Paleo Mug Cake

If you’re looking for a quick, healthy, single-serving dessert, this Paleo Mug Cake is it! To give this cake a rich, chocolatey-flavor, we use raw cocao powder. Cacao is known for it’s superfood qualities—containing more antioxidants than blueberries, high levels of plant-based iron, and lots of heart-healthy magnesium, this delicious food should definitely be a staple in your pantry!

Paleo Mug Cake

  • Yield: 1 1x

Description

This dessert could not be easier to make. Mix up the ingredients in a mug, pop in the microwave, and dig into chocolatey heaven! If you’re feeling extra decadent, toss a tablespoon or two of dark chocolate chips on top of the batter before microwaving, and serve with a dollop of coconut cream. Enjoy!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp cocao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tbsp almond milk (unsweetened)

Instructions

  1. Place egg into the mug. Beat with a fork. Add the maple syrup and beat again. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
  2. Place in microwave for 60-90 seconds. Higher wattage microwaves may cook more quickly. The cake will rise up a bit and sink after cooking. The texture can vary between cakey or a more fudgy cake depending on how long it’s cooked.
  3. If desired, serve with a dollop of coconut cream or a sprinkle of cocao powder.

    Very tasty. Rich chocolate flavor! I used almond flour instead of almond meal. Cake was fluffy with great texture! Will make again! Thanks for the recipe…
