Paleo Apple Raisin Cake in a Mug


I love our Paleo Cake in a Mugs. They're fast, moist, and healthy in an individual serving. (Put "cake in a mug" into the search box if you want to try the other two -  a cocoa version and a pumpkin, both pumpkin-based)

This one is applesauce-based and has organic raisins and was a wonderful breakfast with coffee. Hey, it has an egg in it!

I rubbed coconut oil inside a big coffee mug.  (This mug is from honeyvillegrain.com and so is the natural almond flour)
I added the dry ingredients and STIRRED:

1/2 cup almond meal ( I always use the unblanched, or natural)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
just a dash of nutmeg
THEN I just stirred the dry ingredients with the fork I was going to eat it with.Then added the wet ingredients:
2 TBSP real maple syrup (honey works, too)
2 drops real vanilla
1 egg
3 TBSP applesauce (with no added sugar)

1 heaping TBSP organic raisins (dried cranberries would be nice, too)

I stirred again, making sure I'd stirred all the almond flour up off the bottom of the mug.

I put it in the microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds.  






And that's it. Breakfast! Or dessert! Or a mid-afternoon snack!  Look down into that mug......
