A keto diet is very low in carbohydrates, so is it even possible to still enjoy baked goods and stay on your diet? Baked goods can be very high in carbs from ingredients such as sugar and wheat flour. For example, a bagel, large hamburger bun, slice of cake or pie, brownie, or cookie can each have 50 or more grams of carbs, or more than an entire day’s worth on a keto diet. That’s because a keto diet may include about 20 to 50 grams of carbs each day (though it varies depending on factors such as your body size and activity level).
But here’s the good news. You can still enjoy baked goods on a keto diet! The trick is to choose low-carb and keto-friendly versions of your favorite baked goods. And, you’ll need to watch portion sizes no matter how low the goods are in carbs.
Netrition has plenty of options for your low-carb diet. And, if you want to bake from scratch, Netrition has keto-friendly ingredients that you can use instead of regular sugar and flour. Here’s how you can still enjoy baked goods on a keto diet.

Make Your Own
If you want to bake from scratch, Netrition can help with that as well. Select from a variety of Sugar Substitutes that are good for baking and measure cup for cup like regular sugar. We even have brown sugar substitutes. Instead of starchy white flour, you can try low-carb flours such as Coconut Flour and Almond Flour.
Tips for Enjoying Baked Goods on a Keto Diet
These are some more tips for enjoying baked goods on a keto diet.
- Read the label when you can to make sure you know how many carbs and net carbs there are per serving, and the serving size.
- Eat these foods in moderation.
- Be sure to eat them with other low-carb foods. For example, you can keep your treat lower in carbs when you choose Sugar-Free Peanut Butter or Nut Butter and Sugar-Free Jam on bread, or have a morning Low-Carb Croissant with Sugar-Free Chocolate instead of high-carb chocolate.
Baked goods can definitely be on a keto diet. Netrition makes it easy to enjoy your favorites without guilt.
