Mugcake Mondays: Inside out caramel apple mugcake

This recipe has been one of my most popular on instagram so I decided it was worthy enough to upload to my blog.

With it feeling like fall around here lately, I have been in the mood for all that fall brings like caramel apples. So I made this healthier twist on a caramel apple – a single serve mugcake nestled inside a hollowed out apple then topped with date caramel, peanuts, peanut butter, and dark chocolate dreams. It’s my new favorite way to eat mugcakes and really, my new favorite dessert. It’s a great way to sneak in a fruit serving with dessert and since it’s made with mostly healthy ingredients like oats, whole wheat flour, natural peanut butter, dates, etc; it’s actually pretty healthy, too! You can easily leave out the dark chocolate dreams peanut butter to cut back on the sugar!
