Double Chocolate Mug Cake

(vegan, can be gluten free)

This recipe is basically a warm hug… in a mug! Behold your new favourite companion to bundle in a cozy blanket and watch Netflix with. Made with pantry staple in under 5 minutes, with very minimal cleanup. It’s fluffy, vegan, and can be made gluten free!


  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup flour (all-purpose, oat, buckwheat, 1:1 GF, whole wheat)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2/3 – 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup plant milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips


  1. In a mug, mix together the dry (cocoa, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder).
  2. Then, mix in the wet (oil, milk, vanilla, chocolate chips).
  3. Top with more chocolate chips if you want, and cook in microwave for around 1 minute. This time depends on your microwave. I would recommend cooking in 20 second intervals after the minute until the cake is cooked through.
  4. Let cool, and top with nuts, coconut, cereal, frosting, whipped cream, homemade nut butter, or whatever you desire!
