Ingredients to make 4 medium size Mug cakes:
Dry ingredients:

  • 40g organic coconut flour
  • 30g organic cocoa powder
  • 15g of vanilla Paleo Protein (I use Nutri-Dyn Paleo Protein)
  • 1/2 tsp home-made baking powder

Wet ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 120 ml coconut milk
  • 4 Tbs spoons melted coconut oil
  • 50ml of organic maple syrup (can add one extra Tbs depending on how sweet you want your desert to be)
  • 1 tsp or 5ml vanilla
  • Optional: a handful of organic Walnuts or Pecans
  • Optional: a handful of 100% organic chocolate chunks (you can substitute your favorite chocolate)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400*F (200*C)
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in one bowl
  3. Mix together wet ingredients in another bowl
  4. Combine together wet and dry ingredients and blend until smooth
  5. Prepare 4 oven-safe mugs or mini bowls
  6. Pour the batter in each mug, make sure you fill the batter to ¾ of the height of the mug to ensure some extra space as these cakes grow
  7. Optional: in each mug add a bit of nut and/or chocolate chunk
  8. Gently dip in the nuts and chocolate chunks in the batter
  9. Put your mug cakes in the oven for 12-13 minutes (the batter should still be moist in the center)
  10. I recommend having them warm

Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream and enjoy!

Side Note: Dark chocolate contains several compounds that possess antioxidant properties, such as flavanols and polyphenols.
