Recipe Notes

  • According to my calculations, this mug cake has about 315 calories and 3 net carbs without the chocolate chips.
  • Looking for a coconut flour recipe? No problem! Just replace the almond flour with 1 tbsp of coconut flour.
  • You could also top this cake with a little peanut butter or keto friendly whipped cream.
