Prep Time3 mins
Cook Time2 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 mug cake

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, ghee or coconut oil
  • 2 squares dark chocolate (20 g)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon stevia/erythritol blend for low-carb or honey for Paleo
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter

Instructions

  • Add butter/coconut oil and dark chocolate to a microwave-safe mug or ramekin.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds or until the butter is melted. Stir until the chocolate is melted. If necessary, microwave for another 15 seconds.
  • Mix in coconut flour, egg and sweetener. Stir until fully-incorporated.
  • Take a spoonful of almond butter and place in the center of the mug cake. Cover with the chocolate mixture, if it sits on top. Top with additional chocolate chips or chunks, if desired.
  • Microwave for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. 90 seconds may be enough for a tall mug. 2 minutes is probably necessary for a ramekin or a wider, shallower container.
  • Allow to cool before consuming.
