Your New Fave Gluten-Free Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe – Blogilates

Hey guys!

Have you ever made a mug cake?! It’s the perfect thing to make when you have a craving, but don’t really want an entire cake sitting around. And when a craving for cake strikes, there’s no time to make a complicated recipe, right?! If you’ve never made one, you have to try this recipe!

First, I have a little confession to make: chocolate cake is NOT my jam. Actually, I don’t really eat chocolate at all. The taste is just way too intense for me (I’m a supertaster – it’s really a thing!).  But I know that chocolate cake IS most people’s jam, so I still wanted to take a stab at a recipe for a healthy but decadent chocolate mug cake.

This one is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and added sugar-free.

And you guys. I had my family try this one and they said it is GOOD. They’re brutally honest about what I cook so you can trust them! But obviously, I need your opinion too. So when you try this chocolate mug cake recipe, make sure to tell me what you think!

Okay… mug cake time!


  • 1 Small Extra Ripe Banana
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1-2 Tbsp Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

TOPPING: 1/2 cup raspberries


  1. Combine all mug cake ingredients in a blender and mix until a batter forms. Pour into a greased mug or small bowl.
  2. Microwave for 60 seconds.
  3. Top with berries!


  • Your cook time could vary, depending on microwave strength.

Dessert in one minute?! YESSSSS.
