Do you ever have a craving for cheesecake but don’t want to make an entire one just to satisfy a simple craving? Enter this low-carb microwave cheesecake mug!

This 2 serving recipe is perfect. Just a quick spin in the microwave and about an hour in the refrigerator for it to set (if you can wait!) and you’ll have a creamy low-carb confection that can’t be beat.

I served this keto cheesecake mug with a quick wild blueberry sauce thrown together with just a bit of Swerve, water, and a squeeze of lemon, and blueberries. No recipe needed, just cook it over low until the blueberries start to break down and turn syrupy. Easy as that!

Ingredients (makes 2 mugs)

Cheesecake mug:
  • 1/4 cup almond flour (25 g/ 0.9 oz)
  • 1 tbsp melted butter, melted (15 ml)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup full-fat cream cheese, softened (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 1/4 cup 10% full-fat yogurt, sour cream or creme fraiche (63 g/ 2.2 oz)
  • 3 tbsp granulated Erythritol or Swerve (30 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp sugar-free vanilla extract
Optional topping (+ 1-2 g net carbs per serving):
  • 1/4 cup berries of choice
  • dash of water and/or lemon juice
  • sweetener such as stevia, Erythritol or Swerve, to taste


  1. Grease a coffee mug or a 1-cup ramekin with butter. Place the almond flour, melted butter, cinnamon, and salt in the bottom, mix well and press firmly to pack together.

  2. In a small bowl mix together the remaining ingredients, once smooth pour the mixture over the crust.

  3. Microwave for 3 minutes in 30 second intervals. Once cooked invert onto a plate. Ideally, chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
    Tips for cooking in the oven: If you don't have a microwave or want to make more servings, make 2-4 cheesecake mugs at once. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted) and cook for 20-25 minutes or until cooked in the centre.
  4. Optionally, top with berries of choice or make a quick berry sauce. Simply place all the ingredients in a sauce pan and cook over low until the berries start to break down and turn syrupy. Quick Keto Cheesecake Mug

I just made this, it's delicious! WOW! I can't believe it only took me 5 minutes or less.


Thank you Michelle!


Is there a substitute that I can make for the yogurt in this recipe? Thanks


You can use sour cream or creme fraiche (I'll mention it in the notes) 😊
