Vegan Pear Streusel Mug Cake is filled with fresh pear, chocolate chips and topping with an almond streusel! Also paleo, gluten-free and grain-free!
Pears remind me of the fruit salad my Dad used to make for Bethany and I as kids when my Mom was working the night shift as a nurse.
He used to cut up apples, bananas, and pears and place them in a large bowl, mix them together and add a few handfuls of chocolate chips of course :). I’d say that my love of fruit stemmed from eating this salad a few times per week, but it also didn’t hurt that there was a plethora of chocolate chips in addition to the sweet goodness of the fresh fruit! Let’s just agree that you cannot beat fresh fruit salad with chocolate chips as the perfect healthy dessert! Am I right?
I don’t know why, but pears are very underrated when it comes to the food blog world. I guess apples just take over and it’s so not fair because pears deserve the spot light this time of year. Pears get their glory today in this beautiful Chocolate Pear Mug Cake!
