Who needs Cinnabon when you can make your own Cinnamon Roll Muffin In A Mug with Cream Cheese Frosting in less than 3 minutes?!
This sweet little low-carb MIM satisfies all of my cinnamon roll cravings, and it couldn’t possibly be easier to make. Plus, you probably have all the ingredients on hand!
Cinnamon Roll Muffin In A Mug with Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:
- golden flaxseed meal
- almond flour
- xylitol (or you can use Gentle Sweet in half the amount, or Super Sweet in a quarter of the amount, if you prefer)
- baking powder
- mineral salt
- an egg
- vanilla extract
- cream cheese (just a tablespoon)
- half & half
Microwaved for just a minute in a mug or small jar, you’ll end up with the most delightful, high protein, moist, cake-y, cinnamon-y muffin ever. You might want to even skip the few seconds it takes to whip up the cream cheese frosting, but I adore this treat best with a creamy layer in each bite!
I find the Cinnamon Roll Muffin In A Mug with Cream Cheese frosting to be quite filling, so it’s a great breakfast with a side of berries (for more fiber) and/or with a coffee. It naturally contains plenty of protein, so you don’t “need” to add anything else to this treat to keep you feeling full until your next meal.
I hope you love this muffin as much as I do!
