  • 2 tbsp Good Earth Almond Flour
  • 1 tbsp Good Earth Golden Granulated Natural Unrefined Cane Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Good Earth Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2-3 tbsp Alpro Soya High Protein Chocolate Drink
  • 1 tbsp Plamil Dairy Free Chocolate Drops
  • 1 tbsp add-ins of choice berries, nuts (optional)


  • Grease a microwave-safe mug or bowl and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the almond butter and chocolate drink and mix until a smooth batter remains. If it is too thick, add a little extra milk. (one tablespoon at a time)
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Gently pour the batter into the greased mug/bowl.
  • Top with extra chocolate drops/mix-ins of choice.
  • Microwave for 1-2 minutes, until cooked.
  • Allow the mug cake to cool for a minute.
  • Enjoy!


This recipe can be made directly into the mug/bowl, however, I noticed that the cake turns out better when ingredients are mixed in a separate bowl. With a few tweaks, this cake can also be keto-friendly by substituting the sugar for stevia or erythritol, using sugar-free chocolate chips and unsweetened milk. If you do not own a microwave, you can bake the cake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
