All of my Keto friends face an unfortunate reality at some point. Just because they’ve committed to a super low carb diet doesn’t mean their desire for dessert is going to suddenly disappear.

Fortunately, this Keto chocolate collagen mug cake recipe is just one example of how you can continue to enjoy sweets on a ketogenic diet.

How to Indulge Sans Guilt

If you scan the ingredients, there’s one item you probably don’t have on hand: CoBionic Indulgence.

CoBionic Indulgence blends cocoa powder and high-quality collagen with six superfoods. It’s a nutritional supplement that works wonders on your hair, skin, and nails without compromising your diet.

In fact, CoBionic Indulgence only has 1g of net carbs per serving, so it’s a smart hack to give your desserts a rich chocolate flavor without sugar and carbs.

Additional Swaps That Made This Mug Keto

Mug cakes are the way to go when you’re baking for one. They offer perfect portion control while satisfying your craving for cake.

But most of the mug cake recipes out there are far from appropriate for a Keto diet. Whether you’re making a regular cake or a mug cake, white flour tends to be ingredient number one.

Instead of white flour, I used almond flour for this chocolate mug cake. Since it’s a nut-based flour, you avoid those pesky grain carbs.


Another tricky hurdle is sugar. Cake is supposed to be sweet, so it’s to be expected that it contains sugar. Since sugar is no good for Keto, you can use confectioner’s erythritol instead.

The chocolate flavor comes from cocoa powder, which is pretty standard in chocolate mug cakes. That is amplified by the CoBionic Indulgence supplement.

Another hazard in the world of mug cakes is the use of canola or vegetable oil. It’s a great idea to ditch these unhealthy oils whether you’re Keto or not, so consider using alternatives like the coconut oil suggested for this Keto mug cake.

An egg and baking powder help round out the recipe.

Some Supplements You May Be Missing

We all do our best to prepare and eat healthy, nutritious meals, but the reality is that it’s difficult to get everything our bodies need.

Supplements can round out your diet and cover bases you might be missing with your diet. They can also help you to achieve goals such as losing weight on Keto.

I talked about CoBionic Indulgence, which I suggest using in this mug cake, but there may be other things you could benefit from.


This article details some supplements to consider on a ketogenic diet.
