Keto Muffin For Breakfast

No one wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, right?

I have a big case of spring fever and I’m looking for ways to spend more time outside doing the things I love.

So, I’ve been making more and more quick and easy low-carb recipes.

Did you know it takes less than two minutes to bake a delicious keto friendly microwave muffin in a mug? Yup?

That means you can whip one right up before you leave in the morning and snack on it during the commute.

Ingredients To Make A Keto Muffin In A Mug

All of the exact ingredient amounts are in the printable recipe card just a little further down on this post. First, here is a bit more information about the ingredients I used.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I used a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, an egg, and avocado oil. Then, I added some baking powder and salt for the flavor and leavening (to make it taste more like a muffin).

I prefer how the avocado oil tasted with my muffin, but you can use olive oil or even coconut oil in it instead. Both of them can be swapped in a 1:1 ratio.

Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low carb recipe.

Quick Tips:

  • If you want to make this a vegan recipe, just use a vegan egg replacement. All the other ingredients are plant-based.
  • When you start mixing the ingredients, do it all in the coffee mug or bowl you are going to use. You can even use a small ramekin instead of a coffee mug.
  • Busy mornings? To make things even easier on busy mornings, you can pre-measure the dry ingredients in your coffee mug the night before.
  • Meal prep ahead of time! If you have things ready, when you wake up, just add one egg and a teaspoon of oil and blend well. Pop it in the microwave for a minute and have your instant breakfast muffin. Pretty cool, huh?

Now that I’ve embraced this speedy way to make low-carb baked goods, I’m ready to experiment some more with these tasty little minute microwave muffins in a mug recipes.

I’ve already made a low carb frosted cake, a chocolate brownie, and a blueberry cake. I’m sure there will be more microwave baking in my future, too!

How To Make A Low Carb Muffin In The Microwave

This basic minute microwave muffin in a mug recipe is so easy. I had the recipe memorized after my first try – I know you will too.

Below are some step-by-step pictures to show you how it looks as you make it.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

First, combine the dry ingredients in the microwave-safe mug. Then, add the egg and avocado oil and whisk it together with a fork.

Finally, cook it in the microwave for just one minute.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

That’s it! Honestly. I told you it was easy!

You might have to use a fork to remove the muffin, but you can also just eat it right out of the mug.

What To Serve With A Keto Muffin

This is a very basic recipe and it tastes delicious with other low-carb breakfast or snack foods.

I usually eat one warm with a bit of butter and sugar-free raspberry jam while saving the other one for later.

Even on mornings when I have time to make bacon and eggs, I like to whip up a minute microwave muffin in a mug so I have a little “bread” on the side.

If you like eggs benedict, simply toast one of these minute muffins and use it as the bread.

Frequently Asked Questions About Keto Muffins In A Mug

Before I share the recipe (it’s just a little further below), I am going to answer some questions people have about these mug muffins.

You’ll get two tasty servings from this low-carb microwave muffin in a mug recipe.

Can you toast this low-carb muffin?

The leftover muffin reheats well in the toaster. You can also use a toaster oven or broil it for a minute.

Another thing I like to do with one of the minute microwave muffins is to use it to make a low-carb breakfast sandwich.

Each muffin is rather thick so you can slice it again for thinner halves.

For a breakfast sammie, simply put an egg, cheese, and bacon between the two slices. Presto, a super easy to make bacon, egg, and cheese muffin sandwich!

Recipe Summary

Ingredients

Mix flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt together in a microwave-safe mug. Stir egg white, milk, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into flour mixture until batter is fully combined; slowly stir in blueberries.

Cook in microwave for 1 minute. Check muffin for doneness and continue cooking in 15 second increments until cooked through, about 1 minute more.

Cook’s Notes:

Substitute 3 tablespoons egg white substitute for the egg white if desired. Blackberries or raspberries can be substituted for the blueberries.

