Healthy Single-Serving Funfetti Microwave Cake
Remember those healthy homemade rainbow sprinkles I made last week? OF COURSE YOU DO! One of the first things I made with that (natural) rainbow goodness was this Healthy Single-Serving Funfetti Microwave Cake — a soft, fluffy, moist cake that’s speckled with fun rainbow confetti dots. This cake is buttery without the butter, sweet without the sugar, and rich without the excess calories. You would never ever ever know this recipe is sugar free, low fat, low carb, high protein, high fiber, and gluten free.
And best of all? THIS CAKE HAS JUST 105 CALORIES!
One bite and you’ll fall in love with this sweet, fluffy, and delicious, 100% from scratch mini Funfetti Cake. No need for that pesky sugar, trans fats, and artificial food coloring.

Spray a standard-sized ramekin with cooking spray.

Add the coconut flour, baking powder, sweetener, and salt, then whisk until fully incorporated.
Gently fold in the confetti.
Scoop batter in the ramekin and microwave for ~3 minutes. Let cool slightly, then enjoy!
**For a vegan version, substitute the egg white for ½ tbs Ground Flaxseed and increase the Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk to ¼ cup. Let the flax and almond milk sit together for a few minutes before continuing on with the recipe.
