Sugar-Free Cinnamon Bun Mug Cake!

Sugar-Free Cinnamon Bun Mug Cake!

To fend off those Monday blues, I found a recipe for a healthy, gluten-free and dairy-free cinnamon bun mug cake, courtesy of Health. I immediately thought that it would pair perfectly with our Cinnamon Bun Wink; and boy, was I right!! These two are a match made in heaven! 

This particular recipe called for maple syrup, but I wanted to keep it 100% sugar-free and low in carbs to avoid a carb-bomb right before bed. So, I just increased the amount of almond milk I used in the recipe, and replaced the maple syrup with 1/4th teaspoon of Stevia. After that quick replacement, this recipe ended up having only 6.3 grams of net carbs, and less than 1 gram of sugar!! Win!!! I will definitely be repeating this recipe any morning that I'm craving some Cinnamon Buns!! 

INGREDIENTS:

DRY:

  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg

WET:

  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons room temperature unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large beaten egg

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large microwave-safe mug, mix together all dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut oil, milk, and vanilla.
  • Add the coconut oil, milk, and vanilla to the mug with the dry ingredients, and mix well. 
  • Then, add in the beaten egg and mix well
  • Microwave on high for 90 seconds to "bake" the cake! 
  • Top with 1 scoop of Cinnamon Bun Wink and an extra sprinkling of cinnamon.
