Paleo Chocolate Microwaved Mug Cake


This is one recipe which we discovered due to "desperate craving". We came back from dinner at a friend place and were both sitting on the couch.. craving for some treats. There were none at home :(

Google did not fail us that night.... googled and found numerous recipe for microwave chocolate cake. I randomly chose one and showed it to the BF. And Bingo... he was in the kitchen baking one.  I was skeptical at first as I am a firm believer that cakes need to be bake in proper oven.. mircowave does not do the job. I was wrong. The recipe was yummy that the BF has since made it 3 times.... and I am sure more in the near future

1 small ripe banana
1 1/2 Tablespoons almond butter(or any nut butter)
1 egg
2 heaping Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons sweetener(We used honey.. 2 table spoon or more)
Chocolate chips, walnuts, dried fruit, or other mix-ins(optional)

1. With a fork, mash the banana into a smooth puree.
2. Mix the almond butter, egg, cocoa powder, and extra sweetener if using into the banana puree until it forms an even batter.
3. Fold in any mix-ins into the batter that you’d like.
4.  Pour the batter into a mug or other microwave safe container.  Microwave on high for 2 and 1/2 minutes until the center is set. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave and enjoy hot, cold, or at room temperature.
