Fudgy Nutella Mug Cake


I created this recipe for a somewhat healthier version of an easy Nutella mug cake so I wouldn't use so much Nutella. Let it rest for 2 to 4 minutes after cooking, but enjoy it warm.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Cook Time:
2 mins
Additional Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
12 mins


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 ½ tablespoons almond milk, divided

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)


  1. Stir all-purpose flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together in a small bowl; add 3 tablespoons almond milk, vanilla extract, Nutella and 1/2 tablespoon milk, respectively, stirring between each addition until you finally have a smooth batter. Transfer batter to mug.

  2. Cook in microwave for 1 minute. Allow to rest for about 5 seconds and continue cooking until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 seconds more.

  3. Let cake cool for 2 to 4 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can subsitiute 7/8 tablespoon whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour.
