I’M BACK!!! Helloooooo lovelies! I’ve missed y’all this past semester 😦 It was a crazy semester for me so unfortunately I was not able to post anything. But now I am!!! I’m finally done with school- it’s happy and sad at the same time. I can’t believe one school year has gone so fast! But I’m so pumped to be able to keep up my blog this summer. A bunch of you have pinned my site on pinterest, and I can’t thank you enough for the support! ❤
Ok on another note- today is my bday!!!! WOOOO!!!!
hahahaha I love this meme 🙂
What better way to celebrate than with cake? Of course it is a healthy cake. Cuz I gotta get my summer beach bod goin and all. (LOL)
I always thought these honey bears were so cute
As you probably know, there are a billion and one recipes for mug cake. In my opinion, mug cake is awesome because I’m lazy and I get cravings. And I need them satisfied yesterday. But anyway, my mug cake is the best hands down- because it tastes good and its super duper healthy too!
some key ingredients
That’s because it’s a black bean mug cake!!! I know what you’re thinking- gross! But it’s not- trust me.
Beans, beans, they’re good for you heart…
There’s all kinds of healthy ingredients in this cake though. And I guarantee that you can make it in your dorm room, it’s sooo easy.
Looks like real cake to me!
Best Ever Super Duper Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake
1/4 cup black beans from a can
2 tbsp. quick oats*
1 tbsp. olive oil (makes the cake dense)
1 tbsp. milk (or soy milk, almond milk, what ever milk you want!)
1/2 tbsp. honey (you could also use maple syrup)
1 and 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder or mildly sweet hot chocolate mix
Chocolate chips, peanut butter, nuts, dried fruit, optional
Yogurt, fresh fruit, ice cream topping optional
Using a large mug, like a soup mug, microwave the beans for one minute. Then mash well with a fork- really make sure they’re as smooth as possible. If you have a blender in your room than you can use that too. When you’re done, add all of the the ingredients. Mix well, and microwave for one minute. Voila!!! Awesome mug cake!
*If you only have regular oats but you have a blender, you can grind the oats in the blender. It should have the consistency of flour.
