  • Add the coconut oil to a 12 oz (355 ml) microwave-safe mug; microwave 10 seconds, or until the oil is melted. Rotate the mug around to coat the entire inside with the oil.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl, then whisk in the honey, almond milk, and vanilla.
  • Stir in the almond meal, cocoa powder, flaxseed meal, salt, baking soda, and espresso powder until smooth.
  • Pour off any extra coconut oil from the mug into the batter and stir it in.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared mug and microwave on high until cooked, about 2 minutes in an 800W microwave. (If your microwave has a higher wattage than that, start with 1 minute and add 10 second intervals until it’s done.)
  • Cool slightly and then serve immediately (it’s best eaten when still hot).
