  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Prep Time: 3 mins
  • Cook Time: 2 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 mug cake 1x


  • 2 Tbsp (14 g) coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp (5 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 large egg OR flax egg*
  • (optional:) 1/2 – 1 Tbsp (5-10 g) dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. If using a flax egg, combine the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a microwave-safe mug or bowl.
  3. Add the maple syrup and milk, stirring until no clumps remain. Add the egg (or flax egg), and use a fork to lightly beat it into the batter, making sure that it’s fully incorporated. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips, reserving a few to sprinkle on the top.
  4. Microwave on high for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, depending on microwave strength and thickness of mug.
  5. Remove from microwave, grab a spoon, and enjoy!


* To make a flax egg, take 1 Tbsp (7 g) of ground flax and combine it with 3 Tbsp (45 ml) of water.
