This Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake comes together in just 6 minutes for a tasty and fun treat! 


  • 1/4 cup One Degree Organic Sprouted Spelt Flour (can sub regular flour) 
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/8th tsp salt 
  • 1/4 cup+1 tbsp almond milk (can sub any plant-based milk) 
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips 


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together in a mug. 
  2. Mix the almond milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract together and pour the wet ingredients into the mug. 
  3. Use a spoon or small whisk to mix together, until it is combined and smooth. Mix in or top with chocolate chips.
  4. Microwave for 65-95 seconds. Time may change slightly depending on your microwave. 


Make sure to measure the ingredients correctly! To measure flour correctly make sure it is completely level at the top of your measuring cup.

Use a good quality cocoa powder for the best results. This will really give the cake more flavour.

Depending on the power of your microwave, you may need to cook the cake longer or shorter. Start by cooking it for less time, and then cook more if needed.

If the cake comes out chewy, it’s likely because it’s overcooked. I prefer the cake on the softer side.
