Chocolate Chip Mug Cake: A cake that serves 1! No leftovers to pick at day after day!You are home alone.  It is late. You have a craving for something sweet and only cake will satisfy your craving…. What to do?  If you make a cake you will eat not just one piece but a sliver here and there until it is gone.  Then you will feel guilty and kick yourself for over indulging… But you really want a piece of cake…

Mug cakes are a wonderful option! They take minutes to make and serve just one unless you want to share it!  Instead of days of indulging on cake you eat just one serving and it is gone! One of my favorites is Chocolate Chip Mug Cake because icing is not needed, saving on additional calories.   Now don’t mistake me, this mug cake has everything we have come to love in a sweet treat including butter and sugar.  So it is not to be eaten daily…even if you want to.  (I did use a mix of gluten free and oat flour, organic sugars and grass fed butter to try and keep it on the “clean” side.)

This mug takes only 7-8 minutes from beginning to end and uses just one dish, a mug!  So clean up is quick too.

At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
