Oh my gosh, bunnies!!! Your comments, tweets, snapchats, etc have been SO inspiring and motivating for me! I can’t get over how amazing you guys are and how beautifully you all write! I want to compile your comments into one giant Motivational Monday blogpost for anyone who needs some positive affirmations. Seriously, read through the comments and look how amazing my readers are. You will feel so empowered! I cannot thank you bunnies enough for all of your support. I feel so inspired, loved, and unbelievable strong! I ALWAYS need you guys in my life! I’m so lucky!
Since so many of you loved my Single Serving Muffin, I wanted to do another single serving sweet treat for you! I haven’t made a Mug Cake on the blog for a while, but they are so easy and fun to make!
Today’s mug cake is a combination of chocolate and peanut butter with a little coconut oil in the mix, which gives it a little note of Germain Chocolate Cake!
This mug cake can easily be made gluten-free with an easy swap from whole wheat flour to oat, quinoa, or chickpea flour!
Traditional mug cakes are usually flipped over onto a plate like a mini cake! This one is kind of messy with the Peanut Butter, so I started eating it straight out of the mug but then wanted to get a photo and show you the fancy shmancy way of plating it! After a couple of bites I flipped it over onto the plate so you could see how it makes a mini cake once it’s out of the mug!
Make sure to coat your mug generously with nonstick cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray from Trader Joe’s) if you want it to come out of the mug nicely!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake
3 Tbsp whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp water
1/2 Tbsp peanut butter
1. Mix dry ingredients – flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and chocolate chips together in a small bowl. Mix everything together until just combined. DO NOT overmix.
2. Add wet ingredients – melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and water and stir until batter is well combined.
3. Spray a microwave safe mug generously with nonstick cooking spray and pour batter into the mug.
4. Add peanut butter on top of the batter.
5. Microwave mug cake for 60 seconds. Enjoy!
