SCD Recipe: 90-second Banana Nut Mug Muffin

I don’t use the microwave a lot, but for some things it’s great. One of those things is having a tasty, hot breakfast in less than five minutes.

Mug cakes that can be whipped up and microwaved in 90 seconds have beccome very popular and there’s no reason why those of us that follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) have to be left out.

One thing I get asked about a lot is what to have for breakfast on SCD. These muffins make a great breakfast and they’re really easy to make. I can easily make one before work even when I don’t have a lot of time and it’s a nice break from my usual smoothie, yogurt and fruit, or eggs.
