GOOD MORNING. Seriously. When you have one of these guilt-free chocolately-goodness mug cakes for for breakfast, it’s a good morning.
Before my Whole30, I literally ate mug oatmeal almost every single day for breakfast. It was that good. My mug oatmeal contained: 1 banana, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1/2 cup Quaker’s Oats-Quick 1-min oats. However, since oatmeal is not Whole30 or paleo compliant, and “dessert-like treats” are not Whole30, I nixed that real quick.
Since I’m off Whole30 and onto a (mostly…. trying to!) paleo lifestyle, I wanted to find a similar breakfast that was quick, easy, healthy, delicious, and filling again. I read a lot of mug cake recipes that contained way too many ingredients (that added up a lot of calories!) until I found The Wannabe Chef’s Four Ingredient Mug Cake. Yesterday, I made it as the recipe listed, including some agave-nectar for sweetening. Today, I nixed the added sweetener and just used 1 banana, 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s raw and crunchy almond butter, 1 egg, and 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa… and it was still great!
Four ingredients. One mug. Four minutes. I think I’ll be eating this for the next year.
