Chocolate Flax Mug Cake Recipe | Vegan Friendly

Chocolate flax mug cake is the perfect way to keep your sweet tooth satisfied while keeping your portions in check. This easy low-carb dessert recipe can be made in 2 minutes using a microwave or 30 minutes using an oven. You can even add toppings like chopped nuts, ice cream, or fruit preserves for extra flavor!

Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour: All-purpose flour is a blend of hard and soft wheat flour, which means it has a more balanced protein content than any other type of flour. All-purpose flour is used in many baked goods and can be substituted for whole wheat flour. It provides a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
  • Flax egg: Flax egg is a great alternative to regular eggs in baking recipes. Flaxseed meal is made by grinding flax seeds, which are high in omega-3 fatty acids. The flaxseed meal can be mixed with water and then allowed to sit for a few minutes before using it as an egg replacement. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use chia seeds instead! Flax eggs are not as strong as regular eggs; they won’t hold the cake together as well or give it the same structure, so you may need more than one flax egg to replace each regular egg. However, this is fine because flaxseeds are considered a superfood with many health benefits like reducing inflammation and increasing cognitive function!
  • Erythritol: Erythritol is a sugar alcohol, which means that it is not metabolized by the body like other types of carbohydrates. Because of this, erythritol does not raise blood glucose or cause your body to store extra fat. In fact, some studies have shown that erythritol may even help reduce weight gain and lower LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Mini chocolate chips: Chocolate chips are a great addition to this recipe. While you can use any kind of chocolate chip you like, I suggest using dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate has less sugar than milk or white chocolate and is, therefore, lower in carbs than the other types of chips. Plus it’s just plain delicious! You can also use semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips if you prefer them over dark. If you don’t have time to make your own mug cake tonight, try making one in advance and wrapping it tightly with plastic wrap before placing it in an airtight container—that way all that deliciousness will stay fresh until whenever your sweet tooth starts calling out for attention again!
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract is a great way to add flavor to dishes. Vanilla extract is usually made by steeping vanilla beans in alcohol, and it can be used in desserts or savory dishes for added sweetness and dimension.
  • Melted butter or oil: You can use any kind of oil or melted vegan butter. I like to use vegetable oil because it tastes great and has a high smoke point, but there are other options as well! You can choose whichever one you have on hand, though some might be better than others for this particular recipe. If you’re going to use melted butter instead of vegetable oil: make sure that the batter is warm enough to melt it all the way through before baking (if not, add more liquid). If using regular melted butter, then just whisk it together with your wet ingredients until smooth!
  • Baking powder: Baking powder is a mixture of baking soda and an acid. Baking soda is a base, and the acid component in baking powder is what gives it its leavening effect—that’s why you can use it to make cakes rise. It’s also used in biscuits, scones, pancakes, and muffins to create that fluffy texture you’re looking for.
  • Baking soda: Baking soda is a chemical leavening agent. It’s one of the most common ingredients in baking, and it helps cakes rise, brown, be fluffy, tender, moist, and flavorful. Without it your cakes will be dense and flat (and you’ll have a really bad day). Baking soda reacts with acidic ingredients like vinegar or lemon juice to create carbon dioxide bubbles that make your cake light and airy.
  • Almond milk: Almond milk is a great alternative to dairy milk. Almond milk is high in calcium, vitamins D and E, vitamin K and B12. It also has no cholesterol or saturated fat. If you are experiencing lactose intolerance or simply don’t like the taste of dairy milk, almond milk might be a good alternative for you. Almond milk can be made at home using raw almonds and water—just blend them together until they reach your desired consistency (you may need to strain it through cheesecloth if it gets too thick). You can also buy almond milk at most grocery stores now; however, make sure that there are no added sugars in the product before purchasing it! Store store-bought almond milk in the refrigerator after opening them up just like regular dairy milk would be stored—they should last up to two weeks after being opened once they’ve been refrigerated properly

Chocolate Flax Mugcake Recipe

Instructions

To create your mug cake, follow these steps:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, erythritol, baking powder & soda).
  • Add in the wet ingredients (flax egg, milk, oil, and vanilla extract) until smooth. Note that adding in all of these things at once will create an eggy mixture; if you’re not into that sort of thing then feel free to add them one by one until incorporated!
  • Pour batter into oven-safe greased mugs or ramekins (you can use muffin pans for this too!).
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until done in the center–test by inserting a knife into the center; if it comes out clean then you’re good to go! Remove from oven once finished cooking and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving hot as an afternoon snack with some fresh blueberries on top!
