Chocolate coconut mug cake

Recipes 28/06/2018

The perfect healthy sweet treat to whip up in under 5 minutes.

Serves Prep Time 2 Minutes Cook Time 3 Minutes


  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 3 Tbsp oil (we love Olivado Liquid Coconut Oil)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut sugar (we love Avalanche)
  • 3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa (we love Avalanche)
  • 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (we love Woodland Free Range)
  • 3 Tbsp milk (coconut or dairy)

To serve: coconut yoghurt or ice cream (we love The Coconut Collaborative)


  1. Add dry ingredients to a coffee mug and mix well with a fork.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix well, being sure to scrape the edges of the cup to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
  5. Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
  6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug and then sink down when the microwave is turned off. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate. Run a knife around the edge if it doesn’t slide out easily. Serve with coconut yoghurt or ice cream.
