I am creeping up on 550 days of living a low-carb lifestyle. Cutting sugar has tamed my sweet tooth quite a bit, but it is still there. Dessert remains one of my favorite times of the day.

Having quick and easy dessert recipes for one, like keto chocolate mug cake, keeps me on track and satisfied. I never feel deprived on the keto diet when I make delicious replacements for treats like cake.

The Best Keto Dessert Option

Keto mug cake is the best low-carb dessert for so many reasons. It’s portion-controlled, quick and easy to make, and relatively hard to mess up.

This chocolate keto mug cake recipe uses even fewer ingredients than typical mug cake thanks to Naked Keto Fat Bomb powder (affiliate link). It’s also the best tasting mug cake I’ve tried to date. The flavor and texture of the cake are on point!

Keto During Chaos

I’ll be honest, I questioned if I should post this keto mug cake recipe during these strange times. Right now, there are a million reasons to throw any type of diet out the window.

In fact, we cheated a couple of times with some heavy carb meals. The consequences were pretty immediate and I was reminded why I chose to cut carbs in the first place.

The bottom line is that I, personally, feel best when I avoid sugar. Mentally and physically I can handle stressful situations better when I eat healthy fats, a moderate amount of protein, and low carbs.

I was chatting with another person on the keto diet about staying low-carb during the chaos. She said, “My food choices are about the only thing I can control right now,” and that made so much sense to me.

Having said that, it’s also the time for comfort foods, like cake! Using one of the many shelf-stable keto products, like Naked Keto Fat Bomb powder, you can whip up a tasty chocolate dessert in minutes.

Naked Keto Fat Bomb Powder

As the name suggests, Naked Nutrition, is eager to bare it all. No fancy packaging or crazy ingredients to confuse you. The company’s mission is to shorten the steps between their farms and you.

Chocolate Naked Keto has seven ingredients clearly labeled on the tub. It contains powdered sunflower oil, powdered MCT oil, cacao, sea salt, vanilla extract, stevia, and monk fruit.

The one ingredient I questioned was powdered sunflower oil. Naked Nutrition anticipated this concern and wrote all about it here. If you want to know the benefits of MCT oil, there’s also a helpful article here.

Find many more helpful articles and even keto fat bomb recipes on the Naked Nutrition website. Okay, on to this moist and tasty mug cake (sorry, the “M” word is necessary here.)

If you’d rather use almond flour, see the recipe card.

The fat bomb powder provides enough sweetness and flavor that no additional sweeteners are needed and the vanilla extract is optional.

Mug cakes are meant to be incredibly quick and easy. The little bowls of ingredients you see here are strictly for this post. On a normal day, I toss the ingredients in to dirty as few dishes as possible! Keep it simple unless you are tracking your macros heavily.

Random, but do not let your fork sit in the mug cake while it’s cooling. It’s like a hot poker to the mouth if you do so!
