Chocolate Almond Mug Cake

I’m so excited that it’s Friday that I’m having a hard time sitting still to write this post!

I’ve been wanting to make an almond flavored mug cake for a while now. I love almond flavored things: almond cookies, almond milk, raw almonds, roasted almonds, chocolate covered almonds, etc.

So I set about making an almond mug cake and then realized I was out of almond butter. But luckily I did still have some chocolate almond butter which I bought from Trader Joe’s.

A couple of ingredients, stir and mix, and then I was treated to this chocolate almond mug cake a few minutes later. I want to try to make a gluten free one with almond flour eventually.

If you don’t have chocolate almond butter, I think regular almond butter will work too.
