Mug recipes.Cinna-yum, Cinna-bun 

I was in Halifax all weekend meeting up with school friends, Quebec friends and family for the first time in a while. It was the most lovely time! I attended Diner en Blanc in Halifax which was located at Citadel Hill. It was even better than I expected, very elegant but very fun.

I am using my incredie vacation weekend as my excuse for not posting the Friday Mug Recipe, so as I sit in the Maritime Bus station (I swear I could pay rent I’m here so much) I am compiling this blog to share with you the delicious, not so nutritious, blessing to all of mug-kind: The Cinnamon Roll in a mug. Or as I like to call it: The Cinna-yum, Cinna-bun.

This decadent mug full of cinnamon flavor is the perfect sweet tooth snack. This recipe was slightly adapted from one found on Chocolate Covered Katie. Link at the bottom.



1/3 Cup and 1 Tblsp Oat flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 table salt

1 Tblsp vegetable oil.

3 Tbsp ripe mashed banana


1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

Vanilla frosting


In a small bowl, combine oat flour, baking powder and salt. Add in oil and mashed bananas. Stir until a dough is formed. Roll dough into a ball. Set aside.

In a bowl mix together the cinnamon and brown sugar. Take some flour and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough ball into a long rectangle.

Spread a small amount of butter or margarine on the surface of the dough. Rub in the cinnamon and brown sugar mix.

Roll the dough into a pinwheel for a cinnamon roll shape. Grease the inside of your favorite mug and press the roll into it. Microwave for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Spread some fronting on top! (I suggest cream cheese frosting it’s the best)

This recipe was modified slightly from one found on

Happy microwaving!
