Ingredients

  • 1 egg white from a large egg
  • 3 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 small apple, peeled and diced

Instructions

  1. Combine the egg white, greek yogurt, applesauce, oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a mug. Whisk everything together with a fork until well combined.

  2. Stir in the whole wheat pastry flour, almond flour, and baking powder. Gently fold in the chopped apple. (If making this into two servings, divide mixture between two mugs at this point).

  3. Microwave for 2 to 2 ½ minutes, or until the top of the mug cake is no longer wet. Let sit to cool for a few minutes, then dig in! (Note – if you divided it into two servings, try microwaving for 1 to 2 minutes instead, as the cake will cook more quickly when divided).
