Cake in a mug
Ingredients:

2 Egg whites (**If using liquid egg whites use 1/2 cup and add 20 calories)
1/4 cup pumpkin (3 T applesauce or other starchy carb works well too!)
2 T coconut flour* (1 T also works, and results in 40 fewer calories)
1/2 tsp baking powder
stevia or other granular sweetener to taste
1 T. cocoa powder (Hershey’s Special dark cocoa is best!
Method:

Spray a soup bowl with a very light layer of oil to prevent sticking (not even necessary but makes cleaning up a bit easier).

Mix ingredients well with fork, whisk or spatula

Microwave for 2:30-4+ min on High (depends on your microwave, altitude and the whim of the cupcake gods.)
