Paleo Breakfast Cake

Need to get out of a breakfast rut? Try cake for breakfast! It's delicious and healthy for you.

Breakfast is the meal I care about the most. Why? Because my kids almost always eat a good breakfast… lunch is iffy…. and dinner is a challenge. So, I am always trying to come up with new and creative ways to make breakfast fun, delicious, and most of all healthy!

I’ve seen a million recipes out there for “mug cakes” and finally decided that I would give them a go as a healthy paleo breakfast cake. Took some experimentation (and I still haven’t mastered them without the use of a microwave!), but this recipe was a big hit! It seriously could not be any easier either.

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


1. Put all ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until smooth.

2. Pour into greased ramekins.

3. Nuke in the microwave for 2 minutes per ramekin, or 8-10 minutes for the whole batch at once*.

4. Invert on a plate and top with your favorite toppings. We love homemade whipped cream, berry sauce, maple syrup, or sliced peaches

5. You can store them for up to three days in a sealed bag in the fridge to heat up for another morning too!


*Note: we haven't used our microwave in YEARS, but I tried making this recipe in the oven and it took forever! So, just this one time we decided to give the microwave a go. Once I find a quicker method of doing it in the oven, I will be sure to update this post.

  1. I sooooo wish I would have found this last night when I was craving a cake. Wonder could you put some cocoa in here to make it a a chocolate cake?

  2. Just made these with my 7 year old. She was able to do everything except pull them out of the microwave!!! We topped with maple syrup and fresh raspberries, yummy!!! Thanks for a great recipe.

  3. I just tried this recipe and steamed them in a water bath on the stove top and they came out wonderfully. Even better than from the microwave.

    1. That is a GREAT idea Lu, I am going to try that too! I really don’t like to use the microwave. Thanks for letting me know that it worked.

  4. We don’t have a microwave..sigh, just for this recipe. If the oven takes a long time, I wonder if it can be done in my instant pot?
