Keto Chocolate Mug CakeThis keto chocolate mug cake is just perfect for those times you crave a sweet treat or chocolate. 

Every now and then, I crave something sweet and sometimes, in particular, anything chocolate. Unless you dislike chocolate, I'm sure you do at times as well. Typically, I do not discriminate on the type of sweet or chocolate treat. I pretty much like them all.

One thing I love about keto is that I can have treats. I also love the idea of portion control. Mug cakes particularly come in handy for this! I also usually want it now. In this case, mug cakes are a necessity lol. Plus, truth be told, I'd eat a whole cake. So, let us avoid that detrimental behavior.

When my craving hits, I opt for my favorite keto chocolate mug cake. I am also a lazy keto'r so lemme tell you, this is easy peasy! 

You can use any type of mug you like. I tend to prefer a wide-mouthed mug. I dunno, I just like it. 

It only takes 1 minute to cook. Who doesn't have one minute when that craving strikes? Am I right? Makes it easy to not grab crappy snacks. 

I do make this for the kids too and they love it!

topping with whipped cream

add my berries into my batter instead of topping with them

I sometimes add Lilly's chocolate to the batter

So, think outside the box and add what you like!
