Prep Time5 minsCook Time2 minsTotal Time7 mins
Ingredients
 1 egg
 ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
 ¼ cup chocolate protein powder
 2 tbsp heavy cream
 2 tbsp erythritol
 2 tbsp MCT oil powder
 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ¼ tsp baking soda
 1 pinch salt
 optional: 1 tbsp chopped macadamia nuts (for garnish)
Directions
1

In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream with a whisk until stiff peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.

2

Gently fold in the erythritol. Set aside in the refrigerator until needed.

3

Sift the protein powder, MCT oil powder, baking soda, and salt into a mixing bowl.

4

In a blender, pulse the almond milk, vanilla extract, egg, and cocoa powder until smooth. While whisking, pour the almond milk mixture into the dry ingredients and continue to whisk until smooth.

5

Gently fold this mixture into the sweetened whipped cream.

6

Pour the batter into a 16-ounce or larger mug, leaving at least 2 inches of space at the top. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 1 minute.

7

Remove from the microwave and carefully lift off the plastic wrap (it will be hot, so be careful not to get a steam burn).

8

Place the mug back in the microwave, uncovered, and microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

9

Top your keto mug cake with chopped nuts (if desired) and serve hot.
