(recipe uses metric measures so you may need to add slightly more ingredients if you use US measuring but still use 1 large egg)
2 Tblsp ground flax (I used organic golden flaxseed meal)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon**
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp xylitol (or 1 sachet Stevia)
1 large egg
2 T dried currants
Mix first six ingredients together in a mug using a fork. Add in the currants and stir through. Microwave on high for 60 seconds. Allow to cool for a minute then turn out of the mug, slice into four rounds and butter OR have a mixture of cottage cheese and plain Greek yogurt along with it instead of cream cheese.
This is deceptively filling and very tasty. While it seems high in calories I am never hungry before lunch time, it carries me through at least 4 or 5 hours, believe it or not.
**Or substitute spices that will taste more like hot cross buns… use 1 ¼ tsp cinnamon and ¼ tsp mixed spice along with 1/2 tsp zest from an orange or lemon
