With only a few ingredients and baked straight in the oven, this Chocolate Mug Cake is simple to make. It's ideal for a quick chocolate dessert!



  1. 1. Add coconut oil to 12oz mug and place in preheated oven to 350°F. I use a toaster oven.

    2. After 1 min, remove mug and rotate to coat the entire inside with the oil.

    3. Whisk the egg in a small bowl, then whisk in the honey, almond milk, and vanilla.

    4. Stir in the almond meal, cocoa powder, flaxseed meal, salt, baking soda, and espresso powder until smooth.

    5. Pour off any extra coconut oil from the mug into the batter and stir it in.

    6. Pour the batter into the prepared mug and bake in oven at 350°F for 15 min.

    7. Note the mug will be very hot and cake will continue to cook after you remove it
