This treat is for all chocolate and coffee lovers. So why not have a cup of mocha and make a 2-minute cake? If you avoid caffeine, I included a caffeine-free option made from chicory root. I also listed some allergy free options for those who can't eat eggs or nuts and added tips for oven baking. For more mug cakes, check out more keto recipes.
Allergy-free Tips and 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.
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.
