20 Keto Christmas Treats

keto christmas treats

The Christmas season is the time for celebrating. And you can’t celebrate Christmas without treats, right?

Treats like cookies, candy, cupcakes, cookies…did I already mention cookies? But all these treats tend to be loaded with carbs.

And all those carbs mean not being able to fit into your skinny jeans.

Now you could skip the treats during Christmas. But that wouldn’t be very fun.

I have a better idea.

Today, I’m sharing 20 keto Christmas treats. They’re not only keto but tasty too.

So, you can still enjoy Christmas…without blowing your ketosis. Yay!

1. Keto Candied Pecans

Candied Pecans


I love candied pecans, as I’m sure many of you do too. After all, what’s not to love about them?

But candied pecans certainly don’t love you back. That’s because of all the sugar, which goes right to your waistline.

These candied pecans are crispy, crunchy, sweet, and salty. And the touch of cinnamon adds holiday cheer.

And they’re simply addictive. I bet you can’t stop at just one.

They’re also loaded with fat. So, they make for a pretty tasty fat bomb.

To keep them low carb, you’ll be using a granular sweetener. I recommend this one here.

Unlike some other sweeteners, it doesn’t have a bitter after-taste. So, your candied pecans will taste nice.

  • Calories: 202
  • Fats: 20g
  • Protein: 3g
  • Net Carbs: 2g

2. Low-Carb Salted Raspberry Chocolate Bark

Salted Raspberry Chocolate Bark


Do you love your sweets but hate baking? This is the dish for you.

It takes only 8 minutes of prep time. Then you place it in the freezer. Easy, peasy.

And it’s tasty and full of chocolate and raspberry goodness. The crushed red raspberries look pretty festive on the chocolate backdrop.

And you only need 4 ingredients: dark chocolate, coconut oil, frozen raspberries, and liquid stevia.

To keep it low carb, make sure your dark chocolate contains at least 85% cocoa. The more cocoa your dark chocolate has, the less sugar it has.

This one here is a good option.

3. Easy Keto Peppermint Fudge

And you can eat it to your heart’s content. That’s because one piece contains less than 1 gram of net carbs.

Making it is pretty easy. Just place your sugar-free peppermint candies in a plastic wrap.

Then using a hammer, gently crush them. Next, place the rest of your ingredients in a bowl, mixing well.

After this, add your crushed peppermint candies, and mix well. Then place your mixture in a plastic-wrap lined pan, pressing well.

Finally, chill for one hour before cutting into squares.

To keep them low carb, you’ll be using a mixture of almond flour and coconut flour. Besides being low carb, they’re also gluten-free.

They’re also nutritious. Almond flour is rich in manganese and magnesium, which you need for good bones.

It’s also an excellent source of Vitamin E, which you need for healthy skin. If you need to stock up on some, you can get some here.

Meanwhile, coconut flour is rich in fiber, which helps you stay full. And it’s an excellent source of iron, which you need to keep your energy levels up.

As an added bonus, they’re a good source of Vitamin A. So, they’re good for your immune system.

Instead of sugar, you’ll be sweetening them with erythritol. Erythritol is a natural sweetener that doesn’t raise blood sugar.

And it may even prevent cavities. You can even add it to your coffee or tea. If you’d like to give it a try, you can get some here.
