Keto Chai Tea Mug Cake

Following a ketogenic diet doesn't mean you have to avoid treats altogether. Once in a while, you can reward yourself with a sugar-free dessert like this delicious mug cake. It's quick, paleo-friendly and won't kick you out of ketosis. Just like my Chai Tea Latte, this one is made with fragrant autumn spices.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):


  1. Make the chai tea concentrate using ¼ cup of boiling water and 1 chai tea bag and leave it to infuse for 3-5 minutes. Alternatively, you can make your own chai tea concentrate using the spices and black tea in this recipe: Chai Tea Latte. Place all the dry ingredients in bowl and combine well.
  2. Add the cinnamon, eggs, melted coconut oil, stevia (if used) ...
  3. ... and the chai tea concentrate. Mix well and place in two mugs or ramekins.
  4. Microwave each mug cake on high for 70-90 seconds.
    Tips for cooking in the oven: If you don't have a microwave, I suggest you make 4-8 servings at once. Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F and cook for about 20 minutes or until crispy on top and firm inside.
  5. When done, you can optionally top the mug cakes with whipped cream or creamed coconut milk and a pinch of cinnamon. Enjoy!

This will be the first recipe I try! Looks so good!


I hope you like it Beth! Smile


King Arthur Flour Company has a bulk Chai Spice mix.  Works great in baked goods. All spices, no fillers.


These are absolutely delicious! I wouldn't have thought that I could just use chai tea.... which I love!!! That was the main reason I never wanted to bother with recipes that use chai spice because I never had all of them Smile Thank you for making keto eating easy!


Thank you Mellisa!
