Growing up as the only true health enthusiast in my family, I got pretty used to cooking all my meals for myself. I would meal prep on the weekends so I had all my food prepared for breakfast, lunch, snacks, afternoon sports, etc. When I came home, the one thing that I wanted more than anything was some HEALTHY DESSERT (and one that I could whip up FAST)!
And then…drumroll please…the mug cake was born! The easiest way for me to satisfy my sweet tooth without wasting any time at all! Seriously less than 5 minutes to prepare + make and 100% worth every bite. I swear that mug is absolutely magical (and even better when you’re exhausted and hungry). Easiest healthy dessert!
So naturally, I made sure that my mug cake was delicious, yet still completely filled with the good stuff and made out of whole food ingredients only. This mug is gluten free, dairy free (always), refined sugar free, and paleo–aka JUST how I like it 😉 Recipe below!
3 tbsp almond flour
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
1-2 tbsp chocolate chips
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients, then transfer to a mug (or microwave-safe bowl).
Microwave for 2 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Add more chocolate chips and a drizzle of almond milk.