Most helpful positive review

The key to this is to cook it until it’s done, but don’t overcook it. I think I overcooked mine because it was a little dry and rubbery, but the blueberries (I used frozen) were plenty juicy which gave it moisture, and all was good in the end. The only thing that I didn’t care for was the whole wheat flour, and I will switch to all purpose white flour (personal preference) in the future. It may not have been pretty, but it was big enough for two of us to split for breakfast, and pretty tasty. Have to wonder if a little streusel topping on this might improve its eye appeal. This certainly has potential, just need to get the timing figured out for your own microwave.

Muffins are pretty much the perfect baked good: they’re quick, versatile and great for breakfast, lunch or a snack. But sometimes we want a muffin without dirtying a bunch of dishes or having a lot of leftovers. Enter microwave mug muffin recipes, which have exploded in popularity in the past few years, in part because you can make a muffin in a mug pretty much anywhere—at work, at the dorm, or even on the road! Even better, no special occasion is needed: a chocolate mug muffin is a tasty treat you can make just for yourself in five minutes or less, just because.

Check out our favorite microwave mug muffin recipes below. For oil, we recommend canola oil, avocado oil, melted coconut or melted butter. Use non-dairy milk if you prefer, and two of these mug muffin recipes can easily be made gluten free.

Blueberry Mug Muffin

This blueberry muffin mug cake is bursting with blueberry goodness! Just look at those blueberries!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I LOVE blueberries in baking (raisins, not so much!), so I already have this blueberry mug cake recipe on the blog. That blueberry recipe is entirely different. It’s paleo, gluten-free, uses almond flour, and has an egg in it. It is SO good and you should totally make it. It’s definitely a healthy mug cake.

This blueberry muffin in a mug is fluffier as it uses all-purpose flour instead of almond flour. There is no egg in this recipe so it’s easily a vegan blueberry mug cake if you use your fave non-dairy milk.

You can also make a vegan (or regular) version of this new 2-minute lemon mug cake – it is SO good and getting rave reviews!

Blueberry Muffin in a Mug: Ingredients

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

It only takes a handful of ingredients to make this blueberry muffin for one:

– regular flour or whole wheat flour, or gluten-free all-purpose flour mix

– sugar (any granulated sugar, white, coconut sugar, erythritol, etc)

– melted butter/vegan butter (I use Earth Balance), or oil

Blueberry Muffin Mug Cake Tips

Let’s talk blueberries! Fresh blueberries are definitely yummier to use in this or any other blueberry recipe. If you only have frozen blueberries, defrost them first before you use them in this recipe. This mug muffin has such a short time to cook in the microwave, it won’t cook well if the blueberries are still frozen. Thaw those babies out!

For the cooking time – this can vary with different microwaves and also with different mug sizes. It took my microwave 2 minutes to cook a perfect blueberry muffin in a mug. The first time you make this mug muffin, watch your microwave. Test doneness, and if it needs a bit more time, add on 15 seconds at a time until it’s fully cooked. The next time you make it, you’ll know exactly how long it takes in your microwave!

You can use a gluten-free all-purpose flour mix (like this one) instead of the regular flour in this mug cake recipe. Coconut flour will not work as a sub in this recipe; I haven’t tried with almond flour. Almond flour might work, but you might need to adjust the microwave time a little. You can also try these almond flour mug cake recipes.

Another microwave mug muffin tip: I like to put the mug on a paper towel or a plate when I’m microwaving it for the first time. This way it catches any drips when I’m still figuring out cooking time for my microwave and the mug I’m using.

You can easily make a vegan mug cake with this recipe. Just use any non-dairy milk you like, oil or vegan butter instead of butter.

I don’t have a huge sweet tooth (except for chocolate lol – I love this healthy chocolate mug cake when I’m craving chocolate!) Sometimes I make this mug muffin with half the sugar and I find it perfectly sweet enough. You can play around with the sugar amount too. You could use half the amount if you’re having this mug muffin for breakfast, and the full amount if it’s a dessert muffin!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Have you ever made a blueberry muffin in a mug? It’s such a fun breakfast or snack that just takes two minutes to cook in your microwave. One of the best muffin recipes on The Typical Mom blog.

