One of the most common hesitations we encounter with people attempting to go Keto is the elimination of sugar. It’s a major challenge for many people because sugar consumption is at an all-time high in the US and is hidden in so many other foods.
If you’ve exhausted all other alternatives on how to stop eating sugar, Keto may be the lifestyle choice for you. A no sugar diet is an adjustment, but once you go sugar-free, you’ll experience many health benefits, a noticeable boost in energy, fewer sugar cravings, and overall better health.
To ease you into the no sugar diet, here are three tried and true sugar-free snacks that will satisfy your cravings and that taste pretty great, too.
Cream Cheese Cookies
Low-carb, sugar-free cookies may sound like a contradiction, but we promise these cream cheese cookies are worth trying.
Made from coconut flour, cream cheese, sour cream, and butter, these cookies are sure to satisfy your sugar craving and leave you amazed that they are healthy and Keto-friendly.
You can also make a Keto-approved icing (recipe included) which consists of strawberries, cream cheese, and sour cream.
These cookies mimic the texture of a classic cookie while keeping you well under your fat intake for the day. Delish!
Insider tip: be sure to let all the cookie ingredients get to room temperature before beginning to make the dough. This will make it much easier to combine the ingredients before baking them.
Keto Shortbread Cookies
A cookie butter imitation with a total prep and cookie time of 25 minutes, our Keto Shortbread Cookies will satisfy your sugar craving will be satisfied quickly.
Fortunately for Keto dieters, many substitutions have been created for baking ingredients. Today we are thankful for a brown sugar substitution with the same texture as the original. Brown sugar, ground ginger, cloves, and cinnamon bring in the spice to shortbread cookies and make them addicting.
You can make these for the upcoming holidays or bring them to any family event. Your loved ones will be blown away at how delicious they are.
Insider tip: place in the freezer before cooking. Make sure the dough is hard enough to cut and won’t crumble, then bake.
Snickerdoodle No-Bake Keto Cheesecake

Insider tip: create a cinnamon topping to bring out the snickerdoodle flavor and accentuate the taste of the cream cheese.
