Recipe Notes

Raspberry Chocolate Chip

  • 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons¬†chocolate chips (like the Enjoy Life brand)

Basic Blueberry

  • 1/2 cup blueberries

Cinnamon Apple

  • 1/2 cup apple, diced finely
  • 1/4 teaspoon¬†cinnamon

Chocolate Banana

  • 1/2 tablespoon¬†cocoa powder
  • 1/2 banana, diced

Making ahead for breakfast? Add ingredients to the jar and use a plastic lid to store overnight. Remove the plastic lid and follow recipe directions. These plastic lids also make your mug cakes wonderfully portable!

Use tongs to protect your hands when removing hot jars. I really like this pair.

If you want to skip the foil, this special size Corelle plate can also be used on top. Or try silicone mug covers.

Can’t use almond flour? Try giving wheat flour or a GF-flour blend a whirl. The ratios are the same for other mug cakes, so it should work. Let us know your experience!
