Dear reader,

Between working on my health and my business, it doesn't always leave time to tons of baking. My recent addition to my mug cake recipes is this decadent gluten free molten lava cake. 

If you're not a microwave fan, here is the traditional, baked version.

Gluten Free Molten Lava Mug Cake

I saw chef Ryan Scott make a molten lava cake in the microwave on The Today Show.  So, I played around with his recipe to make a gluten-free molten lava cake. It fits perfectly with my collection of gluten free microwaved mug cake recipes. So, I had to convert it to gluten free. Check it out! It's delicious! Can't do flour?

Healthy Gluten Free Microwave Muffin

From Carol Fenster's latest cookbook, 100 Best Quick Gluten-Free Recipes (2014), I present this amazingly easy gluten free microwave muffin recipe. It's teh perfect quick dessert for four, or portion down for one. This would be an excellent quick breakfast that you could even prepare most of the ingredients the night before. It is made without table sugar, just molasses. Quick, easy and healthy!

One of my Twitter followers recently asked me for a gluten-free coffee mug cake recipe. I had never heard of a such a thing! So, curiosity got the best of best of me, and I had to get right on it. After a little research, I discovered that most recipes are actually a coffee cake though you can make other cake recipes in a mug. I thought how great for those that are the only ones in their household that are gluten free to have their very own personal gluten free coffee cake, in minutes!

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin in a Mug Recipe

While I have a few gluten free cake mug recipes, I had not yet developed a muffin in a mug recipe yet. Wanting a bit healthier version of the cake mug recipe, I decided to add a bit of flax seed meal to the cake recipe and add some blueberries. To make a cake version, substitute the 1 tablespoon of flax seed meal for 1 tablespoon additional flour. This gluten free blueberry mug cake makes a fast snack/dessert!

Gluten Free Mug Cake: Strawberry Shortcake (Microwaved)

There are a few advantages to making individually portioned desserts. You can save money, consume less sugar, fat, and calories by avoiding subsequent servings, and they cook up quickly. I enjoy them because you can adjust the toppings and flavors to fit individual needs. Microwave mug cakes are perfect for college students. You may be able to think of additional advantages. If you do, please share them in a comment below. Meanwhile, enjoy!

Image: Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake

I'm under deadline on another project but wanted to squeeze in a recent recipe request for a healthier gluten-free mug cake. I chose chocolate this time, as I already have a recipe for a regular Gluten Free Coffee Mug Cake (actual coffee cake). I love coffee mug cake, as they are so easy to make! To make it healthier by using xylitol which is sugar-free, and dairy-free by allowing you to choose the variety of milk. I hope this helps more than just the person who requested it, as it is delicious. I am thinking of substituting some of the all-purpose flour for a little almond flour next time. If you try this idea before I do, please let us all know how it turns out. If you'd like, you can even add some natural peanut butter, or other nut butter, to the top/middle of the batter for a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup flavor. I took one bite while it was fresh out the microwave, and couldn't stop myself...and it was pretty much guilt-free!
