4. Low Carb Peanut Butter Mug Cake
How do you feel about peanut butter when it comes to the ketogenic diet? It certainly isn’t an everyday food since it’s really heavy, but there are definitely health benefits of occasional consumption!
For example, it can help you lose weight since you will be left with a feeling of being full after eating peanut butter. Of course, this part is not correct if you are not moderate and forget about the caloric value of this tasty ingredient.
Secondly, peanut butter is full of healthy fats that come as a base of the keto diet. It is a rich source of potassium, fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, and antioxidants. By that, it decreases the risk of blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. It can also become an inevitable part of your diet if you train since it’s rich in protein as well.
In the end, peanut butter is a great energy booster that will help you productively start and go on with your day!

5. Keto Cinnamon Mug Cake with Almond Flour
Any cinnamon lovers out there? We found a perfect breakfast for you! This keto mug cake will help you kick off your day and will be an excellent addition to your morning coffee.
This recipe also contains six ingredients only: eggs, almond flour (or almond meal), low-carb crystal sweetener, coconut oil, baking soda, and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Do you perhaps have a habit of adding baking soda instead of baking powder?
I must admit I use it for plenty of things that are not related to cooking such as cleaning my bathroom, body or face peeling, cleaning hands, occasional brushing my teeth, etc. Other than that, it’s also great for consumption because of its neutralizing effect, bringing the body’s pH to balance, improving kidney function, and many more things.

6. Keto Coconut Mug Cake
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our coconut lovers as well! Here we have a light snack you can have for breakfast, brunch, or any other time of the day when you need something small and sweet that will boost your energy!
Shredded coconut is a great addition to your keto snacks because it is light and beneficial for your health. In other words, it contains some valuable nutrients such as iron, dietary fiber, and zinc. Still, because of 29 g of total fats it contains happened to be saturated, coconut should definitely be consumed occasionally.
The same rule applies for plenty of other keto ingredients as well – no matter how good they might be for your health, make sure to go with a diversified diet. In other words, foods like coconut, peanut butter & others shouldn’t be consumed on an everyday basis.

7. Sugar-free Lemon Mug Cake
While creating this list, we decided to dig for interesting, delicious, and most of all, various keto mug cake flavors. This type of recipe is certainly not the most common one, but there are still plenty of lemon-delicacies lovers who are looking for a tasty dessert that will satisfy their sweet tooth. Well, search no more, your perfect snack is here!
I must admit I was never a big fan of lemon delicacies. As a kid, lemon-flavored ice cream was never something I would choose before chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, or some other similar flavors. As a matter of fact, the lemon cheesecake was the first dessert I’ve tried after long years of avoiding lemon in anything besides juice.
That’s when it all started and, finally, ended with recipes like this cute mug cake! Well, it doesn’t have to be an end – do you have some of your own delicious lemon-cake ideas you would like to share?

As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I need to get these lovely heart-shaped mugs to make my little cakes even cuter! Try to find them on Amazon because a dessert from the photo will definitely bring a smile to the face of your loved ones.
Other than that, let’s focus a bit more on tahini, a valuable ingredient we haven’t mentioned a lot in our previous recipes. Tahini is a spread made of ground sesame seeds as well as a pretty good option when it comes to keto-friendly foods. Sesame seeds can be used as a topping for baked goods such as hamburger buns, part of your smoothies, or amongst many other various low-carb meals.
28 g of these seeds contain 5 g of protein, 13 g of fat, 5 g of fiber, and 2 g of net carbs. The fact this amount contains 160 calories also makes it a nice occasional addition to your recipes – the same as with this one. Let us know how you like it in the combination with chocolate!

9. Chocolate Brownie Gluten Free Mug Cake
Well, why not finish our list with something similar to the first recipe from our list? In other words, hold on, another chocolate treat is on its way! This little brownie will be a perfect choice for a lazy afternoon, especially if you top it with a little bit of whipped cream or some sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
You can also add some pecans or something similar because you know nuts are always a great choice – they will both keep you full for a longer time and provide you with plenty of fatty acids your body needs as a daily fuel.
Maybe you want to choose some berries or other keto-friendly fruits instead? There are certainly many options you can go with to sweeten your cake just the way you prefer!
