Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Cereal Cake for One

Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Cereal Mug Cake

I know this looks weird.  It”s not exactly what you would think of when I say super rich and decadent peanut butter cake.  But that”s what it is, I swear.

Ever since my resolution, I have not been buying sweets.  It”s a sad time, folks.  Well, it was a sad time.  Until I rediscovered my love for microwave cakes.

I have two secrets I”m gonna let you in on.  This cake took me 1 minute to cook and like one more minute of prep time.  Also, it ended up being less than 120 calories (Obviously it depends on the ingredients you use; Mine was 112 calories–score!).

Oh, also.  You know how cereal is awesome?  I”m sure you know.  I may have bought three boxes of this goodness (I”m a weak human, folks, it”s true).

PB Toast Crunch

Here”s the method to my madness.

1/4 cup crushed cereal (I used PB Toast Crunch, duh)
1 Tbsp canned pumpkin puree
2 scant Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp almond milk
1 Tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter (or you could use your favorite peanut butter, but it will add calories)
sprinkle of cinnamon

Mix all this together.  Spray a microwavable coffee mug or ramekin with non-stick cooking spray and pour the mixture in there.  Microwave for 55-65 seconds.  Let it cool as long as you can before losing patience.  Dump in on a plate with a drizzle of light chocolate syrup and additional cereal for topping.  Or eat it straight from the mug.  You are the boss of you.

Enjoy 🙂
