This healthy mug cake recipe is soft, warm, and oozing with melty chocolate. It’s flourless, ready in under 2 minutes, and comes in a perfect single serving size for your after dinner sweet tooth.
Imagine a world where you can have a warm, chocolatey, gooey dessert in less than two minutes and from the microwave (NO bowls or pots or pans to clean!). Now take it a step further – what if this dessert was healthy. What if it was gluten free, dairy free, even vegan!?
Now you think I’m just messing with you right? But I am not and this “world” is the here and now thanks to this single serving chocolate mug cake!
I am obsessed with this recipe. It is so perfect for after dinner when I don’t want to devour a whole cake by myself 😛 If you want another fun single serving recipe but want a fruity take on it, be sure to check out my single serve spiced peach crisp! Or if you are allllll about the chocolate definitely don’t miss out on my triple chocolate avocado zucchini bread or my chocolate buttercream sweet potato frosting that you can eat straight from the spoon. Or if you are all about this baking with quinoa idea, try my chocolate chip quinoa cookies!
Let’s Make a Healthy Mug Cake!
I know quinoa flakes might be a new ingredient for you. But I promise they are worth going out and getting! (You can get the ones I used here). They add so much great protein to this recipe and help us avoid using ANY flour. I haven’t tried this recipe with any swap for this but you could give almond or gluten free all purpose flour a try. If you do please let me know how it turns out!
A couple swaps – If you want this recipe to be nut free, just switch out the cashew milk for oat milk. And if you don’t eat apple sauce you can swap that out for some coconut oil (I’d use 1/4 cup).
Also – in full transparency, I split this between two of my mini ramekins so it was actually a two serving cake for me. BUT it can be easily made in one larger mug and eaten in a single sitting without any guilt because the ingredients are so good and it is not too much for one sitting! I just didn’t have a big enough mug 🙂
I hope you and your sweet tooth enjoy this one as much as I do!Print
