Flourless Chocolate Mug Cake
This flourless chocolate mug cake’s base is banana, cocoa and egg. But I also add some almond extract to give it some depth of flavor and a wee bit of agave because I don’t find the banana alone is quite sweet enough. I also use a little of the light real whipped cream (in a spray bottle) because it’s only 1 point for 4 tbsp of this whipped cream and I love whipped cream! There are a couple of different brands you can buy that are only 1 point (see Recipe NOTES)
Microwave Chocolate Cake in a Mug
This cake is also super moist, fudgy, rich and filling. And you really can’t even taste the banana. If you don’t want to eat it out of the mug, just switch to a bowl, which is also great for sharing. My daughter and I shared this dessert and it was more than satisfying!
Banana and Egg Mug Cake
I love that I always have these ingredients for this banana and egg mug cake on hand as well. If I have a craving for chocolate, I can quickly whip this up in no time.
This Weight Watchers Microwave Chocolate Banana Mug Cake is the perfect snack or dessert when you are trying to stay on track but are also in immediate need of chocolate! You will be blown away not only by how simple it is, but by how delicious it is!
