Peanut Butter Mug Cake--Breakfast

serves 1, maybe 2 if you eat light (it's quite filling; I can't always finish mine)

Prep time and cook time: 2 minutes (cool it for a few minutes though. 

Cost: $.30 ($.45 with chocolate chips)

milk: .03, sugar: .03, peanut butter: .15, pumpkin: .03, whole wheat flour: .06, chocolate chips: .15

1/4 C milk

1 Tbsp brown sugar or honey

3 Tbsp peanut butter (I used creamy)

1 Tbsp pumpkin puree

1/4 C whole wheat flour (or 3 Tbsp whole wheat flour and 1 Tbsp oat flour)

1-3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional, depending on your level of breakfast stoicism; my breakfast stoicism is quite low for the record)

Mix it all together. 

Cook on high in the microwave for about one minute (Mine is usually between 1 minute and 10 second and 1 minute and 20 seconds.) Put it in for another 15 seconds if it's still not done. Note: You want it a little bit undone or raw looking in the center. It will continue to cook as it cools and that will give it just the right amount of moisture. If you cook it till it's dry-looking, it will taste dry. 

Let cool for a few minutes (seriously guys, if you tear into this right of the microwave, you'll burn your tongue. Give it five minutes.)
