A Cinnabon Classic Roll, while delicious, has nearly 880 calories. That’s horrifying when you consider the average person only needs between 2,000 and 2,500 calories a day.
So what should you do when that cinnamon craving hits? You can get a “MiniBon” (350 calories), which involves driving to a mall, standing in line, and spending money. Or, in just one minute, you can make a cinnamon roll at home — in a coffee mug, no less.
This mug cinnamon roll from A Virtual Vegan even includes a delicious, two-ingredient glaze. Who needs Cinnabon anyway?
You will need:
- 9 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 3 to 4½ tablespoons water
- ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1½ tablespoons coconut sugar (or any fine sugar)
- ½ teaspoon water
- Oil for greasing mug
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Drop of water or milk
This dessert can even be vegan — just make sure you use a plant-based milk for the glaze! Get the full recipe here.