Fluffy and just like when you bake them in the oven, you’ve got to try our latest mug cake recipe and let us know what you think! We love this recipe.

  • My youngest daughter came up with muffin in a mug recipe and it was fun experimenting with it. It took a few trial and errors until this blueberry in a mug recipe was born.
  • A perfect little treat she can make all by herself.

What are the health benefits of blueberries?

These little babies are full of great fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.

There is NO cholesterol either and the fiber content helps to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood.

Huge benefit if your levels tend to run a bit high AND you love this tasty fruit. 😉

Does blueberry give you energy?

Well, it’s not like a RedBull or anything. They are a good natural bit of energy since they steadily release sugars into your bloodstream which should give you a longer lasting energy boost in your day!

  • I have yet to try this with frozen berries but I would assume that would be fine too.
  • Of course the texture will be a bit off because they’ll be softer and often times the juice escapes in the freezing process.
  • You could try it though if that’s all you have and give us your feedback below. 😉

Yes these are my all time favorite fruits so we have created a whole roundup of the best blueberry recipes here too. This is just the quickest of them all to make.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

If you’ve never made a mug muffin it’s really quite simple. Just mix the dry ingredients together in your mug, add your wet ingredients, mix the batter and then stir in blueberries.

Microwave on high for a 2 minute cooking time to finish your blueberry mug cake. Very similar to our pancake in a mug.

I haven’t used frozen blueberries but I suppose you could. I would defrost them first though.

Muffin in a mug

  1. A large microwave safe mug – or else it will overflow
  2. All purpose flour
    1. make sure you know how to measure flour properly or it will be dense
    2. I haven’t made this with wheat flour, and unsure it would work since it is much more dense
  3. Brown sugar
  4. Sugar
  5. Baking powder
  6. Butter
  7. Vanilla extract
  8. Milk – 2% or whole is best or it will be a bit dry, almond milk could be used too
  9. Fresh blueberries are best

You could add a bit of crumb topping for muffins on top too.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Why are muffins called muffins?

Said to come from the term German Muffen, the plural of Muffe translates to a small cake in the English language. In a muffin tin, our banana bread muffins are possibly our favorites.

We made a brownie in a mug years ago and soon learned with that that you need a large mug. We had a mess the first time when we didn’t. I linked to a good one above so you can get the idea and use it for this as well as a few others like our:

  • Pizza in a mug recipe
  • Want to make coffee cake in a mug sometime? It is so good!!
  • Next we’re going to try banana bread in a mug
  • Omelette in a mug is gluten free and low carb

What’s nice about this microwave muffin in a mug is that it is egg free and requires no baking which makes it a great easy rv meal.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

What is the most popular muffin?

  • Blueberry is on the top of the list no matter who you ask really. Our 3 ingredient Blueberry cupcakes are a close second.

You can even add some vegetables inside too with our zucchini blueberry muffins.

  • Chocolate chip muffins are widely popular but not always thought of as a breakfast, rather a dessert most times.
  • Apple cinnamon is up there at the third most popular muffin choice out there. Great with fresh diced Fuji if you ask us.
  • Banana muffins are easy using your favorite banana bread recipe, poured into muffin cups rather than loaf style.
  • Strawberry is a popular choice but they’re not always in season.

Chocolate muffins are great, but if you ask me they’re more of a dessert recipe too.

Yes, we still bake our favorite zucchini bread, but when we travel it’s nice to have microwave mug meals on hand. Also, when it’s blazing hot outside during the summertime there is NO way I am turning on my oven.

If you’re looking for other easy treats to make, try these:

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Remember, we are all about easy so the fewer the ingredients the better if you ask me.

  1. 2 ingredient strawberry cake is great! Yes, you only need your favorite cake mix and soda pop for this easy dessert.
  2. Instant Pot blueberry muffins work well too, and fun to make with your kids using an egg mold.
  3. These cherry brownies only use 2 ingredients too. I have made them for potlucks and people go crazy over them. They can’t believe how easy they are!
  4. Our chocolate chip cookie in a mug is one people go crazy over, seen above. I bet you will too!

