Pumpkin Spice Muffin-in-a Mug!

I decided to try and join my Trim, Healthy Mama bloggin’ friends!  I have been on the THM plan for 7 months now!  I am down 49 pounds for those who want to know where I stand(on the scale).

I have one recipe to share which may or may not be new to you!  I came up with it longing for a new Muffin in a Mug to eat for a snack or for breakfast!  I’m sure others may have come up with a similar recipe.


Pumpkin Spice Muffin-in-a-Mug

1 egg

1 Tbs of water

1 Tbs of coconut oil

dash of vanilla

2 Tbs of pumpkin (plain old pumpkin…not the stuff with added ingredients)

1.5 Tbs of Almond flour

1.5 Tbs of  Flax Seed Flour/Meal

1/2 tsp of Aluminum Free Baking Powder

Dash of salt

Cinnamon (two shakes is my preference) 

5 shakes of NuNaturals Stevia

I mix together the wet ingredients first in my coffee mug….then add the dry and mix it well!  You could also add a little ginger if you like that flavor in your pumpkin desserts.  I bake it in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.  This is very close to the original Muffin-in-a-Mug recipe!  I just added the pumpkin and cinnamon!  I love this with a cream cheese frosting!  I just whip some cream cheese with some Stevia and slather it on top of the warm muffin.  Today I just simply enjoyed the muffin with some Fat Free Redi-Whip.  I’m sure it would be just as tasty with some real butter on top!  This is an S meal or snack for those following the plan!

  1. Can’t wait to try this and it is perfect timing too because I was just thinking that I need to come up with a pumpkin version for the MIM. Now I don’t need to. HA HA

  2. Jennifer, I have a whole pinterest board of ‘like peas in a pod’ and would love to have permission to pin your banner photo, credit to you and your blog…is it possible? I adore your felted peas in a pod! Great recipe too!

  3. Thank You!! Just what I was looking for on this (finally) cooler morning in SC…ready for Fall and fall foods! THM ROCKS! I’m down almost 20 pds since my start in mid July and loving every day of it! I’ve discovered I’m allergic to stevia extract (Boooo), but Xyletol worked great as a substitute in this recipe, I used about 1 1/2 tsp and it was just right! Thank you again!
