  • 1/3 cup banana
  • 1/3 cup cooked sweet potato flesh can be made fresh or use canned
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • stevia to taste (optional)
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped vegan chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans


  1. In a large mug OR a small mixing bowl, mash the banana, sweet potato, applesauce, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

  2. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until well combined. Add stevia if you like it sweeter than it is naturally (which is pretty sweet!).

  3. Gently fold in the chopped chocolate and pecans.

  4. This can be mixed up in the mug this will be baked in or mixed in a small bowl and then placed in a mug. The second way makes a neater-looking mug cake but also an extra dish to wash!

  5. If desired, add a couple of chocolate pieces and pecans on the to before cooking.

  6. Microwave for about 2 minutes. Check the mug cake and, if needed, microwave in 30-second increments until the center is firm-ish. Enjoy!
