A Healthier Chocolate Mug Cake

Quite a while ago, KidMag posted a recipe for a mug cake. This is essentially an updated version that is healthier. It is now gluten-free and uses a natural sweetener instead of sugar, but it is just as tasty!

To start, you’ll need:

Coconut Oil
Cocoa Powder
Almond Flour
Maple Syrup
Eggs
Milk
Vanilla Extract
Salt
Bowls
Mug
Spoon

Start by putting ¼ cup of coconut oil into a bowl.

Combine the two bowls together and pour your mixture into a microwavable mug.

Microwave until the desired consistency is reached. Start with a minute and twenty seconds and microwave it for longer if needed.

Enjoy!
