Fluffy 3 minute chocolate mug cake – paleo, Gluten-free, dairy free, sugar free

Just amazing. Like real, fluffy, chocolatey cake, but with no sugar or grains, and in 3 minutes. 

Like a few paleo chocolate cakes I’ve tried this isn’t overly sweet, its quite a dark chocolatey flavour that would be perfect with a lighter, slightly sweeter filling like fresh strawberries and coconut cream.  The original recipe called for 2tbsp of honey so I guess you could up the truvia a little, but I find less is more with calorie free sweeteners to avoid the taste becoming impaired.
