Delicious Keto Chocolate Mug Cake

I LOVED this Keto Chocolate Mug Cake recipe and will definitely be making it again when my sweet tooth kicks in. It was rich and delicious like a lava cake. It wasn’t bitter at all like someone else thought it was. I cooked it for 5 minutes then let it sit for a minute and the texture reminded me of an actual slice of cake. Sometimes a chocolate craving hits and you need something fast. This chocolate mug cake is perfect for such moments. The fact that it’s keto makes it even better. The whole thing is made right in a mug and there is no sharing involved! It will come together faster than your oven could preheat.


  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 c. almond flour
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp. keto friendly chocolate chips, such as Lily’s
  • 2 tbsp. granulated Swerve
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1/4 c. whipped cream, for serving


Place butter in a microwave-safe mug and heat until melted, 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients except whipped cream and stir until fully combined. Cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until cake is set but still fudgy.

Top with whipped cream to serve
