Ingredients & Directions


  • 1 tbsp
    oil (any oil of choice)
  • 3 tbsps
  • 2 1⁄2 tbsps
    granulated sugar (cane sugar, coconut sugar, or monk fruit will work)
  • 2 tbsps
    unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp
    runny natural peanut butter
  • 3 tbsps
    all purpose flour or gluten free flour mix
  • 1⁄4 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1⁄8 tsps
    sea salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 1-2
    LILY'S Dark Chocolate Style Peanut Butter Cups, chopped into smaller pieces


Equipment Needed 
mug mug
 whisk whisk
 microwave microwave
 oven oven

In a mug, add the oil, milk, sugar/sweetener, cocoa powder and peanut butter.


Whisk together for about 15 seconds.


Add in the flour, baking powder, sea salt, and vanilla extract.


Stir to combine for about 30 more seconds to ensure its all incorporated, ensuring you get the bottoms too.


Sprinkle on your LILY'S Dark Chocolate Style Peanut Butter Cups pieces. Feel free to stir some of them into the batter too, and be sure to leave some on top too.


Place in your microwave for 65 seconds. It's okay if its slightly undercooked because it will continue to cook while it cools. It's better for it to be slightly undercooked than over cooked. Remove and let cool for about 3 to 5 minutes.


If making in your oven, preheat oven to 350F/180C and bake in about 3-5 inch ramekin (ensure its oven safe) for 25 minutes.


Remove and allow to cool for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
