This microwave mug cake recipe is a 10/10. It is chocolate heaven in a cup. Prepared in minutes. It is vegan, refined sugar-free, and easily made gluten-free to be enjoyed by all. This recipe will satisfy those chocolate cravings in 90 seconds and with only one mug needed to clean. It really is too good to be true.
You can also substitute the apple sauce for plain Icelandic or Greek yogurt (or non-dairy yogurt) to increase the protein content. Have fun with additional toppings such as yogurt, fresh fruit, cocoa nibs, or walnut pieces. I promise that you or your loved ones will be making this recipe over and over.
I am super excited for you to try.
