I am a chocoholic!! I love my chocolate. Of course when you’re trying to eat more healthy or when you switch to a Paleo lifestyle, chocolate is not necessarily on the list of Paleo approved foods and neither is cake. BUT.. with a few substitutions we can still satisfy our chocolate craving. For example, let’s take a look at this delicious Paleo Chocolate Cake in a Mug Recipe.
This is one of my favorites because it’s quick, easy and delicious! When I get a chocolate craving, I can whip this up quickly without having to bake an entire cake. Two minutes and I am eating this yummy dessert. Well maybe 5 minutes with adding all of the ingredients. 😉
Grab some coconut milk ice cream and you’ve got an awesome dessert without all of the guilt and stomach issues that the regular versions may cause.
So here we go… you’re just steps from trying out this delicious Paleo Chocolate Cake in a Mug.
Paleo Chocolate Cake in a Mug Recipe
1/4 Cup Blanched Almond flour
5 Tablespoons coconut sugar OR 3T honey
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons Cacao Powder
3 Tablespoons almond milk
3T Coconut oil
Dash of vanilla and salt
Mix all ingredients in a microwavable safe mug.
Microwave for 2 minutes.
(carefully remove from microwave.. hot hot hot).
After it’s out of the microwave, I also sprinkle a few cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips on the top. They melt from the very warm cake and is just a yummy addition. Especially if you’re really craving chocolate! Yum!
Now let me just make one side note, if you’re just switching to Paleo or removing sugar from your diet, this is NOT going to taste like it’s full sugared counterpart. However, once you remove the sugar from your diet, your cravings and tastes will change.
Now off you go! Go make your own Paleo Chocolate Cake in a Mug. That’s where I’m heading! Enjoy!
