Even if you tend to eat whole foods and avoid everything and anything processed, you may still find yourself with a bit of a sweet tooth. Craving an actual treat, not just something “sweet” like fresh berries or a keto smoothie. Know that this is normal. And if you’ve ever had dreams of a gooey chocolate cake, well, you’re in the right place.

Chocolate lovers unite!

Of course, the primary fear is often that indulging in a sweet treat every now and then will completely mess up your healthy eating plans.

Here’s the good news:

With the keto diet, you can actually have your cake and eat it too. Without letting processed sugars control your life.

Is chocolate allowed on the keto diet?

The short answer? Yes! While most commercial chocolate is not right for a low carb or ketogenic diet, there are a couple of chocolate options that are completely keto-friendly. The key is to steer clear of the regular commercial chocolate (the primary ingredient is usually sugar). Instead, opt for dark chocolate that contains a minimum of 70% cocoa solids.

What kind of chocolate is keto-friendly?

As mentioned above, you’re going to want to look for dark chocolate that is a minimum of 70% cocoa solids. And, this probably comes as no surprise: your chocolate should be 100% unsweetened.

Your other option, if you absolutely need your chocolate a little sweeter, is to look for stevia-sweetened dark chocolate. I’ve tested this type of chocolate in a few of my recipes and the results were great. No one could even tell my sweet treats were low carb!

Here are a few of my favorite keto chocolate products, as well as low carb sweeteners and flour substitutes.
