Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1
  • 1 Tablespoon butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon sweetener
  • ¼ cup almond meal (you can use almond flour too, but almond meal gives it the perfect consistency)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg yolk
  • dash salt
  • 3 Tablespoons sweetener
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 oz cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cream
  1. Melt butter in mug in microwave (or on stovetop).
  2. Add sweetener, almond flour, vanilla, egg yolk, baking soda and salt to mug.
  3. Stir vigorously and set aside.
  4. To make cinnamon "sugar": in small bowl combine 3 T sweetener and 1 T cinnamon (this makes enough for two cinnamon rolls)
  5. Use a knife to create swirls and gaps in the batter in the mug (don't worry if it looks messy,) then sprinkle 2 teaspoons of cinnamon "sugar" over it all.
  6. Microwave mug for one minute.
  7. To make the icing: in another mug, soften 1 oz of cream cheese by microwaving for 5-1o seconds. Stir in 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon "sugar" and 1 teaspoon of cream and beat until smooth.
  8. Put cinnamon roll on plate and drizzle icing over top and serve.
  9. To make in the oven, use a lightly greased or lined muffin tin (for regular-sized muffins) placing one serving per hole. Bake in 350° oven until light brown. Drizzle icing then serve.
