Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

  1. Whisk whole wheat flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a mug. Mix in applesauce, 1 tablespoon water, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Add more water if needed to reach a cake batter consistency. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 minutes and 30 seconds. Add 30 seconds if top doesn't appear set.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®) for the sugar if preferred.
  • Feel free to sub any mix-ins you like - frozen or fresh fruit chunks, various types of chocolate chips, a dollop of nut butter, anything. You can also add in other types of flavor extracts - coconut, orange, banana, etc.
