We’ll definitely dig into all those layers of red velvety goodness slathered with a low-fat cream cheese frosting. This decadent cake uses coconut flour, which adds to the richness of the cake, but subtracts from the carb content, making it a healthier version to scarf on. The recipe makes a huge cake, so we suggest sharing the love.

9. Lemon Blueberry Bars

Using a sugar substitute and real homemade berry compote, this low-carb variant of the delicious Italian dessert melts hearts without the guilt trip. We suggest separating the panna cotta into individual moulds for an even more gorgeous end to your meal.
