I’ll admit it I have a major sweet tooth. I love candy, cookies and brownies. But I’m also trying to eat healthier and lose a little weight. So keeping these things in my house really isn’t a good idea. But I also don’t want to deny myself an occasional treat, especially if I can make it a bit healthier. I wanted to create something with fruit and maybe some Greek yogurt for added protein but it still had to satisfy my sweet tooth. This is what I came up with.
Greek Yogurt Berry Mug Cake
2 T frozen mixed berries
3 T blueberry Greek yogurt
2 1/2 T flour
2 T + 1t brown sugar
1/8 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t cinnamon
dash nutmeg (optional)
1 T water
Place frozen berries in bottom of mug (these are kind of hard to measure so I normally just cover the bottom of the mug with berries). Microwave on defrost for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
Top berries with yogurt, then all the dry ingredients, and then water.
Stir really well. (When you think it’s fully mixed you might want to stir again. I’ve had flour left at the bottom several times).
Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until set. (Remember microwave times vary).
- 2 Tablespoons frozen mixed berries
- 3 Tablespoons blueberry Greek yogurt
- 2 1/2 Tablespoon flour
- 2 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- dash nutmeg optional
- 1 Tablespoon water
- Place frozen berries in bottom of mug. Microwave on defrost for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
- Top berries with yogurt, then all the dry ingredients, and then water.
- Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until set.
So according to my calculations this comes in right under 200 calories and while it has a lot of carbs (it is cake after all), it also has 7 grams of protein. Hope you enjoy!
