  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoons oat flour (or almond flour for a gluten-free option)

  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • A pinch of salt

  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 egg (or a flax egg for a vegan option)

  • 1-2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (optional)


Step 1: Mix Dry Ingredients

  1. In a microwave-safe mug, combine the unsweetened cocoa powder, oat flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Stir these dry ingredients together until well mixed.

Step 2: Add Wet Ingredients

  1. Add the honey or maple syrup, unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, and the egg (or flax egg) to the mug. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Step 3: Microwave

  1. Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for about 1 minute and 30 seconds to 2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and set in the center. Cooking times may vary depending on your microwave's wattage, so keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking.

Step 4: Enjoy

  1. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave (it will be hot!), and let it cool for a minute or two.

  2. If desired, sprinkle dark chocolate chips on top of the cake while it's still warm; they will melt slightly.

  3. Grab a spoon and dig into your delectable, healthier chocolate mug cake!
