Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly coat a 10-ounce microwaveable mug with cooking spray. Whisk flour, cocoa and baking powder together in a small bowl. Whisk in almond milk, maple syrup and applesauce. Pour the mixture into the prepared mug. Top with dark chocolate chips, if desired.

  • Microwave on High until the cake is the desired texture, 45 to 60 seconds. (With less cooking time, it will be more like a lava cake; cooking longer will yield a firmer texture.) Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
