½ TEASPOON VANILLA
¼ CUP PLUS 1 TABLESPOON UNSWEETENED APPLE SAUCE
1 TABLESPOON COCONUT PALM SUGAR

I used a soup cup to make this cake as it’s wider and I figured the cake would bake more evenly. I was right btw!
Gently melt butter in the mug in the microwave. You can use a vegan sub for this if you want. Add peanut butter and stir until blended. Add applesauce and blend well.
Add sugar. Blend well.
Add flour, cocoa, salt, BP and stir well. Then add Choc chips and stir in.
Microwaves vary so check your cake after one minute. Mine is about 1000 watts. I did one minute, dug a hole in the middle to check it and allow the cooking to be more even. Then another 30 seconds, checked and then another 15 seconds. Perfect! This was by far THE best cake in a mug I’ve ever made! SO yummy!
Tout fine! Enjoy!
