If you’re anything like me, your sweet tooth will never be a thing of the past. At least once (or twice, or three times) a week I get a craving for something sweet. My typical go-to is a piece of fruit, but sometimes that doesn’t do the trick. I’m a pretty lazy cook, so it took me a while to find sweet snacks that are quick and easy to make.

Substitute sugar with anti-inflammatory sweeteners. One way I squash my sweet tooth in the winter is by adding honey to hot tea. (Plus, drinking tea is much better when you have a cute tea infuser like this one).

You can also swap out the sugar in your classic recipes for one of these paleo-friendly sweeteners and use almond flour in place of all-purpose flour!

Here is one of my favorite anti-inflammatory friendly sweet treats that is delicious and easy to make for breakfast or for a snack.


muffin in a jar

Muffin in a Jar (or Mug)

This dessert or breakfast is delicious and EASY to make when you are craving a cake or muffin. Get a coffee mug or small jar and mix together:
Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Servings 1


  • ¼ cup flaxseed
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp powdered stevia
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp applesauce no added sugar
  • ¼ cup of your favorite fruit I chose peaches


  • In a mug or small jar, mix all ingredients well.
  • Place the mug in the microwave for 1 minute.  Be careful when you take the mug out of the microwave because it will probably be hot.  Let it sit for 1 minute and enjoy!
