I love mug cakes because they are quick and easy to make. Plus, they are the perfect size. Rather than taking the time and dirtying a bunch of dishes making a full size cake that you’re tempted to eat way too much of, you can have a perfectly portioned cake in under ten minutes. There are hundreds of mug cake recipes out there but today, I would like to introduce you to a special one, our CoBionic Paleo chocolate mug cake. What makes this cake special isn’t that it’s grain free or that it’s packs a serious chocolate punch thanks to unsweetened cacao powder. What makes it special is the addition of CoBionic Indulgence, a collagen supplement with a delicious chocolate flavor. The collagen really takes this cake over the top from good to great!
Why CoBionic Indulgence Is the Perfect Addition to this Mug Cake
CoBionic Indulgence is a collagen supplement which is free from dairy, gluten, and sugar. It is Paleo and 100 percent natural, made from grass-fed collagen.
Oral collagen supplements have been linked with a number of health benefits including reduced joint pain, higher skin elasticity, and improvements in nail health [1, 2, 3].
CoBionic Indulgence has a satisfying chocolate flavor, which makes it a perfect pairing for this chocolate mug cake. This chocolate flavor comes from natural alkalized cocoa powder and it is smooth and decadent. The cocoa powder even comes with its own health benefits! It is rich in antioxidants and chocolate flavor .
How to Make Your Own Powdered Erythritol
Erythritol is a popular sugar substitute. It is a sugar alcohol, identifiable by its distinctive cooling effect which is often described as similar to mint.
You can buy powdered erythritol but in a pinch you can also make your own using a coffee grinder or a high-powered blender, like a vitamix. For instructions, check out this post, which uses a coffee/spice grinder.
