Step by Step Instructions:
This healthy Peanut Butter Mug Cake will be satisfying your sweet tooth in no time. Here’s what you’ll need: Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, Baking Powder, Natural Peanut Butter, Almond Milk, Mini Chocolate Chips (about a tablespoon or 1 1/2 tablespoons), Vanilla Bean Paste (or extract), 1 Egg, and Coconut Flour.
Begin by measuring out 1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Pop the oil in the microwave for 15-30 seconds until it’s melted and clear.
In a small bowl measure 2 tablespoons of coconut flour and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
Then whisk the dry ingredients.
Then add in your wet ingredients including 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter, the coconut oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of almond milk, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste.
Whisk the ingredients together until the batter is well combined.
If you’d like, which you should, add in a teaspoon or two of mini chocolate chips.
Then carefully pour the batter into a microwave safe mug. Top with a few more chips.
Heat the cake at high heat for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave. Check on it 2 minutes in as it may be done. (Mine was done after 2 minutes.) Let the cake sit and cool in the mug for 2 to 5 minutes. Top with more chips, if desired. Then enjoy! Happy microwaving/baking!
