Chocolate Mug Cake

Yields1 ServingPrep Time3 minsCook Time2 minsTotal Time5 mins

 1 tbsp flour
 1 tbsp cocoa powder
 ¼ tsp baking powder
 pinch salt
 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)
 1 tbsp Greek yogurt
 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup
 2 tsp milk of choice (I used almond milk)
 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
 2 tbsp chocolate chips

Stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl or mug.

Add peanut butter, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk. Mix well until evenly combined - it should be smooth and thicken a bit.

Stir in chocolate chips.


Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Check and microwave for about 15 seconds more, until the top is set and it's just a little gooey in the center.

For a s'mores cake, add 2-3 marshmallows during the last 15 seconds of cooking time. Top with crushed graham crackers.
