Banana Choc-Coconut Mug Cake

I was curious about this phenomenon of the mug cake that I have seen popping up around the place.  Armed with some very ripe bananas from the work fruit box and some coconut flour (my tiny packet has taken forever to get through!), I did some recipe research so I could throw together my version of the mug-cake.

The outcome was made with the following ratios:

Mix the following in a bowl until smooth:
~ 1 medium banana, mashed
~ 1 egg
~ 1 dessert spoon of almond milk
~ 1 tsp agave nectar (you could use honey or rice syrup)
~ drop of vanilla paste
~ sprinkle of chia seeds

Once you have a smooth mixture, add in:
~ 1.5 dessert spoons of coconut flour (be careful, you only need a little as it absorbs a lot of liquid!)
~ 1 tsp cocoa (you could also sub this with cacao)

Mix with a fork until the batter is smooth
Spray the bottom of a med/large mug with coconut oil spray
Place a square of dark chocolate on the bottom of the mug
Pour the batter over the top and microwave for 90-100 seconds
Turn over into a bowl and enjoy!

Here are some of the products I used for the recipe:

    Do you reckon that you could use desiccated coconut instead of coconut flour??

  2. The coconut flour is a lot finer than desiccated coconut so I don’t think it would work as it needs to have some substance… plus the desiccated coconut has a higher fat ratio – I had a look to see if you could turn your desiccated coconut into flour here:
