Mug Cookie for One!

Any dessert that fits in a mug is great! To know that you’ve got your own single serving of something warm and delicious is enough to bring joy to anyone’s day.

We’ve made lots of mug cakes in the past but with our new discovery of Homemade Chocolate Chips, we decided to make a classic chocolate chip mug cookie. Check out our easy recipe and our simple tip to make sugar free chocolate chips in a pinch!

The ingredients are super simple and you can definitely use store-bought chocolate chips. Lily’s makes a great bag of chips and Hershey’s does as well. Remember though, some sugar-free candies, Hershey’s included, use maltitol, of which we don’t recommend eating too much. Maltitol is a sugar alcohol, like erythritol, that is known to cause stomach bloating, cramps and “toilet troubles”. We’ve tested it and quickly realized it’s better to steer clear of commercially advertised sugar-free products and just make your own! That way, you know exactly what’s going into your body and if you react negatively to something, you’ll know what it was.

Our go-to sweetener is erythritol because it’s way more gentle on the digestive system and doesn’t spike your blood sugar!
