Loving your life on the Keto diet, but desperately missing the sweet life? Thankfully, there’s a recipe that doesn’t just give you cake, but lets you eat it too! Huzzah!

This recipe is low-carb by using some smart ingredient swaps such a coconut flour, peanut butter, eggs, coconut oil and some natural Monk fruit sweetener, and some low-carb dark chocolate chips.

The result is a light fluffy cake you just simply microwave to “bake” for a single serving you will be drooling over.

  • 3 tbsp monk fruit sweetener
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
