This AIP Brownie Mug Cake turned out amazing! It uses simple ingredients no cassava or tapioca flour (which I don’t digest well). Desserts on the autoimmune protocol and be tricky. Egg-free baking is hard and then you pile on all the other limitations. Impossible it seems. That’s why I do what I do.

AIP Brownie In A Mug
Not just a regular brownie, an AIP brownie mug cake! That means no egg, no dairy, no chocolate. But yes, it’s delicious. Come to think of it, this AIP Mug Cake is also vegan! I use pumpkin puree as the base but mashed banana works too. I also opted for tiger nut flour which I think has a lovely flavor.
AIP Mug Cake Ingredients
- The base of this recipe is Canned Pumpkin Puree. It’s an affordable ingredient that adds body and sweetness.
- We use Sustainably sourced Red Palm Oil or Coconut Oil as a cooking fat.
- My flour of choice for this is Organic Tiger Nut Flour but read the FAQs below for alternatives.
- I used Organic Coconut Sugar to sweetened and the magical Missy J’s Carob Powder to give it that chocolate flavor. All of these AIP staples come together for a killer AIP Mug Cake!
Step By Step Instructions
Start by whisking together the wet ingredients in your mug or ramekin.
Add in all of the dry ingredients and use your little whisk or a fork to whisk it all together until full combined.
It will be VERY thick! That’s what you want. Yum! Mix until smooth.
I suggest you use a spatula to clean up the ramekin or mug and smooth it out. It will make it prettier in the end.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes. This baby cooks a little longer than most mug cakes but it’s worth the wait.
This is what it will look like before and after you cook it. Then you can add flaky salt or a dollop of coconut whipped cream! Yum! Enjoy this delicious Egg Free AIP Brownie Mug Cake!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but start with 1 scant tbsp. Mix the mug cake batter. If it’s thin add in a little more. If it’s too thick add in a little water. Flour absorbencies vary from brand to brand. Use the step-by-step process shots to guide you in the texture.
I haven’t tested that yet. But I think it might make it gummy. Sweet potato flour will work better.
Absolutely, but carob is much sweeter than cacao. If using cacao add an extra tsp of sweetener.
A mashed banana works too!
I suppose so. Try a small, lightly greased ramekin, 375F for 15- 20 minutes.
Yes, just skip topping it with coconut cream.
Yes! I multiplied the recipe by 4 but upped the fat to 1/4 cup. Baked it in a greased loaf pan. Baked at 350F for 25 minutes. Topped it with a carob coconut cream frosting and wow! I will have to make it its own recipe post soon.
