How to Make a Funfetti Mug Cake – with Simple, Clean Ingredients
I’ve kept this healthy funfetti mug cake whole grain AND gluten free by using oat flour as my base. And, instead of buying oat flour, save some bucks by blending up oats and making your own! (Be sure to use certified gluten free oats/flour for a 100% gluten free funfetti mug cake.)
Personally, I’m always looking for ways to keep my grocery bill lower, and homemade oat flour is a simple budget swap that doesn’t take much extra effort. Plus, cutting down on costs is especially important when it comes to meal prep for college students!
Then, you have the option to make your funfetti mug cake with butter, OR with coconut oil for a dairy free dessert. I think butter creates a fluffier texture, and I like to use grass-fed butter because it’s cleaner and more nutritious. But, coconut oil will also work just fine!
And, with the natural no-calorie sweetener of your choice, you can keep the sugar content to a minimum. In this gluten free funfetti mug cake for one, there are only 4g of sugar total—sprinkles and all!
