This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Mug Cake is the perfect treat if you’re single and enjoying a date night in with your significant other, or if you’re looking for a guilt-free dessert that is portion controlled! Fluffy in texture, packed with chocolate chips and perfect any time of the year.
Let’s be honest, if you make a whole loaf or cake, you’re going to have more than one slice. Am I right? So why not enjoy the delicious things in life without worrying about devouring the whole damn thing in one night, either going to bed or waking up with a bit of regret.
If this mug cake is too large for you, simply share it or cut the recipe in half. It is on the larger side of mug cakes, so it can easily be shared with a significant other if you don’t have an appetite for sweets like me! Feel free to use the chocolate chips of your choice, maybe add some nuts or swap the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips or even peanut butter chips?? Ehh, now we’re talking!
I mean… how can you say no to that spoonful of ooey gooey chocolate chips?? Part of me had a hard time waiting to get a shot before devouring what was on the spoon!
And it only got better once the ‘Cream Cheese’ topping was added! If you haven’t tried substituting plain greek yogurt for the traditional cream cheese, then you need to! It is the perfect healthier alternative with only 3 ingredients!

Fold in 1 tbsp. chocolate chips, reserving remaining for garnishment.
Spray the inside of a mug with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the batter.
