Who said you can’t have the cake and eat it too?
With this apple cinnamon keto mug cake, you definitely can!It’s so moist and comforting… it’s definitely one of my favorites and I made quite a few ketogenic mug cakes in my life!

You might be wondering how this apple mug cake can be ketogenic if it contains real apples but my answer regarding stuff like this is always the same: you can have “non-ketogenic” foods if you don’t overdo it.

You can eat everything you want but you have to account for it.
My secret for this ketogenic apple pie mug cake?
There’s only enough apple in there to make it taste like apple pie but not enough to kick you out of ketosis.

While this cinnamon apple pie mug cake is definitely one of my higher carb ones, it’s still super low carb with only 4.9g net carbs per serving!
That’s only a tiny bit more than most of my other mug cakes and still super low carb!

CINNAMON APPLE PIE KETO MUG CAKE INGREDIENTS:

 2 tbsp (16g) finely ground almond flour
 2 tbsp (28g) erythritol
 1 tbsp (15ml) melted butter or coconut oil
 1 tbsp (15ml) unsweetened almond milk
 ½ tsp (gluten-free) baking powder
 1 egg
 ¼ (approx. 40g or 1.4oz) apple, shredded
 optional: powdered erythritol for decoration

Instructions: Microwave

1. Grate half of your apple piece.

Chop the other half into small cubes.
Mix all of the remaining ingredients except for the powdered erythritol in a small mug or bowl that’s oven- or microwave safe.
Whisk until you get a smooth and chunk-free dough.

2. Grease your microwave-safe mug with a cooking oil that doesn’t have a strong taste (I usually use coconut oil or melted butter).
3. Add your cake batter into a mug (the mug should be at least double the size of the mixed ingredients).
4. Microwave for about 60-90 seconds.(The cooking time in your microwave may vary heavily because of a different microwave or settings used – I recommend baking your mug cake for a shorter time period (60 seconds) first and continue baking for a few more seconds if needed. (To avoid dryness.)You can test if your mug cake is completely cooked by pricking the center with a toothpick – if it comes out “clean” it’s ready!
5. Optional: Sprinkle a bit of powdered erythritol on top of your mug cake.

Serve warm or cold as a delicious keto snack!

Instructions: Oven

6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180°C).
7. Follow the same steps as above. Bake your mug cake for about 10-15 minutes. You can test if your mug cake is completely cooked by pricking the center with a toothpick – if it comes out “clean” it’s ready!
8. Optional: Sprinkle a bit of powdered erythritol on top of your mug cake.

Serve warm or cold as a delicious keto snack!
