4-Ingredient Raspberry Chocolate Mug Cake


All it takes to whip up this delicious, super-moist, fluffy and nourishing creation is just four ingredients and one minute.

Vegan-friendly too, our raspberry chocolate mug cake is loaded with gooey chocolate and raspberries, and is also naturally paleo, gluten-free, not to mention free of refined sugar.

Unlike conventional cakes, this nutritious chocolate raspberry cake has no butter, oil, flour or sugar at all - it uses the mashed, overripe banana for sweetness.

The tartness of the raspberries, sweetness of the banana and the rich notes of the dark cocoa powder = HEAVEN. It’s the ultimate sweet snack to relish whenever you like - or as a post-dinner treat. Why not have it for dessert after eating our super-tasty three bean salad or once you’ve devoured our delicious gourmet pumpkin protein burger?

Did You Know?

Low in calories and fat, cholesterol-free and high in fibre and vitamin C, raspberries are a heart-healthy food. Raspberries are also a powerful source of the flavonoids quercetin and gallic acid, which have been shown to play a role in heart health and the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, obesity and age-related deterioration. Raspberry ketones are similar to capsaicin, found in red pepper, which can hinder the growth of cancer cells.
