Almond Flour Mug Cake

I’ve been making mug cakes for years now If I’m craving something healthy, but sweet.

Most of the time I use protein powder as my flour, and from time to time a mix of gluten free flour with the protein powder.

The other day I tried making a mug cake with just almond flour and no protein powder and I am in LOVE!

This is definitely my favorite mug cake ingredients, and it literally took me around 3 minutes to make…including mixing the ingredients up!


1/4 or 1/3 cup almond flour 

-1 egg

-1/4 tsp baking powder

-pinch of salt

-1 tsp sweetener of choice (I did a couple squeezes of my liquid stevia)

I used this almond flour, which can be found at Costco, or, another kind I love, which you can find here. It’s much more cost savvy when buying in bulk.


1. Spray a coffee mug with nonstick spray.

2. Mix all ingredients together well, and microwave for 1 minute to 1 min and 30 seconds.

(Each microwave is different and may have different wattages. Stick 1 minute first, then check to see if it needs to go longer. If so, stick to 30 sec intervals)

One of my favorite things to top these mug cakes off with is powdered peanut butter. One of my go to brands lately have been PBFit brand. Costco also has been having this brand, but you can also find it here.

The great thing about this basic mug cake recipe, is you can mix and match flavors/spices.

Sprinkle in cinnamon + nutmeg, or even pumpkin pie spice as fall approaches!

Spoon in some cocoa powder to make it chocolate!

I may even try adding a drop or two of essential oils, like Orange or Lemon vitality! 

I ate every last bit of this and will continue to do so every time I make these! 😊
