The quickest chocolate cake you’ll ever make (paleo style)

I never thought I would eat a dessert made in a microwave. I’ve seen them, but they just never appeal to me.

But when I came across this recipe I knew it would be super easy to convert to paleo and I was too intrigued not to try. So I did.

And yum. I’m glad I tried it. I will definitely be making it again. Sorry there are no pictures. It was devoured entirely too quickly.

Here’s my version:


  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp almond meal
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Grease a large microwave safe mug with coconut oil. In a separate bowl, combine your flours with your baking powder and salt until combined. Transfer to the mug. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug and gently mix with a fork until blended. Don’t over mix, but make sure to get all the all the dry ingredients from the bottom of the mug incorporated.

Microwave on high for 1.5 minutes to 3 minutes depending on your microwave. (Mine took 1 minute 45 seconds). The cake should be moist, but not wet when it is done.

And that’s all. Super easy and delicious. This is enough to share between 2 people.
