Coconut Almond Dark Chocolate Mug Cakes // Paleo + Gluten Free

I made one other mug cake here, and I have NO idea why I don’t do them more often.  There’s no shortage of variations, and they are ridiculously easy to make, enough for one or two to share, and with nominal clean up=TOTAL WIN!!Blog Paleo Coconut Flour Almond Mug Cake-1 Blog Paleo Coconut Flour Almond Mug Cake-2


  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Almond Butter (can use Sun Butter for a nut free option)
  • 1-½ tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1-½ tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk (or any milk you’d like)
  • ½ a vanilla bean (scrape out the inside, throw away the shell) or ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional topping ideas- dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or berries (dried or fresh)!


  • In a separate bowl whisk together coconut flour, and baking powder.
  • Add egg, almond butter, coconut oil, honey, almond milk and vanilla bean and blend until creamy.  Super easy to have your child do all the mixing!  Not so easy to keep them from eating the batter 😉Blog Paleo Coconut Almond Mug Cake with Banana Ice Cream-2

    Wow! This is absolutely amazing. Almond butter is one of the loves of my life – I honestly don’t know how people can live without it. I really want to give your recipe a shot this weekend and will absolutely let you know how it turns out if I do. So glad I discovered your site! Love your blog, your photos, and your writing style. 🙂 I can’t wait to see more recipes in the future!
