    1. Dairy on paleo is definitely debatable and it is considered gray area but we follow the primal paleo and it is allowed after the first 30 days as long as it is whole milk and organic. I definitely understand that some people don’t use it. And yes, it could totally be replaced with almond milk or a milk of your choice!

  1. Will try this soon, I don’t think a girl can have too many mug cake recipes! 🙂 Also: love that you included microwave instructions alongside the oven ones. Thank you!
