Fact: You cannot go wrong with peanut butter. Therefore, adding peanut butter to a Devil’s Food mug cake means absolute savory meets sweetness sure to make you, your family, and your friends shout from the rooftops. Ok, maybe not from the rooftops, but dang, this peanut buttery goodness will leave you with rave reviews. It is a Powell Pack favorite in the list of mug cake recipes (Hint: scroll to the bottom if you’re looking for even more sweet tooth-satisfying healthy mug cakes like Funfetti and Cinnamon Roll, yum!).
During this chaotic holiday season, it’s easy to get derailed, and even though I say everything in moderation, there are still temptations. I get it, and that’s why I LOVE mug cakes! Add a little sweetness without sacrificing your diet!
