Winter weather calls for cocoa in more than one way! Our Vegan Hot Cocoa Mug Cake is a single serving of decadence for when you want a fast, chocolatey treat on a cold day. Don’t forget the vegan marshmallows!


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose GF flour
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Cloud Hot Cocoa Mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar (you can add 1 tbsp. more if you like it a bit sweeter)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. nut milk
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon mini vegan chocolate chips
  • Vegan mini marshmallows for decoration


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  2. Whisk in the nut milk and coconut oil until all ingredients are combined and batter has no clumps.
  3. Pour batter into a large microwave-safe mug. You want enough head space in  your mug for the cake to rise without pouring over.
  4. Add mini chocolate chips into the middle of the batter.
  5. Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the mug on top (this is to catch any batter if your mug cake overflows).
  6. Microwave mug cake for 70 seconds on high (please use this as a guide as all microwaves are different)
  7. Carefully remove from microwave and top with mini marshmallows!
