WATCH: How to Make a Healthy Pumpkin Mug Cake
This moist and delicious Coconut Flour Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake can be made in less than 5 minutes and it is gluten free and paleo friendly.
I’ve been making this delicious paleo pumpkin mug cake many many times since I first came up with the recipe last year. In fact, we love it so much that I just had to include it in my Coconut Flour eBook. Although this vanilla mug cake has become really popular around here as well.
However, now that it is fall and I painstakingly made my own pumpkin puree (because at first I couldn’t find it here in Mexico) this quick and healthy pumpkin mug cake has become our dessert go-to. Even Olivia really is into it and regularly requests ‘punkeen cake’.
So the last time I made our favorite coconut flour pumpkin cake in a mug, I shot a short little video to prove to you just how quick and easy it really is to make.

The only little change I made consists of switching 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to make this part of truly paleo pumpkin dessert recipes. The rest of the post remains unchanged below.
Konrad, Olivia and I are going on a week-long vacation to Siem Reap in Cambodia. This town is the gateway to exploring the stunning temple ruins of Angkor Wat.
We’ve been in Thailand for almost 3 months now. We are required to leave the country for a little bit now. Among travellers this is often called a visa run. For us it is an adventure and a vacation in one.
Cambodia is one of the few countries in Southeast Asia that Konrad and I haven’t been to yet. So we are excited to discover a new to us country and culture.
Since beginning our most recent adventure of location independence in July, we’ve been working hard and a lot. So Konrad and I decided to make our Cambodia trip into a vacation to take some much needed time out.
Running a blog gives me the freedom of working from anywhere with an internet connection. But it also gives me the freedom to schedule work out for the future.
I wish I could tell you that I worked ahead to be able to share new recipes with you even while I am on vacation. In a perfect world, that is what I would have done.
Instead, I have been struggling to stay afloat during the last week as Konrad and I both are fighting a nasty cough. Luckily, so far Olivia has been spared.
And for the blog, while I am gone, I will post some of the most popular recipes from my collaboration with eBay, that I haven’t shared on Leelalicious yet.
Today’s Coconut Flour Pumpkin Cake in a mug is the first in this post series. I’ve been obsessed with mug cakes this summer. Can you believe that I never tried them before? I was always secretly scoffing when I saw mug cake recipes on Pinterest.
I just couldn’t believe that the microwave could produce a good-tasting cake. Well, I was wrong. And maybe I am trying to atone with all the mug cake recipes I am sharing now.
This gluten free pumpkin mug cake made with coconut flour perfect for the season. It is moist and rich and the warm pumpkin spices elicit only the most pleasant fall emotions.
