1. Throw all the ingredients in a mug.  I recommend putting in the liquid ones in first so that all the coconut flour and such doesn’t become a big blob of hardness when mixing.
2. Mix it up! I used a fork, but you can use whatever.  If you want to use a hand mixer, I would recommend NOT mixing it in the mug or else it might make a huge mess.

3. Pop it in the microwave and heat it for 2 minutes.
4. Let it sit for a bit so that it can  (1) cool down and not burn your tongue off and (2) for it to be less moist.
5.  Now you can enjoy your awesome fall pumpkin cake that you just made in less than 5 mins!

Took a bite! (or 3)


  1. Tried the pumpkin pie in a cup. Yumola! Next time I will use 1tbsp honey (2 was just a little too sweet for me) and I added 1/4 tsp cloves and topped everything with a dollop of vanilla Iice cream. The cup is super hot so the advice of waiting for things to cool down is paramount. I think I’ll add some pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts for more texture. Great recipe!!!! Thanks for posting.

  2. Coconut flour has been making me SO happy lately!!!!! And this recipe only makes me happier, knowing that the flour will make it all fluffy and amazing 🙂
    Coconut flour doesn’t even need sweetener to taste good!

  3. I just have to thank you for making recipes like this one that don’t have any almond products in them! I am trying to be as strict paleo as I can, but it’s extremely difficult since I’m very allergic to almonds.
    Keep’em comin’!!
