  • 1 tablespoon oil of choice (we used avocado)
  • 5 tablespoons milk of choice (we used oat)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips (use dairy-free if vegan)
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
  • chocolate chips, whipped cream, fresh raspberries, crushed freeze-dried raspberries for topping. optional


  • Add all of the ingredients except for the jam and a couple of the chocolate chips into a small bowl and mix well to combine.
  • Divide the batter in half. Transfer about ⅔ of each amount of batter to a microwave-friendly mug. Add the raspberry jam to the center and then cover with the rest of the batter and the remaining chocolate chips.


  • Microwave on high for 85 seconds.
  • Allow to cool for about 5 minutes (caution: the jam will be very hot) before topping with desired toppings.
  • Serve and enjoy.


  • If you would prefer to make this in the air fryer then replace the mugs with ramekins that will fit into the basket.
  • Follow the rest of the instructions and cook in the air fryer for 10 minutes at 360F (180C).


I use coconut sugar, but feel free to replace it with a granulated sweetener of choice.
Make this higher in protein by adding a tablespoon of your favorite protein powder. You will need to add about 1 tablespoon more milk as well.
Store covered, on the benchtop, for up to one day.
To reheat, simply pop into the microwave for about 20-30 seconds.
