Say hello to this delicious low carb chocolate mug cake (aka. keto mug cake) with only 6g net carb and 250 kcal per serve.
It’s that time of the day, you crave that chocolate cake you saw at the bakery. But then you go back home and realize you ave nothing in your cupboard to fix that chocolate craving. So let’s call this keto mug cake to the rescue.
What is a low carb chocolate mug cake ?
A low carb chocolate mug cake is a one-serve, 90-second microwave cake recipe made with low-carb, sugar-free ingredients. I like to call this a life-saver cake because it fixes your sweet craving in no time. Plus, it really tastes like a real bakery-style chocolate cake. You won’t be disappointed by this simple keto mug cake recipe.
How much carbs in this chocolate keto mug cake?
This low carb chocolate mug cake has it all. It tastes amazing and contains only 6.5g net carb per serve. So I hear you, you think it’s a lot of carb especially if you target 25g net carb a day. But, should I remind you that a regular chocolate muffin contains 27 grams net carb? This said, you have two options. Not having a cake on keto low carb diet (which I believe is torture haha) or indulge on this and have cheese and lettuce for dinner. How does it sounds?
This keto mug cake also contains 12 grams of proteins and 6 grams of fiber. Therefore it will fuel you up and you won’t need a large dinner after this for snack.

A sugar-free chocolate cake
This sugar-free chocolate mug cake is made with only 5 ingredients. All you need to make this recipe are very simple low carb ingredients. Let’s have a look at what you need to fix your chocolate craving now.
Almond flour or almond meal, both work very well
Sugar-free crystal sweetener like erythritol or xylitol
Egg, don’t replace by an egg-free alternative
Unsweetened cocoa powder
I highly recommend to add a pinch of sugar-free chocolate chips in your mug cake for an extra chocolate flavor. And if you feel like extra treats are needed, add that extra drizzle of peanut butter and melted sugar free chocolate on top of it. What is better than peanut butter and chocolate, really?
