Mmmm. Cinnamon Rolls. You guys! This recipe is all kinds of amazing. Picture this…a lazy Sunday morning, cup of coffee, piping hot cinnamon roll in a mug, scrolling through instagram and twitter. That was me yesterday and it could be you too! Word. Just try this!
(Paleo) Cinnamon Roll In A Mug
2 tablespoons coconut flour (find it here)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of fine grain sea salt
Pinch of nutmeg
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 egg (or 2 ***flax eggs)
2 tablespoons milk of your choice (this was made with almond milk)
1 ½ tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil (or butter), melted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon (find it here)
1 tablespoon milk of your choice
1 teaspoon coconut sugar (find it here)
½ teaspoon lemon juice
Mix all cinnamon roll ingredients in mug, adding the baking powder last.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
In the meantime mix all the icing ingredients in a small bowl.
Drizzle icing over hot cinnamon roll.
***Flax eggs are the perfect vegan baking substitute and they’re super easy to make. Process 1tbsp of raw flax seed in a coffee grinder or food processor until you have a fine powder. In a small bowl, add flax powder first and then gradually 3tbsp of cold water stirring as you go (use a fork for this part so you can work on any lumps). Place the mixture in the refrigerator for about an hour so the flax eggs can set. Do not skip that step!!! When your flax egg sets, use it just as you would a regular egg.
