Picture this: it’s after dinner and you’re sitting on your sofa snuggled up to your pet, watching your favorite movie, when suddenly you get hit with a MASSIVE dessert craving.
We’ve all been there, right?! You want something sweet, but don’t have anything on-hand. You may have some sort of cookie or dessert mix, but you probably don’t want to wait 45 minutes for it to bake!
For times like these, I have the PERFECT (keto-friendly!) solution for you! This keto pumpkin pie mug cake will totallllllly satisfy your sweet tooth, while allowing you to stay in ketosis!
10 Minute pumpkin pie in a mug
One of the BEST parts about this recipe is that it only takes, at most, TEN minutes to make! No, that isn’t a typo. This yummy treat seriously only requires ten minutes of your time, and that includes the preparation AND cooking time!
Not only is it a low time commitment, but the process is only a few simple steps, making this one of the easiest treats to whip together on a whim! I absolutely love throwing this together when my sweet tooth kicks in.
Low Carb, Keto Pumpkin Pie
What’s better than a nice pumpkin dessert on a brisk autumn evening? It is such a great way to stay cozy, especially if you eat it right after it comes out of the microwave when it is nice and warm… YUM.
I mentioned that this recipe is totally keto-compliant, but it is also perfect for those following a low-carb diet. One serving (which is super simple to measure, as one serving = one mug cake) only contains 5.1 grams of net carbs! How can a dessert be so low in carbs? Well, it is made with Classic Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, a great, tasty low-carb sugar alternative.
