Cinnamon Roll in a Mug

Trying to slowly start making my breakfasts again, even if it is just oatmeal. The first breakfast I tried from Happy Herbivore Meal Mentor was this gem. Once I got comfortable putting it together, it's a very quick and easy breakfast to make for 1. It's also incredibly yummy. 

¼ cup flour 
¼ tsp baking powder 
2-4 tbsp soy or almond milk, depends on the brand 
1 tbsp pure maple syrup 
¼ tsp vanilla extract 
1 tbsp brown sugar 
heaping ¼ tsp ground cinnamon 
3-oz plain vegan yogurt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk flour and baking powder together until well combined. 
  2. Stir in milk, maple and vanilla. 
  3. If the batter is very dry, add 1-2 tbsp more milk (batter should be thick, not dry or runny). 
  4. Spoon into a microwave-safe coffee mug and set aside briefly. 
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk brown sugar and cinnamon together then sprinkle over the batter in your mug. 
  6. Use a knife to swirl cinnamon-sugar into the batter. Or use a spoon to mix it in, although not necessarily thoroughly. 
  7. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 25 seconds. 
  8. Top with yogurt or eat on the side.
