Chocolate Mug Cake (Grain Free, Dairy Free)

I created this recipe when my husband was working swing shift and I wanted a sweet treat that was grain free after the kids go to bed. I do eat grains but I try to limit myself a bit because I just feel better when I do.

I found that it was hard for me to finish the entire thing. I often left 1/3 of it and my husband would finish it when he got home. I made it for him though and he had no problem finishing the entire mug.

This mug cake is light and fluffy and fairly simple to throw together if you just need a treat for one or two.

I thought it would be the perfect Valentine treat to enjoy together. It is simple enough for anyone to throw together and you can really dress it up to make it look special.

2 TBSP. Coconut Flour

1 TBSP. Cocoa Powder

¼ tsp. Baking Powder
