Chocolate Collagen Mug Cake Recipe
Chocolate season (aka: Valentine’s Day) is just around the corner, and while most of us can agree we love a couple squares of pure dark chocolate a few times a week … we can also agree that following a healthy diet during any type of holiday can seem “slightly” complicated.
But, take it from us chocolate lovers (who also happen to be hardcore paleo): it doesn’t have to be.
For example, this mug cake? It’s filled to the brim with rich cacao, melted chocolate chips, and enough sweetness to have you craving another bite. Yet, it’s also dairy free, gluten free, low carb, and takes under 10 minutes to make.
Not to mention, we’ve infused this particular version with our Grass Fed Bone Broth Protein, which contains abundant amounts of collagen that can help keep your skin supple and glowing (and who doesn’t want to glow on Valentine’s Day?).
Treat you and your honey, or even yourself any day of the week, to this simple cake in a mug.
