(Paleo) Carrot Cake In A Mug

Adapted from SouthBeachPrimal


Serves 2

1 ½ tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 large egg

1 ½ tablespoons almond flour

1 ½ tablespoons coconut flour

2 tablespoons shredded carrot

Small handful chopped walnuts (or pecans)

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon baking powder


1 tablespoon cream cheese

2 teaspoons maple syrup

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


In a mug melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds — until just melted, not boiling.

Add maple syrup and egg and whisk with a fork.

Add almond flour, coconut flour, carrot, walnuts, cinnamon, and baking powder. Mix until well combined.

Microwave on high for 1½ to 2 minutes,  depending on how powerful your microwave is.

In the meantime make the frosting by combining in a small bowl the cream cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.

Once the mug cake has cooled down, layer it with frosting and enjoy!
