I’ve recently become addicted to Chocolate Mug Cake. This is kind of crazy because I’m not actually a huge fan of chocolate but this has been my go-to snack when I’m dying for something sweet. But at 405 calories it is FAR too much to eat and too much chocolate for me at one time. I started making it and cutting it in half but that was annoying to me as well. Tonight I decided I wanted some mug cake but I definitely didn’t even want half of a serving.
So I walked into my kitchen and started eyeing my silicone mini muffin pan and decided that they would be the perfect size for me. I simply made a double batch of chocolate mug cake, portioned them out in the mini muffin pan, and I was returned with perfect little bite sized brownie bites.
These amazing little things come to 24 calories .7 net carbs, 1.6 fat, and 1.3 grams of protein.
Seriously.. go make some of these RIGHT NOW!
2 large eggs
4 Tbls butter
4 Tbls almond flour (We use this one)
3 Tbls unsweetened cocoa powder.
3 Tbls Swerve
4 tsp coconut flour (We use this one)
2 pumps sugar free vanilla syrup (Jordans or Torani)
1 tsp baking powder
- Melt the butter in the microwave for 30-40 seconds until it’s hot and mostly melted.
- Mix in the swerve.
- Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa, baking powder, eggs and vanilla syrup and mix until well combined and there are no lumps.
- Portion out into your mini muffin pan. (mine makes 19 – 20 servings).
- Microwave for about 2 minutes until they look set. (keep an eye on them!)
*If you don’t have sugar free vanilla syrup you can use 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract instead and might need to up your swerve as well for some added sweetness)
*Try adding in unsweetened coconut, Lilys Chocolate Chips (we get the these from Whole Foods, but also available on Amazon. You can get the chips, or just cut a bar into small chunks), Peanut Butter Powder, nuts, etc. There are literally so many options for these!
*Sometimes I like a little “Frosting” for these so i just melt a little cream cheese with some sugar free vanilla syrup and top them with it! If you are making the brownie bites I’d suggest not adding the frosting until you are ready to eat them.
*If you want a larger serving than the bites, mix half the ingredients in a mug and microwave for 70 seconds.
If you try these please let me know what you think! I’m so in love with them!!
