It’s still possible to treat yourself while on the keto diet when you do so in a portion-controlled way, like mug cakes.

When tasked with developing a breakfast-y blueberry cake, I was determined to recreate the glorious texture of a streusel-studded muffin. But I was equally determined to keep the recipe low-lift: one bowl, no special equipment, no fuss.

Classic streusel asks you to incorporate flour, sugar, and spices into butter, using a food processor or pastry cutter to combine. In other words, more dirty dishes. Instead, as an experiment, I reached for a bag of granola typically reserved for my morning yogurt and sprinkled it on the batter.

The result? A moist, velvety cake crowned with honeyed almond and oat crunchies. And a single bowl and whisk to show for the 10-minute project.

If you want a quick and easy chocolate mug cake recipe, you can omit the toppings. However, if you’re looking to take your moist mug cake to another level, take the time to make the chocolate glaze and whipped cream topping.

Using store-bought snacks as toppings isn’t a novel discovery. A package of croutons does for salads what pre-made granolas can do for baked goods: instant flavor and texture with zero hassle. While most granolas will work seamlessly in most recipes, there are a couple of caveats. Steer clear of granolas with dried fruit, which will bake into dental nightmares. And lean towards pale-colored clusters that aren’t already browned to the brim of burnt—they will likely scorch by the time the cake is done. We like Nature’s Path and Cascadian Farm.

Though brown in hue, chocolate granola is very much welcome to the shortcut-streusel party, and tastes especially delicious on chai cake. Add toasted coconut granola to your next batch of carrot muffins. And if you’re a fan of intense crunch, look for large-clustered granola brands like Michele’s or Nature Valley.

And these chocolaty billionaire bars could do with an added layer of crunch if you have peanut butter granola to spare.

But first—blueberry cake.
