Having a healthy mug cake recipe on hand has been a lifesaver for me, and many of you guys too! It can often be so tempting to want a slice of cake, but that will involve baking more than one serving, and the temptation is often starring as in the face. One slice turns to another slice and then before we can do a double take, the entire cake is gone!
Mug cakes, being a single serving, is perfect for portion control. I mean, I even compiled a list over 20 healthy mug cake recipes!

Healthy 1 Minute Keto Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe
When I say this recipe takes one minute, I’m not kidding.
You simply throw your ingredients into a large mug or cereal bowl and microwave it for a minute and voila- You have your healthy chocolate fix.
The best part about the time it takes it to make this keto chocolate mug cake is that because it is eggless, you can undercook it and be left with a gooey chocolate cake or bake it under it is tender and cakey.
A ceramic cereal bowl is preferable over a mug, purely because it has greater depth, which avoids any potential overflow! Otherwise, a deep even-sized mug works well too (ensure it is even-sized, otherwise certain bits will be overcooked/undercooked).
I understand not everyone owns a microwave, nor feels comfortable using one and that is completely fine! This keto chocolate mug cake can be made in a toaster oven or traditional oven.
Simply preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease an oven-safe dish (I used a 10-inch ramekin) and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until your desired consistency is reached!
Just be wary that oven temperatures differ, so it’s best to continually check up on it from the 8-minute mark. Remember, because of the condensed space the cake is in, it will continue to cook until removed from it!
While this health chocolate mug cake makes a healthy snack, you can easily batch prep 4-5 and freeze them for quick grab-and-go snacks, especially topped with some peanut butter!
