Low-Carb Mug Cake

Good morning friends!  I teased you all yesterday with a glimpse at my afternoon snack creation (& today’s breakfast) of a low-carb mug cake!  So, without further ado, I give you this very simple, tasty, low-carb (only 1.5 net carbs), gluten-free, keto friendly, fiber & protein-packed mug cake ~


Serves: 1




  1. In a large mug or small bowl, whisk together 3 egg whites, liquid stevia, & the flaxseed meal.  
  2. Next, whisk in the baking powder & then LET IT SIT for about a minute or a bit more. The mixture will puff up & get really fluffy, this is when you know it’ll be ready to cook.
  3. Place the mug or bowl in the microwave & cook for about 1 minute (time may vary depending on bowl and/or microwave power).
  4. Let the mug cake cool slightly (it’ll probably be very puffy, but will shrink down some), then remove from the microwave & top with a bit of melted coconut butter & a dash of cinnamon.  That’s it!  Enjoy!  🙂

  1. I don’t have a microwave to do this! 🙁 Could I steam it or cook it on the stove instead? Would that work the same?

    • Hmm… I would think you could put it in a small pot on the stove & slowly cook it, maybe on medium/medium low heat until it puffs up, then reduce the heat & let it cool.