MICROWAVE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS RECIPE – FOOD.COM

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Hard to believe, but you can microwave these muffins in just 2 minutes. I know, I know, I didn’t believe it either, and I’ve been baking semi-professionally for 15 years. Great solutions for midsummer baking, and children can bake their own! The batter recipe is from the Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen. I usually substitute whole wheat flour and a little flax seed meal for a portion of the white flour. The yield was supposedly 12, but I’ve never gotten more than 8 or 10 muffins from it.

Total Time 12 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 2 minutes

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk or 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup fresh blueberries or 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Melt the honey and butter together. Stir in the milk, egg and lemon juice. Combine the wet ingredient and the dry ingredients and mix a little. Add the blueberries and mix gently until no white streaks of flour remain.
  • Coat a plastic muffin tin or 6 1-cup Pyrex custard cups with nonstick cooking spray. Fill cups half full of batter. Microwave five or six at a time for about 2 1/2 minutes for an 1100-watt microwave. (Start checking at about 2 minutes.) When they look set, they’re done. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes to firm up. Turn out of tins/cups.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

NEW! See how to easily make poached eggs in the microwave in seconds!

I love eggs. They are such a simple thing to make in so many ways — even in the microwave. Did you know you could make fluffy scrambled eggs right in the microwave?

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I’m currently nursing a toddler who is deathly allergic to eggs. She’s so allergic to eggs we have to keep an Epi-Pen nearby at all times. Unfortunately, if I eat eggs, she still has a reaction to them. So, until she weans, it’s no eggs for me.

Sometimes I dream of making a quick batch of eggs in the morning. As soon as she weans, I’m probably going to eat a plateful of eggs. I can’t wait!

How do you make Scrambled Eggs in a Mug?

One thing you can make in a mug in a microwave in less than 2 minutes is some delicious scrambled eggs. You can even add a few ingredients and make them taste just like a cheesy or a veggie omelet in no time.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I like my eggs totally plain with a little bit of salt, or sometimes I like them mixed with cheese. But, my husband and my teenagers love omelets chock full of veggies, meat, and cheese. When they are in a rush, I will make them scrambled eggs in a mug with the ingredients I usually put in a omelet. It’s fast to fix and easy for them to take it with them.

If I have frozen chopped veggies, I will quickly add some onions and/or bell peppers. I also add a shake or two of some dried herbs like parsley or cilantro. If we’re out of vegetables, I just toss in some cheddar cheese and salt and pepper. Once it’s ready, they can easily eat it while they’re getting dressed or sometimes in the car if we’re really in a hurry.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

What can you add to Scrambled Eggs in a Mug?

You can add all kinds of things to eggs. Making scrambled eggs in a mug is a great way to use up leftovers like rotisserie chicken or ham or even bacon bits. Just shredd it and mix it up into the eggs.

If you keep a bag of frozen veggies, they are also great to mix in. Or, if you have chunky salsa in the fridge, that’s a great addition, too. It adds a little kick to your breakfast. You can even heat up a tortilla and fill it with the cooked scrambled eggs from your mug – that’s a great way to take it on the go so you don’t have to carry the mug with you.

Have you ever made a muffin in a mug? Get ready to have your mind blown.

Muffins are generally considered to be healthy, but did you know that many store-bought muffins can have just as much sugar, fat, and calories as cake? If you are looking for a healthier alternative, that can be made in under 5 minutes, a mug muffin is a perfect solution!

Store-Bought Mug Muffin
11g fat
2g fibre
25g sugar
5g protein
340 calories
7g fat
2g fibre
10g sugar
10g protein
250 calories

Not only do mug muffins have less sugar, fat, and calories than most store-bought muffins, they also have more protein (10g!). Such a great choice for breakfast or an afternoon snack. You can even make them ahead of time and store in the fridge or freezer.

Are you ready to make a mug muffin?

Check out our guide below with onl y 4 easy steps!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

All you need is the ingredients, a mug, and a microwave, and it will be ready in a flash (or 2 to 3 minutes).

