If you’re like me, then you usually enjoy a sweeter, more carb-heavy breakfast. But that might not be the best option for your body type. Enter this cinnamon power mug muffin. It’s the dairy-free version of an Atkins favorite that’s grain-free, high-fiber, and sugar-free. But I have included a refined sugar-free option below.
Cinnamon Power Mug Muffin for Sweet Energy without Sugar
The original Atkins recipe is sweetened with stevia, but I’m not a big fan of baking with stevia. So for people like me, I’d like to share another sweetener option. You can substitute 1 tablespoon of another sweetener, or to taste. This can be a sugar-free option, like erythritol, or simply a refined sugar-free option, like maple syrup or coconut sugar.
I also see that they use quite a bit of stevia for one serving. You might choose to start with 1/4 teaspoon if using pure stevia extract, and adjust from there. You can also add a drop to the cinnamon buttery topping for a slightly sweet finish.
