Favorite Low Calorie Mug Cake Recipes with Weight Watchers Points
1) Weight Watchers Chocolate Mocha Mug Cake
The perfect mini chocolate cake for chocolate lovers who enjoy the addition of the flavor of coffee and richness it imparts. Chocolate chips add to its rich chocolate flavor while Greek yogurt in the mug cake batter keeps this easy chocolate mug cake nice and moistI love it topped with a few fresh blueberries or raspberries!
2) WW Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake
I was excited to spot a recipe for a microwave mug chocolate cake made from scratch, without artificial sweeteners that was also gluten-free!!! Instead of all purpose flour this healthy chocolate mug cake recipe calls for powdered peanut butter (affiliate link) and unsweetened cocoa powder as its dry ingredients.
Enjoy this delicious sweet treat just as it is. Or personalize your mug cake by stirring in a few chocolate chips or adding toppings such as powdered sugar, sprinkles, whipped cream and/or sliced fruit. A little scoop of ice cream alongside is how my husband likes to enjoy it.
I plan on experimenting with almond flour in place of the peanut flour the next time I need a quick chocolate fix.
