Chocolate Keto Mug Cake (Paleo, Dairy Free, Nut Free)

I’ve been keeping this squeaky clean, chocolate keto mug cake in my back pocket for a while.  My hope was to make a recipe video for it and debut it once I re-introduced eggs, stevia, and cacao from my AIP Keto Reset. But re-intro’s have been crazy. Life has been crazy. Amazing- but crazy. Announcing my new book crazy. Oh yeah, I wrote a dairy + nut free keto paleo cookbook. Made Whole. Check it out HERE.

So! I’m posting this chocolate keto mug cake recipe now. Why? Because you deserve it! It’s easy to make. Dairy free, nut free an totally delish. Bonus it serves two. The perfect treat to whip up with your honey while you Netflix and Chill.


Mug Matters 

So technically they’re not mug cakes because I used 6 ounce Pyrex ramekins. But I mean… you microwave them, so yeah, mug cake. You simply mix up the ingredients in a small bowl and distribute evenly among the ramekins. Nuke and presto!

However, you can add the mix to a large mug, you know the one you use when you’re only having “one cup of coffee” but it’s actually the size of your face. That one. And double the cooking time.


A tad bit of coconut flour to thicken. A good amount of anti-oxidant cacao (or carob powder). Large eggs, for binding, fluffy factor and protein. Coconut milk and coconut oil for fat. Stevia glycerite, my preferred kind (taste best and it’s better quality). Baking soda. Pinch of salt. Splash of vanilla.

These chocolate keto mug cakes aren’t eggy or spongy and they taste like real cake, without the sugar overload.

Keto Chocolate Mug Cake

  • Author: Cristina Curp
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 1
  • Total Time: 6 minutes
  • Yield: 2


  • 1 ½ tablespoons coconut flour
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine Himalayan salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for greasing
  • 30-40 drops Stevia Glyceride
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream, from a chilled coconut milk can


  1. In a small bowl combine the coconut flour, cacao powder, baking soda and salt. Stir with a fork to combine.
  2. Add in the eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, stevia and vanilla. Mix with the fork until fully combined. If the eggs are cold the coconut oil might clump up- that’s okay.
  3. Lightly grease your ramekins then pour in the cake mix half in each ramekin. Place them in the microwave and cook for 1 minutes.
  4. You can also make these in the oven, 350F for 15 minutes or until done.
  5. Place a tablespoon of coconut cream on each mini cake and dig in!

  1. you mentioned trying a flax version when you reintro seeds somewhere on social media. I will be all about that! (and I’m still holding out hope that someday eggs stop disagreeing with me so i can eat ALL your recipes)

    1. Yes! I will soon! However, I suspect I would work, even without trying. You could always add a spoonful of sunflower seed butter too. Seed and/or nut butter become very dough-like when cooked!

  2. i’ve checked in here a few times, and each time i saw that scoop of what i now know is coconut cream on the top, i thought, “why did she put a poached egg on top of her cake?!” is it just me, or do you see a yellow tinge on that first picture?

    hope things are going smoothly for your transition from paradise to politico central. and congrats on your book!!!

  3. Any idea how much stevia to use if you’re using the powder instead of liquid? The kind i have is typically a 1-1 replacement for regular sugar.
