Last week I uploaded a recipe for Keto Flourless Pumpkin Muffins which was based on a mug cake recipe I was working on. Muffins are great to have on hand, but when you feel like having a single treat and not 5 or 6 of them, mug cakes are pretty handy!
For this recipe I used some homemade almond butter, but you can totally use store-bought ones! I really like the one from Artisana because it comes out nice and crunchy.
This mug cake is sweetened with stevia, my favourite sweetener, and is extremely easy to make! Traditionally mug cakes are microwaved for 90 seconds, but it wasn't enough for this one! 120 seconds is the way to go for this recipe!
You can eat this cake as is or top with some sugar-free whipped cream and chocolate! YUM! It's also pretty filling so you may not need to eat anything else for a little while.

Sounds wonderful, any substitutions for the Pumpkin? My hubby isn't the biggest fan.
Hi Ann, you could sub the pumpkin for sweet potato? Or just make a chocolate version? https://www.mypcoskitchen.com/low-carb-keto-chocolate-mug-cake/
Can you sub a flax egg for the egg?
I haven't tried, but I imagine you could!
Great recipe but no way can I come up with 10.48 carbs
Aah, I use net carbs so it's only 5.08g net carbs for me, which is very doable.
Omg so good!
I do not own a microwave - any idea as to how long I could bake this for and at what temperature?
Probably around 15-20 minutes at 180C/350F
