Single serving desserts are brilliant, especially when you’re trying to keep the treats in the house to a minimum!

When I made this cherry almond mug cake I really thought I would go crazy with different flavor combinations because the options are endless.  Mug cakes are ity-bity, cute as can be, tasty desserts, and it only takes less than 5 minutes to make!

It didn’t take long for my mug cake excitement to die down though, and it’s not because my sweet tooth took a siesta.  NEVER!  I just got side tracked to try different treats like these chocolate dipped oranges and individual pavlova nests!

Now that I’m experimenting with more low carb recipes my interest has peaked once again.

Baking low carb is tricky, because the ratios of the liquid to dry ingredients vary depending on the flour alternative used.  For this recipe I used both almond and coconut flours combined with a whole egg, almond milk, plus a nice dose of flavorful spices!

Next time I plan on experimenting with ground flax or chia seeds!  I was too full to taste test another batch (can you imagine if this was a whole cake?!).

This Low Carb Carrot Cake Mug Cake (say that 10 times fast) is only 6 carbs (without whipped cream), and 9 grams of protein!  No wonder it’s filling!

Keep this single serving cake in mind the next time you’re looking for a dessert just for one!  Top with fresh whipped cream or add a scoop of ice cream for an extra decadent dessert!

    I needed a treat last night and this would have been perfect. It’s amazing how much protein and how little carbs you packed into that little mug. Also, then I don’t have a whole cake to gorge on! Brilliant!

      No clean up either, except for making sure every bite is gone!
