This single-serving, low carb cinnamon mug cake is just what you need when you crave something sweet. It takes less than five minutes and you'll need just a few ingredients. It's moist and is best served with a dollop of whipped cream, coconut cream or full-fat yogurt. It's not too sweet so if you prefer your keto mug cakes sweeter, add a few drops of stevia or a little more erythritol.
Tips & substitutions
If you want to make the recipe nut-free, use 1 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.
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.
Does This Mug Cake Taste Eggy?
Although I like this combination and I do not think it tastes eggy, you may be more sensitive.
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 two mug cakes instead of one.
