Keto Mug Brownie Ingredients: 

Dry Ingredients: 

  • 1 tablespoon blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon dutch process cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 large egg

Keto Mug Brownie Instructions:

  1. Melt butter first. If it's too hot to add with the egg it will have time to cool
  2. In a coffee mug or bowl add all your dry ingredients
  3. Grab butter and crack and egg. Using a fork or small whisk mix your dry and wet together until smooth and lump free
  4. Add in chocolate chips now if you're using them. I didn't list an amount so use or don't use what you'd like
  5. Microwave for 1 minute to be fully cooked or less to have an undercooked center. Serve!


Dutch Process Cocoa vs Cocoa Powder

There is a difference here in the two. Both have their place but when making baked goods such as this the rich chocolate flavor is associated with dutch process cocoa. You just wont get it from plain cocoa powder. Cocoa powder works great in frostings and such but doesn’t stand well in baked goods. That’s my personal opinion of course.
You can swap them if you’d like but you will get a different tasting keto mug brownie in the end.
