Low Calorie Mug Cake Recipe

Jump to Recipe

Make your own mug cake for 1/3 the calories of a grocery store mix! The healthy treat landed in at 100 calories and 4 weight watchers points, for the best low calorie mug cake recipe out there!

I like these 100 calorie desserts because it helps to reinforce the idea that you can have a treat, and still meet your weight loss goals. {Check out my list of 8 desserts under 100 calories here!

To make this mug cake lower in calories, I measured out the amount of cake mix it would take to keep the calories under 100. It turned out, with a standard cake mix, to be 2 tablespoons.

I also used egg whites instead of a whole egg to save calories.

The final cake came in at just 100 calories! Of course, I added strawberries and whipped cream, but you can add any toppings you like. Even fruit and yogurt would taste great, or drizzle some warm chocolate on top.

Practicing portion control is the only way to get good at it. And the more often you can eat just one cookie, or just one mug cake, the better you’ll get at eating just one, even if there are more around.

Until you don’t have that much willpower, just make one, 100 calorie treat and there is no need for willpower., It’s impossible to overeat if you just make one, one hundred calorie recipe.

If you only make one serving, you’ll only eat one serving.

SO, today, you NEED this mug cake!
