This moist Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is the perfect balance of sweet and savory with peanut butter and chocolate.
Here is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mug Cake that I gave you a preview of in my Inspirational Quote of the Week. I made this for my birthday on October 11.
It was inspired by my Chocolate Coffee Mug Cake, but I have to say, out of the two, this one is my favorite. I think adding the peanut butter somehow made the cake fluffier, or maybe it was because I didn't have cacao powder and instant coffee in it.
Anyway, both were good, but the fact that I made this for my birthday, I am glad that I liked this one better.
In the photo above, the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom of the vegan peanut butter mug cake, probably because I mixed the chips into the mix.
The second time that I made it, I sprinkled the chips on top. So they stayed put.
I have fallen in love with vegan mug desserts. The main reason is that I am not a big cake lover, or dessert person for that matter. By making a small mug cake, I get to have cake every once in awhile.
This way I do not have a whole lot of extra cake leftover, so I love it! (Even though these are small, I still had some leftover because I only eat one third to one half at a time.)
