp flavors! Berries have many healthy properties; we love incorporating them into our diet. The healthiest way to eat them is raw by themselves. But this delicious baked crisp is pretty great too! It’s excellent when you want something easy and homey on a cold night! A serving has 144 calories, 10 grams of carbs, six grams of fiber and 11 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
While smores are a delightful dessert, they usually require a campfire and contain an awful lot of sugar. This version uses sugar-free chocolate and keto marshmallows, and it features a low-carb crust, so it won’t upset your blood sugar. And they are made in the oven, so there is no need for a fire to enjoy them! They are best while still warm from the oven, as the marshmallow will be gooey, but the crust will be soft, so be sure to grab a fork. They aren’t a smore to eat with your hand! A serving has 181 calories, 12 grams of carbs, 8.7 grams of fiber and 15.9 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
We hope these four dessert recipes delight you! They will help warm up your cold evenings as we get through winter together!