1. Mix the Base:

Our base recipe is the building blocks for our muffin. Banana can also be swapped with apple sauce, and the maple syrup or honey is optional! The protein comes from the whole egg :).

2. Add Fruit:

Choose a fruit add-in to increase the sweetness in your muffin. We love adding dried cranberries.

3. And Veggies:

Vegetables in a muffin? Yes. Yes indeed. Adding a veggie into your muffin helps keep it moist and is not that out of the ordinary (think carrot cake, pumpkin, or zucchini bread!).

4. Pump up the Flavour:

We are definitely fans of adding more flavour. Spices are a great way to customize your muffin, or add in some cocoa powder for a chocolate twist.

Note: this recipe only works in a microwave. Since there is no added oil to this recipe, if you bake it in the oven, it will become dry.

How Many Points in WW Oatmeal?

The first thing I tried was the Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal Cups. Since it is a limited edition it made sense to me to give it a try.

According to the WW App, each cup of WW Instant Oatmeal (affiliate link) (Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Orange, Maple Brown Sugar, Pumpkin Spice) has 3 SmartPoints (green, blue purple.)

Yesterday I made it the traditional way, stirring in ⅓ cup of boiling water and then letting it sit for a few minutes to thicken up. I thought it was pretty good, but the portion seemed a bit skimpy.

I bulked it up with a chopped microwaved apple to which I added some sweetener and pinch of cinnamon. The combination kept me satisfied for hours which was a nice surprise.

Today I decided to experiment with turning the oatmeal into a “muffin” by adding an egg, unsweetened applesauce, sweetener, baking powder, and cinnamon, which I microwaved until set.

As a lover of baked oatmeal I was pleasantly surprised with the result. It made me much happier than yesterday’s oatmeal. It’s definitely a do-over and I look forward to experimenting with different oatmeal flavors and seasonings.

MICROWAVE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS RECIPE – FOOD.COM

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Hard to believe, but you can microwave these muffins in just 2 minutes. I know, I know, I didn’t believe it either, and I’ve been baking semi-professionally for 15 years. Great solutions for midsummer baking, and children can bake their own! The batter recipe is from the Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen. I usually substitute whole wheat flour and a little flax seed meal for a portion of the white flour. The yield was supposedly 12, but I’ve never gotten more than 8 or 10 muffins from it.

Total Time 12 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 2 minutes

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk or 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup fresh blueberries or 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Melt the honey and butter together. Stir in the milk, egg and lemon juice. Combine the wet ingredient and the dry ingredients and mix a little. Add the blueberries and mix gently until no white streaks of flour remain.
  • Coat a plastic muffin tin or 6 1-cup Pyrex custard cups with nonstick cooking spray. Fill cups half full of batter. Microwave five or six at a time for about 2 1/2 minutes for an 1100-watt microwave. (Start checking at about 2 minutes.) When they look set, they’re done. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes to firm up. Turn out of tins/cups.

Home | Baking | Healthy Pumpkin Mug Muffin (Single Serve)

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Being a food blogger I am usually thinking about the next season way before it actually happens. So I will proudly say that we have been inhaling these Healthy Pumpkin Mug Muffin (Single Serve) at our house since July. That’s right, pumpkin muffins in July. My toddler spent a good two weeks waking up and the first thing out of his mouth would be asking for a ‘Stud Muffin’! Let me translate that for you, my toddler loves these mug muffins so much they were his first thought when he woke up in the morning, me too kid me too.

So in usual Schmidty Wife fashion, I set out to make these single serve pumpkin mug muffins a little healthier for my family.

The Ingredients

Let’s start with pumpkin, the star ingredient, the star of fall for that matter! I tried to make this as pumpkin heavy as I could without weighing the muffin down. Besides having the perfect texture for baked goods did you know that pumpkin contains the antioxidant beta-carotene, plenty of potassium, and are high in fiber! Talk about some great health benefits!

