Amarula, Banana, Coconut Mug Cake with Chocolate Sauce

I am a huge fan of Amarula and it complements this mug cake beautifully. This is a moist banana bread-cake with hints of coconut. It goes very well with a bit of healthy chocolate sauce and this peanut butter, banana, protein ice cream.

5 minutes to make. Serves 1.

Mug Cake Ingredients:

  • 1/2 medium banana, mashed

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter, or other nut butter

  • 3 tbsp Amarula or Baileys

  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

  • 1 tsp desiccated coconut

  • 1 tsp honey


  • 1 tbsp Amarula or Baileys

  • 1 tsp desiccated coconut

Single Serving Chocolate Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup or other sweetener


  1. Place all the mug cake ingredients in a cup and mix well.

  2. Microwave for 2-3 minutes depending on how moist or dry you like your cake.

  3. Place the chocolate sauce ingredients in a second mug and microwave for 1 minute.

  4. (Optional) Stir the healthy chocolate sauce well and pour over the cake.

  5. Pour the Amarula or Baileys garnish over the cake and top with 1 tsp of coconut.

  6. (Optional) Add this peanut butter, banana, protein ice cream.

  7. Enjoy!
