Warm & Toasty Gluten-Free Oatmeal Muffin-in-a-Mug

All this talk about truly gluten-free oats might have you dreaming of a warm, moist and delicious muffin. By using quick-cooking oats manufactured according to Purity Protocol, you can enjoy this treat in mere minutes, just about any way you like and in complete safety! So fast and easy, pop it in the microwave while you get ready for work, nibble on it warm as you wait for the bus,  or set it up in advance so that the kids can make it when they get home from school! Use any kind of fruit, jazz it up with chocolate or caramel chips or serve warm with ice cream, maple syrup – or both!
