If you crave a quick low carb dessert, this keto chocolate mug cake is here for you and ready in 90 seconds.

Try this rich and chocolatey mug cake that can also be paleo friendly. Just replace the whipping cream with coconut milk (the canned one), and it turns out perfectly. If you prefer, use coconut sugar instead of erythritol.

You’ll see that instead of wheat flour I use cocoa powder and coconut flour.

The mug cake has a fluffy texture, and you can have this dessert even if you have an allergy to almonds. On top of that, coconut flour is way cheaper and has fewer net carbs than almond flour.
