Cinnamon Roll MIM (Muffin In A Mug)

This Cinnamon Roll MIM (Muffin In A Mug) recipe is just amazing. No, it doesn’t look like a cinnamon roll and it doesn’t quite taste like one, either. BUT it is perfect for when you are craving something a little sweet for breakfast and you can’t have or don’t want the real thing! I mean, let’s face it…who wants to eat something knowing it’s going to make us fat???? Not ME!!

Especially not when I can eat one of these…

Apple Pie Muffins

I have seen several recipes for these apple pie muffins online. Some call for oat fiber, some for whole wheat flour. I have seen some that called for greek yogurt and some that didn’t.  So I looked at all of them, compared them and came up with one that I thought I would like.  I wasn’t disappointed.  I don’t think you will be, either… At least I hope not. I added a couple things I didn’t see in any of the recipes I saw online. You know, my little stamp to make them my very own.

For my THM peeps, these are an E snack (2 is a serving) and are perfect for this time of year. You could make these with pumpkin for a nice treat, too! That would be perfect with a dollop of FF whipped topping! YUM!
