Who doesnt like chocolate cake?! I have always considered chocolate an essential food group. 🙂 As it turns out cacao is actually good for you! This whole chocolate mug cake is full of healthy ingredients and protein but hey don’t tell your family that. Just tell your kids they can have chocolate cake for lunch and see if they say no. 🙂 This will keep them full and happy until dinner time!
Like a lava cake in the middle, this WW friendly chocolate mug cake has only 3 points and over 12 grams of protein. So enjoy without guilt if you are working towards weight loss goals and even if you aren’t, this little cake is ready within 15 minutes. You can top it however you like, so if you are not on a weight loss program, go ahead and add more filling like peanut butter or jam in the middle and on top, this would be awesome with a bunch of whipped cream. 🙂 I used just a dollop of vanilla yogurt.
Enjoy the video instruction! I would love to hear how you fix up your mug cake!
