This easy single-serving cake is whipped together in just a minute…and it all comes together in a mug. Using almond flour makes it gluten-free for those who are eating for inflammation, celiac, and/or diabetes. Or for the momma who wants to stop for a sweet moment in her day. Using almond flour also increases the protein and healthy fat, while making it “lower” carb than an original cake. It has a light texture and satisfies that dark chocolate sweet tooth…
Let’s get started, shall we??? Add a few, simple ingredients into a dome-shaped mug…
Whisk together in that same mug – part of the enjoyment is low clean-up!
Microwave that mug for 1 minute. If it looks too liquidy, cook it another 10 seconds at a time until the batter is no longer glossy. THEN, turn that mug over onto a plate…
I love to top this with some berries – whatever is in season…
And, of course, a drizzle of melted dark chocolate. Don’t forget, the darker the chocolate, the more health benefits you will receive…
Dig in to your gluten-free, grain-free, smooth and chocolatey little minute mug cake!
And because I always love the photos that let me see inside the creation…
Enjoy responsibility! This cake is great for small moments of quite celebration. And while the health benefits of dark chocolate are numerous, but this is one of those treats that is meant for every once in awhile. I would love to know if you get a chance to try it – snap a pic of your mug cake, and tag me on your social media! …I would love to see what you create!
I created this recipe for Albertsons Safeway.
2 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt (sweetened with stevia)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (100% cacao)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill Superfine Almond Flour)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
4 fresh raspberries
1. In a small bowl, whisk egg for 1 minute with a fork. Add yogurt, maple syrup and cocoa powder, stirring until smooth and all the cocoa powder has been absorbed.
2. Add in flour and baking powder, and stir just until mixed. Pour mixture into a large mug sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle in 2 teaspoons of dark chocolate chips. Microwave on high for 1 minute (possibly 30 more seconds depending on your microwave. OR you can bake it for 15 minutes at 400 degrees!).
3. Remove and let cake cool for 30 seconds. Carefully turn it out onto a plate, and top cake with raspberries. Microwave the last teaspoon of dark chocolate chips just until melted, then pour over the top of raspberries. Enjoy immediately!

I absolutely love this mug cake! I’m a huge fan of quick, healthy, and delicious recipes and this one has quickly become a favorite treat for my husband and me. I love that it’s easy to throw together, made with good-for-you ingredients, and it tastes amazing! The texture is wonderful. It’s the perfect little healthy indulgence with just the right amount of sweetness. I love that you explain the health benefits of the ingredients you use. It inspires me to be more conscious of what I eat and make better food choices. Thank you for sharing your awesome recipes!
Naly, this is the best reply ever! lol. Thank you so much for the compliments. I’m so happy to know that you loved it. Getting the texture right with those other flours can be tricky, and I want things to be so perfect for my users. Health recipes have to live above reproach! They get enough heat as it is. It’s an honor to be in your kitchen and a part of your health journey. Keep up the consciousness – it impacts those around you!
My little boy and I just made this mug cake! It was delicious and super fun! Will definitely be making this again! He was so excited to help!
Tyra! Yay! I’m glad he had fun making it. I love it when my little (but getting bigger) Honor is in the kitchen with me….a prime memory-making place. Thank you for this comment!
