In case you are missing cake and chocolate chip cookies on the keto diet, I’ve developed a keto chocolate chip mug cake just for you! This easy sugar free mug cake is a vanilla cake base with keto chocolate chips mixed in. It tastes like you are eating a cookie cake.

The best part - it’s very easy to make and you can bake up a single serve keto cake in less than two minutes! All of the ingredients for this portion controlled cake are added to a mug or ramekin and baked in the microwave so you can be enjoying your keto chocolate chip cake in no time!

Sugar Free Chocolate Chips

The chocolate chips used in this keto mug cake recipe are sugar-free. There are many companies coming out with sugar-free chocolate chips and you can often find them in the baking section at the grocery store, especially if you have a Whole Foods or natural grocery store.

My favorite brand of sugar-free chocolate chips is ChocZero. Their keto chocolate chips are also sugar alcohol free so if you are the type of person that gets an upset stomach from sugar alcohols, you don’t have to worry about that with these low carb chocolate chips.

I love using these chips too because they melt within the baked good. I’ve baked with other brands of sugar-free chocolate chips that don’t melt when baked. I like it when the chip is slightly melted.

Keto Cake Made in a Mug

Mug cakes earned their name because all the ingredients for a cake are mixed together in a mug and baked in the same mug. Traditionally mug cakes are baked in the microwave for about a minute.

I prefer to use a ramekin to bake my mug cake in. It bakes the cake more evenly than a mug does. Plus it looks prettier. Always remember to coat the mug or ramekin with cooking oil spray before filling the vessel with cake batter so it doesn’t stick to the sides of the mug.

How to Cook Mug Cake in the Oven

Most mug cakes are baked in microwave because it’s easier and you can bake your cake quickly. However, if you don’t have a microwave or don’t like to use them, you can still make keto mug cakes. Just bake them in the oven! Bake the mug cakes in an oven safe dish, like a ramekin, at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until cake is set in the middle.

My favorite topping to put on this keto chocolate chip mug cake is homemade whipped cream. It’s light and fluffy and melts perfectly when dolloped onto the warm, freshly baked sugar-free cake.

Other options are sugar-free syrup or melted chocolate. You could also serve this keto mug cake with a side of your favorite low carb ice cream too.
