Easy keto recipes, are my favorite kinds of keto recipes. And this Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake Recipe is about as easy as keto recipes get.
THIS KETO CINNAMON ROLL MUG CAKE is basically a cinnamon roll in cake form!! And the entire thing has just 4 NET CARBS!! Plus, it’s MADE IN JUST MINUTES!!
This Keto friendly recipe makes more than a mug full of cake – it’s actually a small dish full – and it’s WAY easier than actually making keto cinnamon rolls.
PRO-TIP: Always err on the side of LESS COOK TIME when you make a mug cake. This will make sure you get the perfect cake consistency to your mug cake, and that you don’t dry your cake out. Which can happen easily with them….So start with something like 30 seconds, and add time (10ish seconds at-a-time) until the center is just ever so slightly undercooked. It will keep cooking as it cools.
All you have to do is add the ingredients into a medium sized bowl, mix, and microwave! Best of all, this Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake is done in just minutes. Which really makes this the perfect on the go keto snack idea too.

- Yield: 1 Mug Cake 1x
- Category: Breakfast
- Cuisine: Keto
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Tbsps (15g) Coconut flour
- 1/2 Scoop (15g) Protein Powder
- 1 Tsp PURE Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Tsp Baking powder
- 1 3/4 Tbsp (20g) Granulated erythritol
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 2 Tsps (5g) Confectioners erythritol
- 1 Tsp (5g) Melted coconut oil
- Add the eggs to a medium/large sized bowl
- Whisk until egg yolks and whites combine with one another
- Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk again (do this until most of the protein powder dissolves in the batter – may take a couple of minutes)
- When everything has dissolved, coat a small dish with non-stick baking spray and add the batter
- Microwave for 1-2 minutes
- ***Microwave times will vary. ALWAYS go with less time than you think. Then keep microwaving until perfect cake consistency forms.
- ***My microwave is 700 Watts and 1:45 is about the right amount of time. Adjust accordingly
- While the cake is microwaving add the glaze ingredients to a small dish, and combine.
- If the glaze is too thick for whatever reason add just a tiny TINY bit of milk to thin it out.
- When the cake is done in the microwave add the glaze, top with cinnamon and enjoy!
*NOTE: The macros do not include the “carbs” from the erythritol. Erythritol doesn’t have calories, thus I did not include the “carbs” in the macro nutrient information.
*NOTE: To up the fat, add coconut oil to the cake batter!
