  • Microwave


  • cup almonds or pecans or 6 Tbsp almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar or sweetener of choice pinch stevia or additional 2 tsp sugar
  • Tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp milk of choice or 2 if using liquid sweetener
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Optional chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips


  • Combine all ingredients in a greased ramekin or small mug.
  • Either bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 10 minutes, or cook in the microwave. If microwaving, time will vary depending on wattage and desired gooeyness. I started with 30 seconds, then added two 15-second intervals after that.
  • The cake will look a bit gooey when it comes out, and it firms up as it cools. But there’s no need to wait for it to firm up too much — this cake is meant to be eaten straight from the mug
