Cookies, Candies, and Puddings, Oh My! - 45 Low-Carb Desserts

Last week I shared with you a huge list of 35 low-carb snacks.  So many of those are either favorites of ours, or are on the list to be made soon!  This week, I have an even bigger list of low-carb desserts, with all of them also being vegan desserts (or having vegan options).

I am not a vegan, but my son has life-threatening food allergies, so we typically don't use egg or dairy when making dishes--hence the "vegan" focus.  Interestingly enough, these are all paleo desserts too.  I know - paleo and vegan don't typically seem to go together, but in my home they sure do :).

As I mentioned in my post of low-carb snacks, we have been eating more and more low carb for several reasons, one of them being candida, and another is that we are simply eating fewer grains for gut health and overall health.  However, I am not opposed to carbs.  In fact, I think they are important as long as they are good carbs and not out of proportion.

I'll be sharing more about that later, but just wanted to get that out there so folks know where I stand.  I do think we are doing better without a bunch of carbs, but do many people are turning up research and information about thyroid and adrenal health as it relates to carbs and I think it's worth looking at.

In any case, typically desserts are full of refined sugar, refined flours, and more unsavories.  Several of these recipes have sweeteners that aren't low carb.  If you would like, substitute stevia or xylitol, or erythritol or your sweetener of choice to make them lower carb.

Oh, and if you notice, this post is devoid of frozen desserts.  If you're an ice cream lover like me and that's what you're looking for, this post of Low Carb Ice Creams will be exactly what you are looking for!

  1. My pleasure. So happy I found your site, Arman! Welcome to the U.S., by the way. I have relatives in Australia. I so hope you enjoy the curry if you try it. It’s a big favorite here, but I guess you noticed that :)!

  2. Looking forward to trying some new yummy sugar free desserts. Just one quick question regarding Stevia. I've been looking over your recipes the past few days and noticed you've talked about a variety of different brands of Stevia, is there one particular brand you recommend over any others at this point? I've tried a few and am still having a bit of difficulty adapting to recipes. Thanks.

    1. I haven’t found a favorite yet – it kind of went to the back burner since I have been really busy. Some have been just horrible. There are 2 more I am interested in that seem promising. I am buying one from Amazon soon and the other I have a sample of here. This is the one I have a sample of and this is the one I am going to buy. Those are both affiliate links. Sorry it’s taken me so long.

  3. Yum and double YYUUMM!! I'm so excited to have a whole bunch of new desserts to try! Thanks so much for including mine in this roundup, too. 😀 xo

  4. Thank you so much for sharing- It means a tonne! Ps- That Pakistani Beef curry has my name on it 😉
