Microwave Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 mug
Vegan chocolate mug cake is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings. This vegan dessert is an amalgamation of pudding and cake, creating a gooey, decadent treat that satisfies even the most discerning chocolate lovers. It's so easy to make; you can whip it up in no time using just a few simple ingredients and your trusty microwave. This recipe is heart healthy, gluten free, and delivers 8 grams of protein per serving.


  • tbsp oat flour
  • 1 tbsp cacao, unsweetened
  • tbsp coconut sugar
  • tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract, pure
  • tbsp apple sauce, unsweetened
  • tbsp soy milk, unsweetened
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil, cold pressed, organic


  • Whisk together oat flour, cacao powder, coconut sugar, chia seeds and baking powder (dry ingredients) in a small mug.
  • Combine apple sauce, soy milk, coconut oil and vanilla (wet ingredients) in a medium ramekin.
  • Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ones by whisking them together until fully combined. Just be sure not to overmix!
  • Send the mug cake batter to cook in the microwave for about 2 minutes. The time will vary depending on your microwave's wattage.
  • When the cake is done, safely remove it from the microwave and let it cool for a couple of minutes before digging in! Add your favourite toppings.


  • I like to use a whisk for combining the dry ingredients because it helps break up any lumps in the oat flour and helps the vegan mug cake rise more evenly.
  • You can top the vegan chocolate mug cake with vegan ice cream, whipped cream, berries or even a dollop of peanut butter.
  • Substitute the cacao powder for vegan chocolate chips or cocoa nibs to add texture.
  • Besides coconut oil, vegan butter or vegan margarine are great alternatives.
