Looking for low-carb candy and sweet treat alternatives? Try these 20+ Keto and Paleo candy recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth without the grains and sugar.
If you’re Keto, Paleo, gluten-free, low carb or have other dietary restrictions it can be hard to find sweet treat recipes. I’ve been there myself. My family is gluten-free and while we don’t have carb restrictions, we often follow Paleo-friendly recipes to cut down on carbs and refined sugar. And my kids have a sweet tooth, just like my husband so I put together a list of my favorite Keto and Paleo candy recipes and sweet treats that are easy to make and made with real food ingredients.
I find having these Keto and Paleo candy alternatives really help my family get their sweet fix, so we don’t have food battles in checkout aisle at the grocery store (you know where the candy is all lined up). My kids actually tell me they love my Peanut Butter Cups recipe way more than the store-bought peanut butter cups. Parenting win!
