If you are just starting Keto and you were a sugar, chocolate addict like I was then pin this recipe because it will be your lifeline. It was mine! Anytime I needed something sweet or chocolatey this was the jam. With only a 5 minute prep and a 90-second cook time, immediacy was everything when a craving hit in my early days of keto. I used to get so good that I'd remember the measurements by heart. Try this keto dessert for a special night or celebration or really anytime the occasion called for it.
For my version I decided to use egg whites because it still combined the ingredients well but offered a less eggy taste. I mean who wants to taste an eggy chocolate cake.
If you want to be adventurous, stop the microwave at 30 seconds remaining and stick a piece Lily's dark chocolate bar in the center of your cake (which will still be a little wet). Then quickly turn the microwave back on to finish the cooking. This will get you a yummy lava-cake version that oozes melted chocolate when you cut into the cake.
After its been microwave, gently invert the mug over a plate to garnish with a few more chocolate chips or a dusting of powdered swerve and some raspberries! This is a great single-serving side that appease any sweet tooth.
2 tablespoons Kerrygold butter, melted
3 tablespoon almond flour
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sweetener (I like allulose)
3 tablespoons liquid egg whites
Pinch of salt
Lily's dark chocolate chips
