Swerve: Swerve is a sugar substitute that is made from a combination of erythritol and oligosaccharides. It has zero calories and is a popular sweetener in keto and low-carb recipes. In this recipe, you can use any other sweetener instead like Stevia.

It has a glycemic index of zero, which means it does not affect blood sugar levels. Swerve can be used as a replacement for sugar in many recipes.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a popular oil in keto and low-carb diets as it is high in healthy fats and has numerous health benefits. It is also a great substitute for butter or vegetable oil in many recipes. Coconut oil is high in healthy fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs can be easily converted into ketones, which can be used by the body for energy. Coconut oil may also have antibacterial and antiviral properties.

  • Top it off: Scatter 1 tablespoon of sugar-free chocolate chips on top of the batter, which add some extra sweetness and melt into gooey pockets of chocolate. You can also use chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or berries for some variation.
  • Microwave magic: Microwave your mug cake for about 1-2 minutes, depending on your microwave’s power. Watch it carefully, as it should puff up and set, but still be slightly gooey in the center. Mine takes exactly 90 seconds in my microwave.

This mug cake is a delicious and easy dessert or snack that you can enjoy anytime. Here are some ideas on how to serve and store your keto brownie mug cake:

  • Serve it hot: This mug cake is best enjoyed warm, as it has the most fudgy and gooey texture. You can top it with some whipped cream or whipped coconut cream for some extra creaminess.

FAQs about Fudgy Brownie in a Mug (Flourless, Gluten-Free, and Sugar-Free)

Q: Can I use almond flour or coconut flour instead of cocoa powder?

A: No, I don’t recommend using almond flour or coconut flour instead of cocoa powder, as they have different properties and will change the texture and flavor of the mug cake. Cocoa powder is essential for giving the mug cake a rich, chocolatey taste and a fudgy, brownie-like texture. If you use almond flour or coconut flour, you will end up with a dry, crumbly, and bland mug cake.

Q: Can I use a different sweetener than Swerve?

A: Yes, you can use a different sweetener than Swerve, as long as it is keto-friendly and has a similar sweetness level. You can use erythritol, monk fruit, stevia, or allulose, for example. However, you may need to adjust the amount depending on the type and brand of sweetener you use. Start with the same amount as Swerve and taste the batter before microwaving. You can add more or less sweetener to suit your preference.

Q: How can I make this mug cake vegan or dairy-free?

A: You can make this mug cake vegan or dairy-free by replacing the egg with a flax egg or a chia egg. To make a flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 10 minutes until it becomes gel-like. To make a chia egg, mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 10 minutes until it becomes gel-like. Then, use the flax egg or the chia egg instead of the regular egg in the recipe. You can also use vegan or dairy-free chocolate chips if you want.

Q: Can I make this mug cake in the oven or on the stovetop?

A: Yes, you can make this mug cake in the oven or on the stovetop, but it will take longer and require more equipment. To make it in the oven, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a small oven-safe ramekin or dish. Follow the same steps as the microwave version, but bake the mug cake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. To make it on the stovetop, heat a small non-stick skillet over low-medium heat and grease it lightly. Follow the same steps as the microwave version, but cook the mug cake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is slightly gooey. Cover the skillet with a lid to trap the steam and help the mug cake rise.
