This Keto Chocolate Lava Mug Cake is the easiest 5 minute dessert (or snack) EVER! You don’t even need to bake it – just use the microwave.
There are lots of different versions of mug cakes, but it’s hard to beat a luscious dark chocolate cake with molten lava chocolate oozing out from the center.
It’s Keto, Low Carb, nut free, gluten free, & can also be dairy free (just use coconut oil or cream instead).
This is perfect for times when you don’t want to take the time or energy to make a big chocolate cake. You just need a few utensils and 6 ingredients you probably already have and in 5 minutes you are in Chocolate Heaven. It’s amazing!

A) If you dump everything in at once and try to mix, it’s a hot mess. Trust
me on this one! Do it in this order and you’ll be rewarded.
B) I tried using chocolate chips at first but every trial resulted in the chips
baking into the batter with NO LAVA! So use the chocolate bar instead.
