I called this recipe ”Gluten-free Mug Cake On-the-Go” because you can make it in your mason jar or even in a small microwave-safe container that has a lid and bring easily to work or school. This is very convenient, healthy and delicious snack to have during your busy week!
Yesterday I had my eyes fixed to the TV to watch the Final Women’s Gymnastics in Rio. I was dying to see the American Simone Biles doing her presentation because I’m a HUGE fan of her. Oh God… What is that woman??! Someone can pleeeeease explain to me how she can do all that?! She is AMAZING! Did you guys see her presentation yesterday? Biles has won the past three all-around competitions at the world championships. And yesterday she did again. She got the highest score of this Olympics and got her well-deserved golden metal. All Brazilian TV channels were just talking about her and saying that Biles is the greatest gymnast in the sport’s history. How awesome is that?! I can’t image how proud Americans must be right now! In my option, she is like the new Michael Phelps. I have to say that USA is a machine that creates good athletes. You guys are awesome 😉 !!
So, what is also amazing is this Gluten-free Mug Cake On-the-Go. This is the third mug cake recipe of the week (this Gluten-free Dulce de Leche Mug Cake and Gluten-free Chocolate Mug Cake are the other two) and as you can see it is also gluten-free because it is made with oatmeal flour and banana. This recipe is very moist because of the banana and Greek yogurt. It is healthy too since you don’t have flour, butter or oil in there. It requires a little time to prepare and it needs only 3 minutes to be ready in the microwave.
This is definitely a delicious and nutritious snack you can make for your kids or yourself to bring to work. This is a great snack option to have at home watching the Olympic games (you just need to pour the cake mixture into two mugs or you can do like I did. I poured half of the cake mixture into a mug and the other half I poured into a container with a lid, making this an easy, flavorful and healthy snack to have on-the-go. This way you can bring this cake with you easily. It’s very convenient, right? You can find more mug cakes like this one in this Top 8 Gluten-Free Mug Cake Recipes post!
