I love mug cakes because they are easy to make and all you have to do is mix the ingredients in a large coffee mug then just cook them in the microwave for about 30 seconds to possibly 1 minute and you have an awesome nourishing meal.
So I’m going to give you two recipes for mug cakes that are low in carbohydrates, low in sugar and gluten free. The other recipe is going to be for brussel sprouts delight. I have always enjoyed brussel sprouts especially roasted in the oven with garlic and oil and now it seems that brussel sprouts have become very trendy and popular so I’m going to share with you a recipe that my wife makes.
And now here are those great recipes I told you about it.
BRUSSELL SPROUTS DELIGHT*
- Brussel sprouts – 2 – 3 pounds
- 2 large garlic cloves minced
- Water – 6 cups
- salt – 2 tsp
- extra virgin olive oil – 3 tbsps
Depending on the size of your brussel sprouts you may want to cut them in half. Now bring a large pot of water to a boil and then add the garlic, olive oil, salt and the brussel sprouts to the water. lower the heat a bit and let this set for about 30 to 40 minutes, maybe a little bit more or less time, just make sure that your brussel sprouts are cooked all the way through. But please do not make them too soft. I think it’s best to eat these while they are warm. This makes 6 servings and each of them has about 136 calories, 15 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein.
LOW CARB HOLIDAY PUMPKIN MUG CAKE GLUTEN FREE*
- coconut flour – 2 tbsps
- 1 egg beaten
- coconut milk – 1 tbsp
- baking powder – ¼ tsp
- vanilla extract – ½ tsp
- stevia drops – ¼ tsp

All that you have to do is just add all of the ingredients into a large coffee mug and mix everything together Then just place it in the microwave and set it to high and cook it for about 30 seconds or for however long it takes to totally cook, in your microwave.
