Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes or less
Cool: 15 minutes


2 tbsp. whole-wheat flour (or whatever flour you have on hand)

2 tbsp. old-fashioned oats

1 tbsp. Swerve brown sugar substitute (or another 0-calorie brown sugar swap that measures 1:1 like sugar)

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

2 tbsp. (about 1 large) egg white or fat-free liquid egg substitute

2 tsp. light butter in a tub

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

3 tbsp. light whipped topping (thawed from frozen)


Spray a wide-bottomed microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add flour, oats, brown sugar substitute, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.

Add egg white/substitute, butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until uniform. (Whisk with a fork, if needed.) Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until set.

Immediately run a knife along the edges to help separate the cake from the mug. Gently shake mug to release, and transfer cake to a plate. Let cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Slice cake in half horizontally. Top the bottom slice with whipped topping, followed by the remaining cake slice.
