Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake Recipe

With fall weather in the air, dropping temperatures oftentimes bring on the feeling of hunkering down, cozying up, and enjoying some comfort food. To keep it healthy, mug cakes are becoming a staple for the Powell Pack because they’re sure to hit that sweet, comfort food spot, but healthy enough so you don’t derail all the amazing transformation progress you’ve made. To help you navigate these sweet treats, I’m building a list of my favorite mug cakes. Before we roll into the newest creation (#punintended), make sure you take a look at my recent Funfetti Mug Cake I created for sweet Marley’s Birthday!

    Hi Heidi! With one scoop of protein, how is it that the nutritional value posted have only 7g of protein? It’s more like 27, right?

      Hi Kathleen: Yes! You are right. That was definitely a typo, and it’s been fixed. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention! 🙂
