We had our wrap party last night, and everyone feels that we are almost at the finish line. People are buying suitcases and clearing out their shelves and fridges. Knowing that I cook, some have come to me with their leftover or never-opened sauces, noodles, oatmeal and eggs, etc., hoping that I will somehow be able to use them.
I made a couple of simple and yummy mug cakes for breakfast with some of the ingredients that I received. If you are bored with oatmeal, try this chocolate oatmeal mug cake for a change. It actually takes less time to cook than your usual oatmeal. All you need is a blender and a microwave. Nothing beats a little dark chocolate to set you in the right mood for the day. And you can save the leftover as a snack or dessert later.
1 Minute Chocolate Oatmeal Mug Cakes
1/4 cup rolled oats, ground to flour
3 tablespoon +1 teaspoon milk of choice
2 scant tablespoons 100% dark cocoa powder
2 teaspoon brown sugar or xylitol
1/4 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil
Blend the rolled oats first before adding the rest ingredients in the blender, and then pour the mixture into two greased tea cups or ramekins. Microwave for about 1 minute each.
If you mix by hands, mix all dry ingredients together, and then all wet ingredients together before pouring the wet into the dry and mix thoroughly until smooth.
The length of microwave time depends on the power of your machine. You might need to try one to figure out exactly how long it will take to make the cake in your microwave. Start at a low time, 45 to 50 seconds and if it’s not done give it another 10 to 15 seconds.
You can also bake them in your toaster oven for 15 minutes.