Next whole wheat flour. To keep this healthy I choose to skip the white flour that is stripped of a lot of healthy goodness and use whole wheat four. Whole wheat flour holds a lot more nutritional value than white flour, for example whole wheat flour naturally contains dietary fiber. According to studies getting your daily dose of fiber can help lower cholesterol and help you lose weight! Plus whole wheat flour is packed with vitamins that have been taken out of white all-purpose flour.

For the sweetener I chose maple syrup, I think the flavor of maple syrup is the perfect accompaniment to pumpkin, plus it makes these muffins refined sugar free. How sweet is that? 😉

Of course any pumpkin baked good isn’t complete without pumpkin pie spice or pumpkin spice, whichever way you prefer to call it. Traditionally made with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, and allspice there can be all sorts of variations so choose your favorite! Or if you don’t happen to have pumpkin spice handy you can use cinnamon with a dash of nutmeg.

Mix these delicious ingredients with coconut oil, milk, an egg, and baking powder and you get a perfect muffin.

The Microwave

Now on to the best part of this muffin, THE MICROWAVE! What’s better than a healthy pumpkin muffin? One you can make in the microwave in less than 2 minutes.

So call it overkill but I used all different shapes of mugs to test this muffin out. The result? It didn’t really matter but due to the size of this muffin (it’s a little on the bigger side) a larger/oversized mug works best.

Different microwaves = slightly different cooking times. Microwaves can be so finicky as far as they can all have different amounts of power so each cook times might differ slightly. You’ll want to start with 60 seconds and then if the muffin is still wet/soggy microwave anther 15-30 seconds until it is no longer wet.

As you remove the mug from the microwave the mug will be very hot, as well as the muffin so make sure you give it a chance to cool before digging in!

TIPS & TRICKS:

• This Healthy Pumpkin Mug Muffin (Single Serve) can of course be baked in the oven if you wish! I tested it in an oven safe ramekin at 350º F for 18-20 minutes. If you choose this method ensure that you are using an oven safe container. (Also when I made this in the oven I noticed that it tastes more like cake so… a good late night, the kids are in bed treat)

• I can imagine adding a few chocolate chips would make this extra delicious!

• If your coconut oil starts to harden because of cold milk or eggs don’t fret, continue to mix it well, your muffin will still turn out delicious

Cornbread is the perfect accompaniment to many meals:

  • Chili
  • Soups and stews
  • Smoked meats

But making homemade cornbread is time-consuming. It takes about 25 to 30 minutes to bake cornbread, on average.

If you want homemade cornbread in less time, consider making it in the microwave.

Yes, it’s still good. Especially with honey butter.

This recipe makes enough for 2 people. Grab your biggest microwave-safe mug – this makes a big cake!

Is Microwave Cornbread As Good As Baked Cornbread?

I know what you’re thinking: Is it good? Should I just make homemade cornbread instead?

Here’s the deal: I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of microwave cornbread. The texture was about 90% there – it’s very slightly grainier than traditional cornbread. But still delicious.

If you’re entertaining guests, or if you have the time and energy to make cornbread from scratch, by all means go the traditional route.

But for a weeknight meal, or when a last-minute craving for cornbread hits (hello chili!), this cornbread will totally satisfy.

Banana bread is one of the first things I made when the pandemic started and I began self-isolating. It turns out that many of us are baking more than ever, and this quick bread is an easy way use up ripe bananas with ingredients already on hand. Leave it to social media to give us another trending recipe for banana bread, but this time in a mug. TikTok videos like this one from @becka.crowe show how to easily make a personal serving of banana bread with simple ingredients and a few minutes of cooking time in the microwave. After trying trendy recipes like whipped coffee and 3-ingredient crème brûlée, I knew I had to try this recipe next. Here’s how it turned out and how you can make it, too.

How to Make 5-Ingredient Banana Bread in a Mug

For the flour, you can use all-purpose or a gluten-free flour mix, which is what I used. The TikTok video also had a tip to use 2 Tbsp. of almond flour plus 1 Tbsp. tapioca starch for a gluten-free option.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. milk or dairy-free milk alternative
  • 1 tsp. oil
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional)
  • Chocolate chips (optional)

Method

  1. Mash banana in a medium to large microwave-safe mug with a fork.
  2. Add the egg and mix well using your fork.
  3. Add milk, oil, and flour and combine.
  4. Add a dash of cinnamon and a teaspoon or two of chocolate chips, if desired. (I recommend both!)
  5. Microwave 2 to 3 minutes or until the batter in the center is no longer runny. Since this recipe requires an egg, the internal temperature should be 160°F. Let it stand for a minute before enjoying.

Like the 5-minute chocolate cake recipe I recently tried, I think this banana bread is a little bland as is, but I definitely enjoyed it with the addition of chocolate chips and cinnamon. Since there is no added sugar in this recipe, you’ll definitely want to use a (very) ripe banana to bring in the sweetness. You could also add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar or brown sugar and a pinch of salt to really make it a sweet treat since you likely have these ingredients in your cupboard anyway. The texture is spongy, yet dense, which is a bit expected from “baking” in the microwave. The video recipe also doesn’t use any leavening agents, so to get a better rise, you could add some baking powder and soda (⅛ tsp. each) to the recipe as this blogger did. As far as microwaving “baked” goods go, I think this chocolate mug cake one is the best I’ve tried so far.

I’d personally rather bake up a loaf of banana bread from scratch (because I find the process of baking therapeutic), but this is definitely an easy way to enjoy a quick breakfast. It’s also beneficial if you’re cooking for one and don’t want the temptation of eating an entire loaf. Then again, you could always freeze it and save it for your next sweet tooth craving.

Make yourself a heart, healthy, homemade muffin in well under 5 minute! My 2-ingredient flax mug muffin is delicious and filling, as well as vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and oil-free.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

A Newfangled Healthy Muffin Made in the Microwave

I have developed many muffin recipes. 750 in one book. 150 vegan versions in another.

Apparently, that’s only the beginning.

Witness this 2-minute muffin for one.

2-minute Flax Mug Muffin Benefits

This humble muffin is:

  • Flourless
  • Gluten-free
  • Oil-free
  • vegan (egg-free, dairy-free)
  • Sugar-free
  • High in fiber
  • Made with 100% flax
  • Super-easy

It is also remarkably satisfying in taste, texture and overall deliciousness.

Make it in 2 Minutes

I am typically ravenous when I return from teaching my early morning exercise classes, a state that is amplified further because I spend another 45 minutes showering, dressing, getting everyone ready to go, and swilling my first cup of coffee of the day (ok, coffee often comes first in this list).

Once this list is ticked off, I need serious food, and this muffin delivers.

And the wonderful news is that this muffin takes all of 2 minutes to make!

This makes a huge and hearty muffin, akin to the jumbo muffins in the coffee store case.

In contrast to the coffee shop varieties, though, these are absent the heaps of refined sugar, refined flour, and fat.

Honestly, one half of a muffin (slathered with some plum jam) left me happily full, and that is a rarity virtually unheard of for me; I saved the second half for my second breakfast (yes, I eat a second breakfast around 10:30). It was equally awesome after several hours.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Sweetened without Sugar

I’ve sweetened the muffins with liquid stevia, but you can use the sweetener of your choice (about 1-2 tablespoons of liquid sweetener, like honey or maple syrup, or natural cane sugar, or even a mix of stevia and your favorite natural sugar).

You can always make the muffin sweeter post-cooking by spreading with a bit of jam, or drizzling with honey.

Vary the Muffin with Add-Ins

The add-in options for this muffin are vast.

I added some raisins, cinnamon and chia seeds–or leave them out.

Lemon zest, orange zest, or almond extract would be great subs for the vanilla, and, as you can imagine, a tablespoon of chocolate chips is a brilliant choice (I suggest mini chips, or giving regular-size chips a chop for even distribution).

You know you want one, and given that it takes 30 seconds to mix and 1 and 1/2 minutes to make, I think now is the perfect time!

