It's Valentine's Day this weekend, which means we have sweets and treats on our mind. We've said it before and we'll say it again, but we're big believers in balance and moderation when it comes to health and wellness. That means, every now and then, we like to have something sweet—whether we're celebrating by ourselves or with a significant other.
What's great about the internet though is that there are countless recipes that are both decadent and somewhat healthy. While we would never call these cakes nutritious, they are sugar free and adhere to many diet variations, including keto.
So whether you're spending Valentine's Day with someone special or enjoying a solo night alone, here are a few sugar free desserts to keep you company! And if cake isn't your thing, try these healthy dessert options instead.
1. Almond Flour Cake With Figs
Recipe by: Sun Kissed Kitchen
Cake without all the added sugar? Yes, please! This light and fluffy recipe is the perfect treat for a romantic weekend. It's paleo and mostly plant-based (sub maple syrup and flaxseed eggs to make it vegan), yet it's absolutely delish. The Turkish figs are an added treat.
2. Keto Chocolate Cake
Recipe by: Savory Tooth
Another sugarless cake option, this keto cake is silky smooth and satisfies all our chocolate cravings. While the ingredients aren't necessarily healthy (lots of baking chocolate, whipping cream, and sugar-free sweetener), it's an indulgant treat for a special occasion.
3. Red Velvet Molten Lava Mug Cake
Recipe by: The Spruce Eats
For a dessert who's color even matches the occasion, we love these delicious mug cakes. They only take five minutes to prep and two minutes to cook, making them an ideal treat to whip up after dinner. You can even make the servings small, too, so as not to have an entire cake leftover.
4. New York Style Keto Cheesecake
Recipe by: All Day I Dream About Food
This sugar free cheesecake has only seven ingredients and three carbs—yes, seriously. All it includes is cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, lemon, butter, stevia, and vanilla extract. Yum!
