1 Minute Nutrimeal Mug Cake

Ever since I learned how to eat low glycemic I've successfully broken up with refined sugar. But that doesn't mean that I don't love desserts!

I've been playing with this recipe ever since Brie Wohlers and I tested it out, our hilarious trial run is on YouTube

Since then, I've enjoyed this for breakfast, in the evenings when I crave a treat and whenever the kids asked for it!

Enter- the Nutrimeal mug cake! 💃

What is the Nutrimeal mug cake?
A single serve cake that uses a combination of Nutrimeal, eggs (or vegan substitute), milk and other extras to create a light, fluffy and gooey mug cake.

Unlike traditional mug cakes, the Nutrimeal mug cakes are super low carb, packed with protein and made without flour or sugar.


Ingredients

  • 1 scoop Nutrimeal
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (or really any flour)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice*
  • 1 large egg * See notes for vegan option
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp chocolate chips of choice (optional)

Instructions

Microwave option

  1. Grease a microwave safe mug with cooking spray and add the Nutrimeal, baking powder, coconut flour, sweetener of choice and mix well.
  2. Add the egg and mix into the dry mixture. Add the milk of choice and vanilla extract- If the batter is too crumbly, continue adding milk of choice until a very thick batter is formed.
  3. (Optional) Top with chocolate chips and microwave for 60 seconds, or until just cooked in the centre.

Oven option
Follow as above, but bake in the oven for 8-15 minutes, depending on consistency desired- Mug cake is cooked once a toothpick comes out 'just' clean from the center.

Notes
* For the vegan option, you won't need any flax eggs/egg substitute- Simply omit and slowly add milk of choice until a thick batter is formed. Microwave/bake until 'just' cooked in the center.
