Best Coconut Flour Chocolate Mug Cake Ever! Gluten Free!

Swanson Organic Coconut Flour

I have tried many many mug cakes. Some were full of expensive protein powder and tasted foul. Some were too dry or too wet. I went on a mission  to create my chocolate single serving cake. I accomplished this by using my favorite flour.  I tested out 7 different brands of coconut flour for this recipe. To read more on how well each brand works click on over to this post.

This mug cake turned out amazingly well! It took 5 minutes to make and is low calorie, low carb, and grain free! I am a huge lover of chocolate and this satisfies my huge cravings with a small amount of calories. I could eat one everyday and still be able to wear a bikini come summer time. Topped with my quick peanut butter frosting this becomes a treat to sit and savor. Go! Run to the kitchen and make one. You know you want to.

    Just found this while searching for coconut flour and chocolate and single serve – it was exactly what I’d hoped for. I omitted the stevia and still loved it! Thanks!! I’ll be making this again!

    It’s my birthday today! It’s been a long time since I have had birthday cake, and I decided this morning that I needed to research my options. That’s how I found your blog and recipes. I use several kinds of GF flours – so I always have some on hand. Coconut four is my newest addition to my panty, and I’m still learning how to cook with it – as far nutrition goes, I think it’s one of the best flours available. 🙂 I decided to make this right away, even though I did not have any bananas. For the banana I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce. My coconut flour is from, and here is the breakdown with 14g (2 Tbls): Calories 60; Total Fat 1.5 g; Carbs 10 g; Fiber 6 g; Protein 2 g. My cake came out pretty tall, so I think it might be what you call “spongy”. It took 3 minutes to cook. I have not tasted it yet – it will be my special treat after dinner tonight with my family. Thank you so much for the recipe. I look forward to making this again – using banana next time. 🙂

      Happy Birthday Beckie! Thanks for the detailed information on the coconut flour. I’m going to check them out now. I really hope you enjoy your special birthday mug cake. I have not tested this cake with applesauce so please let me know how it turned out for you. It is totally worth trying again with the banana too. I don’t eat these often, but each time I do I am transported into chocolate cake heaven.

    OMG, so good. I used too small of a cup and it went over. Not one to waste, I ate it 🙂 and then finished baking it. I ate it hot and it was like a chocolate lava cake.
