What is Keto?

A Keto diet is any diet that causes ketones to be produced by the liver, shifting the body’s metabolism away from glucose towards fat utilization. So basically, recipes that fall under the ketogenic diet category are weight-loss friendly! You can find an in-depth explanation of what a keto diet is, the benefits, what to eat and why you should start a keto diet on this “ULTIMATE BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO KETOSIS: KETOGENIC DIET EXPLAINED” that I wrote.

Why Are Mug cake Recipes Popular?

Mug recipes are popular mostly because they are an easy way of satisfying your food cravings without any food wastage and any fancy equipment. Secondly, mug recipes are easy and quick. Even a person with absolutely zero culinary skills can whip up a deliciously flavorful mug recipe from scratch by simply following a recipe.

What do I need to create this Amazing Keto Mug Cake Recipes?

For the recipes I share here, you will only need a beautiful microwave-safe mug. You can check out my mug recommendations HERE… they are beautifully crafted (almost like handmade),  the shape gives such a secure hold, and – they just feel good to hold, like a cup with feng shui. It’s heavy in the best way and durable.

You will also need a good microwave if you don’t already have one. My number one recommendation for ya’ll out there on a budget but still, need a good microwave then check this FULLY FEATURED COUNTERTOP MICROWAVE OVEN by Toshiba. Its 1100 watts and has 10 power levels with energy-saving mode and fits right in your small kitchen and saves space.

Can I make my Keto Mug Cake Recipes in the oven?

The simple answer to this is YES! but remember you need oven-proof mugs for this and you can get them from the recommendations I made above. To make these recipes in the oven, just double up the quantities and use a casserole or oven-proof baking dish. It’s worth noting though, most mug recipes take less than 5 mins in the microwave, and when made using an oven take a little bit longer (10 – 15 minutes). So the choice is ultimately yours depending on the yield you want to make.

So let’s get this party started already…

KETO CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

Keto chocolate mug cake

INGREDIENTS FOR KETO CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

  • ⅓ cup almonds or pecans, or 6 Tbsp. almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar or sweetener of choice pinch stevia, or an additional 2 tsp. sugar
  • ⅛ Tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp. milk of choice (or 2 if using liquid sweetener)
  • ¼ tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Optional, chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAKING

  • Combine all ingredients in a greased ramekin or small mug.
  • Either bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 10 minutes or cook in the microwave. If microwaving, time will vary depending on wattage and desired gooeyness. I started with 30 seconds and then added two 15-second intervals after that.
  • The cake will look a bit gooey when it comes out, and it firms up as it cools. But there’s no need to wait for it to firm up too much — this cake is meant to be eaten straight from the mug!

KETO SALMON & CREAM CHEESE MUG MUFFIN

Keto Mug muffins and keto mug cakes are some of the most convenient keto-friendly meals. They can be made both sweet and savory and take just a few minutes to prepare. For those of you that may not have a microwave, I included some tips for baking the muffins in the oven.

INGREDIENTS KETO SALMON & CREAM CHEESE MUG MUFFIN

  • 2 Tbsp. water pinch salt

Add: 60 g smoked salmon (2.1 Oz) 2 Tbsp. freshly chopped chives or spring onion serve with 2 dollops of full-fat cream cheese or sour cream (60 g / 2.1 oz) If you need to make this keto mug cake recipe nut-free, use more flax meal (same amount) or coconut flour (half the amount). When using ingredients, always go by their weight, especially in the case of baked goods. Measures such as cups may vary depending on a product/brand. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAKING

  • Place all the dry ingredients in a small bowl and combine well.
  • Add the egg, cream, water and mix well using a fork.
  • Slice the smoked salmon and finely chop the chives. Add to the mixture and combine well. 04. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds. When done, top with a dollop of cream cheese and enjoy!
