The BEST Keto Mug Cookie

When was the last time you took a trip in your time machine? …Don’t have one? You sure? I don’t know about you, but every time I bake cookies and that delicious combination of vanilla and butter hits my senses, I’m immediately transported to the kitchen of my childhood. Taking a swipe of cookie dough from the batch my dad and I just whipped up… picking up that first warm one from the tray and feeling the gooey chocolate chips melting on my tongue…. You get it.

You don’t have to give up those moments on keto. It wouldn’t be a sustainable lifestyle for me otherwise! The problem, really, is the fact that… well, it’s hard to bake an entire batch of cookies and not eat all of them. At least for me, anyway. That’s why I wanted to make the absolute best single serving cookie recipe that didn’t sacrifice taste, texture, or nostalgia. You’ll love how simple this recipe is and how quickly it comes together!

Warm, buttery, soft, just like a cookie right out of the oven with only 5 minutes of work. This is THE only mug cookie you will ever need while you live a keto or low carb life style.

PS: Go ahead and book mark this page, you will be back!



Melt one tbsp of butter in a microwave safe mug or bowl. Add 2 tbsp sweetener, I use Pyure Organic Blend. Add one egg yolk and splash vanilla. Mix.

Add 5 tbsp of almond flour and mix. Add as many sugar free chocolate chips as you want, you measure that with your heart. Mix.

Microwave for 40 seconds. Let cool for 1 minute. If the cookie looks wet, it will dry out more as it sits.

If you really don’t want to go through the hassle (or dishes LOL) of making a mug cookie, I totally get it. Here is my FAVORITE packaged keto cookie on the market. Not only are the ingredients spot on, the texture and flavor of all the cookies are perfectly crafted and you wont even realize they are low carb. I really love The Keto Cookie and have a coupon you can use for 10% off all your orders!

    Perfect thing to make when you want to sweet treat. I like making things like this because I don’t have another 11 cookies just sitting around tempting me to eat them. One and done!!

    I love this recipe. I do add the whole egg and leave out the chocolate chips. It makes the perfect cake for strawberry shortcake. My non-keto husband even likes it.
