Before becoming vegan, I used to eat a lot of those protein packed mugcakes for snacks. But I thought, how could I still make a satisfying mugcake without the whey protein and egg? Actually a lot simpler than you think! I don’t even remember how I came up with this delicious treat but it sure did come out perfectly!
You don’t need eggs to make a fluffy mugcake. All you need is a moist substance like mashed banana, ground flaxseed, pumpkin… in this case I used applesauce! Made this mugcake really soft and added a little sweetness too ❤
- 1/2 cup (50g) oat flour + 2 Tbsp. oats
- 3 oz. unsweetened applesauce
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- enough almond milk to make a batter (about 3 oz.)
- *optional: sweetener of choice (I used english toffee liquid stevia)
First, mix together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Then stir in the wet and mix until well combined. Microwave about one minute until cooked through. Microwave times will vary depending on the size of the bowl. Sometimes, I have to cook a little longer but I actually don’t mind a little mushiness in the middle (preference). Make sure you don’t cook for too long or else it could dry out and you’ll just be sad. I love to top with some kind of nut butter and fruit! You could also add in dates, ground flaxseed, or other mix-ins to the batter and it would still come out nice.
Delicious little snack to have before bed or for a small breakfast! Like eating a pancake in a bowl 😉
If you give it a try, lemme know what you think!
