  • Summary

    This Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake is INCREDIBLE! Easy and ultra moist with a molten, gooey center. Made with peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and dark chocolate, this lighter version of chocolate cake in a mug cooks in just 90 seconds in the microwave.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour (or GF 1:1 All Purpose Baking Blend)
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (a good pinch)
    • 3 tablespoons milk, any kind you like (I used unsweetened almond milk)
    • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt (use nondairy yogurt to make dairy free; I haven’t tried mashed banana or unsweetened applesauce but think this could work too)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    • 1 tablespoon peanut butter, almond butter, or other nut butter of choice
    • 2 tablespoons dark or semisweet chocolate chips (for an extra fudgy cake, add 1 additional tablespoon)
    • Optional toppings for serving: vanilla frozen yogurt, nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt, whipped cream, extra chocolate chips, a dollop of extra nut butter
