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.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

Tips for 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.

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.

    Cinnamon Keto Mug Cake 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. Cinnamon Keto 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.

Hello!
I just made these but I am not fond of desserts in a microwave so I baked them. They are a bit dry. Anything I can use to make them more cupcake like or moist? They are delicious and definitely used whip cream to add some “moist”.

I like to top mine with some whipped cream or low-carb frosting (like in this recipe: Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake)
Other than that you could add a tablespoon of coconut oil, butter or cream cheese to the dough before cooking. I hope this helps!

Hi...just made a two serve recipe...tasted yum.. ...i used 1 egg and double the dry ingredients with only coconut flour and added coconut milk...as per your instructions. May I know the macros per serve? Thanks

Thank you Sonia, I'm glad you liked it! 😊 The best way to get the macros would be by using the "clone" feature in our app (KetoDiet Blog section) - you can then make any adjustments and see the changes in nutrition facts.

This totally hit the spot! The amount of sweetness was on par. I was afraid it would be too sweet or chemical tasting. I was also worried it would be grainy, gummy or tough. It was nothing of the sort! I was pleasantly surprised. The only thing is there is a little aftertaste. I used Swerve sweetener exclusively, no stevia. Also I read somewhere that thoroughly mixing the egg in the batter circumvents the eggy taste.
Thanks for posting!

This is such an adorable looking mug cake.  So quick and easy to make plus the additional benefits of being healthy and full of delicious flavors provided by the cinnamon and the topping options.

I made this recipe this morning for breakfast.  MMM-MMM Good isn't words enough.  Great recipe.. Tastes just awesome.  Because it's a bit dry, I added cool whip (I didn't have whipped cream).  It did the trick!! Thanks so much for this recipe.  It's definitely a keeper!

Thank you Nola, I'm glad you liked it!

I tried this for the first time.  Taste was great but was a little dry.  What could be the problem?

I think this is this cake is drier than other mug cakes - I usually serve mine with yogurt or some whipped cream. If you prefer the mug cake more moist, try some of these: Best Keto Brownie Mug Cake, Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake or Keto Berry Mug Cake
I hope this helps! 😊

I also thought it was a little dry, but I added 2 tablespoons of half and half and that made it just perfect.  This is now one of my go-to breakfasts!

Simple and sweet! Looks great.
Personally, I love mug cakes. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and I'd rather not bake an entire batch of something, just in case it disappears. At least with a mug cake, I know I'm not going to eat too much.

Thank you Vince. I agree, I prefer making just a serving rather than a whole batch 😊

If the cake is "eggy" then the recipe requires 1/3 tsp vanilla per egg.
In every recipe the smell of the egg yolks can be cancelled by vanilla.
And even though this is a cinnamon mug cake the vanilla disappears too!
I hope this helps.
