Make this easy healthy vanilla mug cake recipe in less than 5 minutes in the microwave. If you need a quick, no-bake dessert or snack that’s gluten-free, paleo, sugar-free, keto and delicious, and uses simple ingredients, you need to try this vanilla mug cake! 




Start by melting the coconut oil in your mug or ramekin. That’ll take you anywhere between 35-45 seconds, depending on how strong your microwave is:)

Next, stir in the vanilla. 

Then go ahead and add the almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, salt, and egg. Do your best to mix it up – remember your mood later may depend on your stirring skills. 

Now, pop it into the microwave for 1 minute, 30 seconds. 

Boom. You have cake now. 

Top with keto whipped cream, cream cheese frosting,  strawberries or blueberries, or a little powdered erythritol or nothing because damn, you need cake.
