WW Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake – (Gluten Free from Scratch without Cake Mix) 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 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.
