If you follow me on my Instagram you might know that I like simple keto recipes. And what’s more simple than a recipe done in a microwave! So be ready for keto mug cake recipes starting with this delicious low-carb peanut butter mug cake.
All-natural peanut butter made with no added sugar is low-carb and keto-friendly. The main thing when you buy peanut butter on a keto diet is to look at the ingredient list. In fact, many peanut butter brands include added sugar or added vegetable oils that are not keto.
The best peanut butter to buy should include only one ingredient, peanuts. And perhaps a pinch of salt, but that’s it!
One tablespoon of peanut butter made with 100% peanuts contains 2.5g of net carbs. Depending on your keto daily macros, it may look high, but it’s better to have your carbs from keto-friendly food rather than indulging in one huge amount of non-keto food.
That’s why one tablespoon of peanut butter won’t take you out of ketosis while that bakery muffin will! This being said, this keto peanut butter mug cake is your safe option to indulge and stay on track.
This is a recipe for two, that you can share or meal prep for your next day’s snack or breakfast. Keep reading for meal prep and storage but first, let’s see the ingredients you need to make this simple almond flour mug cake with peanut butter.
This recipe makes two mug cakes and you may want to serve the second mug cake later. If so, I recommend storing half of the uncooked batter in a ramekin. Film the ramekin with a plastic wrap, store in the fridge.
The next day, remove the plastic wrap and microwave straight out from the fridge. You may have to microwave for slightly longer, an extra 20 seconds may be needed to achieve the same texture as the batter is very cold.
Another option is to bake both servings at 180C (350F) on fan-forced mode for 10-12 minutes. The baked mug cake will store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Mug cakes can be dry on their own and I always recommend a dollop of cream on top. The good thing with that extra tablespoon of cream: it doesn’t add carbs to the recipe! Your keto toppings options are:
