This lightly sweetened mug cake is a delicious, one-serving treat, which can be made in only a few minutes! Free of grains, gluten, dairy, eggs, and refined sugar too!



Mug Cake:

1 tablespoon cassava flour

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1 packed tablespoon coconut sugar (add an extra 1/2 tablespoon if you like it sweeter. Can also use another granulated sugar of choice)

1 tablespoon dairy-free mini chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling on top

2 teaspoons cacao or cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoons dairy-free milk of choice

1 tablespoon oil of choice

splash of vanilla, optional

Chocolate Glaze: (optional)

12 teaspoons maple syrup

12 teaspoons cacao or cocoa powder


Mug Cake:

In a large microwave safe mug, combine dry ingredients—flours, sugar, chocolate chips, cacao/cocoa powder, and baking soda.

Stir in milk, oil, and vanilla. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips over the batter, then heat in the microwave for 60-90 seconds. Start with less time and add the extra 30 seconds if cake isn’t fluffy to the touch. Let cool slightly before serving. Delicious served with berries and chocolate glaze!

Chocolate Glaze:

In a small bowl, combine maple syrup with cacao/cocoa powder, whisking till smooth. Add more cocoa to thicken or more syrup to thin. Drizzle over mug cake.
