Brownie mug cake – paleo & vegan

Sometimes all we need is a quick and healthy fix for sweet cravings… especially if you are very busy and don’t have a lot of time to be in the kitchen enjoying a homemade treat is very rare. But this recipe will be the game changer. My brownie mug cake is not only on the lower calorie side but also paleo and optionally vegan whilst at the same time so delicious!

To make the mug cake even more moist I would recommend adding a teaspoon coconut oil to the dough. This is not a must but if you can handle adding some more fat, than definitely give it a go!

If you opt for the vegan version, you don’t need to add anything special – just a little bit more liquid to replace the egg white does the job!
