Cinnamon Mug Cake

Mug cakes are becoming a weekly thing for me, and it’s fun substituting ingredients to come up with something new when it’s an individual portion.

There is nothing worse than wrecking a large recipe and throwing it out!

My mug cake dessert quest started with chocolate (of course). But one day, I decided to give the recipe a twist and use more cinnamon instead of cocoa powder.

Since cinnamon has beneficial effects on insulin resistance, this is a great way to get that Cinna-bun taste without any guilt.

Here are the directions:


  • 1 Egg (50 g)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil (15 g)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Flour (7 g)
  • 1 tbsp Almond Flour (7 g)
  • 1 tbsp Erythritol (10 g)
  • 2 tbsp Cream Cheese (30 g)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon (2 g)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
