Mug cakes have become one of the favorite desserts for many because of their easy preparation and their wide variety for all sorts of tastes, that is why we are offering you a Keto choice.
These wonderful and quick cupcakes are prepared in their own cup, they are an excellent choice when cooking a dessert without the messy and dirty remains in the kitchen, since all it takes is mixing all the necessary ingredients with a fork in a cup and baking them for 1 minute in the microwave oven.
In this recipe we are using almond flour instead of regular flour, for many reasons. It has an amazing taste in baking, the oil in it is really stable on high temperatures, as well as the nutritious benefits it provides.
It is low in carbohydrates and full of insulin regulating fibers, making it a perfect choice not only for keto dieters, but also for anyone on a healthy diet. Other than that, its packed with proteins, antioxidants and trace minerals, so why not include it as much as we can in our baking!
Some of the things you want to monitor when baking with almond flour, is storage. Due to its high levels of fat, rancidity could be a major issue. Preventing oxidation, which leads to rancidity, is achieved by using air tight containers and storing the flour in the fridge or in the freezer.
