2teaspoonsTruvia Baking Blend
Pinch of salt
¼cuplow-fat cottage cheese
3tablespoonsplain non-fat Greek yogurt
2teaspoonsreduced sugar raspberry jam
Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
Add the flour, Truvia, salt, cottage cheese, yogurt, egg and vanilla to the mug. Mix with a fork until thoroughly combined.
Place mug in microwave and heat on High power for 75 seconds. Blintz is ready when slightly puffed and set in the center. If blintz isn't ready, continue to cook on High in 30 second increments until done. (Cooking times will vary based on strength microwave used.)
When done, remove mug from microwave and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Top with raspberry jam and enjoy right from the mug.
Lightly dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
To measure the egg, whisk one large egg in small dish. Measure 2 tablespoons and add to the mug. Store the remaining egg in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Alternatively, use one small egg in place of the measured 2 tablespoons.
If you don't have or don't like cottage cheese, try substituting the same amount of light ricotta cheese.
Use your favorite low-sugar jelly, jam, preserves or marmalade in place of the raspberry.
Make this ahead: Add the flour, sweetener and salt to the mug and cover. (It's ok to leave the covered mug at room temperature.) Add the cottage cheese, yogurt, egg and vanilla to a small airtight container and refrigerate until ready.
Make this gluten-free by substituting the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten-free flour (all-purpose, almond, oat, etc.)
