Healthy Apple Pie Mugcake

I needed to try this new trendy thing: baked oatmeal in a mug! However, I felt that a lot of recipes were quick dense. Therefore I tried to make this batter a bit lighter by adding more baking powder and water.

As ‘surprise’ I added a tablespoon of Dutch Bebogeen, also known as Dulce de Leche. Since I love the combination of apple and caramel! I do understand now why this is such a big trend. It is not only real comfort food, but with all these healthy ingredients, it also feels like a great start of the day 🙂

  • In the meantime, you can cut the other part of the apple. Sprinkle some lemon juice on top to prevent the apple from turning brown directly. Mix this with the cinnamon, sugar and raisins.
