Super Quick & Yummy Mug Cake

Just because you’ve changed your eating habits and you no longer fill your body with rubbish doesn’t mean you don’t occasionally get a hankering for something sinful. The other night I needed something “sweet” but I didn’t want to go off the rails, either.. enter this quick & easy chocolate mug cake!

Luckily I have all the ingredients on hand. It’s low carb, has a pretty low glycemic index, and it’s super easy. I mean, you MICROWAVE it for goodness sakes! I know these mug cakes have been around forever, I have no idea why I haven’t jumped on the bandwagon sooner… so now, does anyone have a good recipe using protein powder? Let me know!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa (unsweetened of course)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt or himalayan pink salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp honey or brown rice syrupmugcake
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut milk or almond milk
  • sprinkle of chocolate chips (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the dry ingredients in a small bowl, whisking to combine.
  2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, whisking well to make sure all dry ingredients are combined into the wet (you don’t want any pockets of those dry ingredients, trust me)
  3. Transfer mixture into a microwave-proof mug, and microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Take out & enjoy for the mug, or empty into a bowl. I served mine with a teaspoon of unsweetened almond butter and it was SUPER delicious.
