Healthy mug cakes! (gluten-free/clean eats)

May 1, 2014

You can eat clean and have your cake too with these healthy mug cake recipes! Yup, clean eats is keeping up with the mug cake trend and showing you that mug cakes aren’t always unhealthy and that cake doesn’t always need a long prep/bake time. The thing I like about mug cakes is that it’s an individual portion. Sometimes I find myself wandering into the kitchen and having bits and pieces of the treats I made every time I go in and then somehow before I know it, I end up eating 5 cookies instead of 1. So being able to make individual portions of sweet treats really help since now you don’t have an entire cake or batch of cookies lying around in your kitchen to “unconsciously” munch on. Anyway, here are recipes for a fruity cake, a chocolatey cake and a healthy cake so you can satisfy any of your cake cravings!
