Bio: I have always been active in sports, it has been my passion through the years. However, I remember as a teenager looking through bodybuilding magazines and wanting to be like those ladies. I was that scrawny little kid though that couldn’t gain weight. Knowing now, that I have just competed on a National stage, a dream has come true. I believe that you are never too old to start!

Best Fitness Recipe: Keto chocolate mug cake

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar substitute of choice (I used Splenda)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream/almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

Directions

  1. Spray the mug with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Set aside. In a separate, slightly larger bowl, mix cocoa powder, sugar substitute, and salt. Add cream/milk, vanilla, and egg to the dry ingredients. Mix well. Add baking powder and mix again.
  3. Firmly tap the mug on the counter to release any large air bubbles.
  4. Cook for around 1 minute 20 seconds, depending on your microwave. The top of the cake should be solid. Flip cake onto a plate to cool.
  5. Top with whipped cream or berries if desired.
