Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

Sometimes, it’s necessary to end the day on a sweet note. Last night, for me, that was in the form of a keto chocolate mug cake with fresh whipped cream. I don’t know who invented the concept of mug cakes, but where have they been all our lives? Why did I just learn of them now that I’m keto? I have a half-dozen keto mug cake recipes that I swear by, but mug cakes aren’t just for those living low carb – my son has become a master at making mug cakes for dessert too!

Ok, back to my keto chocolate mug cake creation. I don’t have a crazy sweet tooth, so I don’t indulge in sweets too often, but I had a MAJOR chocolate craving so decided to experiment with a few different ingredients which ended up in a moist, not too sweet but majorly satisfying keto dessert-for-one.

And I threw in some chopped Lily’s Salted Almond chocolate for extra goodness which added melty, gooey, chocolatey perfection!

NOTE: you can use Swerve instead of powdered Erythritol or your sweetener of choice.
