Keto Chocolate Coconut Mug Cake

11 ratings

Delicious, chocolatey and topped with toasted coconut and a sweet glaze...this cake will surely satisfy your sweet tooth! Feel free to make the glaze with whole milk or alternative dairy milk instead of water. You can also use vanilla extract if you don't have coconut extract.

      I thought It was great plenty of Cho. Flavor and texture from the coconut. I think I’ll try cutting back on the sweetener next time and see how it is.

        I have a different brand of sweetener and I T was much better than the 4 T it called for. Topped it with a squirter of whipped cream and it hit the spot fir those sweet chocolate cravings!

          🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟This mug cake is delicious and satisfied my sugar craving (new to keto). It filling as well. The coconut flakes add texture and taste. It’s a perfect keto comfort food. ✨Only 5 net carbs and absolutely delicious! I made this three days into my keto journey at the end of the day. I loved it so much that I read the reviews and noticed the controversy on if it was keto friendly or not. Reading the response review and then learning how to apply it (total carbs - fiber - sugar alcohol = net carbs) made all the difference. Thanks!

              It looks good and I haven't tried it but what I don't understand is why use so much sweetener...

                Substitute the 4T to 1T; they are all too sweet. all the premium recipes.

              These macros can't be right. 52g total carbs and 5g net? Total carbs are usually 2-2 1/2 times net carbs. If CM calculated the total carbs, this is not even keto and should be avoided. Waaaay too many carbs to even be called low carb.

                It is 5 net carbs. If you look closely, there's a heck of a lot of sugar alcohol you have to subtract as well. Remember, total carbs - fiber - sugar alcohol = net carbs

              52 carbs? That’s almost total 3 day carb intake for me. How is this low carb? Compared to a regular cake yes but not diet friendly

              It was good without the glaze to cut down on calories. Thanks for the recipe

                Wonderfully delicious! I undercooked it slightly and enjoyed the opposite of a hot lava cake. I had a cupcake surrounded by warm frosting! OMG so satisfying ❤️
