Coconut flour pumpkin mug cake

This recipe is almost sugar detox friendly, but I cheated a little bit with the addition of stevia. Sometimes dessert cravings strike and you just need a little instant gratification without too much guilt. This dessert is perfect for times like that.

Ingredients:
1/4 c pumpkin purée
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp honey or 1 packet stevia
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbs milk
2 tbs coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt

1. Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately. Combine in a lightly greased mug.

2. Microwave for 90 seconds. Enjoy!

The pumpkin works well in this recipe! It keeps the coconut flour moist. I had my mug cake with a little whipped cream.

Sugar detox mug cake

I finally decided to take on the challenge of making a sugar detox friendly dessert! This mug cake is a perfect treat to enjoy when you’re craving baked goods and need them now!

Ingredients:
1 egg
1/2 green tipped banana
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs coconut milk (or whole milk)
2 tbs coconut flour
Dash of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

1. Begin with a lightly greased mug. Mash the first 4 ingredients well. Add the remaining three ingredients and combine thoroughly.

2. Microwave for 1:30-2:00 mins until the batter has risen and is set.

3. If you’re feeling fancy, top the mug cake with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or make a banana cream “frosting” by blending the remaining 1/2 banana with a bit of heavy cream or coconut milk.

Not bad! It’s a bit dry and not as sweet as it could be (obviously), but it’s pretty darn good for a no-sweetener dessert!

I’ll work on other variations for you to try soon!
