Chocolate or vanilla? That's a tough one, at least for me! Sometimes, it's great to have both options. Coconut is technically a fruit, but it's low in carbs and great for the ketogenic diet. The addition of shredded coconut adds a great texture to this treat. If you want a flavour boost, try toasting it. You will find tips on how to toast coconut in my Keto Coconut Fat Bombs.

Tips & Substitutions
Too "eggy"? Although I like this combination, some of you may perceive it as too "eggy". You can try the following: use one egg, double all the dry ingredients and add 1/4 cup coconut milk, almond milk or cream. This mixture will make 2 mug cakes.
Instead of the listed sweeteners, you can try other healthy low-carb sweeteners from this list. The reason I'm using both Erythritol and stevia is to mask the aftertaste some of the sweeteners may have.
Egg-free version: Use 2 tbsp chia seed meal (16 g / 0.6 oz) instead of 1 egg + 1/4 cup coconut milk or heavy whipping cream + 1 tsp psyllium husk powder (5.7 g net carbs per mug cake).
Nut-free version: Use 1 heaping tablespoon of coconut flour instead of 2 tablespoons of almond flour. If you don't have coconut flour, you can use 2 tablespoons of finely shredded desiccated coconut instead.
If you don't have a microwave, I suggest you make 4-8 servings at once. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional) and cook for about 15 minutes or until cooked in the centre.
