Chocolate Mug Cake Just For You!

I have come across this concept before, only the recipe wasn't as healthy as this, so I had to share!  I cannot lay claim to fame however, this recipe was created by vegan chef, Lindsay S. Nixon, author of The Happy Herbivore Cookbook!

This "healthy" cake goes from flour to your mouth in under 5 minutes!

  • 2-3 tbsp vegan chocolate chips

    1. In a small bowl, whisk Flour, Sugar, Cocoa, Baking Powder & Cinnamon together, set aside. For a really sweet cake, add more sugar. 
    2. In another small bowl, whisk 1/4 cup applesauce, nondairy milk, and a drop or two of vanilla extract together. 
    3. Pour wet into dry, then add chips, stirring to combine.
