From the Chocolate Covered Katie Blog:
Ingredients for the batter:
3 T spelt flour (or white. For gf: a commenter had success with 1 tbsp rice flour and 2 tbsp almond flour.)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/16 tsp. salt
1 stevia packet or 1 T sugar
1 T plus 2 tsp. water
2 tsp oil or melted margarine or applesauce (I prefer the oil/margarine, but that’s simply because I’m not a fan of fat-free baked goods.)
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Ingredients for the streusel:
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 and 1/4 tsp sucanat or brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp oil or melted margarine (once again, use applesauce if a fat-free version is desired)
tiny, tiny pinch salt
2 pecan halves (or walnut halves)
Combine dry batter ingredients and mix well. Add wet and mix until just mixed. In a tiny bowl, combine all streusel ingredients. Pour half the batter into a mug or mini ramekin, sprinkle on two-thirds of the streusel, then spoon the remaining batter on top. Finally, sprinkle on the rest of the streusel. Microwave for about 1 minute.
