Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

Lemon is just the perfect summer flavor, isn’t it? We are blessed to have a lemon tree in our back yard, so this time of year, we are literally overflowing with gorgeous, tangy-sweet lemons. So, why not make Keto Lemon Mug Cakes? Read on for the recipe.

I use the lemons in everything from fish dishes or as a light dressing for my salads, however this is one of the more decadent – though very light! – lemon recipes that I love to make to perfectly cap off a summer barbeque or casual outdoor dinner. For most of my keto baking, I use Swevre sweetener because it bakes really well, is a nearly perfect dupe for real sugar and is a 1:1 swap so it’s easy to keto-fy any recipe.

I like to top this Keto Lemon Mug Cake with fresh whipped cream and a hit of lemon zest, but honestly it’s delicious with the tangy icing!
