"This is my favorite paleo mug cake recipe that I altered. It's a quick dessert that satisfies any sugar or chocolate craving! Coffee can be used in place of coffee extract."

chocolate chips, or more to taste
Looking for a sweet treat, I decided to try this mug cake to change things up from the other recipe I normally use. This was very good and quick! The only changes I made were to use coconut oil instead of olive oil (I find the olive oil flavor too strong for cakes) and I used vanilla extract instead of coffee extract. This rose beautifully and I enjoyed the light texture. Also, unlike the other mug cake I make, this one pulled away from the sides nicely and could have easily been turned onto a plate. No sticking! And no time for a pic either! Thanks for sharing your recipe DenaMarie!
Use big mugs!!! Rises a ton!!! Tastes good
I didn't have any eggs so I used liquid egg whites and it turned out amazing!! This is the best cake I've ever tasted paleo or not! I'll definitely be making it again!!
I followed the recipe as written. If you're used to eating paleo this is a great quick treat!
AMAZING!!! I'm new to the paleo diet and was so pleased to find this recipe. It is the best mug cake I have ever tried! I couldn't help but add extra chocolate chips. Thank you!!(:
I loved this!!! I tried it out and I laughed when I saw it rise so fast!! Make sure you use a large cup it's a lot! :)
Tasty and easy. I didn't have coffee extract, used about 1/4 tsp instant coffee
I can't believe it's possible to have a mug of chocolate cake within 5 minutes! I really enjoyed it.
