This chocolate mug cake is a great little snack if you are craving something sweet .. It actually works brilliantly for breakfast. Yes that’s right – I love cake for breakfast !
It’s grain free, gluten free and cane sugar free
Chocolate Mug Cake
2 tbs protein powder try the “no nasties” protein powder from Protein Supplies Australia.
2 tbs almond butter (or other nut butter)
1 tbs stevia powder – I use nativia or preferred sweetner (honey, maple syrup)
1 tbs of Protein Supplies Australia Natural Cacao (use code PSA4 PREGGIBELLIES for 10% off)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 egg (vegan sub for 2 tbs ground flax or chia seeds)
1 tbs milk (I used almond milk)
1 -2 squares organic dark chocolate* – look for a cane sugar free variety.
Coconut cream & berries to serve
*you can also add some mashed banana for extra natural sweetness
Mix everything (except the coconut cream & berries & choc squares ) in a big mug
Then place your square/s of organic choccy down in the center.
Pop it in the microwave for about 1-2 mins. Start with 1 min and check it to see if it’s done.
Alternatively, you can do this in the oven in a ramekin or muffin tin – but it takes longer !!
Your chocolate in the center should be nice & molten.
Tip it out of the mug into a bowl, pour over coconut cream & berries…. and grate a little more choccie on top if you like !!
Or if you can’t wait (like me) gobble it down straight from the mug with a nice cup of herbal tea
