  • 2 Tablespoons dark chocolate chips (25 g)
  • 4 Tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons whole rice flour if you're not gluten free, you can use your regular all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar of your choice (unrefined cane sugar, muscovado, coconut sugar...)
  • 1 teaspoon (gluten-free) baking powder


  • Pour the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons almond milk in a microwave safe mug. Heat the chocolate and almond milk in the microwave oven for 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on the power of your microwave oven) in order to melt the chocolate. Mix the chocolate and almond milk with a spoon until well combined.
  • Add all the other ingredients and the 2 other tablespoons of almond milk. Mix all your ingredients until well combined.
  • Put your mug back in the microwave oven and cook it for 30 seconds to 1 minute. And voilà, it’s ready!
    Bon appétit !


Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is calculated using a nutrition facts calculator. It is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
Make sure to use a microwave safe mug. Also make sure that it is big enough as the batter will rise quite a bit during the cooking process. I suggest using an 11-ounce mug for this recipe.
The cooking time will vary slightly based on the mug that you use and your microwave. 45 seconds to 1 minute is perfect for me but it will vary slightly for you. So keep a close eye on it.
