This Healthy Gingerbread Mug Cake is gluten free, vegan, paleo, 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, so there’s no guilt! 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 summer. Why not?! It doesn’t matter whether it’s Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, this healthy gingerbread mug cake can be enjoyed any time of the year!😉
