  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 2 tbsp (14 g) oat flour, gluten-free if needed
  • 2 tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 banana, mashed (50 g or 1/4 cup)
  • 23 tsp (812 g) coconut palm sugar*
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) unsweetened almond milk

  • sprinkle of dairy free chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Add the oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt to a small bowl, stirring until well combined.

  3. Transfer the batter to a microwave-safe mug or 8 oz. ramekin. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. If the muffin has not set by then, continue to microwave in 30 sec intervals until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Carefully remove from the microwave (mug will be hot!), sprinkle with chocolate chips, grab a spoon, and enjoy!


* You can use any sugar you have on hand. Granulated, brown, coconut, etc. OR use maple syrup or agave to make this refined sugar free.
