One minute Chocolate mug cake (vegan, oil free)

I’m always out of ingredients when a chocolate craving hits. It’s either almond milk or oil and now I’m out of both . Ha! How convenient ! But I managed to make a mug cake out of the stuff I had in my pantry today. Yay for me 😁

We went to trader Joe’s mainly to buy pasta and ended up spending 50$ over fruits and some veggies. Yikes! I gotta tone down my grocery bill. Yet, I don’t feel guilty for sneaking in a bag of chocolate chips among the items *evil grin*. I read in a couple of blogs that trader Joe’s chocolate chips are vegan. I gave out a noticeable gasp when I saw it for myself. I was making a batch of chocolate chips at home ever since we got cocoa butter . But I ended up eating all of them🀐. Not cool for my belly! 

I stopped buying almond milk from stores when I learned that most of the brands have only 2% almonds. I usually make almond milk ,but I ran out of almonds . Then came the walnuts to rescue ! Walnut milk was very creamy and delicious. I used it for my pancakes and smoothies too. 

I cooked the Mug cake in power 4 setting of my microwave for a minute. The result was a soft and moist mug cake which I drooled over just by looking at it. My not so chocolate loving hubby gave it a thumbs up πŸ™‚
