You can try this, it work for me.

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$listBlock = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct');
$addToCartUrl =  $listBlock->getAddToCartUrl($product);

<form data-role="tocart-form" action="<?php echo $addToCartUrl; ?>" method="post"> 
    <?php echo $block->getBlockHtml('formkey')?>
    <div class="btn">
        <button type="submit" title="Add to Cart" class="action tocart primary">
            <span>Add to Cart</span>
  • That work really for simple product that hasn't got a configurable the mini-cart display nicely everything product details but when adding a variation in the mini-cart does not display the details but price everything else is missing I've also set 'selected_configurable_option' and super_attribute but still the same do you know of how to fix this thanks!

Adding upon this answer, if you wanted to do this through a non-object manager way you can do it with the following.

Add the list block to your constructor

 * ...
 * @param \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct $listBlock
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct $listBlock
    $this->listBlock = $listBlock;

Then in whatever method you want add in the following.

public function execute()
    return $this->listBlock->getAddToCartUrl($product);
