Jun 13, 2024

Here's our take on the viral tiktok almond croissant recipes! From almond croissant cookies, blondies, bars, and baked oats, we've been loving this almond-croissant inspired trend and just had to join in. 

We've taken ours a step further by creating this Keto friendly almond croissant mug cake - an easy single serve recipe, with minimal dishes and ingredients. Best of all, it's ready to eat in just 5 minutes! Using our Justine's Keto Victoria Sponge Cake Mix as the base, keeps this recipe keto friendly and provides a "fool-proof" mug cake base with less hassle and fewer ingredients. 

We love that this recipe is single serve, quick and easy to make . It's the perfect sweet treat to satisfy your cravings in just minutes (because who has time to cook a whole cake when you need something sweet now?), perfect for dessert, afternoon tea, or just because! The best part is that this recipe, unlike most other mug cakes, is actually pretty healthy – it's ultra-low carb, keto, sugar-free, gluten-free, and provides a decent amount of protein to keep you satisfied!
