Healthy Gluten Free Chocolate Nut Butter Mug Cake

July 6, 2016 • By

So I’ve been making a super low cal mug cake recipe for a while and it’s good if you are looking for low calorie, no nut butter.  Find it here – 100 calorie chocolate cake. But if you are more concerned about paleo/clean eating/etc, I adapted that recipe and came up with this one for you:

Healthy Gluten Free Chocolate Nut Butter Mug Cake

mug cake ingredients


  • 2 tbsn of stevia or sugar substitute (I only had sweet n low on hand)  😐
  • 1.5 tbsn gluten free flour
  • 1 tbsn egg white substitute or 1 egg white from egg
  • 2 tbsn unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsn unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsn natural almond or peanut butter (your choice crunchy or smooth – I love Adam’s Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter)


Combine the stevia or sugar substitute, gluten free flour, egg white, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a mug and mix.  Add the milk and nut butter and stir til smooth.
