This keto mug brownie recipe is quick, easy, and most importantly, delicious.
Made with almond flour, and cocoa powder, and sweetened with a sugar substitute, this mug brownie is the perfect low-carb and gluten-free dessert.
- 2 tablespoons of almond flour
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar substitute (such as stevia or erythritol)
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- In a large mug, combine almond flour, cocoa powder, and sugar substitute.
- Add in the egg and melted butter, followed by the vanilla extract and salt. Mix everything together until well combined.
- Microwave the mug for 60-90 seconds, or until the brownie is set.
- Allow the brownie to cool for a minute before removing it from the mug and digging in!
- Almond flour: If you’re allergic to nuts, you can use coconut flour instead. However, keep in mind that the texture may be slightly different.
- Sugar substitute: If you don’t have a sugar substitute on hand, you can use regular sugar. But that will not make it keto. So use erythritol or monk sweetener.
- Butter: If you’re looking for a dairy-free option, you can use coconut oil instead.
- Add in some nuts or chocolate chips for a crunchy texture.
- Top with a scoop of low-carb ice cream for an extra special treat.
- Use different spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg for a unique twist.
- Large mug
- Mixing spoon
- This mug brownie is best enjoyed fresh and warm, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
- To reheat, simply pop the mug brownie in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.
- To ensure that the mug brownie comes out perfectly, make sure to mix all of the ingredients together very well before microwaving.
- It’s important to keep in mind that microwave cooking times can vary based on the strength of your microwave. Keep an eye on the mug brownie while it’s cooking to make sure it doesn’t overcook or burn.
- Make sure to let the mug brownie cool for a minute before removing it from the mug to avoid any burns.
