Low Carb Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Mug Cake

I have plenty of desserts right now. Making another batch of something would be overkill. I thought it would be good to do a single serving recipe. When you want something quick. I searched high and low for a recipe. Something besides the same brownie in a mug or yellow or chocolate cake in a mug. I found several recipes for a doughnut made in a mug. Making a doughnut in a mug never crossed my mind. What I decided to do was look at these recipes and make my own low carb version. Full disclosure, I have not had a doughnut in YEARS. There are two reasons, going gluten free and the fact that doughnuts are a calorie bomb and about as filling as a glass of water. Not to mention a sugar crash. I slapped a label on them as not worth it. However, making one in a mug that is more nutritious IS worth it. This mug doughnut will be in my favorite flavor, cinnamon and sugar. Glazed doughnuts are good, but cinnamon and sugar is what I like the best. Feel free to make this doughnut in your favorite flavor. Now, on to the recipe. Here are the stats:

Here is the final recipe:
