Paleo Butter Pecan Mug Cake

Today was a rainy day. It is spring time and the temperature is warm and the flowers are starting to bloom, so I really can't complain about the water falling from the sky on occasion. That being said stormy days always bring on cravings of comfort foods. In particular the feeling of holding a warm ceramic cup filled with something enriched in fragrant spices. Like hot chocolate, spiced coconut milk, or mug cake...

1 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp almond flour
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp melted butter*
1/2 tsp allspice
pinch of salt
2-3 Tbsp pecan pieces


Mix together flours, egg, vanilla, honey, melted butter, allspice, and salt in a microwaveable mug.
Blend well.
Fold in nuts.
Microwave for 2 minutes.
Enjoy while warm.

*for dairy-free substitute coconut oil
