  • 1 ½ tablespoon all-natural peanut butter *
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoon unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 3 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour *
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt


  • In a 12 oz size mug, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract and milk. Stir until completely smooth. A fork works well to whisk it all together.
  • Add the sugar, cinnamon, flour, baking powder and salt and stir until combined. Careful not to over mix it, just until you can't see dry flour anymore.
  • Place in the microwave uncovered, cook for about 1 minute.
  • Sprinkle the top with some more cinnamon and sugar if you like. Serve immediately.


*In order to be nut-free, use tahini or sunflower seed butter.
*In order to be gluten-free, use a gluten-free flour. Our recommendation is oat flour but others may work.
