Not nutritious, but certainly delicious, this individual mug cake is sure to please any chocolate craving. While being healthy and eating correctly is a way of life, occasionally a “cheat day” is in order. When that day rolls around, this recipe is sure to please — it takes about 5 minutes in total to make and if you’re going all out, adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream seals the deal on this sweet treat.
Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tbsp All Purpose Flour (If you have a gluten allergy, as I do, sub in GF flour)
2 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
3 tbsp Milk (Again coconut or almond milk would substitute well here)
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
2 tbsp Apple Sauce
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Chocolate Chips (If you’re a fan of mint, dropping in an Andes Mints in lieu of chocolate chips is borderline magical)
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly and microwave for 2 minutes. Top with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream and enjoy!
