Sweet tooth? Look no further.
If you have never experienced the simple joy of eating a tiny cake out of a mug…you’re missing out on something magical.
Mug cakes are so easy, its stupid. It’s why I love them so much–not only are they super tasty and (mostly) low carb– you can enjoy a single serving cake in less than 5 minutes!!
With the sun season basically here, a lot of people are conscious about what they are eating. It is so easy to east a single serving when your whole dessert fits into a mug! No need to cut out a piece only to find yourself coming back for seconds…or thirds.

Pumpkin Pie isn’t just for Thanksgiving, not when you can mix up some tasty ingredients and pop this mini pie into the microwave! This recipe is awesome and it even gives alternatives in case you are also following the paleo diet. It may take a few more steps to make this mug but it is totally worth the time. Here’s a lil tip for you– I like to mix up a big batch of the mug “batter” that way I can scoop some out into a mug, microwave, eat… then repeat of course 😛

There is nothing pain about this quick and easy vanilla mug cake.

It not only looks cute, but it’s also freaking amazing. This is a must try out of the 10 recipes here so don’t just scroll on by and ignore this cake!

Lemon poppyseed is a flavor I can always go for! This keto friendly mug cake weighs in at only 3.7 carbs! How awesome is that for a dessert? This does call for some specific ingredients, but if you are already following the keto diet, they should be things you already have! This recipe even comes with an instruction video.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chunk Mug Cake
Where are my chocolate lovers at? I can never ever get enough chocolate. I have to stop buying it because I will eat all of it the same day I buy it. This chocolate chunk (even better than plain chocolate) cake mug is perfect! I get one serving of chocolate cake, which is just the right amount!

I am obsessed with snickerdoodle cookies, and it’s no different with this snickerdoodle mug cake. Total time from the ingredients to your belly is only 7 minutes! This will be a favorite of yours or anyone you make it for. Cake mugs can be great for parties or guests because you can make so many different flavors so easily. Make extra snickerdoodle ones because you won’t be left with extras 🙂
Low Carb Mug Cookie Cake
You don’t have to be following keto to be conscious of your carb intake. Desserts can be loaded with unhealthy carbs that you may be unaware of. I never want to fully restrict myself to the point where I don’t allow myself to have a freaking Hershey kiss…balance is key. But, I do like to be mindful of the things I consume. Lower carbs (not no carbs) is a goal for me right now so I am a big big fan of the low carb, sugar-free, mug cookie for one. A whole dessert to myself without having to share!

Total time to make this mug is 4 minutes! Saving time while still treating yo self 🙂
