Sweet mug cakes are some of the easiest go-to keto desserts. A couple of minutes - that's all it takes to make this treat! Even if you don't follow a ketogenic diet, you will simply fall in love with them. Just like my other recipes, these are also paleo-friendly. If you don't have a sweet tooth, you can try some of the savoury mug muffins on my blog!
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.
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.
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.
