Low Carb Mother’s Day Baking Recipes

While food is often central to any Mother’s Day celebration, sometimes what mom might want most is some quality time on this special day. You can take her out for a spa day, plan a game night with the family or indulge her green thumb planting spring flowers and plants. Or you can combine quality time with some delicious food by doing a low-carb baking project together.

3 Delicious Low Carb Desserts for Mother’s Day

Get ready to don your aprons and choose from these baking recipes, which we selected based on your comfort level with baking. If mom isn’t local, you can order the ingredients for your chosen recipe and have them delivered to her, for a flour-filled virtual baking session.

Beginning Baker

Even if you don’t bake often (or ever), this simple and easy recipe is a delightful low carb treat that will make you and mom look like you’ve been baking for years.

These “pretty in pink” cupcakes feature creamy strawberry frosting, topped by a fresh strawberry. Between prep time and baking time, these cupcakes will be done in 30 minutes. Let them cool completely before you frost them.

Aspiring Baker

You’ve tried your hand at cookies and cupcakes, so maybe it’s time to have your (keto) cake and bake it, too.

This chocolatey cake that bakes in a skillet gets its crunch from Atkins Peanut Butter Protein Cookies.

Baker Extraordinaire

You and mom may already have your own long-standing baking traditions and know your way around a rolling pin. This multi-step recipe will be a fun baking challenge culminating in a very sweet reward.

You’ll need to chill this delish dessert for 12 to 24 hours before serving. You can garnish with blueberries or other berries of your choice, and even fresh flowers.
