These gooey, melt-in-the-middle, chocolate lava mug cakes are not only the perfect treat for two, but they're free from gluten, dairy, nuts, bananas and grains too.


  • Coconut oil (45g, weighed before melting)
  • Organic dark chocolate (60g, cut into chunks)
  • Eggs
  • Egg yolk
  • Coconut sugar/xyitol (25g)
  • Salt (1 pinch)
  • Flaxseed flour (3 tbsp)


Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 8 and grease 2 ramekin dishes.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in a microwavable bowl and leave to cool slightly.
Add the yolk and whisk. Add the 2 eggs and whisk again.
Add the sugar and salt and stir well. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to stir until you have a smooth mixture.
Pour the mixture evenly between into the ramekin dishes. Pop in the oven and cook for 12 minutes. Remove and leave to stand for 1 minute before digging in!
