Ingredients

Flourless chocolate cake

  • 1 large banana
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (peanut butter will work too)
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds (slightly toasted)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips (semi-sweetened)

Avocado chocolate mousse

  • 1 avocado (Hash type)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp honey/agave nectar/maple syrup (organic preferred)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Caramelized carrots

  • 1/4 cup carrot sticks (thick juliennes and carrot ends)
  • few mint leaves (a handful)
  • cinnamon (a dash)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (cannot avoid this)

Instructions

Flourless Microwave Chocolate Cake

  • Blend all the ingredients except the flax seeds and chocolate chips to a smooth batter. Pour in greased ramekins or mugs.
  • Sprinkle the flax seeds and chocolate chips on the top.
  • Cook in microwave in the high setting for around 1 minute and then again cook it for 30 seconds.
  • Insert a knife or toothpick to see if it comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

  • Add all the ingredients in a high-speed blender.
  • Blend well until smooth and creamy. If it is hard to blend without any liquid, I suggest adding one to two tablespoon of almond milk.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for half to one hour.

Caramel carrots

  • In a small pan, heat 1 tbsp of sugar.
  • Once the sugar starts to melt and caramelize, add the small carrot sticks.Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon.
  • Allow the carrots to cool completely. Stick a mint leaf to each caramelized carrot. If the mint doesn’t stick well, use a drop of honey to stick it to the carrot.

Assembling

  • Place two to three table spoon of mousse in a small clear cup.
  • Crumble the microwave chocolate mug cake. Add the crumbled cake to form the top layer in the cup half filled with mousse.
  • Arrange the carrots sparingly on the top crumbled cake layer.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can make banana chocolate mousse too. Just use a ripe banana instead of avocado.
  • Adding some melted semi-sweet chocolate to the mousse will make it more rich and chocolatey.
  • While cooking the cake in microwave, watch closely to avoid spilling while cooking.
  • The microwave setting may vary. It may take few more seconds in your microwave to cook the cake.
  • I prefer adding the chocolate chips to the cake. Avoid it if you want to.
