This Healthy Apple Cinnamon Oat Mug Cake is the perfect comforting dessert for those chilly evenings. An apple pie just for you, this mug cake is gluten free, refined sugar-free, and vegan. Made without butter or oil, it contains health-benefiting ingredients such as apple, oats, Greek yoghurt and cinnamon. ALSO WITH OVEN OPTION.
At 6:00 am this morning, I was rudely awakened by the almighty crash of rain thundering onto the roof overhead. The wind howled and my room remained in gloomy darkness, due to the absence of the sleeping sun.
Reluctantly, I folded back my duvet and slowly got out of bed. There was a chill in the air, and no warmth welcomed me as I shivered my way downstairs.
Entering the kitchen, I resorted to the two most comforting things I could think of:
Hot chocolate and a mug cake.
Specifically, a healthy apple cinnamon oat mug cake. Warm cinnamon pairs perfectly with sweet apple and soft oats to form this beautiful little cake. It’s like an apple pie, all for you!
I was soon toasty warm after eating this, and the filling, protein-rich, fibrous ingredients left me sufficiently full until lunch!
Because of its soft & fluffy texture, you wouldn’t be able to tell that it contains NO butter or oil, NO flour or gluten and NO refined sugar. In fact, you don’t even have to crack an egg for this vegan mug cake!
What’s more, this healthy apple cinnamon oat mug cake is made in the microwave in under 2 minutes! There is also an oven option if you would rather bake it.
*I am aware that some people aren’t comfortable with using a microwave. Based on what I have researched, I am confident that microwave ovens are of no major threat to our health, as well as the fact that there are more micro-waves being emitted from mobile phones than from microwave ovens.
However, for the people who would rather use the oven, that’s totally fine as well! Just bake it for about 15 minutes at 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, Gas 4). Besides, nothing beats baked apple pudding!
Perfect for comforting you on those chilly Autumn and Winter evenings, this mug cake is definitely worth getting out of bed for.
