Cookies & Cream Mug Cake Recipe

This post first appeared on Heidi Powell - Motivation. Read the original article.

You did it! You made it through Thanksgiving without indulging in every sweet in sight. Or maybe you didn’t, and you found yourself reaching for extra helpings of Grandma’s famous fudge, and ya know what? That’s okay too. But with Christmas comin’ in hot there is bound to be sugar and treats by the masses making their way to your doorstep. 

With sweet treats at every turn, this time of year can feel like a struggle. Luckily, there are plenty of sweet little treats you can still enjoy without breaking your calorie bank! Remember, it’s all about balance—finding your sweet spot—between practicing healthy habits and enjoying all those comfort foods and memories that mean so much this time of year. I love these little Mug Cakes exactly for that reason. They’re every single delicious little bite you might be craving, all while still meeting your macros and keeping you on track to reach your goals! Plus, the prep and cook time is minimal so you don’t have to devote an entire day to your kitchen!

My Other Favorite Mug Cake Recipes

    
While the holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year, I do know that it comes with its own unique set of problems when it comes to staying on track with your health + fitness goals. With peppermint mochas and Christmas cookies available just about everywhere you turn, it can be a struggle to find that perfect balance between staying on course and #treatyoself. But with a Mug Cake this good, Santa won’t be the only one enjoying some cookies this year, AND you’ll be one step closer to reaching those transformation goals! Try it out and let me know what you think!
