The 23 Absolute Best Recipes for Low-Carb Christmas Desserts!

The holiday season has always been dominated (at least in my mind) by delicious desserts. It’s a festive season filled with cookie exchanges, magazines sporting red velvet cakes on the covers, and peppermint bark at your favorite coffee shop… seasonal treats to tempt a sweet tooth are everywhere!

But for those heading to your holiday table or special occasion who are on a ketogenic diet or low-carb diet or simply choose to lead a low-carb lifestyle, you may want to have some low-carb treats on hand.

I’ve rounded up some of the best low carb Christmas desserts from some of the best keto and low-carb blogs around. And the best part? They’re delicious enough for everyone to enjoy! While I’m not on a keto diet, I appreciate that many keto bloggers have a way with low-carb baking, especially low-carb desserts. And this collection of keto Christmas desserts truly features the best of the best. 

You’ll see these recipes labeled as both low carb desserts or as a keto version. No matter what you call them, they’re each a low carb version of a classic Christmas sweet treat. So get a head start on your holiday baking and pick out the perfect keto holiday desserts or festive treat from this list. Merry Christmas!

Frequently Asked Questions about Low-Carb or Keto Dessert recipes

​What is the best sugar substitute to bake with?

My preference has always been to use an erythritol-based sweetener, like Swerve. If you don’t have to bake completely sugar-free desserts, from a taste perspective it’s a good idea to experiment with using part sugar sub and part regular sugar. This tends to yield the best tasting desserts with fewer calories and less sugar overall. 

Can I use regular chocolate chips when baking low-carb or keto recipes?

Yes, especially if you opt for bittersweet dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips. That said, Lily’s makes delicious sugar-free chocolate to use in your sweet treats.
