How to Make a Low Carb Lemon and Poppy Seed Mug Cake
Add some melted coconut oil and egg to a large mug or bowl and stir well to combine.
Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, low carb sweetener (I used Lakanto but granular Swerve or xylitol would also work well), lemon juice, baking powder and poppy seeds. Stir well to combine.
Cook in the microwave for 1½ – 2 minutes, or until the center is cooked through. It’s all ready too enjoy in less than five minutes!
The cake is soft and fluffy – and this is really quite a large portion!
