Chocolate Mug Cake


I’ve been trying to avoid processed foods. This means if I have a craving for something delicious and dessert like I need to make it myself. Every now and then something chocolate-y and cake-y sounds really good. I found a recipe on Pinterest but I found it to be a little too dry so I continued to tweak it until it was the perfect consistency. And I put off sharing my recipe with you all until it was just right. This grain free, dairy free, gluten free mug cake is great in the morning for breakfast, before a run or even at night with a cup of hot cocoa. 


Start with 3 tablespoons of coconut flour.
 

Add one ripe banana.


Mix the banana and the coconut flour.


Add an egg and mix in the batter.


Add 2 tablespoons of coconut milk and mix.


Add 2 tablespoons of agave or honey and mix.


Add 2 tablespoons of ghee or butter of your choice and mix.


Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and mix.
If you prefer dark chocolate, add 1 more tablespoon of cocoa powder.


Microwave for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
Depending on how powerful your microwave is, you may need to add or subtract time.


Finished product! Enjoy!

 

This morning I woke up and realized I was out of almond milk. I can’t drink my coffee without almond milk so I went to the grocery store at 7:30. It was quite nice. It was pretty much just me and the Mimosa guy. The best part was that I found nog heaven. I was reminded that Christmas is right around the corner! I love how many options there are for nogs now. I used to drink the soy version but this year I thought I’d give the coconut version a try. I came home and made an iced coffee and added So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog. I used to love the Egg Nog Latte at Starbucks but I don’t think I will need one this year. So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog is a wonderful substitute. (Side note - I can't believe how long my hair is getting!)


I made bacon, eggs and potatoes for breakfast. I could eat this meal every day. It is so good and it provides great fuel for a run. I’ll be running four miles later on. I’m actually looking forward to it! I’ll be downloading some new music to get me through. Happy Saturday!!!

  1. Looks good! I really need to make one of these instead of indulging in all the cupcakes. lol Usually, if I can find a substitution for something I'm craving I'm good.
