What could be better than cake on demand? Mug cakes are all the rage, so I thought I’d test out a keto version.

If my keto chocolate brownie mug cake recipe has you thinking of all the variations you could try, then you’ll love this list of keto mug cake recipes.

How I Made it Keto

Doesn’t this keto chocolate brownie mug cake sound magical? It tastes magical too, but it’s the real deal!

There are just a few simple swaps needed from your run-of-the-mill non-keto chocolate mug masterpiece.

  1. Swap all-purpose flour for almond flour
  2. Exchange sugar for stevia
  3. Lose the vegetable oil
  4. Add an egg
  5. Add cinnamon
  6. Exchange chocolate chips for cacao powder

Cacao 101

Cacao powder is made by cold-pressing the unroasted beans of a cacao tree. If you were to roast raw cacao at high temperatures, however, you’d get cocoa powder. So they’re related, but with some important differences.

Roasting cacao alters its nutritional value – and not for the better. Raw cacao is a superfood lauded for its high antioxidant content. It also lowers insulin resistance and blood pressure, and is a good source of magnesium, iron, manganese, zinc, calcium, and copper.

Cacao powder is not going to taste like hot cocoa mix. It’s more intense and hasn’t been cut with a ton of sugar. If you’ve never tasted it, this chocolate mug recipe is a good place to start. Another great recipe to get your tastes for unsweetened cacao powder are our keto brownies.

This keto chocolate brownie mug cake recipe might not suit all of the taste buds in the house, so you could always make a non-keto version for any picky eaters.
