Meal prepping for someone on a diet is essential, but it can be SO. MUCH. WORK. Measuring out exact amounts of foods, tracking each and every item you eat, it can be exhausting.
After all that hard work, you deserve a no-prep dessert that won’t send you flying off your diet! Keto-Friendly mug cakes are just what you need: 5 grams of net carbs, zero added sugar, and oh so delicious. You can’t go wrong! (We also are obsessed with these Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Fat Bombs!)

My New Year’s resolution this year was to try and cut some carbs out of my diet. Well, here we are, a quarter of the way through the year (that went FAST…) and I’m still sticking to it – might be the first time ever!
One way that I was able to eliminate some carbs out of my daily routine was to look for recipes and foods that are “keto-friendly.” By focusing on high-(good)-fat foods and high protein foods, my body is able to burn fat rather than carbs which keeps me satisfied for longer!
However, finding options to satisfy my massive SWEET TOOTH has been trickier.
No ice cream? Brownies? Or the worst possible thing (for me at least…) NO CAKES?! It sounds nearly impossible for me.
Don’t fret, this is totally not true. You can still be low-carb, Keto-friendly, AND eat sweets thanks to these new Duncan Hines Keto Mug Cakes! These tasty treats have been a lifesaver for me on my carb-cutting journey.
What is a Keto Mug Cake?
Mug cakes have become very popular in the last few years. They’re great because you can have a yummy dessert in minutes and not have to worry about having tons of leftovers lying around your house! The problem with typical mug cakes is they are loaded with sugar (don’t get me wrong, I totally indulge in them sometimes, we all deserve it).
Duncan Hines has totally solved that problem with their new Keto-Friendly mug cakes. With zero grams of added sugar (yes… I repeat ZERO grams of added sugar), I can feel good about popping one of these treats in the microwave when I’ve got a craving to satisfy!
Not only is there zero added sugar, but Duncan Hines mug cakes also have only 5 grams of net carbs! A typical mug cake that you make at home can have anywhere from 20-35 grams of carbohydrates (definitely not good for those of us cutting carbs or trying to stay keto-friendly).
How to make Keto-Friendly Mug Cakes
Ever want a dessert that takes little to no prep work, and absolutely ZERO mess? I know I am a sucker for sneaking a sweet treat after my kids go to bed, but the evidence is totally there the next morning by the empty ice cream container or half-eaten batch of brownies left on the counter. Not a problem anymore!
My favorite part about the new Duncan Hines Keto-Friendly Mug Cakes is that they are low prep with no mess (aka evidence) for me to clean up after.
They’re as simple as:
- Peel back the lid.
- Stir 2 tablespoons of water into the dry ingredients. (You can also substitute in coconut oil or avocado oil to up your healthy fats.)
- Pop in the microwave for 1 minute.
That’s it! In less than a minute and a half of cooking time, you can have a delicious dessert that helps you stay on track with your low-carb lifestyle. Bonus: there’s zero clean up, besides your spoon!
If you want to make your dessert extra fancy, sprinkle the top of your chocolate mug cake with a little powdered Erythritol sweetener and a raspberry or two. YUM!
What flavors of mug cakes are there?
I am a self-proclaimed “chocoholic,” so anything with any bit of chocolate in it is for me.
- I personally love the Double Chocolate Cake flavor, but there are two other flavors if double chocolate isn’t your thing!
- If you are a big fan of vanilla cake (and really, who isn’t?), the Birthday Cake flavor is sweet and delicious!
- Another option for chocolate lovers is the Walnut Fudge Brownie – chocolate and nuts are a GREAT combo and this flavor really hits the spot!
Where can you buy Keto-Friendly Mug Cakes?
The new Duncan Hines mug cakes are available now at all Walmart stores. I am personally loving online ordering these days, so when I make my weekly grocery order, I make sure to add in a few of these mug cakes to help satisfy my sweet tooth!
If you’re doing in-store shopping, head over to the baking aisle to find the mug cakes. They’re stocked right near the Duncan Hines cake mixes and other microwaveable treats.
Whether you’re shopping in stores, ordering for curbside pick-up, or getting your groceries delivered – Duncan Hines new Keto-Friendly Mug Cakes are a great way to stay on track with your low-carb diet while also treating yourself to a yummy snack!
