|Breakfast at my desk.|
Our office got moved to a "new" building. As part of a consolidation effort for our university, one of the old dorms has been changed into an office building. When I say "changed" I mean the beds have been removed and our office furniture has been moved in. So, I can now say that I have stayed in a dorm at UAF!
One of the perks of our new office space is a kitchen with a working oven. The other building we were in did not have an oven. So, I figured it would be wonderful to bring cinnamon rolls and bake them in our oven so our whole floor would smell warm, cinnamony and sweet. I made these cinnamon rolls without the caramel (I wanted to see how the oven baked before I added the caramel), put them together at home while Dave and I watched football and then put them in the refrigerator overnight. I took them to work the next morning and baked them there. And, because there was no caramel sauce I made a quick cream cheese frosting for the top.

Now, I am all about bringing treats for everyone else, but I am not about to leave myself out of a treat opportunity. So, I made a muffin in a mug cinnamon roll. It was easy and very delicious, warm out of the microwave and topped with syrup. Next time I'll top with a little butter too, just because I can. I also have decided to keep a couple of these mixes in my desk drawer so when I need a little warm treat I can whip it up any time I want.
|My little treat mix I brought to work.|
|Mixed and ready for the microwave|
Cinnamon Muffin in a Mug
1-1/2 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp. sweetener of choice, right now I'm loving a monk fruit-erythritol mix
1/2 tsp. cinnamon, I like a little more
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a microwave safe cup or bowl, melt butter. Add all the other ingredients to the cup and mix well. Microwave for 60-90 seconds until batter is completely cooked (at home it took 60 seconds, at work it took 90).
Top with syrup, keto cream cheese frosting, chocolate chips or butter.
