SCD Recipe: Cinnamon Mug Cake

It can be hard to have an easy dessert on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. When you’re the only one eating something, things can go to waste. Or maybe you’re just looking for a one-time treat. This SCD Cinnamon Mug Cake is the perfect remedy! It’s simple to make and it works perfectly for breakfast or a light dessert.


What I really like about this is the soft texture. It has just the right amount of moistness, not dry and not the slightly wet texture some almond flour baked desserts get. This would be perfect with some berries on sliced bananas on top!
