You know those moments when you’re craving something sweet, but you don’t want to make a whole bunch? Just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, and not have to worry about what to do with the leftovers?

Well, have we got a recipe for you!

Today we’re sharing how to make mug cake – a super quick, easy, and perfect portion of a dessert favorite! And the best part is it only requires three ingredients and approximately one minute in the microwave!

Ingredients (serves 1)
¼ cup + 1 tbsp chocolate hazelnut butter spread (or vegan Nutella of your choice)
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
Egg replacement (I like to use ¼ cup mashed banana, or ¼ cup applesauce)

Instructions
In a microwaveable mug, add the chocolate hazelnut butter spread and egg replacement and mix together.  Add in the flour and mix again until the batter is a smooth consistency. Microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute (this may vary depending on your microwave). Once it’s done, feel free to switch the recipe up and add favorite toppings – sprinkles, peanut butter, or even some coconut ice cream!
