This Sugar-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake is perfect for two people to share on Valentine’s Day! Made in minutes in a mug! All low carb, sugar-free, grain free, gluten free and guilt free!
When I think of special desserts for special occasions, chocolate and peanut butter is usually the combo I crave.
Special occasions don’t always have to mean difficult and labor intensive desserts to show your loved ones how much you love them.
My weapon of choice when it comes to easy ” but never looks it” desserts are mug cakes!
The man in my life is a peanut butter lover for sure. And he’s also finally after many many years of pleading with him, eating low-er carb for the first time in his life.
He’s all ready lost 10 pounds since the new year so for that I am grateful. Making him a special treat on occasion is one way to make sure he can make this life style change sustainable.
Your certainly don’t even need to get all fancy with this cake. No need to layer one on top of the other if you don’t want to. You can simply make each cake and share the frosting for each. Just as tasty!
But the little extra effort to make it look pretty too, makes me happy. I want it to look like I spent a long time making a dessert when that is farthest from the reality.
This cake could be eaten just for two, but really one fourth the cake is plenty as a serving. It’s rich, chocolatey and peanut buttery!

Peanut Butter Frosting
- 1/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
- 1/4 cup Swerve sweetener or another granulated or powdered sugar free sweetener
- 1/4 cup butter softened
Whisk the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl.
In another bowl whisk the eggs, milk and stevia.
Stir the wet into the dry and combine well.
Grease two shallow ramekins, I used quiche ramekins.
Evenly pour the batter into each ramekin.
Microwave one at a time for 1 minute. May need 30 seconds more in center is still wet.
Allow to cool completely before removing to a serving platter.
Once cooled, make the peanut butter frosting in a stand mixer.
Spread half the frosting on the top of one cake.
Lay the second cake over the first cake and cover with the rest of the frosting.
Shave some sugar-free chocolate bar over the frosting if desired.
Enjoy with your sweetheart!
