Yes, I’m addicted to playing with the muffin in a mug recipes!
There is something about the cool temperatures that make me want to bake. I will admit I have been doing less of that since becoming gluten free and even less with Trim Healthy Mama.
Until I found that the muffin in the mug was doable in the oven. I also started making my own almond milk and use the leftovers to make almond flour, so I have plenty on hand.
And now, since we’re rolling into apple season, it only seemed right to try an apple MIM.
Don’t worry, this is still an S even with the small amount of apple, if you are a Trim Healthy Mama. A half an apple is an S helper in the book, you only use a tablespoon in this recipe.
The recipe is gluten and dairy free too, a nice change for those with sensitivities.
I like to use this little Pyrex dishes for making my MIM. They are the perfect size and safe for the oven. (Affiliate Link)
Also, make sure you’re looking at the ingredient list on your vanilla. They like to sneak in junk….this one is a good one that we use. (Affiliate link)
If you’re looking for a good tasting, pure stevia, check out the Trim Healthy Mama brand.
