Keto Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
Keto Chocolate Chip Mug Cake:
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener (or your preferred sugar replacement)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Lily’s dark chocolate chips (or any keto-friendly chocolate chips)
- Prep Your Mug: Select a microwave-safe mug that has a capacity of at least 8 ounces (about 1 cup) to allow room for the cake to rise without overflowing. Grease the inside of the mug with a bit of butter or non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Melt the Butter: Place the tablespoon of butter in a microwave-safe dish and melt it in the microwave. This should take about 20-30 seconds. Be careful not to overheat it; you want it to be just melted, not boiling.
- Combine Wet Ingredients: In the prepared mug, add the melted butter, a large egg, and vanilla extract. Stir these ingredients together with a small whisk or fork until well combined.
- Add Dry Ingredients: Add the almond flour, baking powder, and monk fruit sweetener (or your chosen sugar replacement) to the mug. Stir until all the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the wet mixture, and you have a smooth batter.
- Add Chocolate Chips: Sprinkle the Lily’s dark chocolate chips on the surface of the batter. You don’t need to stir them into the batter; they will sink in as the cake cooks.
- Microwave the Mug Cake: Place the mug in the microwave and cook the cake on high for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the microwave’s wattage, so keep an eye on it. The cake should rise and set, and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean when it’s done.
- Allow to Cool: Be cautious when removing the mug from the microwave; it will be hot. Let the mug cake cool for a minute or two before enjoying.
- Serve: You can eat the Keto Chocolate Chip Mug Cake directly from the mug or transfer it to a plate. Optionally, top it with a dollop of keto-friendly whipped cream or a drizzle of sugar-free chocolate syrup for extra indulgence.
This Keto Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is a quick and satisfying dessert that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings while staying within your low-carb or keto diet. Enjoy!
