  • 12 oz mug
  • 2 cup measuring cup



  • Add all of the wet ingredients to a 2 cup glass measuring cup (or small bowl) and mix well using a fork.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the mixture into a medium-sized mug and smooth out the top. Add additional chocolate chips on top, if desired. Microwave for 1-2 minutes. Mine was perfect at the 1.5 minute mark!
  • Let it cool for 1-2 minutes. Top with a scoop of dairy free icecream or whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!


I have not tested this recipe with a flax egg or with any other types of flour. If you try a new variation, let us know how it goes in the comments below!
For paleo, use Hu Kitchen or Eating Evolved chocolate chips.
The mug cake will be hot when it comes out of the microwave. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes before eating!
To make this egg free and vegan, use 1.5 tbsp applesauce instead of the egg!
No coconut flour? No worries. Just use 1/3 cup almond flour total instead.
