As the ketogenic diet continues to increase in popularity, it's no wonder that we can now find more keto desserts to buy at the store! Now, because of this, you can treat yourself to something sweet without having to spend any extra time in the kitchen cooking or baking!
But, you may be wondering how to know exactly what products at the grocery store are actually low in carbs and keto-friendly. Well, we have that all sorted out for you! In this list, you'll find the most highly recommended keto candies, keto cakes, keto chocolates, keto cookies, and even keto ice creams!
Keep in mind that everyone follows different variations of a keto diet and that while some dessert products don't work for you, they may work for someone else! After all, ketosis is a metabolic state and not simply a list of "yes" and "no" foods.
The Best Keto Desserts You Can Buy
How can desserts be keto-friendly?
Most of the options we listed use alternative ingredients, transforming to abide by either the keto diet or low carb diet.
For example, using a low carb sweetener or flour alternative are great ways to make your sweets keto friendly, creating a difference in the overall net carbs.
1. Lily's Chocolate Bars
Lily's Sweets has been around since 2010 and has several chocolate bar varieties to choose from. One of the best things about their products is that it uses stevia as it's main sweetening agent.
The bars come in flavors like creamy milk chocolate, salted caramel, hazelnut milk chocolate, and salted almond chocolate. They even have extra dark chocolates that taste about as good as an artisanal chocolate bar!
If you're on the lookout for low-carb desserts to buy and stock up on this month, then Lily's Creamy Milk Chocolate is an easy choice.

It's decadent and the Chocolate Cheesecake flavor is everything you can expect a chocolate cheesecake-themed ice cream should be.

Each serving of their popular cookies only has 4 grams of net carbs, which is a fair deal if you factor in just how soft and chewy these keto-compliant cookies are.

There are 3 flavors available: Walnut Fudge Brownie, Double Chocolate Cake, and Birthday Cake. Basically, you just add butter and water in the cup, mix it, and cook it in the microwave.
Among the 3, Walnut Fudge Brownie is typically considered to have the best flavor and texture. It's moist, rich, and contains just the right amount of walnuts! Our suggestion? Kick it up a notch and serve with some low-carb cream cheese frosting or even a dollop of ice cream.

15. SmartCake Chocolate
SmartCakes are about as big as a small muffin and taste like a not-too-sweet cake. We recommend warming these babies up in the microwave first or leaving them in the fridge a bit (if you prefer your cakes cold) to take it up a notch!
This would be best enjoyed as an afternoon snack, preferably with a cup of bulletproof coffee since the cakes aren't as moist as traditional cakes.
