One of the best gifts a mom can receive on Mother’s Day is something you made yourself. Especially, when it’s a deliciously healthy treat.
From sugar-free lemon bars to flourless waffles to a completely keto pound cake, each recipe uses at least one of our sugar or syrup alternatives to make a mouth-watering dessert (or breakfast staple) with no compromise on taste.
Mom will feel extra special come Sunday when she gets a look and taste of these treats.
A key lime pie? Healthy?
We must be kidding, right? Not at all.
While the traditional ingredients of a key lime pie can’t be considered very healthy or keto friendly, all one has to do is take some familiar elements and replace them with sugar-free alternatives. This pie will taste just like your mom’s usual favorite key lime pie recipe with only 6 grams of carbs per serving!
These cookies are sure to be your mom’s favorite after just the one bite!
Not only are they super simple to make, but it’s striking red color, and deliciously decadent flavor makes quite the impression. Low in sugar and gluten-free these are perfect for anyone with allergies.
This cake is perfect for any chocolate lover!
While this cake doesn’t give you the rise of a regular chocolate cake, that doesn’t make it less delectable. This cake is filled to the brim with indulgent chocolate flavor thanks to our no sugar-added Sukrin Milk Chocolates. You can even add a little extra flavor with a nut butter (we recommend our Almond Nut Butter or Cashew and Hazelnut Smooth Chocolate Spread).
Anything lemon is a plus in my grandmother’s book. So I just had to include this lemon-filled recipe on this list!
Your mother or grandmother will be in lemon heaven once she gets a bite of these. Rich and buttery from the shortbread base, with a luscious and tangy lemon curd. Not only is it tasty, but a truly adorable centerpiece as well.
Breakfast in bed was made for Mother’s Day. If you’ve never made breakfast, at least once, for the special mom in your life then this Sunday is the perfect day to start.
Breakfast can be so heavy in carbs, but this specific waffle recipe cuts the carbs by throwing out the flour and using baking powder as the main raising agent. Our Sunflower Seed Nut Butter is also used to make this recipe even more flavorful.
The orange zest mixed with cinnamon and rich cream cheese is out of this world, made even better by doing miniature versions. You can always use this recipe for one whole cheesecake, but mom will undeniably be impressed when served an individual cake.
Plus, the smaller versions make it easier to keep some for yourself. 😉
Another small treat that packs a delicious punch. Combine two of her favorite desserts: brownies and cupcakes into one chocolatey treat!
This recipe is not only sugar-free, but wheat-free too, making it the perfect bite sized dessert or even mid-day sweet.
Present these cupcakes in a cute small tin or box and she’ll never guess these were homemade!
A cake that just screams Mother’s Day, this rich and fluffy vanilla cake drenched in strawberry jello is a dream to eat. Topped off with whipped cream and even more strawberries, this cake is the perfect end to any lunch or dinner date with mom.
If your mom is a cheesecake and pecan fanatic like mine, then she’ll fall head over heels in love with this recipe.
While the pecans may be the most visible appeal of this cheesecake, the method of browning the butter is what really brings this recipe to peak deliciousness. This cake may take some time to make, but it will be well worth the effort.
Sometimes the best Mother’s Day treat is a straightforward classic.
A keto pound cake that is simple to make, but deliciously delightful, you can bake this cake with your mom’s favorite flavor. From lemon, orange, vanilla, or any flavor you can think of, you can do it with this recipe.
