Easy Keto Mug Bread

I often make this recipe in a small, square, microwave-friendly Tupperware, but I realise my readers may not have the same size I do, and its kinda essential. So.. to simplify things, here is a version (I call it easy keto mug bread) created in ramekins (as I assume every home has a few kicking about. If not, use microwave-friendly coffee mugs). This recipe make two ‘breads’ that are then sliced in half, yielding 4 thick slices in total (as pictured) – and I have calculated the macros per mug ‘bread’ / 2 slices. I hope by now you have invested in an inexpensive set of measuring spoons, and remember that they should be level when measuring – not heaped. I added a little sweetener to achieve that sweet ‘bread’ flavour and you would be happy to know that this bread has no ‘eggy’ flavour. I used mustard powder which masks this very well – and no, the bread doesn’t taste at all like mustard! :) If you aren’t up for having two fat slices from your mug bread, slice each one into 3 thinner slices (yielding 6 slices), then wrap in clingfilm and keep in the fridge for no longer than 3 days. To eat, pop into the microwave for a few seconds and top with whatever your heart desires (my favourite is butter and Bovril!). One last TOP TIP before I bore you, make sure your dry ingredients are mixed very well. Then, when adding the egg mix, again ensure it is thoroughly combined. Failing to do so and you may end up with giant holes. Enjoy!

  1. Whisk the eggs and olive oil in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients, ensuring the mixture has thoroughly combined. Grease two ramekins well. (Alternatively, you could make these in microwave-friendly mugs, but I like the consistency in shape that ramekins provide.)
  2. Add the whisked egg mixture to the dry mix and combine very well. Divide the mixture between the two greased ramekins. Place (one at a time) into the microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds each, then carefully remove. Be careful please -the ramekins will be very hot.
  3. Holding the hot ramekins with a tea towel, slide a knife around the edges and tip the ramekins upside down, removing the two solid masses. Once cool enough to handle, slice each one into 2-3 even slices, yielding 4-6 slices in total (as pictured.)
  4. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest). There is also a comment facility, so do let me know how you get on...

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 3.6g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
