While my carb addiction focuses on bread, pasta and starchy vegetables, my husband has a perpetual sweet tooth. When our daughter looked at him with her big brown eyes and begged him to be a power ranger with her for Halloween, he knew it was time to buckle down and get healthy too, so now we are both following a low carb / keto lifestyle.
Overcoming his sweet tooth was the major challenge here. His candy addiction had reached an all time high at the time of his oath to keto… so I knew we would have to find something. One post on our Venice Foodies Community group and we received a TON of answers, so we chose one off the list, and off we went!
I met the sweet baker behind Sweets N Sprinkles, Michelle, who bakes cakes and treats out of her home. She is also following a keto lifestyle. Because of this, she expressed her frustration at needing dessert in her life. As a baker, she was determined to find keto friendly treats. I was skeptical, but she delivered in a big way.
We chose her keto sampler box, which comes with a scone, a cupcake, a muffin and 10 mini-cupcake size sweet “fat bombs” for only $15. The amount of time and money it would take to create these would amount to much more. In fact, I highly doubt mine would come out this good.

As if these sweet indulgences were not enough, she also calculates the macros for you! They are listed on her website so that you can anticipate what you are getting. Most treats are under 2 carbs per serving. For example, the highest treats like muffins, brownies and cakes topping out at 7 carbs per serving. (Seriously? YES!)
The baked goods? Just as fluffy and delicious as their carb filled counterparts without the sugary guilt. We received a chocolate chip muffin, a blueberry scone and a chocolate cupcake with a vanilla icing. (The picture is off her blueberry muffins)
Check out how delicious these look!
The blueberry scone was the perfect breakfast companion to my morning coffee. The blueberries were plump and juicy with just the right balance of tart and sweet. The chocolate chip muffin had large chunks of a semi sweet dark chocolate for a guilt free indulgence. However, my daughter took one bit of the cupcake and refused to share. Even my little princess knows when a treat tastes amazing! (And if it’s low on sugar, that’s a mom win.)
I’m telling you, if you need a low carb sweet treat, this is the woman to call. She knows her stuff and does it really well!
