Paleo Gingerbread Mug Cake - grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and healthy!

A reader requested a recipe for a gingerbread mug cake not too long ago and I thought it was such a marvelous idea that I had to jump all over it.

Why didn’t I think of this, myself?

Gingerbread in any form is a treat from the heavens, and I’m wildly obsessed with it as soon as the fall hits and I begin craving all the warm spices.

Just have a look at my Low-Carb Gingerbread Loaf, Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes, Paleo Gingerbread Muffins, and Chocolate-Dipped Molasses Cookies.

I can understand why gingerbread can be polarizing. Molasses is one of those ingredient you either adore or abhor, so if you’re on team adore, you’re in for a real treat!

Mug cakes couldn’t be any easier to make and they’re brilliant for those of us who love a sweet treat but don’t want to put forth the effort into making a whole dessert OR are trying to control our portion size.

This warmly-spiced gingerbread mug cake is absolute perfection in the way of flavor, texture, and satisfaction.

Scoop a mini scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for a real good time!
