Keto Mug Cake Recipe

A quick and simple way to satisfy your chocolate cravings, this keto mug cake is flavored with ground almonds, nut butter, and cacao. Simply mix, cook for two minutes and enjoy


  • 1 tbsp salted butter, plus extra for the mug
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 30ml almond or coconut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 45g ground almonds
  • 2 tsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp xylitol
  • Toppings (optional)
  • Greek yogurt,
  • nut butter,
  • desiccated coconut,


Butter the largest mug you have (to stop it from overflowing in the microwave). Add the butter, peanut butter, and milk into the mug and warm in the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir to combine.

Add the egg and stir to combine. Add the ground almonds, cacao, and xylitol and mix until combined.

Center the mug in the middle of the microwave and cook. Start at a high temp (for a 750W microwave) and cook for three 30-second intervals. The cake will look a bit gooey when it comes out, but allow it to rest for 2mins and it will firm up nicely. Top with Greek yogurt, nut butter or desiccated coconut if you like.
