5 minute paleo chocolate cake in a mug!

Mmm. Love hot chocolate cake! This cake is made in single servings in mugs. Make sure you use mugs big enough to hold the cake rising up. So delicious! Would love to hear the toppings you all come up with!

5 minute paleo chocolate cake

2.5 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1.5 tbsp maple syrup/honey
2 tsp coconut flour
1 egg
Splash of vanilla
1-2 tbsp very dark chocolate pieces (make them small)

Place coconut oil in mug. Heat in microwave until melted. Add remaining ingredients and mix well with a fork until completely smooth. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, or until cake stops rising. Serve warm and enjoy!!

  1. this was such a delight tonight! Thanks so much for this...I sooo needed a chocolate fix

  2. THANK YOU!!! Used almond flour and its delish!

  3. I want to know how you mixed it completely smooth? It sooo did not mix smooth.

  4. Holy cow, I did the calories for this, if you eat the whole thing yourself its 699 calories, 67 grams of fat,18 g sugar, 23 carbs 18 g of sugar. Even split its still 349 calories. I will never be making this again.

  5. If you are counting calories, then you obviously aren't embracing the paleo lifestyle. All calories are not created equal. And as for the smoothness, try sifting your coconut flour first.

  6. Delicious ^__^ only complaint is that mine is very dry. I'm guessing I cooked it for too long?

  7. Try decreasing your cooking time and a little less coconut flour. You may have very thirsty coconut flour. Glad you liked it!

  8. Very delicious! Best 'mug cake' I've ever had. I wish it was easier to search your site for recipes because you have some great ones!

  9. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally kill fat by consuming Coconut Fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from large medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
