How Do You Make Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Mug Cakes?
A mug cake is similar to making a typical cake, but you save a ton more time. Combine your wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix and microwave for 60-90 seconds.
What is Erythritol Keto?
Erythritol is zero-calorie, no-carb sweetener naturally found in some fruits and vegetables, and even some fermented food. Your body processes it a lot differently than other sugar alcohols. Bottom line, it’s a lot less gassy.

The keto lifestyle can sometimes cause me to get dizzy and have brain fog. It can be really hard to focus. Each night before bed I like to drink bone broth. Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand. They have beef and chicken flavors. I add a little liquid aminos and hot sauce for flavor. You can sip it from a mug or eat it like a miso soup in a bowl.
I add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil to my coffee in the morning. This helps add additional fat to support keto macros and also helps with keto flu.

Easy, Keto Low Carb One-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons zero cal sweetener I used Swerve
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder if gluten-free use gluten-free
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar-free chocolate chips I used Lily's. Cacao nibs also work well.
- cooking oil I use a natural olive oil spray
Whipped Cream (Optional)
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon sweetener
- Mix all of the dry ingredients in a medium bowl (almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder)
- Combine and mix the wet ingredients (egg, vanilla, and melted butter) in a separate bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix well until fully blended.
- Fold in the chocolate chips and stir.
- Spray a mug with cooking oil. Add the mixture to the mug.
- Microwave for 50 seconds to 1 minute. I timed it for 50 seconds because I wanted a really moist cake. With 1 minute it will be slightly more firm, but still moist.
Whipped Cream (Optional)
- Add the whipping cream to a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer and mix for 2 minutes. Add in the sweetener. Mix until whipped cream forms.
