For a guilt-free quick fix of those sweet cravings try these healthy desserts in a mug. Single servings of cake, brownies and cookies that are gluten free, paleo or low carb.
I have something of an incurable sweet tooth. I go through phases, but more often than not I'd choose sweet over salty/savory snacks. My husband is the opposite. Although he enjoys occasional sweet treats, he doesn't have them often.
As a result a rarely make entire cakes anymore. There is just too much of a risk that I would eat most of it myself. After years of hesitation, I finally made my first mug cake earlier this year. Single servings of desserts that are ready in minutes! I don't know what took me so long to jump on board.
If you are still hesitant about desserts in a mug or are already all on board, I put together a list of delicious mug desserts that you just HAVE to give a try! Because all of them are actually healthy!
All of these mug recipes are either gluten free, grain free, low carb and/or refined sugar free. I made a note which of those applies for each recipe. There are 3 categories - cakes, brownies and cookies.
Get your microwaves + mugs out and get ready for dessert in minutes! To get to the recipes, simply click through on the titles or images.
