Want a fluffy and light single-serve dessert fast and crave melty chocolate peanut butter? This is your answer! If you use my flour combo, it’s also gluten-free!

Servings: 1


  • 3 tablespoons Cassava flour

  • 1 tbsp oat flour

    (You could just use 4 total tbsp of regular flour in lieu of the 3+1 ratio of oat and cassava, but I think this combo makes it super light and fluffy)

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk (or use regular milk)

  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (or regular sugar)

  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

  • tiny pinch of salt

  • 2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Dairy Free Mini Chocolate Chips)

  • 1 mini chocolate peanut butter cup (I use Justin’s Organic Peanut Butter Cups)


  1. Mix the flours, vanilla, baking powder, milk, sugar, peanut butter, salt and chocolate chips in a microwave safe mug.

  2. After mixing the ingredients well, top the mixture with one mini chocolate peanut butter cup. After placing it in the center, push it down into the mixture slightly.

  3. Microwave for approximately 70 seconds.

Eat and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Make this dairy-free by omitting the chocolate peanut butter cup!

  • Don’t like milk chocolate? Try it with Justin’s dark chocolate or white chocolate peanut butter cups and omit the chocolate chips.
