  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon almond milk (or other milk of choice)
  • ½ tesapoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 5 tablespoons almond flour (40g)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-3 strawberries, chopped


  • Melt butter in microwave for about 20 seconds.
  • In a small mug, add in order: egg, honey, almond milk, almond flour, green tea powder, baking powder, and melted butter. Whisk everything together until well incorporated.
  • Carefully stir in strawberries
  • Microwave for about 1 minute 50 seconds.


To cook in the oven: Follow the instructions exactly and place the oven-safe mug on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, or until set.
Eggs are essential when baking with almond flour so if you want to make it without the egg, use all purpose flour, oat flour, or 1:1 gluten free baking flour (like Bob's Red Mill) instead.
