I couldn’t wait to share this easy chocolate mug cake with members of a 56 Days Facebook group that I manage the other night after it turned out so yummy.  Sometimes a girl just needs a little sweet treat, but you just don’t have the time to make something too elaborate in the kitchen–let me tell you, this easy chocolate mug treat fit the bill!!

After looking online for a mug cake recipe, I decided to modify this just a bit based on the ingredients I had in the house and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT.  Next time (and there will definitely be a next time–maybe tonight), I’ll make a sugar free whipped topping to go along with this yummy, single serve dessert–so easy and so good but again, gotta have the ingredients.

So what makes this easy chocolate mug cake so perfect?

  • It literally takes no more than five minutes to make from start to finish.
  • If you’re following a specific dietary lifestyle–it’s most likely approved.  Here are some that it works for:  56 Days, Keto, Gluten-Free/Grain-Free, Sugar-Free and Low Carb.
  • It’s a single serving so you can make it just about anytime and you won’t over indulge.
  • It’s just so dang good!

Easy Chocolate Mug Cake

2 tbsp. liquid coconut oil
1/4 c. blanched almond flour
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
large egg
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Light sprinkle of pink himalayan salt
1 tbsp. nuts (your choice–I used pecans)
3 strawberries sliced and topped for garnish
(Obviously you can buy all of the items above in the grocery store.  However, several of the item links above that I am recommending include multiple products which allow you to save on cost; they’re also larger sizes which come in handy when you cook these types of items regularly.)
You’ll need a 12 ounce mug for this mug cake.  Add your oil and egg to the mug and mix well.  Next, add all the remaining ingredients (NOT the strawberries–those go on at the end to make this dessert pretty).  Mix well.  Place mug in the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute.  Remove to check for doneness–the cake is done but if you like it a little less gooey, microwave on the save temperature for an additional 20 seconds. Finally, take a sharp knife and run around the inside of the mug for easy removal.  Finally, slide your cake onto a serving plate.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for easy chocolate mug cake, but I would love to have you share ways you modify to make it approved for a specific dietary lifestyle or just to make it more yummy!
