Best Low Carb Lemon Dessert Recipes
Yes, yes, I am obsessed with lemon at the moment. It’s springtime, see, and lemon is the golden sun that is warming me up and breaking me out of the deep freeze of heavy winter foods. And I know I am not the only one. The interwebs abound with lemon recipes at the moment and they all look so delicious, I can hardly contain my excitement. However, not all of those lovely lemon recipes are good for me or for you, full  of carbs and sugar and wheat and other nasties. This makes me sad. So I decided I needed to round up the best low carb lemon desserts for you, all in one place. Some are my recipes, some are delicious-looking lemony treats from other great low carb bloggers. All are low carb, some are dairy-free, and one is even raw and vegan! And all of them look mouth-wateringly delicious. You’re sure to find something to love.

Low Carb Lemon Sugar Cookies

You know, I like to think I am pretty adept at this low carb gluten-free baking thing, but there are times when I come face to face with the fact that I don’t really have a clue what I am doing. As I joked on Facebook the other day, it’s all a big crapshoot. I get an idea, I consider the properties of the ingredients I can use, I head to the kitchen and I get a-mixing. Most of the time, this approach works really well for me and the results are as good as or even better than I had hoped. Every so often, however, my dough, my batter or my sauce just won’t do what I as I ask and I can’t seem to coax it into behaving, no matter how hard I try. Thankfully, the problems tend to lie with appearance and texture, but not with taste. So if it tastes good, it’s usually salvageable in some form or other. And if I’m lucky, I can regroup and get something good out of the deal.
