Okay, this is a great pamper yourself, comfort food that is full of protein and chocolate.  A perfect combo. 

 

1 oz. dark chocolate

2 T. honey

1 T. coconut oil

1 T. almond butter

1 egg

 

Put the chocolate, honey, and coconut oil in a coffee mug.  Microwave 30 seconds.

Stir in almond butter and the mix in egg well.  (It will actually begin to thicken as you are mixing in the egg.)  Microwave 60 seconds.

It's ready (and very hot) to eat.

 

It is good by itself but I started out putting some walnuts and coconut on top.  Now I've actually mixed them in the mix after I mix in the egg.  It gets really thick while mixing with this added but after cooking, it is wonderful.  It would be great with a pudding on top too but I haven't got there yet.

Okay,  posting the above recipe was too much for me.  My feet carried me to the kitchen as soon as I finished.

I made the Chocolate Mug Cake as above (5 original ingredients).

Then, I made a topping using most of the same ingredients:

 

1 – 2 T. dark cocoa powder

2 T. honey

1 T. coconut oil

1 T. almond butter

Coconut (enough for your taste…I probably used close to 2 T.)

Walnuts (I used about 1 1/2 T.)

 

I microwaved the first three ingredients 30 seconds as in the cake recipe above.  Then I stirred in the almond butter.  Then I added the coconut and walnuts and poured it all over the top of the Mug Cake.  It seeped down the sides and the dessert is so good and gooey. 

 

Since I eat healthy veggies and meats all day and since it is so hard to prepare meals at home because no one else will eat healthy and I am tired of trying to please everyone else, this might be a really good dinner that I could live with.  Wink

Hmmm, it could be an identical recipe.  That's one thing I've found looking through paleo recipes…that you can find the same one on several different sites.  Regardless of where it came from…it is sooooooo delicious.

I've been sick the past few days and I am supposed to be on bed rest (yeah, right…in whose world is that possible) so anything I can do to pamper myself is at the top of my lists.  Smile  And I know the microwave isn't at the top of the list as a way to cook, but some times, you gotta do what you gotta do.  And I needed something that was quick and kept me on my feet for as little time as possible.  This was it!

You know how their are times that you drive somewhere and you are lost in thought and then all the sudden you are at your destination and you don't even remember driving there???  (Well, it happens to me all the time.)  I think my feet are taking over my body right now…yep, they are making me get off the recliner.  I'm heading to the kitchen.  Slow down, the rest of me can't get there as fast.  Whoa!!!

Wink Have a great evening all!

It definitely is not the same recipe your recipe sounds so much better! 🙂

I know what you mean about bed rest it doesn't happen in this busy world we live in. I know you aren't supposed to use microwaves to cook in but some times you  just gotta do what ya gotta do!  We also have to be realistic, I use my microwave, I try not to leave things in plastic containers, but I don't think I could survive without my micro. especially for thawing and cooking frozen veggies. I hope you find some time to rest and relax, we all need a little pampering once in awhile, sounds like you need it now.
