One of the most important decisions to make when preparing keto candy is figuring out which type of sweetener you’re going to use. There are plenty of sugar-free sweeteners out there — but which ones to choose?
Monk fruit and stevia are ideal, they’re both natural sweeteners that come from real food sources (not made in a lab).
Another option is sugar alcohols. While these aren’t necessarily harmful, many people report digestive issues, and some can even spike your blood sugar. Therefore, if you’re going for sugar alcohols stick to erythritol. Sugar alcohols like maltitol and xylitol may be hard to digest.
Whether you’re a gummy lover, a chocolate fanatic, or something in between — there’s a keto candy recipe for you. You don’t have to miss a beat when those candy cravings start to rear their ugly heads, just be sure to make enough to share!
