Choco Coco Mug Cake

I love mug cakes because they are so easy to make! You just chuck the ingredients in a mug, stick it in the microwave and voila, instant dessert in seconds. My Paleo-friendly choco coco mug cake is not only grain-free, it's also healthier than store-bought cake mixes. It contains healthy, wholesome ingredients. My choco coco mug cake is high in protein thanks to the almond milk, egg white, and almond butter as well as antioxidants from the cocoa powder. If you want a quick dessert that you can whip up in 90 seconds, try this winning recipe:

Choco Coco Mug Cake

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ​1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ​1 egg white, large
  • ​⅛ teaspoon baking powder
  • ​⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • ​¼ cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • Almond butter as topping


Step 1: Start by giving your favorite coffee mug a light spritz of coconut oil. Then, pour and combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda in the coffee mug, stirring constantly to incorporate all ingredients.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, combine and whisk the maple syrup, egg white, and almond milk. Pour the almond milk mix into the coffee mug and mix again to blend the wet and dry ingredients.

Step 3: Once all ingredients are blended nicely, stick the coffee mug in the microwave and microwave on high for 90 seconds. If the batter seems a little runny, microwave for another 30 seconds. Top with a modest scoop of almond butter and enjoy!
