Clean Eating Mug Cakes |

Pinterest is full of amazing looking dessert recipes, and some evenings, I find myself clicking through to sites to look at recipes.  I have been especially fond of mug cakes, but have found it a bit frustrating to see many of them made with ingredients I don’t keep in my house, such as vegetable oil.  I figured it wouldn’t be that hard to create some clean eating mug cakes on my own, and share some seriously delicious recipes for my clean eating friends! 

I ended up trying a few different recipes, and these three clean eating mug cakes were my favorite.  I had the toughest food critic I know, my 6 year old daughter, try out each of these clean eating mug cakes.  Each got 2 giant thumbs up!  I also loved that the portion sizes on these clean eating mug cakes are perfect for a sweet treat, without the temptation of eating an entire sheet cake!

  2. Sounds delicious! We don’t eat a whole lot of sweets, but every once in a while we crave something sweet. These would be great to fill that craving.
