This is a homemade, low carb, full flavor dessert that is prepared in just 5 minutes! I found many recipes online but the easiest one I found was on Kirbie Cravings with just 3 ingredients. I made just one change to make it low carb for my Type 1 Diabetic children.

Instructions
  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Pour ingredients into microwave-safe mug.
  3. Microwave for 1-1/2 minutes.
  4. Top with whipped cream, if desired.

I suggest whisking the ingredients in a medium size bowl. I tried in my mug as the original recipe said, but it was difficult.

It will be a thick batter, make sure the eggs are fully combined within the ingredients. You can use any Jif creamy peanut butter, I used Jif Natural Peanut Butter because it is lower carb at only 8 carbs per 2 tablespoons, or 12 total for this recipe. If you are looking for even lower carbs, the Simply Jif Peanut Butter only has 7 carbs for 2 tablespoons.

I also used Truvia Natural Sweetener because is 0 carbs which beats 4 carbs per teaspoon of ordinary sugar. If you want to use regular sugar, increase it to 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of sugar for this recipe which would add 17 carbs for this recipe.Peanut Butter Mug Cake

The result is a snack-size peanut butter cake that has the texture of angel food cake or a sponge cake. It is very moist, light and airy. Eat it straight out of the cup or on a plate.Peanut Butter Mug Cake

You can even add whipped cream and toppings like mini-chocolate chips for the ultimate guilt-free snack!Peanut Butter Mug Cake

The total carbs in this recipe is just 12 carbs per serving, a tasty, low-carb snack or dessert for anyone, but especially good for Type 1 Diabetics and Type 2 Diabetics who count carbs with every meal.
