    Hi Heather –

    Thank you for this collection! I love eating keto, but it tends to be very dairy-heavy.

    Dairy hates me. It abuses my affections.

    Finding recipes with keto macros without dairy is a real find!

    Would you mind providing a link to the cinnamon-walnut mug cake, please? The links leads to the keto berry mug cake, which is pictured above the cinnamon walnut mug cake. I would love to try the cinnamon walnut version, but can’t find the page.

    Thank you for such a great post!

  • Yes! Dairy-free keto recipes are not super easy to find. I hear ya!

    Thanks for letting me know about the link. I’ve updated the post and you can find the cinnamon walnut cake at this link – https://www.ketogenicgirl.com/blogs/ketogenic-recipes/easy-one-minute-cinnamon-walnut-mug-cakes-1
