    • Lightly grease oven-proof mugs with coconut oil or palm oil. Fill large casserole dish ⅓ to ½ full of water. Place dish in oven. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • Into large bowl, place dry ingredients: tiger nut flour, carob powder, tapioca flour, coconut flour, gelatin, baking soda and sea salt.

    • Scoop batter equally between mugs. Place mugs into hot water bath in casserole dish (in the oven).
