Low-Carb Blueberry Mug Cake for One

I can’t just walk past fresh berries at the farmers market, so it’s important to have a few low-carb berry dessert recipes on hand once the weather warms. A few small treats here and there prevents me from an all-out binge later on!

Mug cakes are the perfect portion control. If you make a full sheet cake, it’s so easy to go back for seconds or thirds. Making a second mug cake is enough work to usually deter me from going back for more. By the time I get the ingredients ready, I realize that I am satisfied and full after one.
