Keto Caramelized Lemon Muffin

Either as part of a Sunday brunch or a coffee/tea treat this muffin is truly delicious. I thought of making it as a mug cake but I felt it deserves more care and attention to fully develop the textures and flavors it brings. It is tangy, sweet, with a hint of sour, and the texture of the roasted lemon makes it extra special.

I am always in the search for quick and easy recipes, that save us time in the kitchen but that, at the same time, are bursting with flavor. Many of us are alone in the keto journey, and individual sized recipes are a challenge to find. That is also something I always try to help with, as I remember quite well the struggle it was when I began my keto journey 6 years ago. This recipe is for one, eazy breezy to make, healthy, delicious, with the sharpness of the lemon, the sweeteness of the almond flour and the different textures when you bite into it. Perfect for a Sunday brunch or an afternoon tea or coffee.
