- 1 tablespoon granulated erythritol (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Start by melting the unsalted butter in a microwave-safe mug for about 20-30 seconds until it’s fully melted.

- Crack the egg into the mug and stir it into the mixture until everything is well combined.
- Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for 90 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave’s power. Keep an eye on it to prevent overflow.
