Dessert Paleo Recipes

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Do you ever have those moments where you just need. dessert. IMMEDIATELY ?

Sometimes my sweet tooth is so vicious all I can think about is dessert. Chocolate cake, specifically. But to be honest, I haven’t made a full cake in probably 5 years.

I was kinda craving making one for my birthday this year, but I think I’ll just go the lazy route and whip up this almond butter chocolate chip mug cake for two instead.

Hope you enjoy my quick dessert fix! If you make this recipe, I highly suggest using a larger and taller/wider mug. The cake rises a bunch in the microwave!
