Blueberry and Chia Skinny Mug Cake

When you have a lonely pack of blueberries in the fridge this is a perfect way of using them before they turn into fluffy fur balls. You know, that feeling when you reach into the fridge for that pack of blueberries or raspberries and they have quite simply gone off. Well that won’t happen when you have tried this simple mug cake, it’s a lovely breakfast, snack or dessert. Whatever time of day you decide to enjoy it you will always have a quick use for your fruit!

These Lo-Dough Mug Cakes are great for any time of day. I enjoy them for breakfast but they are fantastic as a dessert or for those times when you feel the uncontrollable urge to eat something filling and tasty! I love them. Enjoying a different one every morning is my idea of variety and starting the day with a satisfying smile! The benefits of using Lo-Dough instead of flour are fantastic. Lo-Dough is incredibly low in carbs, low in calories and has filling power. It’s also gluten free. Mug cakes are so filling and a gorgeous. Be creative and experiment with flavours and fillings and create your own signature Mug Cake!

In another bowl combine all the breadcrumbs, egg, sweetener, chia seeds and yoghurt together, mix thoroughly. This should be like a wet cake mix. Spoon the cooked blueberries into the bottom of your cup, then cover with the cake mix and smooth but don’t press down. Place uncovered in the microwave for two minutes.
