5-Minute Vegan Chocolate Mugcake ♥
Quick to prepare, easy, delicious, healthy and chocolatey would be the words to describe this mugcake.
The cool thing about mugcakes is that as the word says, it is literally cake in a mug and it’s ready in a couple of minutes because it’s cooked in the microwave. Although it can also be cooked in the oven without issues, it just takes a little more time. Just always remember to use microwave-safe mugs or molds or if you use an oven, oven-safe.
Feel free to add your favorite toppings on your mugcake; for this vegan chocolate mugcake I added some homemade nutella and chopped almonds.
Can I skip the banana?
Banana gives the mugcake such a good consistency, but if you don’t like it very much, you can safely omit it. You don’t need to substitute it, just add the rest of the ingredients and follow the same process.
Can I substitute the peanut butter in this vegan chocolate mugcake?
You can definitely substitute it for some oil (coconut oil, canola oil, etc.) in the same ratio, but if you’re able to eat peanut butter, I 100% recommend using peanut butter. It adds a very nice flavor and also a decent amount of protein to this vegan chocolate mugcake.
If I wanted to make a mugcake without the chocolate flavor, what adjustments should I make?
Just substitute the cocoa poder for more oat flour, add a little vanilla extract, even a little bit of cinnamon powder, and that’s it.
If I decide to cook the batter in a conventional oven, how long does it take?
At a temperature of 355°F in a preheated oven, the cooking time would be 15-25 minutes. It is suggested to start checking the mugcake after 15 minutes using the toothpick technique (insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, the mugcake is ready).
