  • 6 tablespoons almond flour

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons low-calorie natural sweetener (such as Swerve®) (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted


  1. Mix together almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

  2. Beat eggs in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add melted coconut oil and beaten eggs to the almond flour mixture, whisking everything together with a fork.

  3. Lightly grease 2 microwave-safe mugs. Pour batter into mugs, leaving at least 1 inch of empty space at the top so the cakes can rise.

  4. Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Test cakes for doneness. Continue cooking in 10 second-intervals, if necessary, until cakes are cooked through and not runny in the middle.
