I have such a soft spot for mug cakes! They can be prepared so quickly (usually with no mess!) and are ready to eat in just a few minutes. Warm, soft, yummy cake! I also think it's a great way to manage portion control if you bake a whole big cake, you just *know* you're going to have more than one serving!

If you're unsure about some of the ingredients don't be! Flaxseed meal is super low in carbs (but high in fiber!) and adds a nuttiness to the cake. The cake is sweetened with a sugar free syrup. You can either make your own simple syrup or it can be bought from somewhere like Netrition (I like the Da Vinci brand) and comes in loads of different flavors! I use the plain one here and it has SO many uses! Just make sure you buy from their sugar free range.

Please note that an alternative sweetener like liquid stevia can be used instead, but the quantity will have to be reduced and additional water added to ensure a good consistency of the final cake.

How to Make a Low Carb Cinnamon Chocolate Mug Cake

Add some almond flour, flaxseed meal, egg, syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil, ground cinnamon and baking powder to a jug.
Use a fork to whisk everything together (you can, of course, do this directly in the mug that you plan to cook the cake in, but I find I get a smoother result if I mix in a jug first where there is more space). Pour it into a small cup or mug.
Microwave it for one minute on full power or until the center of the cake is cooked through.
Dig in with a spoon and enjoy! You can even add a little whipped cream on top if you would like!
