Mix the dry ingredients. In your mug combine the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and salt.

Add wet ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the olive oil, milk and vanilla. Mix well, being sure to scrape along the bottom edges of the mug so that there aren’t any dry bits of batter left.

Add the chocolate chips. Pour in the chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
