Healthy Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Dessert in the middle of the week.

Because these frigid temperatures are just not fair.

It's like -30 outside and snowing. And those snow banks just keep getiing bigger.

*Big Sigh*

Okay time to take a deep breath and bake something. I would much rather talk about baking than the weather anyway.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like there can never be too many recipes that invole chocolate chips...and mug cakes. There are just so many variations. Like Katie's chocolate cake in a mug (that frosting just looks to die for). Mug cakes can either be cakey or have that sticky-fudgy texture that I personally love. 

After a few trials of my own, I landed on these almond-flecked, honey-kissed cakes.

They're fluffy and have that nice moist gooey-texture. Golden in colour, these little single serving mug cakes are reminiscent of chocolate chip cookies.

The cakes themselves are just barely sweetened but the dark chocolate adds a bit of healthy sweetness for good measure.

If you're looking for a healthy single-serving dessert, this is it.

Or if you're looking for a quick snack, this is it.

The nice thing about these is that they're gluten-free with a vegan option.

These cookies. Oh my gooodness!

I haven't stopped thinking about them since last Friday.

You might have seen me post about them on instagram last weekend.

They're a take on my Flourless Breakfast Cookies that I posted at the beginning of January. I can promise you that you'll never ever know that these are gluten-free. The texture is out of this world. Their soft doughiness is off-the-charts.

They're thick + chewy, full of flavour, and super soft thanks to a combination of oat flour (ground from gluten-free oats) and rolled oats. Oat flour is one of my favourite clean eating flours, which you'll notice I use in many of my baking recipes.

On my first bite, I though these soft-baked breakfast cookies were very similar to baked oatmeal. You can use any kind of nut or seed butter you like if peanut butter isn't your thing, but I found the peanut butter flavour wasn't overly strong. Almond butter and cashew butter would be pretty great to try too. Or if you're feeling adventurous, maybe even a mix of nut butters!

To make things exciting I added two mix-ins. Dark chocolate chunks and slivered almonds -a match made in heaven.

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Keywords: bake breakfast snack dessert gluten-free vegan vegetarian vegan option banana chocolate honey cinnamon cookie

Ingredients (8-10 large cookies)

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter, or other nut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey, or pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325˚F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand-mixer) and whisk together. Stir in the peanut butter, honey, applesauce, and mashed banana. Mix until all of the ingredients are well combined. Gently stir in chocolate and slivered almonds. The dough will be thick and wet.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough (apprx. 1/4 cup) and drop onto prepared baking sheet. Slightly flatten the tops for desired thickness. The cookies will not spread out in the oven.

Bake for 15-17 minutes until edges are just starting to brown. Remove from oven and cool on the baking sheets.

Notes

The cookies will stay fresh at room temperature for about 1 week. You can also freeze them in sealed containers/ or freezer bags for up to 3 months.
