Apple cubed and sautéed in 1 tsp coconut oil and cinnamon

1 tbsp nut butter
1/8 tsp baking powder
optional: flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds
Stir half the apple with the rest of the ingredients in a mug and microwave for ~90 seconds. Top with the remaining cinnamon apples and any other toppings desired. Enjoy!
