This Atkins diet recipe mug cake is my new lo-carb replacement for traditional coffee cake. Made with both almond & coconut flours makes it high in protein plus the added benefit of low in carbs. I eat mug muffins, cakes and breads all the time. Simply put, this mug cake recipe is awesome and I treat myself by pouring on some monk fruit sweetened syrup (my favorite is the fruity raspberry) because it has no carbs, no calories and no sugar!
Goodbye fattening coffee cake – Hello, mug cake!
Mug cakes and breads are so fast & easy to make when cooking for one and, in the recipe, I use my favorite sweetener, Lankato, sugar-free, zero net carbs, zero calorie, zero glycemic sweetener, which I prefer over Sucralose. The Atkins diet has long been built upon the use of Sucralose, but I do not recommend it.
I whip everything up in one coffee mug, microwave for 1 to 1/2 minutes and fold onto a plate for a quick morning breakfast, afternoon snack or even at bedtime! You can even change the shape by making it in a bowl!
2 tbsps Almond Meal Flour
1/3 tbsp Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour
1 teaspoon Lankato, sugar-free sweetener
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
1/8 tsp Salt
1 large Egg
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pour oil into a mug and swish it around to coat the sides (or use spray coconut oil).
Break an egg into the mug and swirl with a fork.
Add all dry ingredients. Stir to combine.
Microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minute. Use a knife if necessary to help remove the muffin from the cup, slice, butter, eat.
Your Atkins mug cake can be toasted once it’s cooked and topped with cream cheese if you like. Replace the cinnamon with other spices, sugar-free syrup or 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa (net carb count will be .2g higher). Add a tablespoon of sour cream for a moister cake.
