What can you eat when you are dying for dessert and are on a keto diet? This! You can eat this easy and decadent keto chocolate cake. The beauty is that you will be able to make in in minutes and will be completely satisfied.
This keto chocolate cake is spongy and loaded in chocolate flavor. You will think you are sinning but you will not be! Best of both worlds.
You will need some special ingredients to keep this Keto. The first is almond flour. Almond flour is easily found at stores these days. You will also need a non-caloric sweetener. I used Lakanto Monk Fruit. I find that Monk fruit sweetener is the closest to sugar — in my opinion — with the least after taste. Of course, you can use any non-caloric sweetener that you prefer. Stevia is a good option as well. Finally, you will also need sugar free chocolate chips. Lilly’s has these in a lot of stores. I am adding some links for all of these products for you in case you want to get them from Amazon.

Place the butter in a microwavable mug. Melt it for about 20 seconds.
Remove the mug from the microwave and add the egg, Monk-fruit and vanilla extract. Vigorously mix with a fork until it is all mixed in.
