Matcha Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Toni Mitchell | September 6, 2023

As someone with a crazy sweet tooth, cake is one of my guilty pleasures. I recently hit 9 years as a vegan, June 8th, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with cake. Wanted to try something new, but with healthier ingredients. So, I decided… why not add some Matcha green tea to the celebration!  It’s mellow earthy taste and beautiful deep green color was the perfect add on. Matcha has always held a special place in my pantry. It’s rich in antioxidants and has so many health benefits. To make things even better I decided to sprinkle in some dark chocolate chips to help sweeten things up. 

This Matcha Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is a quick and easy microwavable dessert that’s made ready in less than 5 minutes. This single serve plant- based treat prevents me from over indulging, yet satisfies my sweet tooth. The great thing about this Matcha Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is it’s sugar-free, gluten-free, high in protein and 100% vegan! 

I enjoyed every bit of the Matcha green tea flavors and sweet pieces of chocolate in this delicious vegan treat.
