Your New Fave Gluten-Free Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

February 22, 2021

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!

Make This Decadent Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe! 


  • 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.
  • If you prefer to use an oven, bake your mug cake in an oven-safe dish at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

Dessert in one minute?! YESSSSS.

When you make this, tag me on Instagram or let me know in the comments so I can see your chocolate mug cake! YAY! If you want more recipes like this, try my 90 Day Journey Meal Plans!

    Yum!! I love chocolate! 🍫 I still make your microwave berry muffins in a mug. I’m looking forward to trying this one! 🙂 Xx

    I baked mine in the oven and it took about 20 minutes. The end result was like fluffy chocolate scrambled eggs. Not quite what I had in mind 😆 But I really appreciate that you made a chocolate recipe!

      Oh no! Did you mix all the ingredients well and use enough banana? It shouldn’t taste or look like scrambled eggs!

      1. K says:

        I’ll give it another try with a larger banana!

    Dear Cassey,
    I started my fitness journey in the beginning of quarantine, and I’ve been doing bodyweight workouts ever since. I heard how beneficial strength training can be, and as a 14 year old, I want to try it out myself!
    However, my parents are not so convinced by this idea, they think it might stunt my growth. I am not very tall to begin with, and I still have more time to grow, but I was wondering if using light dumbbells (1-3 kgs) and resistance bands could affect my height??
