Why I Choose Whole Earth Allulose
I’m partnering with Whole Earth to bring you this yummy dessert because it’s quick and so simple to make. It’s a fun treat at the end of a long day. Whole Earth products are a must have for anyone living a keto lifestyle. I like this sugar alternative because it cooks, bakes, and browns like sugar without the carbs or calories.
So what is allulose? It’s a type of natural sweetener found in fruits like figs and raisins. The allulose baking blend I used in this recipe is a blend of allulose and erythritol. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol found in fruits like melons and grapes. Both Whole Earth’s allulose and erythritol are derived from corn. You might be thinking corn is not keto-friendly but don’t worry; while both are counted as carbs in the nutrition table, neither impacts the blood sugar significantly. You’ll find stevia & monk fruit extracts in the blend that helps add sweetness. There’s also xanthan gum in the blend to that helps with texture, especially in gluten-free baking.
I also like that it measures the same as sugar, so there are no measurements to calculate if you choose to use allulose in the place of sugar for all of your recipes. There are zero net carbs, zero sugar, and zero calories! It’s a miracle ingredient!
How To Make Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
It’s ridiculously simple to make this mug cake. Use a medium to large sized mug for this recipe. Add a tablespoon of butter to the mug and place it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, or until the butter is melted.
Add Whole Earth Allulose and stir well. Next add the egg yolk and vanilla to the mug. Whisk with a fork until well combined.
Finally add in the almond flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar free chocolate chips. Stir until well combined. Smooth the top of the cake mixture with a spoon to even it out.
Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 45-60 seconds. Since every microwave is different, it may take a few more (or a few less) seconds to get it to your desired doneness. But you’ll have fun practicing and perfecting the recipe! The mug cake is done when you can stick a fork in it and it comes out clean. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your chocolate chip mug cake!
