Paleo Chocolate Mug Cake

20121208-171735.jpg

A recipe modified from The Wannabe Chef, a blog I came across online! These fancy things are everywhere ❤ The cake itself, is paleo, but the frosting I made is not! I'll list a paleo option though you could use, you've gotta really like chocolate though lol-chocolate on chocolate!

Ingredients (for 1 cake):

-1 small ripe banana
-1 1/2 Tbsp almond butter(or any nut butter)
-1 egg
2 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp sweetener(optional-use if your banana isn't fully ripe…mine wasn't, I was an eager beaver as always so I added maple syrup)
-1 tsp cinnamon
-Anything you want to mix in! Nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc.

Directions:

-With a fork, mash the banana into a smooth puree.
-Mix the almond butter, egg, cocoa powder, and extra sweetener if using into the banana puree until it forms an even batter.
-Fold in any additional ingredients into the batter that you’d like. Otherwise, our the batter into a mug or other microwave safe container. Be sure to only fill the container up to 2/3rds the way because it will expand in the microwave.
-Microwave on high for 2 and 1/2 minutes until the center is set. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave and enjoy hot, cold, or at room temperature.
-Top however you wish!

Ingredients (frosting):

-1 tsp melted coconut oil
-1 tbsp pb2 (powdered peanut butter), or you could use cocoa powder to keep it paleo
-2 tsp sweetener- I like using pure maple syrup

Directions:

-Mix all ingredients together and pour away 🙂
