Keto Pecan Pie Flavoring

In this recipe, I use Maple Pecan Syrup by ChocZero ChocZero syrups are full of flavor and are keto friendly. They contain no sugars or sugar alcohols. I love using them in many of my keto baking recipes.

If you don’t want to bother with ChocZero syrup, substitute the syrup with 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and 1/4 teaspoon of pecan extract.

Mugs for a Mug Cake

Traditionally mug cakes are mixed together in a mug and then baked in the same mug in the microwave for a minute or two. I like to transer my mug cake to a pretty ramekin or I’ll just mix it together in a large ramekin. This recipe will make two pecan pie mug cakes if using a 6 oz ramekin. Remember to coat the mug or ramekin with cooking spray before filling the mug cake so it doesn’t stick to the sides.

If you don’t have a microwave or don’t like to use them, you can still make keto pecan pie mug cakes. 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.

Optional Toppings for Keto Pecan Pie Mug Cake

Keto pecan pie mug cake is absolutely delicious without additional toppings; however, I highly recommend you add a dollup of whipped cream on top or a scoop of keto friendly ice cream.

  1. I would like to see total carbs on recipes. I am on a very strict 20gram total carb. Insulin resistant and overweight. I have lost over 30 pounds and off one med following the 20 total carb program. I just recently found your channel and enjoy it a great deal. Thank you!

  2. This is delicious! I made these in 4 small ramekins. I needed about 50% more topping to cover all 4 small cakes. I had most ingredients on hand already. These were easy to assemble, too. We enjoyed a warm dessert within just a few minutes.

  3. Just made this. I’m a beginner but I’ve tried a few mug cakes and holy cow this was unbelievable. You know it’s good when even non-keto dieters cant get enough (made one for my very picky foodie roommate). Thank you!! P.s. love your YT channel as well!

  4. This is an excellent recipe!! I made a delicious desert for my husband and I in less than 30 minutes.
