On A Keto Diet? Try These Guilt Free Treats*

*This is a collaborative post but all views are my own*

Hello all, it's been a little while since I've done a food review post but when the lovely folk at Deliciously Guilt Free sent me a box of their 'healthier' sweet treats I jumped at the chance to eat and review them, who wouldn't?
Deliciously Guilt Free is a UK low carb and keto bakery who deliver direct to your door. Basma and Dan who own the company, bake their sweet treats in a professional kitchen just outside of Cambridge. Their keto cakes, brownies and biscuits are all made with natural ingredients and are low sugar, low carb and gluten free. If you're on a keto or low carb diet then they're an ideal guilt free treat.

I received 'The Favourites' mixed box see above, which contains; 
2 x Blueberry and lemon drizzle cakes (2g net carb per cake), 
2 x Peanut butter brownies (2.95g net carbs per brownie), 
2 x Salted caramel blondies (1.1g net carbs per blondie), and 
2 x Chocolate fudge brownies (1.4g net carbs per brownie). 
They were neatly packaged and sealed for freshness see below.

I'll be honest, I've tried 'healthier' treats in the past and I've found them to be a bit hit and miss, however, I was pleasantly surprised by these from Deliciously Guilt Free. 
My favourite has to be the Blueberry and lemon drizzle. Out of the four variations this one was the sweetest tasting and had the most 'cake like' texture which teamed with a good old cup of tea, really hit the spot. I'd definitely have more of these. 
The Salted caramel blondies were very buttery and fresh and I also really enjoyed these. 
Being a little on the rich side for me, the Chocolate fudge brownies were very dense and chocolatey. 
My least favourite was probably the Peanut butter brownie. They tasted too much like dark chocolate for my liking with the peanut butter taste hitting my tastebuds afterwards. Each to their own though as my boyfriend really enjoyed these.

In terms of consistency, my boyfriend said that the brownies had a clarty texture which I think is quite apt. They definitely have more of a dense, fudgy texture than other brownies and feel very rich in your mouth. As such they can be quite sickly if you eat too many in one go - note to self not to be too greedy in future!
If you're adopting a healthier lifestyle and are looking for a low sugar, low carb treat then definitely have a look at these. Priced at £10.99 for a box of 8, they aren't cheap but the plus side is that you can enjoy them guilt free. They can also be frozen for up to two months. Shipping is £4.50 but if your order comes to over £35 then postage is free. 
In summary I would definitely have more of the Blueberry and lemon drizzle cakes - probably as a payday treat. I personally think these cakes would make a great birthday gift for someone doing the keto or low carb diet.
