Filled with healthy fats from the nut butter and coconut, fibre from the banana and energy-boosting properties from the cacao, there really is no excuse to not eat this - unless you're allergic to the aforementioned ingredients of course; in which case I'm very sorry for you :( 

If you lack baking skills (like me), are vegan (or paleo, carb-conscious, vegetarian, flexitarian, lactose-intolerant, gluten-free or a sweet-tooth), love gooey, warm chocolate puddings, and are addicted to the instant gratification life, this one minute chocolate coconut mug cake recipe is for you.
