Low Carb, Low Calorie Single-serving Mug Cake

  • 2 Tbsp. oat fiber (White/wheat/oat flour would work here too, I think!)
  • 1 Tbsp.(10 g) cricket powder
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp. egg whites (Or a whole egg for a richer cake)
  • 3 Tbsp. water or milk
  • Dash glucomannan (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin, butternut, or sweet potato puree
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Sweetener to taste (I like two packets of splenda!)
  • dash apple cider vinegar


  1. Mix ingredients well, adding vinegar last.
  2. Microwave 1:30-2:00 min, until done.
  3. Top with whipped cream, sugar-free syrup, chocolate chips, walnuts, or whatever your heart desires!
  4. I like to flip my cake over in the bowl so the syrup absorbs!
