Low Carb Chocolate Muffin ... in a mug ... Microwave or Oven-Bake


How about grabbing your favourite mug and whipping up these super quick and easy low carb (keto) chocolate muffins. They are a gluten and dairy-free treat, and when microwaved can be ready in five minutes. No microwave? No problem because you can bake them in the oven as well, use a muffin pan instead of a mug!

Ingredients:
Serves Two
2 tbsp. almond flour or hazelnut flour
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. erythritol (sweetener - optional)
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1 egg
1½ tbsp. melted coconut oil or butter
½ oz. sugar-free dark chocolate

½ tsp coconut oil or butter for greasing the mugs
Recipe instructions and tips:
Can be found here


If you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here
