Chocolate flax mug cake is the perfect way to keep your sweet tooth satisfied while keeping your portions in check.

Ingredients For Chocolate Flax Mug Cake

  • All-purpose flour: All-purpose flour can be substituted for whole wheat flour if thats what you have.
  • Flax egg: Flax egg is a great alternative to regular eggs in baking recipes. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use chia seeds instead!
  • 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.
  • Vanilla extract: for flavor.
  • Melted butter or oil: You can use any kind of oil or melted vegan butter. I like to use avocado 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 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 soda
  • Almond milk

How To Prepare

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!
