Low Carb Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake

  • Author: Elaine VanVleck

  • Yield: 1 mug cake 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


This easy low carb gluten free chocolate mug cake recipe is made in the microwave. It uses almond flour and cocoa powder to make a rich chocolate dessert that's perfect for a Keto diet.



4 Tbsp. Almond Flour
2 Tbsp. Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. Pyure Granulated Sweetener
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
3 Tbsp. Almond Milk
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, melted
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 large Egg


In a coffee cup mix the almond flour, chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder, Pyure sweetener, baking powder, baking soda and salt together until all the dry ingredients are combined.

Add the almond milk, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and egg to the dry ingredients and mix together until you get a cake batter consistency.

Microwave for 60 seconds watching to make sure the cake doesn't overflow your mug. Then microwave for another 30 seconds to finish cooking your cake. 

Be careful removing the mug cake from the microwave as the handle of the mug might be hot!

The cake will rise to the top of the mug and then slowly deflate back down after you take it out of the microwave. 

I let the cake cool slightly and then serve as is or with a dollop of plain greek yogurt or some coarse sea salt on top.
