Keto Vanilla Mug Cake with Whipped Cream:
- 1 oz cream cheese
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp sweetener (e.g., golden monk fruit)

- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 large egg
- Optional: Keto-friendly sprinkles
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (HWC)
- 1-2 tbsp powdered sugar substitute (e.g., Swerve)
- Prepare Ingredients:
- Measure out the cream cheese, coconut flour, sweetener, vanilla extract, baking powder, egg, and optional keto-friendly sprinkles.
- Soften Cream Cheese:
- Microwave the cream cheese for about 20 seconds until it’s slightly softened.
- Whisk Egg:
