1tbsp sugar
1tbsp Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened
2tbsp apple sauce (or smashed banana, or canned pumpkin puree)
1pinch of salt and baking powder
mix and put into a microwave or oven safe bowl (a small one like custard cup or a paper cupcake liner works too) microwave for 30 seconds-minute or 3-10 minutes in the oven! since there is no eggs the center can still be under cooked if you prefer a lava cake! since this is only 96 calories, add a drizzle of peanut butter, a small scoop of low cal ice cream, cool whip or non dairy whip, get creative!
