About Us

Hi!  My name is Elizabeth McGrath and live with my wonderful husband and two amazing kids in McKinney, Texas.  I love baking.  I've been baking since I was a kid, and come from a family of strong women who taught me how to bake and who also loved baking.

I started a Keto diet about two years ago.  After ten years and two kiddos, my health was failing me and I was miserable.  I was overweight, suffering from an auto-immune condition, insulin resistance, and I was dealing with severe chronic pain and fatigue on a daily basis.  As someone who used to be very healthy and active, this was a very hard time for me. 

After much much research on dietary changes and after testing multiple different diets (whole food diet, autoimmune diet), I settled on the Keto diet and removed wheat and sugar from everything I ate.  And ya'll- the change was ASTOUNDING.  The pain dissapated quite a bit and I had more energy that I'd had in years!  I had improved movement and I was able to accomplish projects and workout like I used to!  I decided to adopt the Keto way of life for good.

But...I love sugar!  I love baking and I used to bake scrumptious sugar filled, wheat filled desserts from my Grandmother's cookbook.  I still had my Grandma's cookbook and all my old family recipes, and I was devasted that I couldn't eat the standard sugar filled flour made cakes and cookies from my past.  So I decided to learn how to make those amazing delectable desserts with Keto ingredients and surprise! They tasted really really great!  I started making desserts that even my kids couldn't tell were sugar free and wheat free!  I was on to something.

The idea for a bakery has been in my head since I was a little girl.  I am an entrepreneur by heart, and have always dreamed of owning my own bakery or restaurant.  I felt that there was a severe need to get low carb and sugar free desserts to the public because I was having a difficult time finding keto friendly desserts that tasted good!  So with a lot of prayer, I decided to open The Keto Sweet Shoppe.  I hope you enjoy the desserts that I make, and I am very grateful for this opportunity to serve my community.

Lots of love,
