60 Second Chocolate Mug Cake

This week I have discovered the MUG CAKE and OMG it is to die for. After realising I was eating far too much sugar, I wanted to find an alternative without denying or restricting myself. This mug cake was exactly what I needed. Using the coconut sugar makes in low GI plus it can easily be made gluten and dairy free, depending on what flour and milk you choose.

I hope you enjoy it.
