I have to give myself a pat on the back because this is DELICIOUS.
If you love chocolate then you’re in for a treat.

What you’ll need:

  • Coffee Mug
  • 1 Tbsp Butter or Coconut Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Almond Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • Optional: 1 tsp maple syrup, swerve, coconut sugar 
  • 71-90% chocolate chips or large cut up chocolate bar chunks
  • Optional: Cream cheese (both lactose and non lactose free work just fine)
How to:
  • In your mug melt 1 tbsp of butter
  • Once butter is melted, add almond flour, and cocoa powder – whisk together
  • Add in egg, baking powder, cream cheese (optional) – whisk together
  • Add in chocolate of choice and slightly stir
  • Place in microwave for 60-90 seconds on HIGH

Result: hot, gooey, chocolate molten lava goodness all in your cup!

 

Just writing this I’m drooling 😉 

Topping:

Feel free to go wild and add whatever you’d like. I know some readers follow particular ways of eating so feel free to add your own little touch to it! 🙂 If I have time or if i’m not too lazy (haha)… I make a whipped cream topping.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Electric Hand Mixer
  • ¼ cup of whipping cream
  • 1 splash of vanilla extract

Optional: sweetener (1 tsp will suffice)

 

How to:

Place in bowl and *cue Michael Jackson song* Beat it! Beat it until its fluffy.

 

*This really curbs my sweet tooth. If you’re not Keto then please feel free to add a heaping scoop of ice cream of choice on top.*

Recipe Notes

I found by adding in the cream cheese (I used lactose free) it gave it a more gooey brownie texture that I really liked.

 

You can add your own choice of sweetener. Personally I don’t add any if I’m using 71 %. I will add 1 tsp of maple syrup if I decide to use 90% chocolate  just to cut the bitterness.

 

For those of you who might be like “whatttt?”… the higher the percentage of chocolate – the more bitter it is because it contains less sugahhhhh!

 

WARNING: It’s hot! So blow on it before you eat it. Otherwise you’ll catch yourself going “Hasafashafsas” aka the sound you make when you’re eating something hot.

 

You would think I would learn my lesson after burning my mouth a few too many times (I couldn’t help but inhale it, I was so excited to eat it!!)

 

I hope you enjoy it!
