(Almost) Single Serving Chocolate Cakes – 2 Ways

Disclaimer: I have no idea what I single serving is for you! And sometimes you want a single serving but for two people, or a large indulgent single serving. So each of these makes TWO servings but I cook them separately. One pot is then perfect for Jared, and I like ½-1 pot but loaded up with full fat yogurt, or nut butter, and berries, or a no sugar chocolate sauce. So decide what’s a single serving for you – and if you truly want one pot then make two and pop one in the freezer!

Gluten/Dairy Free Version

(Makes 2 servings or one large one)

2T honey (use 4 for a sweeter cake, or 2 for a sweet but slightly lower sugar version)

4T soft coconut oil

1 egg

¼ cup oat flour/well ground oats

¼ cup cocoa

½ tsp baking powder

Pinch pink salt

Optional additions – add in 1T chocolate chips to the center (this is what I do and recommend!), or a small handful of berries, or 1-2T chopped nuts

Mix the honey, coconut oil and egg together, then stir in the dry ingredients till they’re fully mixed.  Lastly stir in any additions and then pour into a mini ramekin dish (or oven proof mug) and place in a 350F oven.

Bake for 12-20 minutes – small cakes vary a LOT depending on the oven. If it’s fan assisted (convection) it will take less time, if you’re cooking a few in a toaster oven that isn’t preheated it will take longer. Take it out and 12 and test for a firm top but a springy feel to touch. If it’s not done, put it back for another 5 mins. 

Paleo Version

(Makes 2 servings or one large one)

2T honey (use 4 for a sweeter cake, or 2 for a sweet but slightly lower sugar version)

4T soft coconut oil

1 egg

¼ cup almond flour

¼ cup cocoa

1T arrowroot starch

½ tsp baking powder

Pinch pink salt

Optional additions – add in 1T chocolate chips to the center  (this is what I do and recommend!), or a small handful of berries, or 1-2T chopped nuts


Chocolate Sauce: Whisk the ingredients together with a fork and pour over two mini cakes!

1T maple syrup

2T soft coconut oil

2T cocoa powder

Almond Butter: Pour over 1-2T almond butter and dive in with fruit or extra chopped nuts!

Nut Milk: I love pouring over some creamy nut milk and a few berries!




Honey: Can also use maple syrup, rice syrup, or date syrup – a liquid sweetener works best though. But you could use coconut sugar, or sub it out totally for banana.

Coconut Oil: Pastured butter would also work well here, just make sure it’s at room temperature

Oat flour: could also use spelt/wheat but NOT coconut!

  1. So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just cant resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the waydon’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”

  2. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Cheers! asmr 0mniartist

  3. Your article contains really great and helpful info. Im very satisfied that you simply shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date when you create new blog. If you have some spare time, me very happy if you could skim through my blog on car history report, thank you!

  4. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I
    find this topic to be really something that I feel I’d never
    understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.

    I am having a look ahead in your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the cling of it!

  5. Having read this I thought it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short article
    together. I once again find myself spending
    a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    El postre se debe consumir con moderación, es decir, solo una pequeña porción, para no engordar y llevar una alimentación balanceada.
    A día de hoy, sabemos con certeza que abusar de los azúcares simples no es una buena opción. Estos ingredientes son capaces de condicionar la salud metabólica. Sin embargo, existen otras alternativas para ofrecer tras las comidas.

    You’re so cool! I do not think I’ve read through a single thing like this before.
    So nice to find someone with unique thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something
    that is required on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  8. Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a large amount
    of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I
    do write in my journal every day. I’d like to
    start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind
    of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  9. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

  10. It is perfect time to make some plans for the long run and it’s time to be happy.
    I’ve learn this post and if I could I want to recommend
    you few interesting issues or suggestions. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles
    regarding this article. I wish to read even more things approximately it!

    No love for the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer on here? I’m surprised. It may not be very deep, but then neither is Uncharted; it’s just a heck of a lot of fast-paced, manic fun. Aside from a certain galaxy far, far away it’s the only game that’s kept me playing online multiplayer for more than ten minutes. This electronic game involves splitting up into two teams and trying to get your teammates to guess the word on the screen by describing it in any way possible. Keep guessing new words until the buzzer goes off—if your team is still guessing, then the other team scores a point. This upgraded version has over 5,000 words and phrases so you won’t get bored any time soon! The game includes an adventure mode outside the main campaign that allows players to roam through every available region in the game to collect loot. On consoles, Diablo III is playable with friends both online and offline, whereas the PC version is online only (a sore spot with many PC gamers). Some other lists to check out: Beyond gameplay, Bulletstorm offers you plenty of opportunities to carry out a stunning elimination campaign to take on evil forces. What’s more, it has also got 30 competitive score challenge or 12 co-operative multiplayer maps to keep you pumped up for more.
