This gluten free funfetti mug cake is the perfect easy, healthy dessert! I love mug cakes, they’re so simple and so fun! There’s nothing better when you’re craving an easy dessert. Plus- easy clean up! You can make everything in the same mug you cook it in. Give me anything that has minimal dishes! What’s your favorite type of cake?! I love vanilla! I also love lemon cake. But, I’m not picky haha.

Why I Add Collagen:

I love to add collagen into my recipes because it gives them more protein. Also I love the benefits I personally see from adding collagen into my diet. I think adding it in has helped with my joint health as well as my hair/skin. But everyone is different and sees different results. Always do what works best for you and remember that I’m not a doctor.

Not only do I like adding it to easy desserts like this, I add collagen daily to my coffee. It adds 9 grams of protein! I like to add a flavored one because it’s a healthier alternative to creamer in your coffee. Plus it dissolves right in and isn’t messy like adding protein into your coffee. Add a little unsweetened almond milk and it’s the perfect way to start the day!

What Collagen I Use:

I love this Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen. All of the products they make are incredibly high quality, ethically sourced. Whenever I’m buying animal protein of any kind, that’s always what I look for. None of their collagens have an artificial flavor taste at all, which is important to me as well. Also it isn’t chalky like some protein powder can be. You can find the collagen I used here. Every product they make is not only delicious but also the best quality around!

The collagen adds the perfect touch to this Funfetti Mug Cake!
