Keto Chocolate Mug Cake 1

A single serving low carb/keto mug cake that’s so soft, so rich, so chocolatey… you’d never guess it’s healthy!

While cravings after being on a keto/low carb plan are almost non-existent, sometimes you just want to taste chocolate. Am I right?  I don’t know about you, I don’t want to get out a bunch of ingredients and make a full-on cake!  I want it fast ! Extra benefit of this is it’s portion control. Only one serving so no over-indulging.
