It’s also easy, rich and chocolatey, and ready in under 5 minutes!

For this keto mug bread, you can make it chocolate or vanilla.  All you need to do is omit the cocoa powder from the recipe for a vanilla version that is just as delicious!

You’ll also see in the recipe card below that I provide instructions for almond flour or coconut flour.

I’ve really grown to love coconut flour lately because it is so much more affordable than almond flour.  I know some people do not like the taste of coconut flour, so almond flour instructions are provided!

    I do not like eggs or things that taste eggy so I only added an egg yolk then a tablespoon of heavy cream in lieu of one entire egg. This made the best mug cake I’ve ever had, including full sugar/full flour/full carbs mug cake!

    This was very good, but I realized afterwards that 2TBS of Swerve is TWENTY FOUR carbs. I damn near died. I can’t believe I ate that. 😭 There are 4 carbs in a TSP and 3 TSP is a TBS. On top of the coconut flour, this is just way off- and I made the vanilla flavor. It would,have been worse had I did the chocolate. Where did you get your calories/carbs from? Almost all of them came from the swerve and the red mill organic coconut flour. An egg only has 1 carb, and there’s nothing in the vanilla (at least mine) or baking powder.
