Holly, so you have a Winco grocery store in your area. The Wincos here in Northern Calif have a wonderful bulk foods section, & it includes almond flour! Much cheaper than even Trader Joe's packaged almond flour.

if i was going to use an oven i'd just do a cake recipe..the mug cakes are designed for microwaves..i'd quadruple a mug cake recipe, put it in one 8" round pan (or use the basic mug cake and do 2 cupcakes) and watch them carefully. i think you might find them dry with the longer cooking time? I'd test it for you, but with the high cost of almond flour i dont want to throw any out!

I have wanted to try a KETO mug cake that can be baked in convection oven - not sure how to convert the time. I basically don't use my microwave any more.

Hi Kate...type in a google search "keto mug cake" and you will get lots!! my favorite is the maple walnut pecan with a squirt of sugar free maple syrup, and when i want chocolate i just take out the spices and flavoring and put in 2 T cocoa powder and a squirt of vanilla extract. heres a link to the maple one..

my current indulgence is chocolate cupcakes made with coconut flour, and topped with a cream cheese buttercream. yummy!!

Holly, you said " I have some keto mug cakes that are really good..the chocolate one tastes like a brownie..and they only take 60 seconds to bake!!!" I love cake in a mug, but thought I was going to have to give them up when I went full-bore keto. Would you please share them?

Cool! The Invisible Ink Font, Dave?? What app was that!? Unfortunately, I don't have the magic secret decoder ring for that, so not sure what you were saying??

Wow! Maybe it was all the movement. The other thing, maybe, is that it might have been a fairly high fat cake, "rich" - you know, oils, creams, sour creams, etc and even a good quality chocolate with low sugar content (unsweetened chocolate used a lot in cakes and then the sugar is added)... so who knows. You didn't say what type of cake, but as a cake maker myself (not too much the last 10-20 years), it's quite possible to have a homemade cake that really doesn't have as much sugars (or other high carb sources) as a storeboughten cake with all the extra preservatives and chemicals and other glop they put in those cakes?

I've had a few times like that too, where I ate "carb" veggies like sweet potatos and then my KETO seemed to be higher rather than lower.

Did your blood glucose go down? or up? or were you tracking?

Maybe Erin or James will have some other observations.

Oh and the keto sticks - allegedly they aren't as effective at all once you get to where the ketone levels are higher and more measurable via breath or in blood (more expensive testing but more accurate and wouldn't have to do it all the time.).

But YAY!!!
