Chocolate Sunflower Cup Mug Cake


Is there anything better than cake? Um…YEAH! It’s a Chocolate Sunflower Cup Mug Cake ready in 90 seconds!

The base of this recipe is made with good-for-you stuff like almond flour, mashed banana, Probiotic Vanilla Protein by Nuzest USA, and ground flaxseed. Then, to treat myself, I stuffed it with a sun butter cup (I used Lakanto). ‘Cause balance.

And, YOU GUYS! This mug cake might be my best yet. That’s right, I said it. It was perfectly moist, chocolatey, and totally delicious.

Run to your kitchen right now, toss all the ingredients except the sun butter cup in a small bowl, and mix. Then, add it to a greased ramekin or mug, top it with the sun butter cup, and pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds. Finally, let it sit for a minute, and dive in!
