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!

    The vanilla version was delicious. I added a dollop of homemade unsweetened whipped cream and some cinnamon.
    Wonderful for keto! Thank you.

    Me again…as mentioned I’ve been playing with the recipe. Today I used coconut flour and subbed the vanilla extract for almond extract. Y’ALL! It was amazing. Thanks to such a simple and delicious recipe, it’s so easy to give myself options by changing the extract flavor and topping with a few berries to stay in my macros. Jennifer thank you!!! I’m working my way through your recipes but this is a staple because I always have a sweet tooth! 😊 Next flavor will be lemon (saw a lemon extract) followed by orange. THANK YOU!

    This is so, so good! I just made it for the 5th time since I found this recipe about 2 weeks ago. It’s my go to sweet-tooth recipe now! I do the cocoa with almond flour, no added chips. I do love it with sugar free whipped cream on top.

    I am new to Keto and this was delicious. I only had liquid stevia on hand and 3/4 tsp seemed to work well. Do you know how many net carbs are in the almond flour chocolate mug recipe? I was figuring 3, but wanted to ask.

    Love it, I did the vanilla version with some blueberries and splashed just a bit of heavy cream on the top. So good.

    This was wonderful! Thank you! I made the vanilla version with coconut flour. I used just a little over 1tbsp of the erythritol/monk fruit sweetener blend I have on hand, but after it cooked I added a small pat of butter on the top, and sprinkled on a bit of the sweetener blend. Awesome!!

    OH. EM. GEE. I made the vanilla version (I could probably add more vanilla next time) but this is AWESOME! I topped it with a teaspoon of peanut butter and it was amazing! I’ll be playing with this base and adding a few blueberries and strawberries for breakfast. I have been looking up mug cakes and they all have some random obscure ingredient that I don’t have. These are AMAZING and so simple!!! THANK YOU!!!

    Holy cow! I just tried the vanilla version-with some slices of peach on top. (I “needed” peach cobbler! 😆) Really great!! Thanks!

    Just ate a chocolate one now. I’m bad!! I made it with coconut flour and baked it for 67 seconds, a few seconds too long. I used almond flour for the vanilla ones and had to bake them for a few more than the 60 seconds called for. Still better than the other chocolate mug cake I tried.

    I have a confession to make. I made the vanilla mug cake this morning and ate it. Just now I mixed up another one and set it in the fridge for later. I put a few choc chips on the one earlier and I’m going to put a few on this one with a dab of crushed, unsweetened strawberries. I have to say this is the best mug cake I’ve had to date. Hope I can wait for another hour or so.

    Easy and so so tasty! I subbed MCT oil for the butter, turned out just fine 🙂

    Can you please let me know how you calculate only 3g carbs for this cake? After devouring it, I calculated the ingredients and, because of the erythritol, came to a ridiculous 27g 🙁 Please tell me it’s only 3g of carbs!

      Erythritol is a sugar alcohol so you deduct that from the carb count.

    1/8 tsp baking soda for powder
    Dash of cinnamon-cuz ❤️

    I’ve been looking for a vanilla cake so when I stumbled on this I thought I would give it a try. It really came out good! I topped it with mashed strawberries and whipped cream. So delicious.
