Healthy Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Dessert in the middle of the week.

Because these frigid temperatures are just not fair.

It's like -30 outside and snowing. And those snow banks just keep getiing bigger.

*Big Sigh*

Okay time to take a deep breath and bake something. I would much rather talk about baking than the weather anyway.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like there can never be too many recipes that invole chocolate chips...and mug cakes. There are just so many variations. Like Katie's chocolate cake in a mug (that frosting just looks to die for). Mug cakes can either be cakey or have that sticky-fudgy texture that I personally love. 

After a few trials of my own, I landed on these almond-flecked, honey-kissed cakes.

They're fluffy and have that nice moist gooey-texture. Golden in colour, these little single serving mug cakes are reminiscent of chocolate chip cookies.

The cakes themselves are just barely sweetened but the dark chocolate adds a bit of healthy sweetness for good measure.

If you're looking for a healthy single-serving dessert, this is it.

Or if you're looking for a quick snack, this is it.

The nice thing about these is that they're gluten-free with a vegan option.
