Gluten Free Vanilla Oat Sunbutter Mug Cake with Strawberries | Migraine Diet

This is quite possibly the greatest dessert ever invented for migraineurs. It’s simple, uses pantry ingredients, and can be made quickly for a sweet pick me up. Did I mention it’s gluten free, nut free, and can also be dairy free/vegan? I have been slaving over this recipe all week, and I’ve probably eaten more mug cakes than one person should – which really defeats the whole purpose of mug cakes! When I finally felt like I had the right combination of ingredients, I got so excited to get this to you guys right away. So I won’t be jabbering on in this post. I’ll save that for next week when I post my recipes from France!

For flour I like to use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour and White Rice Flour. I am also a huge fan of Oatly Oat Milk. Without futher ado, please enjoy the reason I’ve gained 5 pounds this week.
