This is a variant of a recipe I turn to whenever I’m feeling the need for cake or something sweet after dinner. It is adapted from this recipe, but this version is gluten free, has more protein, and in this case, uses the delicious Wild Friends Gingerbread Peanut Butter I had during the holiday season.

Gingerbread Peanut Butter Mug Cake
