Recipe

A lot of my friends have started doing Crossfit lately. I think it is something I want to try but honestly it intimidates me, I am not quite sure I could even get close to doing what is required. As a result of doing Crossfit, many of them have also adopted Paleo diets and have been asking me for recipes they can use, especially for sweets. After doing some research, I found this simple and delicious recipe from the Wannabe Chef for these healthy and simple mug cakes. Luckily I had all of the ingredients on hand so I whipped up a quick mug cake and it was delicious. I actually can’t wait to have one again. Note: Picture is also courtesy of The Wannabe Chef, I couldn’t get mine as pretty .

Directions

  1. Mash the banana using a fork until it becomes smooth.
  2. Stir in the peanut butter, egg white, cocoa powder, and sweetener is you use it to form an even batter.
  3. Add any mix ins into the batter. Add to a mug or ramekin, making sure it isn’t more than 2/3 full since it will expand. I always spray the container with cooking spray to make sure it doesn’t stick.
  4. Microwave for 2-1/2 minutes until set. Enjoy!
