Before going fully vegan I was kinda hooked on coconut flour mug cakes……like eating them every day type hooked. The trouble they mostly contain egg so I’ve been meaning to, for like ever, get experimenting with a vegan chocolate coconut flour mug cake. I’m now done. And it’s good. Really good.

A few minor points first. I no longer have a microwave so this was cooked in the oven………and not in a mug but more a generously proportioned ramekin dish. So this is kind of like a selfish single serving of moist chocolatey coconut cake! However, I have high hopes you can in fact put this in a mug and then the microwave 😉 and voila – a selfish single serving microwave mug cake!

Besides, the cooking method this is a real gem of a cake. I’m in love:

a truly healthy snack
no grain – low carb
higher in protein + fibre than your average ‘cake’
low calorie, if that’s your thing
super quick, like super, super
full of the goodness of cocoa + coconut flour
rich chocolatey cake texture + taste

By the way, there’s never anything wrong with chocolate sauce on top. Never.

Chocolate Coconut Flour Mug Cake (No Dairy, No Egg, Paleo)

(for just you)

1 vegan Orgran egg (1 heaped teaspoon egg replacer : 2 tablespoons water)
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 heaping tablespoon coconut flour
optional (but probably wise!): dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC + add the egg replacer to a small ramekin pot or mug.
2. Add the remaining ingredients + make sure the mixture is a smooth consistency. Fold through chocolate chips if using.
3. Bake for 20 minutes + devour after a little cooling.

Notes: As I no longer have a microwave I decided to use the oven as it really doesn’t take that long. However, my previous mug cake was cooked in the microwave (800w for 90 seconds on high). I’m almost certain this would work here but as I haven’t tried it I can’t make that a promise 😉

    • Hi Kaela, thanks for dropping by – at the moment we don’t have any nutritional information for this, but we’ll certainly post a comment in this section as soon as we do.
      Did you try this recipe?

  1. I just made this as my sweet tooth would not go away! I added some butter to the mix and a bit more Armond milk so it was quite a wet consistency before putting in the microwave. It was actually really nice and for someone who is new to the keto diet A definite winner for curbing a sweet craving. Extremely filling as well!!! Thanks for this. Nat
