Gluten Free Blueberry Mug Cake or Muffin (Sugar-Free Option)

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!

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! Continue reading “Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake (Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free)”

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!
