What can you do with 5 minutes, a mug and some cinnamon? Make yourself an individual cinnamon roll. Yes, it’s that easy. Since sharing is caring, this recipe can be doubled and divided into two mugs.


Optional Vegan Cream Cheese Icing:


  1. In a bowl combine 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with 1 teaspoon sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, Vega powder, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
  3. Add water, coconut oil and vanilla, stirring until combined.
  4. Sprinkle bottom of mug with 1/3 cinnamon sugar mixture and add 1/2 of your batter.
  5. Sprinkle with 1/3 cinnamon sugar mixture.
  6. Add remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture.
  7. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Start at 1 1/2 minutes and add 30 sec increments until it's slightly spongy but not doughy. If you doubled the recipe microwave one mug at a time.
  8. Allow to cool.
  9. Optional: Top with dollop of vegan cream cheese (or go all out and pipe a swirl of cream cheese icing on top).

Additional Notes:

Don't have an microwave? Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes or until desired texture.

Piping: Did you know you don't have to have a pastry bag to pipe? If you want to go all out and pipe a swirl of cream cheese, you can do that with a freezer bag. Simply put icing into a small freezer bag, push to bottom, cut hole in bottom side and pipe out of hole.
