|Prep Time||Cook Time||Total Time||Servings|
|5 mins||2 mins||7 mins||1 serving|
- 2 tablespoons almond flour (14 grams)
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (7 grams)
- 1 tablespoon granulated sweetener of your choice
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (1.25 grams)
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon melted butter (14 grams)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (15 milliliters)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (1.25 milliliters)
- 1 large egg
Special Notes: You can adjust the sweetness of the cake by adding more or less sweetener based on your preference. Feel free to add some sugar-free chocolate chips or chopped nuts for added texture and flavor.
- In a microwave-safe mug, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the melted butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, and egg to the mug. Stir well until all the ingredients are fully combined and there are no lumps.
- Microwave the mug on high for about 1 minute and 30 seconds to 2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and is set in the middle. Cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave, so keep an eye on it to prevent overcooking.
- Carefully remove the mug from the microwave (it will be hot!) and let it cool for a minute or two before enjoying.
- You can eat the cake straight from the mug or transfer it to a plate. Feel free to top it with some whipped cream or a sprinkle of cocoa powder for an extra indulgence.
This Keto Chocolate Mug Cake is perfect for a quick dessert fix or a late-night craving. It's also a great option for those following a low-carb or keto diet. Serve it warm with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream or a scoop of low-carb ice cream for an extra special treat. Enjoy it on its own or pair it with a cup of keto-friendly hot chocolate for the ultimate cozy dessert experience.
