Keto mug cakes are ideal for busy health-conscious dieters who follow a whole foods based paleo approach. They can be prepared in a fraction of time and are great when you crave something sweet.
Compared to traditional mug cakes, this cake is rich, chocolatey and tastes just like your favourite brownie. It's low in net carbs, high in fibre and high in healthy fats. To keep this treat moist, I used grated dark chocolate, ground chia seeds and coconut oil. Remember to add a dash of cinnamon and coffee - they do make a difference as they both enhance the flavour of any chocolate treats.

Ingredients (makes 2 mug cakes)
- Optionally, add a dollop of whipped cream, coconut cream or creme fraiche
- Not sweet enough? If you just started following a low-carb diet, then you may find some recipes not sweet enough. You can add a few extra drops of stevia or a little more erythritol or Swerve to suit your palate.
- Avoiding caffeine? If you're using decaf coffee, opt for naturally caffeine-free chicory coffee or Swiss water process decaf coffee which is chemical-free.
