Diabetic christmas sugar free mug cake

The best part is, it’s all made in a mug, so there’s no clean-up – except eating the cake, that is.

Our sugar free mug cake recipes uses stevia instead of sugar, which helps make it diabetes-friendly. One thing we love most about mug cakes is that it’s the perfect size for just one person and can be totally customizable!

Say instead of sprinkles, you’d rather add chocolate chips or maybe a cinnamon swirl… nobody’s stopping you!
