Keto Chocolate Muffin in a Mug Recipe

Chocolate makes everything a little better doesn’t it?

I’m always on the hunt for chocolate snacks that satisfy with my sweet tooth without overloading me on the sugar!


Note: If you didn’t know, I have struggled with Gestational Diabetes with each of my pregnancies, here’s some info on how I beat it naturally!


Given my history and just being honest with myself, if I don’t find sweet things (with chocolate hopefully!) that is satisfying I’m going to end up chowing down on cookies or ice cream.


Thankfully I have a new favorite (and SIMPLE) recipe!


Check out my recipe for a 1-Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug!




Here’s the Recipe Breakdown:



1 Egg
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder (I prefer an Aluminum Free option if possible)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of almond butter (try to stick with unsweetened if possible!)
1 packer of stevia sweetener (my preferred no calorie sweetener)


  1. Grease a large mug (I usually recommend Coconut Oil)
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute on high

And that’s it!


I’m simple, yummy, and has almost no sugar (and a little protein from the egg!)


What’s your go to healthy snack?

  1. Love the simplicity of the recipe! And congratulations on the little one on the way! You will love having 3 kiddos. Your heart will be soooooo full?????

    • Hey Jenna!

      Peanut Butter will work fine! I often use almond butter because I was cautious with peanuts when my kiddos were really young (and I know many people have allergies!). I do find it harder to find an “unsweetened” type peanut butter for whatever reason, so keep that in mind if you are trying to minimize your sugar intake!

      Let me know how it turns out!

    • Hi Kathy!

      I’ve never tried to calculate it (and I usually don’t encourage people to get too caught up counting carbs or calories). Given that there is no added sugar and using unsweetened ingredients it shouldn’t be much!

      If you make it or figure out a number yourself please share it with us!
