This Healthy Gingerbread Mug Cake is gluten free, vegan, and contains no butter/oil or refined sugar! Made in 2 minutes, all you need is a mug, a spoon, a microwave, and a few ingredients!
Yesterday evening, we had just finished dinner and I was sat at my computer, posting my Chicken Caesar Salad recipe. As I clicked ‘Publish’ and was about to go to the kitchen and grab some dessert (probably a dollop of Healthy Chocolate Ice cream), my sister confronted me at the doorway, stopping me in my tracks.
With puppy eyes, raised eyebrows and a pleading grin, she murmured “Kaaaattiiiee….”
“Yes?” I waited for her response as the puppy eyes widened.
“Please could you put another mug cake on your blog so I can make one?”
I sighed, giving in to the indisputable power of the puppy eyes, “Oh alright. What sort of mug cake would you like?”
She paused for a moment.
“Hmmm…. a gingerbread mug cake?”
She wanted a gingerbread mug cake. In Summer.😕
That’s younger sisters for you!
Nevertheless, I went into the kitchen and made a gingerbread mug cake:
You can decide whether or not it’s actually acceptable to eat a gingerbread dessert in the middle of summer, but regardless of that, this mug cake is certainly healthy! It is gluten free, refined-sugar free, eggless, vegan, and made without butter/oil.
I have used buckwheat flour instead of conventional flour, honey to replace refined sugar, and Greek yoghurt instead of butter/oil. It’s even eggless, which saves you the bother of cracking an egg!
Although ginger and cinnamon are typical Christmas flavours, it was quite nice to mix it up a bit and say hello to those old spices right in the middle of August. This healthy gingerbread mug cake can be enjoyed any time of the year!😉
