Easy Cinnamon Almond Mug Muffin (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Updated on March 8, 2015

For Impromptu Parties @ Home & On The GO....!

Here's a fast and easy recipe for a sweet treat you can make in the microwave! This dish, that's actually made in a mug, is vegan, gluten free and packed with protein. It's fun for big kids and little kids too!

The Idea.....

.... of the taste of red hot candy and the consistency of cake got my mental juices flowing. I must admit I have a sweet tooth but I insist on keeping love handles at bay. I spent some time in the kitchen and came up with a protein based treat. The challenge was to enjoy a warm cake like treat without the carbs. I also wanted something that would be quick and easy to make. Most importantly; it is just one serving so I can avoid any temptation to overindulge. It really is possible to have moments of temporary insanity where we regain consciousness only to see crumbs on our faces and an extra five pounds on the scale. This microwave baked good will rival Jenny Lee and keep Jenny Craig at bay!

      @greenpharmacist: Awe. You're welcome! The secret weapon is the kind of cinnamon: Saigon Cinnamon has this warm, sweet bite to it that makes it notable. This recipe is still good with any kind of cinnamon as well.
