Coconut mug cake + PB “frosting”

I’ve been super into “cake in a mug” recipes lately. It’s easy, quick, microwaveable and it means there’s no way I’ll accidentally eat a whole cake! Plus, since I don’t really eat gluten anymore, I don’t think a whole gluten-free cake would be that appealing. So I give you tonight’s creation…

Coconut mug cake + PB “frosting”


  • 3 T coconut flour
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • shake of baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • couple splashes of almond milk
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • 2 tsp cream cheese
  • spoonful of maple syrup
  1. Mix coconut flour, sugar, baking powder, egg and milk in a small bowl.
  2. Grease or spray a small mug or jar and pour batter in. Microwave on full power for about 1:30-2:00.
  3. Slide it out of container and onto a plate–there’s your cake part!
  4. In a separate container, mix the peanut butter, cream cheese and maple syrup. You could also use Greek yogurt! That’s your frosting. :)
