dreamy cinnamon roll in a mug // THM // Trim Healthy Girl

The other night, when trying to fall asleep (of course), I suddenly got a terrible craving for a cinnamon roll.  I began concocting fast, easy cinnamon roll recipe in my mind.  Then I wondered if I could make it THM (Trim Healthy Mama) approved too. (Or, since I’m not a mama, THG–that’s Trim Healthy Girl approved ;-)) I went to sleep dreaming about cinnamon…

I woke up early the next morning starving.  I set the coffee to brew and immediately began constructing my (literally) dreamy concoction.  First try–I couldn’t believe that it was so much like a real cinnamon roll.

I made one for my my mom, she took a bite and said, “Wait, this is sugar-free?!?” Oh, yes, Momma.  And gluten-free too!

Now you want the recipe…I thought you’d never ask 😉

{This is an ‘S’ meal}

Combine in a microwavable mug:
1T Butter (melted)
1 tsp. (1 package) of Truvia
OR you can also substitute the THM Sweet Blend to taste. I would recommend start with half the allotted amount and go from there. {affiliate link}
Dash Salt
Dash Vanilla
Egg yolk
1/4 C Almond Meal or Almond Flour {affiliate link}
Pinch Baking Soda

Mix well, smoothing out the top. Then use a knife to cut a “swirl” through the batter.

Stir together in a separate bowl:
1 T Sugarless Sugar OR 2 tsp. (2 packages) Truvia

1/4 tsp Cinnamon


Pour into the “swirl” and allow for a nice layer over the top too! When this has cooked, it’s going to be nice and gooey on the inside, but have some crispy edges at the top!

Microwave for 45 seconds.

In another bowl, whip up:
2 oz Cream Cheese
1 tsp (1 package) Truvia OR use THM Sweet Blend to taste (again, start with half) ground in a coffee grinder so it has a nice powdered consistency. {affiliate link}


This is for the icing, so you may wish to use more or less sweetener to taste. 🙂

Spread it over the top of your cinnamon roll and enjoy!
