Make-Ahead Desserts

Before we get into the main part of the article, let me just stress that the vast majority of desserts will be made ahead of time!

This allows you to enjoy your camping holiday to the max and minimizes the time you have to spend in prep while still having some tasty treats on hand!

The main issue is that some of these desserts and snacks aren’t always available off the shelf, so you might need to make them at home before your trip.

Just keep this in mind before you start jotting down a massive grocery list!

Let’s get to the desserts…

Keto almond bites

As the name suggests, these little snacks are made from almonds and they’re very tasty. They also have a long shelf life so can be made in batches and kept for when you need them!

Simply grind up some almonds in your food processor, then add an egg white to bind it all together.

If you want to, you can also cook this mixture after adding the egg white and forming them into balls!

Another popular keto bites are Blueberry bites!

Again, these are very simple to make and easy to take camping with you. Simply mix together an almond meal, an egg, some blueberries (fresh or frozen), cinnamon, and a dash of salt until everything is combined nicely.

You can also add other flavors like raspberry or vanilla extract if you want!

Keto sugar-free cheesecake

Now it is important that this dish is sugar-free because that is the whole basis of a ketogenic diet!

To make this dish, you will require cream cheese, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and stevia.

You can find more details on how to prepare this dish here: Keto Sugar-Free Cheesecake Recipe.

Keto cream cheese pancakes

All you need for this recipe is almond flour, eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla extract!

To prepare this camping keto dessert simply whisk the ingredients together before cooking them like pancakes! 

Keto peanut butter cookies

Now this one will be a favorite with the kids, but it’s also a great option for parents! I’m sure you have all made cookies before, so this one is easy to prepare and cook while camping!

Simply mix together some almond flour with peanut butter, vanilla extract, stevia, milk (almond milk), and baking soda.

Once everything is combined well roll the mixture into balls and then flatten them.

If you want to cook the dough right away, then simply arrange your cookie balls on a well-greased tray in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes!

Keto chocolate chip cookies

Keto chocolate chip cookies are probably the best camping keto desert out there, and they’re super easy to make!

All you need for this recipe is almond flour, coconut oil (softened), vanilla extract, stevia (or erythritol and a teaspoon of molasses), salt, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix everything together and your chocolate chip cookies will be ready in no time!

Keto walnut snowballs

You may have heard these called Russian tea cakes, but they have a totally different meaning in the keto community.

These cookies are made from ground walnuts, almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, eggs, and sweeteners (normally stevia)!

They’re super tasty and great for a camping trip because you can always keep them in your bag to grab when you need a snack!

Warm Keto Desserts

There are just some desserts that taste so much better when they are heated up! I know, I know, it’s a bit odd to have warm chocolate cake or other desserts for camping because by the time you get it out of your cooler and heated up it might be cold!

But trust me when I say these desserts taste so good warmed up by a small campfire…

Keto chocolate mug cake

Since you can’t heat this dish up in a microwave you are going to have to wait until you set up your campfire!

So it’s best to make this dish in batches. All you need are some almond flour, cocoa powder, erythritol, baking soda, and salt.

Basically, mix everything together with some eggs and coconut oil for a taste before cooking in a frying pan or cast-iron skillet.

You can cook this dish like a pancake and once it’s cooked on both sides you can eat!

Keto mug brownie

This is another dish ideal for cooking over a campfire.

To make this simple keto dessert all you need are some almond flour, almond butter, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, butter or coconut oil, erythritol, and some cocoa powder!

So you can just mix everything together with your eggs in a big bowl before pouring the mixture into a cast-iron skillet or frying pan.

Keto warm lemon pudding cakes

You can’t have a keto camping dessert without one of them being made out of a tangy lemon!

To make this dish you will need lemon juice, eggs, butter or coconut oil, cream cheese, erythritol, and vanilla extract.

Mix everything together with some water for a smooth batter before cooking the cakes in a frying pan.
