Vegan Hojicha Lava Cake (Gluten Free & Oil Free) | Delia.v Life

Omg we are SO HAPPY to share this Healthy Vegan Single Serving Hojicha Lava Cake with you! We are suckers for lava cakes. But it wasn't really in our favour that many lava cake recipes especially matcha/ hojicha ones, require white chocolate and obscene amounts of egg yolks. Meh. We decided to do some experiments and wala we have a recipe that is non-vegans approved! SHHHH...its oil free too!

So, what makes our Hojicha Lava Cake recipe so special? It is:

- Oil free

- Gluten Free

- Single-serving

- Refined sugar free

- Made with pantry ingredients

Yes, no need to hunt for vegan white chocolate or some special egg replacer. You would most probably have all the ingredients you need! This recipe is healthy enough for breakfast if you ask me... Oats, almonds, non-dairy milk, tad of coconut sugar and of course, hojicha! For all you people living alone or have a sudden craving for hojicha lava cake, this recipe is made for you. You should totally double or triple the hojicha filling recipe and freeze the extra cubes like we do, so that you can have a fantastic hojicha lava cake ASAP when cravings strikes. Oh, and we absolutely love pairing it with our Sweet Potato Cereal Ice Cream for some added luxury!
