  3. Add the coconut sugar, egg and vanilla to the bowl. Whisk until combined. 
  4. Add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk until combined. 
  5. Fold in most of the chocolate chips, saving a few to sprinkle on the top of each mug. 
  6. Divide the batter into two mugs. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top. 
  7. Microwave separately, each for 40 seconds. 
  8. Enjoy as is or top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
