Chocolate Raspberry Mug Cake
-2 1/2 tablespoons Coconut flour
-2 tablespoons nut milk
-Splash of vanilla extract
-2 tablespoons apple sauce
-2 tablespoons peanut butter
-1 tablespoon honey
Bake for about 25 mins at 350 in an oven safe mug or mini cast iron skillet.
Topped with 100 percent dark cacao but any chocolate would work, peanut butter and raspberries.
Most of my recipes are grain free and dairy free simply because my body has a hard time digesting these foods. Using coconut flour allows this mug cake to have a very similar texture to that of traditional cake. I make my own nut milk at home using just nuts and water and so that is what I used here. I choose applesauce rather than oils because I prefer a more natural and less processed ingredient. It really does work so well as an oil replacer! My sweetener of choice for each of my recipes are either honey, maple syrup or dates. This allows desserts to actually taste like desserts but without all of that processed sugar! Peanut butter is probably my favorite thing in the world so I try to add it to lots of recipes. It really is the perfect way to provide healthy fats and protein while filling you up. I chose to go with 100 percent dark cacao because there is no sugar added. Nothing is added. It is chocolate in its natural form which is rich in antioxidants. Raspberries add the perfect flavor to this mug cake! The sweet and tangy flavor works so well with the bitter chocolate.
