  1. Add the coconut oil to a tall mug and microwave on high for 10-20 seconds, or until melted.
  2. Crack the egg into the mug and whisk well (for the vegan ‘egg’, scoop into the mug and mix with the coconut oil).
  3. Add the rice malt syrup and banana to the mug and mix well, until all the wet ingredients are combined.
  4. Add the LSA, baking powder and cinnamon and mix again, until the mixture has a smooth, batter-like consistency.
  5. Microwave in the mug on high for about 1 minute, 20 seconds, or until the top looks cooked through.
  6. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes before eating straight from the mug with a teaspoon; Or, flip the mug upside down onto a plate – It should slide right out!

Don’t have a microwave or prefer not to use one? This can also be baked in the oven; Just pour the mixture into a lined muffin tin and bake at 160 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
