Ideally, your keto diet comprises mostly animal proteins, low-carb vegetables, and healthy fats—but sometimes you have a sweet tooth that needs satisfying. Or maybe you’re going to a birthday party, graduation picnic, or other celebration, and you want to bring a treat that won’t derail your low-carb way of eating. That’s where these keto desserts come in. Typical desserts made with flour and sugar are off the menu for keto dieters due to their usually sky-high carbohydrate content. These 15 keto dessert recipes are made with keto-friendly ingredients—nut flours, coconut products, and low-carb, keto-approved sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia—that keep them low-carb and also Primal-approved.

These macadamia nut cookie bars are our take on a classic blondie recipe. Blondies have more fun, right?
Blondie bars are similar to brownies, but instead of cocoa they feature vanilla and, usually, brown sugar.

Macadamia nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fats, and a quarter-cup of macadamias provides 77 percent of your daily manganese requirement and 28 percent of your copper. And don’t even get us started on their creamy texture, which makes these blondie cookie bars all the more decadent.
