Crock Pot Keto Lemon Cake Dessert

Most crock pot recipes are for dishes like shredded meat, pot roasts, chilis, or stews. But did you know that you can make a cake in a crock pot?

Just like other crock pot recipes, the benefit is that it’s so convenient! After all, slow cookers are considered the “set it and forget it” kitchen appliance. Just add your ingredients and walk away.

This crock pot keto lemon cake is just as easy. Plus, it’s absolutely delicious!

Honestly, this recipe may be the easiest way you could possibly bake a cake. You’ll mix the dry cake ingredients, whisk together the wet cake ingredients, then combine them and pour them into the slow cooker.

Next, combine the topping ingredients in a bowl, then pour over the cake batter. Add the lid, cook for a few hours, and you’re done!

Slow cookers are more forgiving than cooking in the oven. That’s why this recipe is so convenient. Your cake will turn out moist and flavorful every time!

Recipe Roundup: Low-Carb Deletectable Desserts

I often find myself mourning the days before diabetes when I could eat whatever I wanted without implications. Now I have to think about if it is worth it. I have quite a sweet tooth, and most desserts are laden with carbohydrates, which makes it challenging to keep your blood sugars in range.

To enjoy a dessert after a long stressful day, first, I would need to count the carbs, then figure out my insulin dose, hope that the amount is correct and given at the appropriate time and that there were no other variables present. Sound easy? You’re right; it’s not. And the last thing I want at the end of the day is a roller coaster of blood sugars.

Low-carb desserts are a lifesaver for me when it comes to my diabetes management and my sanity. I want to be able to enjoy my guilty pleasures without having to worry about my blood sugars for hours after.

Taking a little time and effort to prepare these healthful desserts will help your weight, blood sugars, and your mental well-being. I found there was nothing worse than waking up to high blood sugars after a night of three (whoops) too many snacks.

Here is a roundup of some simple, yet delectable, low-carb dessert recipes:

Keto Blueberry and Walnut Pound Cake

This deliciously moist pound cake is strikingly similar to the real thing. The cream cheese is the secret ingredient in this recipe and also pairs lovely with the blueberry and walnut topping. If you prefer lemon pound cake, just swap out the blueberries and walnuts with some lemon juice and  lemon zest for extra flavor! Yielding 10 slices at only 6 g net carbs each, this can easily become a family favorite or something you can single-portion for yourself and freeze!

Almond Butter Keto Cookies

This four-ingredient flour-less cookie recipe is moist, dense, fudgy and gluten-free. While the fat content is a bit on the high side, at 4 g net carbs per serving, you can easily justify making this choice. Your blood sugars will be sure to agree. This recipe is also straightforward and quick to make–throw it all in one bowl and then place in the oven for ten minutes. Another benefit of this recipe is that it is made with almond butter, which has more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than peanut butter.

Keto Brownies

With just six ingredients and only 2 g net carbs per serving, this recipe is one to try. Maya, from Wholesome Yum, spent a lot of time perfecting these brownies to be moist and delicious. She also offers some great baking and serving tips. I highly recommend you try it!

Quick Keto Tiramisu

This delicious, already portion-controlled dessert contains a low-carb mug cake soaked in rum, between layers of cheesy mascarpone cheese. It is made with coconut flour, making it gluten-free, too. This dessert takes about ten minutes to make and fills two ramekins. A perfect dessert for two!

Keto Avocado Chocolate Smoothie

This six-ingredient smoothie can be thrown into the blender for a quick meal to take on the go. It is also a great way to start the day since it contains healthy fats that will keep you satisfied for hours. With its creamy consistency, it will bring you back to your childhood, as it is reminiscent of a chocolate milkshake. This has quickly become a staple in my diet!

As you can see, there are plenty of low-carb desserts that can satisfy your cravings. These desserts can make you feel better about your choices, both for your weight and blood sugar management.

Recipe Roundup: Peanut Butter and Chocolate Combos

Peanut butter is a favorite spread for many reasons. It’s not only creamy, crunchy, and tasty, but it’s also rich in protein, unsaturated fat, and iron, among other nutrients. For many people with diabetes, they include peanut butter in their diet because it’s low glycemic — it doesn’t raise blood sugar abruptly.  Versatility is another […]
