Yummy Low-Carb Keto Funnel Cake!

One of the best parts of going to a carnival is the food. As soon as you enter the fairgrounds, the aroma of fried food tantalizes you; especially the funnel cake. There’s just one problem, however: You’re on the keto diet, and traditional funnel cake is loaded with carbs and calories, making it totally not a keto-friendly dessert. Does that mean that you have to forego the quintessential carnival food? Not at all!

How do you make funnel cake keto?

Just like pretty much everything else, you can absolutely make funnel cake keto-friendly. How? By simply substituting wheat flour and sugar for low-carb almond flour or coconut flour and sweeteners, like monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. If you think that almond flour funnel cake or coconut flour funnel cake won’t taste as good as the original recipe? Think again!

We’ve rounded up a collection of some of the best low-carb funnel cake recipes that taste just as delicious – if not even better – than the original. Our mouths are watering just thinking about these sweet, delicious, yet surprisingly delicious treats. Make these as standalone desserts, or have as part of a keto baked goods extravaganza!
