If you're craving a delicious dessert, then you need to make this Cinnamon Roll in a Mug. This is a paleo recipe, so you can be sure that it's gluten free and dairy free. Because this cinnamon roll recipe is much healthier than a traditional cinnamon roll, you won't feel guilty for making this recipe once a day. This microwave dessert would make for an easy breakfast or a quick afternoon snack, and you won't need to worry about leftovers because this is a single-serve recipe. Because this is a recipe for one, you won't be tempted to eat more than your share of cinnamon rolls. That makes this the perfect recipe for healthy eaters!

Since i am the only one in my family that is gluten free doing my own desert in a cup would b ideal

The fact that it looks yummy and takes only 2 minutes intrigues me... But I would rather WATCH my great grandma bake a cake. I don't mix well with baked goods.

Cannot wait to try the Cinnamon Roll in a mug. Love anything with cinnamon.

I'd rather make a mug cake. Bakery cakes are a little pricey, but I would definitely bake something if I were having guests.

Mug cakes for if I want something instantly, baking a cake if I want to serve it to family.

If I want a quick yummy snack for myself I just love making a mug cake. But if I'm having people I always enjoy baking a cake!

I would always prefer to bake a cake!

Bake a cake.

I would rather bake a mix cake.

This seems like it would make a very big cinnamon roll. I may stick to the brownie in a mug DIY recipes, but I am intrigued by this cinnamon roll recipe.

I would rather buy a cake from a bakery.

I'd rather bake a cake. Then I can enjoy it warm and make it just the way I like it. But I've been experimenting lately with mug cake recipes and there are actually some good ones out there!

I've never microwaved a mug cake before, so I would definitely give it a try. You can't go wrong baking a cake either!

Mug cakes are convenient and great for portion control. However, if I have the time, I prefer to bake a cake. This looks so yummy!

I've never made a mug cake before, but after seeing this recipe, I think I definitely need to try. I hope mine comes out half as good as the photo!

This looks absolutely amazing! And great for college students without an oven.

I would rather bake a cake, but because of a terminal illness I can no longer bake as much as I used to. For special occasions only and only when I feel well enough, which is usually once a year now I can bake a cake. My husband loves my baked goodies, which I could do it more.

I'd rather bake a cake

I love making mug cakes!

Be still my heart.....I have looked at this recipe on several occasions and thought this is absolutely perfect for me. However, when I finally made it and tasted it I thought I was in heaven!!! I froze half and ate the whole other half all by myself.....yummy malicious!!!!! Thank you for the beautiful recipes as I have many food restrictions I am thrilled to have found your gorgeous recipes.

I'd rather make a mug cake in the microwave. It might be a large serving, but we could share it and still have enough without going overboard.

A mug microwave cake. Yummy.

Normally I like to bake cakes. But individual mug cakes for a girls night is PERFECT!

My choice will always be mug cakes! Whenever I bake a cake, it always seems like I eat the majority of it by myself.
