Chocolate Mug Cake

If you’re looking for an easy, low point dessert recipe…this is it!

This chocolate mug cake is only 3 points for blue, green and purple.

It’s as easy as mixing the ingredients together and popping it in the microwave!

For this mug cake I used:

  • All-purpose flour
  • Granulated Splenda
  • Cocoa powder
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Skim milk
  • Applesauce
  • Vanilla extract

These are all ingredients I usually have on hand so I can whip this up anytime I want.

As far as topping the cake I sometimes use fat-free whipped cream or PB2 powder when I’m in the mood for peanut butter.

I don’t know about you but I love chocolate and peanut butter together!

Two tablespoons of the PB2 powder is only 1 point.

Overall this is a quick and easy recipe for when you’re in the mood for something sweet.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. Always looking for new ways to use PB2! Just added a PB2 chocolate spread myself.
