Paleo Chocolate Mug Cake

I intended on eating just half. That didn't work out. I ate the whole mug full. It's a happy-miserable, really.

What a delicious concoction. Easy and quick. You will love this!

Pictures do no justice to the taste
PREP: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 3 Minutes
Total: 8 Minutes
Serves: Makes 1 (one) Cake


1 small ripe banana
1 1/2 Tablespoons almond butter (or any nut butter)
1 egg
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (I used Chatfield's Carob Powder)
2 teaspoons sweetener (optional)
Dark chocolate chips, walnuts, dried fruit, or other mix-ins (optional) 


With a fork, mash the banana into a smooth puree 

Mix the almond butter, egg, cocoa powder, and extra sweetener [if using] into the banana puree until it forms an even batter
Fold in any mix-ins into the batter that you’d like
Pour the batter into a mug or other microwave safe container. Be sure to only fill the container up to 2/3 full because it will expand in the microwave
Microwave on high for 2 and 1/2 – 3 minutes until the center is set. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave and enjoy hot, cold, or at room temperature

I had an observer :)
-- All the Best
