Keto Dessert Recipe: Almond Fudge Brownies

By Vicki Abrams, Rami Abrams

Because carbohydrates turn into sugar, many new low-carb dieters struggle with sweet-tooth cravings in the first three weeks as they transition into ketosis. Depending on what your sugar intake looked like before launching your keto diet journey, this could be a pretty significant testing ground for self-control and sticking to your meal plan and macros.

The good news is that your keto diet foods don’t have to avoid sweets — you just have to be very intentional about how you approach them and which recipes you use. With natural sweeteners that are actually healthy — such as stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol — now readily available, you can easily adapt a number of recipes to fit your requirements on the ketogenic diet.
