So with a little help from google and a little tweaking, thanks to ingredients on hand, we gave a primal version of the Chocolate Mug Cake a go. I wasn't a huge fan of the original, but this is actually pretty delish. And the bigger owlets rather fancy it too and can't believe that much awesome can happen in two minutes. Tiny isn't in on the secret right now as almond meal is pretty much the worst thing for severe tooth decay, so I wouldn't recommend it if you have that going on, although soaking the almonds first would help... And the microwave probably kills the goodness in the awesome real food ingredients, but sometimes a little lazy indulgence is called for...
Chocolate Mug Cake
1 mug or cup sized ramekin
3 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp almond meal
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp maple syrup
Melt butter in the microwave, in your mug.
Add all other ingredients and mix until well combined - little lumps are ok.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook it on high for 2 minutes.
Eat with lashings of cream if so desired. Feel smug. And enjoy. xx
