5 from 1 review


The current cake in a mug craze is great for keeping portion control in check. This recipe puts a vegan and gluten-free healthy twist on traditional mug cake. It is light and fluffy and oh-so moist.


  • 3 tablespoon gluten-free flour (or substitute oat flour)
  • 2 tablespoon cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons melted vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon raw almond butter (or sunflower seed butter for nut-free version)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon non-dairy mini chocolate chips
  • 1 large microwave safe coffee mug or glass jar


  1. Whisk all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Or, to make clean up even easier you can make it right in the mug or jar you plan to consume it in.
  2. Whisk in wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. If using a mixing bowl, pour into your favorite coffee mug or glass jar.
  4. Microwave the mug or glass jar on high for 1.5 minutes and enjoy served with vegan vanilla frosting or vanilla non-dairy ice cream.
