I was searching online for a Slimming World microwave chocolate mug cake recipe to make, and the recipes I found weren’t quite hitting the spot.  I got the impression that’s what a few people thought about the recipes they were finding too.  There was definitely something missing from the chocolate mug cake recipe so I decided to experiment and see if I could improve on what was out there on the internet.

I think I’ve come up with the answer, so I thought I’d share my Slimming World microwave chocolate mug cake recipe with you to see what you think.  The great thing about Slimming World and food optimising is that it’s not about what you can’t eat, it’s about what you can eat.

You can eat a chocolate mug cake, if you use Slimming World friendly ingredients.  It’s about taking a recipe and making some adaptions to it so that you can eat it and still lose weight.  I like that challenge about Slimming World. There is often a substitution that can be made for most ingredients changing an unhealthy recipe to syn free or a very low syns version to keep you on plan.
