10 Best Keto Mug Cake Recipes That Only Taste Guilty
One of the best things about the keto diet is keto mug cake recipes! A decadent dessert that’s healthy? Yes, please! Equally fantastic is that they are so easy and with a few simple ingredients in a mug microwaved for a delightful dessert in minutes!
If you have never heard of a mug cake, let me enlighten you. It is a delicious dessert for one that you’ve prepared in a mug. They are simple and fast. They allow you to have a treat without over-indulging.
For those of you that like to have prepared foods on hand, you can actually buy mug cake mixes. There are several on Amazon. I’ve tried and like Birch Bender’s brand and Sweet Logic brand.
What Do I Need To Make One?
While each recipe differs slightly, they all use pretty much the same common ingredients. I get my ingredients on Amazon or at Walmart. If you are near Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and Trader Joe’s, they also will have the ingredients.
Here are the ingredients you’ll most likely need:
Flours: Many low-carb and Keto recipes will use coconut flour or almond flour.
Sugar-Free Chocolate: For cooking/baking on keto you will want good sugar-free chocolate. We like Lakanto and Lily’s.
Sugars: There are many brands/kinds of sugars for baking but we prefer Swerve and Erythritol.
