On the days that I have run out of my most recent batch of baked goods and need something sweet after dinner (which is every day, let’s just be honest), mug cakes are my best friend. Count me in for anything that is ready in under 2 minutes!

This mug cake recipe is inspired by what was once one of my favorite candy bars. I remember my friends giving me their almond joys post trick or treating when we were in elementary school because I was the only 10-year-old who liked coconut and almonds. I guess not much has changed!

This mug cake is so soft and fluffy. The coconut flour not only gives it a subtle coconut taste but also gives it an amazing texture! I hope you try it out and love it as much as I do.
