Chocolate Vegan Mug Cake


I see a pattern with the recipes I share... they are mostly sweet treats 🤭🤗
It is because I still love to enjoy a sweet treat, I just choose to find healthier versions.... that are still delicious, I promise 😉
And this recipe in particular won't disappoint! 😋

We actually went to the Zoo today
[now that it has reopened] and we belatedly celebrated my husband's and 5yo's birthdays. I whipped up this mug cake to take with us as a birthday cake and it was gobbled down with delight 🥰

  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour (I use GF flour)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (I use cacao powder)
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar (I use coconut sugar)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp canola oil, melted coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp dairy free chocolate chips
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking powder to a mug. Stir or whisk to combine.
  • Pour in the oil, non-dairy milk and vanilla into the mug with the dry ingredients and stir well with a spoon. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
  • Cook in the microwave for 40 seconds. It will likely be a little under cooked in the middle at this point, which is my preference, but if you want it cooked more, microwave it another 10-20 seconds. 
  • Serve immediately.
