Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake

So I’m back again with yet another chocolate treat!! Told you, when the kids are together its rather difficult to keep them away from sweet indulgences. They both decided that they are old enough to handle mug cakes  and not bother me..After many overflowing cakes and dirty microwave disasters, I decided to deal with their obsessive craving and made Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake for them!

After three attempts, I finally got it right….a really moist, soft, gooey chocolate cake. The kids loved it and as long as it was delicious , didn’t “mind” the wholesome ingredients! 🙂 Apart from taste, the ease of making it on their own was they were looking for. And so they got their share of late night, movie time treat and I got a  clean microwave and kids eating a healthy dessert! Win Win!!

This recipe is really a breeze to make. Made with regular pantry items, it comes together in five minutes ! If you don’t have buckwheat flour, you can easily use whole-wheat or all-purpose flour too. I made it with both with equally good results. Same with coconut milk. If you don’t have it handy, go ahead use regular milk. Any vegetable oil will do, though I just prefer coconut oil in my baking now.

Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp Buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder Levelled teaspoon
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda, scant
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp Natural cane sugar Please feel free to increase the quantity if you'd like your cake to be sweeter.
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp Peanut butter, heaped Unsweetened, unsalted
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup Light coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Dairy free chocolate or Dark chocolate (70%) chips Optional
Instructions
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and cocoa powder in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork to break up all lumps.
  2. Add peanut butter, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir well with a fork. Make sure there are no lumps. You should get a thick, cake batter.
  3. Pour in a lightly greased mug, place a plate underneath ( to catch any overflow). Sprinkle some chocolate chips if using. Set the plate in your microwave and cook for 2 mins. You may have to cook for another 30 secs, depending on your microwave.
  4. Let the cake cool down for a few minutes and then serve it warm, with or without icecream!
Recipe Notes

You may want to put extra chocolate chips in the batter. That works well too.

How is this classified as healthy? What’s healthy about cane sugar? THis recipe is high in sugar and carbohydrates and doesn’t even have an egg, a source of protein and brain and hearty-healthy nutrients like vitamin A, E, K2 (if from pastured chickens) and choline…among others…

This is not a sound recipe. The proportions for consistency are correct but the sugar is very less, it tastes like bland sponge. Also, if you don’t like the taste of coconut oil in food, it should be replaced with something else.

Hi Tasha! I haven’t tried your recipe! But I have tried several mug cakes before and this recipe definitely sounds healthier. I will be trying this soon and leave you a feedback :).

Hello Natasha,

Tried the Mug cake recipe today and family loved it. Am allergic to egg so always look for eggless cake recipes. This worked very well. Thanks
