WHAT YOU NEED

Banana – The foundation of the mug cake.

Coconut Flour – This is my favorite flour to bake with! It creates an amazing texture every time. For this recipe, I used Viva Naturals Coconut Flour.

Egg – Holds the mug cake together!

Chocolate Chips – Use mini ones so the chocolate spreads further!

HOW TO MAKE THIS BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUG CAKE

To make this Banana Chocolate Chip Mug Cake:

1. Mash banana in bowl with fork.

2. Add egg and mix in.

3. Mix in coconut flour.

4. Fold in half of your chocolate chips and pour batter in a mug. Then, top with remaining chocolate chips.

5. Microwave for 1 ½ to 2 ½ minutes. (1 ½ for shallower dishes and 2 ½ for deeper dishes like mugs). Stop at 90 seconds and see if it’s done. If not, microwave at 30 second intervals to prevent overflow.

6. Take out, let cool, and enjoy!

SUBSTITIONS

Coconut flour has different absorbent properties than other flours and therefore bakes differently. I recommend coconut flour for this recipe, but if you need to sub with another flour, here’s what I would suggest:

For 2 tbsp coconut flour, use 3 tbsp of almond flour, all-purpose flour, OR 1:1 gluten-free baking powder.
