  • 1/4 cup packed almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar you could probably get away with 2 tablespoons without changing the texture too much
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon all natural almond butter or peanut butter be sure to use the just nuts variety
  • Vegan ice cream or vegan whipped “cream” for serving


  • Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, almond milk, and vanilla in a microwave-safe mug (should be able to hold at least 12 oz of liquid).
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Dollop nut butter in the center.
  • Cook in microwave 60-90 seconds* and add more time as needed. The middle will still be gooey, but the outsides should have a cake-like texture.
  • Cool slightly before serving with vegan ice cream or vegan whipped “cream”.
  • Take 5 seconds to rate this recipe below. We greatly appreciate it!


*75 seconds was perfect for me.
This is RICH, so nutritional information is for HALF the mug cake. Trevor and I like splitting this with ice cream!
