The most popular sugar-free dessert recipe on this site is my Strawberry Shortcake Energy Bites recipe. They’re delicious, easy to make, and completely free of added sugar. However, some of you (especially those of you following a keto diet) have told me that you’re watching your carbs and don’t want to eat something that is sweetened with dates because of their high carb content.

Not one to back down from a challenge, I remade my Strawberry Shortcake Energy Bites recipe into a low carb energy bites form. I swapped out the dates with stevia and the oatmeal with almond flour. To be honest, I actually think this recipe tastes a little better! I also had the idea to roll some of them with shredded coconut, and let’s be real… anything rolled in coconut tastes pretty darn good.

Carb Content

According to my calculations, this entire low carb energy bites recipe contains 52.15 grams of carbs (total carbs; even less if you prefer to look at net carbs). Made into 25 small energy bites, each bite contains just under 2.1 grams of carbs. Since shredded coconut is low in carbs (4 grams per three tablespoons), rolling the energy bites in them will barely increase the carb content.


I hope you enjoy these low carb energy bites! They’re sweet and satisfying, but light enough that they don’t weigh you down. They’re a perfect as a standalone snack or as a sweet treat at the end of a savory meal. Best of all, they contain no added sugar.
