Dough ingredients:

  • ¼ Flour

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of melted butter or an oil of your choice

Filling ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of melted butter/ oil of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar/ sweetener of your choice
  • Dash of vanilla extract to your own strength



Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Crack both eggs into it and add melted better/ or oil and mix until it thickens, then set aside. After this, add melted oil/ butter to small bowl alongside sweetener/sugar, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. Set aside again. Mix the dough one more time, then spread onto a long strip of parchment paper. Spread the filling on top of the dough and roll into a spiral shape. Pop the cinnamon roll into a mug, then into the microwave for approximately 2 minutes; a bit less if you desire a doughy roll, or a bit more for a crisp. Top with a frosting combo of your choice.
