FAQ

Can I Make It In The Oven?

I like this keto protein mug cake recipe so much because it’s so quick and easy to make.

But, if you want to use the oven instead, you can! Bake for 10-15 minutes – until the consistency is right (you can check it with a toothpick).

Can I Make It Without The Eggs?

From my experience, making this low carb protein mug cake with egg substitutes doesn’t work very well. If you still want to try- just add more almond milk until the batter is thick.

Can I Freeze It?

This keto mug cake with protein powder is SO easy to make. I recommend just making a new mug cake when you want one.

But, if you still want to freeze it- go ahead, it will last in the freezer for up to 2 months. Make sure to wrap it up tightly in cling wrap or foil.

And, when you’re ready to eat it, just pop it in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.

Do I Have To Use Almond Milk?

The protein powder keto mug cake can be made with other types of milk, but almond milk is the best for two reasons.

First, it has very few carbs. Second, almond milk has a neutral flavor that allows the other ingredients to shine.

Using regular cow’s milk is possible, but the cake will have a slightly different flavor and may be a bit sweeter.

Which Protein Powder To Use?

Any vanilla protein powder will work in this recipe. I tried a few different ones and found that whey protein powder works best.
