A snickerdoodle cookie mug cake is the sweet dessert satisfaction without the baking mess. Simple ingredients and a microwave are all you need!


  • 4 tbsp white wheat flour or oat flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp organic white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

Sugar Cinnamon Coating

  • 1 tsp organic white sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon


  1. In a mug, combine dry ingredients and stir well to combine.
  2. Add nut/seed butter and milk and stir to create a smooth batter.
  3. Keep sides of mug clean by scraping batter off sides as needed.
  4. Combine sugar and cinnamon for topping and sprinkle as much over top as desired.
  5. Place mug in microwave for 1 minute stopping half way through to check on the cake.
  6. Cook for an additional 15 seconds and your cake should be fully cooked.
  7. Remove from microwave and allow to cool before taking a bite.


  • You can bake this in the oven. Place batter in an oven safe dish and place in the oven at 350F and bake for 8-10 minutes or until batter is completely cooked.
  • Sub cashew butter with almond butter, tahini or sunflower seed butter.
  • If using almond butter, I recommend using Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter.
  • If you don’t have cream of tartar, sub out for equal amount of baking powder.
