GF Chocolate Mug Cake

I often have cravings for sweet baked goods, and given that I’m not really adept at gluten free baking (I’d gotten pretty good at baking with regular flour), and most recipes call for 7 different flours that all cost mad money, I’ve resorted to looking up those little chocolate mug cakes to satisfy small cravings.

I’ve looked up several different recipes for a gluten free version and tried 3 or 4, but none of them were really all that great. Today I just decided to wing and throw a bunch of stuff in a cup. It came out pretty good, probably the best balance of textures, a little dense. The only thing I would change is maybe a little less coconut flour, a little vanilla, and more chocolate.


  • 2 tbs coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup water (or until its a decent consistency)
  • 1 tsp oil

I melted half the chocolate and mixed it with the egg. Mix all the dry ingredients together and then mix everything together in the cup stirring in the last half of the chocolate. Pop it in the microwave for a minute and you’re ready to go.
