I just discovered this brilliant method of making a quick, filling, bread-like snack in a mug, and it couldn’t be easier. It’s just nut or seed butter, egg, and baking soda mixed together and microwaved for 1-2 minutes, depending on your unit.
I found the original recipe at Relizabeth’s Paleo Runner blog where she made it with almond butter. I pulled out the SunButter to make my version the other day, but I can see making this with all kinds of nut butters.
It was so easy to make. Within all of 5 minutes I had mixed the ingredients, cooked it, and eaten the results. Yummy!
For my first try, I did not add any sweetener and my kids felt it needed it. Next time I think I’ll add a bit of pure maple syrup to the mix.
Nut or Seed Butter Mug Bread
2 Tablespoons nut or seed butter
Allowed sweetener (honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, etc.)
1/8 tsp-1/4 tsp baking soda
Any other add-ins such as chocolate chips, coconut flakes, raisins, etc.
Mix egg well in a mug and blend with rest of ingredients until well-combined. Place mug in microwave for 1-3 minutes until bread has risen and is no longer wet. Eat immediately. 1 serving.
