Jalapeno Popper Mug Cake [Perfect for Work Lunch]

I’ve been on a binge of jalapeno popper stuff for a while now. Between my Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper Casserole and my Jalapeno Popper Fat Bombs, I really wanted to make something a bit different. Sometimes on keto we are forced to choose between easy and tasty – but that’s the complete opposite when it comes to this recipe.

Mug cakes are the perfect way to have a meal in just a few minutes. Mix all the ingredients together and put it in the microwave and you have an awesome cross between a sandwich and a cake that tastes phenomenal. Plus, you can put pretty much any flavor imaginable into a mug cake. As many of you know, I’ve done a lot of mug cakes in the past – both savory and sweet.

The best part about them is that they’re portable, too! You can either cook in advance and go, or bring the mixed ingredients with you to pop into the microwave later – a great lunch choice if you’re at work and in a pinch.

1 tablespoon golden flaxseed meal

    It’s so soft and moist, and looks so good. Not only are your recipes delicious looking but your choice in the music for the videos are fantastic.
    Love every part of your videos.

    Looks so good. I am trying this today. Turkey pepperoni as a meat substitute.

      How was it?

    A little cheddar cheese on top would be nice, too. I would think this could be baked in toaster oven at 350 for about 15 to 20 minutes? It looks so yummy for lunch. 😊❤

    To be honest, I don’t like the texture of eggs that have been cooked in the microwave. Do you have suggestions for baking these in the oven instead?

      Wouldn’t the texture be different because it was mixed with other ingredients.

      @Kiia bath & body there is still an egg in there, and I would prefer to bake it if possible. Personal preference.
