#3 Low-Carb Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Given the decadence of the final cheesecake topped brownie, the macros will come as quite a surprise. Each brownie is only 178 calories, only 11g of carbs, 13.6g of fat. Additionally, the supply you 6g of protein and an impressive 5.3g of fibre! We all need treats every once in a while and when they are as tasty as this, but for those kinds of macros what's stopping you?

#4 Low-Calorie Apple Tart

Low Calorie Apple Tart

What if we told you that you could have a slice of sweet, comforting apple pie for under 120 calories and 12.75g of carbs (nearly all of which are coming from the natural sugars in the apple)? You'd bite our hand off, right? Add to that the fact that each slice is just under 5g of healthy fibre and this apple tart is pretty much your dream diet dessert.

#5 Low-Carb Sticky Toffee Pudding

Low Carb Sticky Toffee Pudding

This recipe took us a bit by surprise here at Lo-Dough. Getting a beautiful sticky toffee pudding onto a plate without adding any sugar and as little fat as possible was no mean feat. But after some playing in the kitchen, we've done it and it tastes indistinguishable from the full-carb, full-fat version! The key as ever is using Lo-Dough instead of flour, but also, in this case, using quality sweetener in place of sugar. You can make a rich, glossy-brown toffee sauce with just the tiniest amount of sugar - more of that later!
