Sometimes Often times, I let me sweet tooth get the better of me. Of course this usually happens after I try to be good by making myself a nice, healthy dinner.  I’ll get this intense craving for ice cream, cake or cookies. It’s almost as if my subconscious makes room for my sweet splurge by choosing a healthier meal, cancelling out my efforts every time! DARN IT.  I guess the least I can do at that point is make my splurge as guilt-less as possible.  This happened last week when I had a craving for some good old fashion coffee cake.  You know the sweet, fluffy kind with the yummy crumbly top…yum.  So I searched the web for a healthier coffee cake option, and came across a great one.  The entire recipe rings in at just under 240 calories, and it more than satisfies my craving, no post-splurge guilt here!

You can cook this in a microwave too.  Simply pour ingredients into a coffee mug or ramekin (in same method as above), then microwave for approx. 1 minute.
