Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, melted coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons dairy free chocolate chips

Instructions

  • 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 undercooked 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. 

Notes

  1. I think the mug cake tastes best with white flour, but you can use whole wheat flour, or a gluten free flour mix. I wouldn't suggest using all almond or coconut flour. 
  2. You can use natural cocoa powder or dutch processed. Either work fine for this recipe.
  3. Feel free to substitute coconut sugar for the regular sugar, or lower the sugar amount if you want a less sweet dessert.
  4. For the oil, you can use canola oil, melted coconut oil, vegan butter or any other oil you prefer. You could also substitute applesauce for oil free, but it will not be quite as rich tasting.
