    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 12-15 minutes or until cooked in the centre. Keto Chai Tea Mug Cake

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This was so good! I added a bit more spices to it and used a sugar free Torani syrup Chai Tea flavored because I was out of chai tea bags. It was excellent and I love that it makes two. I put the other (batter) in the fridge for another night this week.
I wonder if the batter could be frozen and thawed for another time. I would love to have these on hand when people bring sugar loaded deserts I can just have one of these ready. I might give that a try.


Thank you Allison! I think it's better if you prepare the dry mix (maybe for 4-8 servings and then just measure out about 90 g (3.2 oz) + add all of the liquid ingredients to make 2 mug cakes, or 45 g (1.6 oz) + half of the liquid ingredients to make 1 mug cake. I don't think the batter would freeze well. Of you can make the mug cake, let it cool and then freeze. You can then let it defrost or briefly reheat in the oven to serve.


I made these this morning and put a small amount of blue berries on top and about 1Theavy whipping cream drizzled over it. Delish. The hubby loved it. A great  change from what’s and bacon in the morning.


Thank you Khristina!


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


I hope you like it Beth! 😊


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 😊 Thank you for making keto eating easy!


Thank you Mellisa!
