Easy gluten free and dairy free pumpkin chocolate chip mug cake with a simple cream cheese glaze! 


  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (1 tbsp for more sweetness)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 12 tbsp dairy free chocolate chips*

For the cream cheese glaze:

  • 1 tbsp softened cream cheese (vegan or regular)
  • Splash of maple syrup, to taste
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Milk of choice, as needed to thin


  1. In a large mug, whisk together the pumpkin, egg, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Stir in the dry ingredients until a smooth batter forms, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Microwave for 2 minutes then allow to cool a couple minutes.
  4. While mug cake is cooling, mix together the cream cheese glaze ingredients. Spread over the top of the cake and enjoy! 


*If you skip the chocolate chips, you will likely need to increase the maple syrup to add more sweetness to the cake.
