Is it just me or are meals-in-a-mug the best invention ever? Trendy, fun and perfect for one, mug meals are great for a quick dinner, a mid-day snack, or, in my case, making desserts that are to die for! If you have a sweet tooth or are craving a treat, you have to try these recipes for one-mug desserts. The best part: Many of these recipes can be made paleo-friendly, gluten-free or dairy-free! 


*For recipes that aren't already gluten-free, dairy-free or paleo-friendly: substitute coconut flour, almond flour or almond meal for all-purpose flour; use coconut milk or almond milk instead of milk; and try olive oil or coconut oil instead of butter.
