30 Days of Oatmeal: Microwave Chocolate Oatmeal Bake

Ever want something fudgy and sweet, but need something healthy that won't spike your blood sugar? Don't want to turn on the oven, but have a microwave? This is the mug cake, or special breakfast for you!

To make this recipe extra decadent, top with a square of chocolate or some semisweet chocolate chips. I chose a square of Ghirardelli's Mango Sunset.
Ready for the recipe?


(Adapted from Kim's Cravings)
1/3 c instant oatmeal
1 T dark cocoa powder
1 T ground flax seed
1/3 c applesauce
1/4 c water

Optional toppings:

Chocolate square or chocolate chips


1. Grease the inside of a small cup. (I used coconut oil. You can omit this step, but it will make the oatmeal bake hard to remove.)
2. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in the cup.
3. Microwave 3-5 minutes on high.*
4. Top with optional chocolate and a splash of milk.

*Note, this bake will remain fudgy due to the vegan ingredients.
