Strawberry Crisp in a Mug

I absolutely love strawberries! I'm really lucky because I am the only one under my roof that likes them. Crazy, right? I'm not going to complain, though, because that means I get to eat them all myself! This recipe I came up with is perfect for my situation because it makes a serving for one person.
It takes only a few minutes to prepare, so anytime I have a craving for something warm and delicious using one of my favorite fruits, I know what to make! With a spoonful of ice cream or whipped cream, this makes a tasty dessert. However, I couldn't resist making this for my breakfast this morning. Why not? Oatmeal and strawberries are healthy ingredients!
Strawberry Crisp in a Mug
Stir together, pour into a microwave safe mug or ramekin, and set aside:
1 cup chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Tb sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp ginger powder
dash of cinnamon

Mix together and pour into mug on top of strawberry mixture:
1/3 cup gluten free oats
2 Tb almond flour
1 Tb sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tb oil or melted butter
Microwave for approximately 2 minutes or until strawberry mixture gets nice and bubbly. Let cool for several minutes to help the juices set up (and avoid burning your mouth!). You may want to set your mug on a plate or saucer while microwaving to catch any juices that may bubble over. Using a mug with taller sides also helps. If you are apposed to using a microwave, I'm sure this can be used with a toaster oven as well. Feel free to modify to your personal preferences.
