5 Minute Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate PB Mugcake!

A mugcake treat that’s vegan, gluten free AND delish?! I thought there’s no way but I was proved so wrong!

I came across @basicswithbails on Instagram and I saw she had a recipe for 5 Minute Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Mugcake. Now I’m not much for chocolate (salty chips are my thing!) but the fact that you could make it quickly and in a mug had me intrigued. And since I’d never made a mugcake before, I decided to give it a try…


You really won’t be disappointed. And because it’s just a small amount, it’s enough to satisfy and then it’s done.

I followed her recipe (see my notes in the ingredients) and took step by step photos of how I did mine.


5 Minute Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate PB Mugcake

by Bailey Campbell @ basicswithbails



  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder (I used Rodelle Organics from Costco)
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter (I had the Kraft one on hand but you can use the natural kind too)
  • 1 Tbsp vegan chocolate protein powder (I used the Organika collagen since that’s what I had)
  • 1/2 banana (approx. 3 Tbsp)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1-1/2Tbsp water (I added about 3 Tbsp because I liked it more moist)
  • a bunch of chocolate chips (I added about 1/4 cup but add more if you like it more chocolatey)

Sprinkle chocolate chips and blend one more time so you get

chips throughout the mixture.

Microwave for about 90 seconds.

I put mine in for another 30 seconds to melt the chocolate chips a bit more.

Add some ice cream on top for an extra yummy treat.

You can even add nuts or peppermint chocolate chips for a holiday version.


Doesn’t think look good? I’d honestly never had such a tasty gluten free treat that was so moist.