Although you could make the muffins from start to finish quickly right when you need them, here’s the most efficient way: Whisk together the dry ingredients the night before and put them in a covered bowl on the countertop. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, molasses, and oil until smooth and then refrigerate, tightly covered. Next morning, grease the mugs, then whisk together the dry and wet ingredients, and divide the batter evenly among the mugs. Cook in the microwave, and in a minute you will have fresh, hot, über-healthy muffins. Eat them immediately right out of the mug! Easy!

  • 1 cup ground flax meal
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses (not blackstrap)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

1. Grease 4 shallow, microwave-safe coffee mugs (the size of the mugs will determine how high the muffins will rise and how quickly they will cook). In a small bowl, whisk together the flax meal, walnuts, baking powder, apple pie spice, and salt until well blended. Add the egg, molasses, and oil, and whisk until thoroughly blended. The batter will be droopy-soft. Divide the batter among the mugs. Place the mugs on saucers or plates to catch any drips.

2. Microwave on High power for 60 to 70 seconds. The muffins will rise up and possibly fall over the side of the mug (depending on the mug size). The muffins are done when they are no longer shiny; cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave oven. (They won’t brown like muffins baked in a regular oven.) Remove from the microwave and cool slightly before eating right out of the mug. Or run a sharp knife around the edge to loosen and remove the muffin from the mug. Serve immediately.

The possibilities are endless, and finished taste and texture will vary depending on your modifications, but this allows you to tailor this muffin recipe to suit your needs.

On a recent trip to the grocery store I saw a “minute muffin” – a single serving muffin mix in a cup. All you have to do is add water and microwave for a minute and you have a surprisingly soft, tasty breakfast. The only problem was the price – way more for one muffin than I want to pay – however convenient. So over the past few weeks I’ve been working out my own minute muffin recipe, with the help of my kids as taste testers.

We’ve been trying to switch to whole wheat as much as possible, so I made this a whole wheat muffin, and my kids love it, even though they aren’t huge fans of whole wheat bread. The muffin comes out of the microwave very soft and tender, sweetened with a little brown sugar and spiced with cinnamon.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I mix up the dry ingredients and keep them in a container in the fridge. All my older kids are able to measure and mix in the wet ingredients on their own, making this a favorite snack for any time of day. The muffin is quite tasty by itself, but super delicious with a bit of butter and honey on top.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

The muffin is fairly large, making it a pretty good breakfast all on it’s own. Each muffin is about 260 calories, which is a bit more than they’d get from a bowl of cereal, but there are no preservatives or chemicals and each muffin has almost 10 grams of protein, making them quite filling. If you’re concerned about calories, you could try using splenda instead of brown sugar to save about 50 per muffin.

Start to finish you can have a warm, tasty muffin in just a few minutes. Here’s how it works:

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Start by putting 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a mug (just use the markings on the butter wrapper to cut 1 tablespoon, then cut that in half). Microwave 15 seconds to melt. Measure in 1/3 cup dry mix and 1/4 cup milk (we use nonfat). Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and half of a beaten egg. Whisk to combine, then microwave about 90 seconds.

Now, to minimize the amount of dishes this creates, I just use a 1/3 C measuring cup for everything – I use it to measure the dry mix, then fill it not quite full to measure the milk, then crack an egg in it and use a fork to lightly beat, then tip half the egg into the mug and use the same fork to mix everything together. I also rarely actually measure the vanilla – just tip a few drops in. This means you can make the muffin using one mug, one measuring cup, and one fork – not bad!

In our microwave the muffin takes exactly 90 seconds. The consistency is quite airy – a little more so than a traditional muffin – so it’s almost a cross between a muffin and a bread. You may have to experiment with the time to see what works best in your microwave – if the muffin seems dry, try cutting 10 seconds off the time, and if any part is wet, add a few.

This single serving keto English muffin is so easy to whip up and cooks in just 90 seconds in the microwave. It only takes 4 ingredients to make. It is a great low-carb substitute for English muffins.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I love quick and easy breads I can make in the microwave, especially when I need just one for a meal. This low-carb English muffin comes together in just a few minutes and takes less than two minutes to cook.

When it first comes out of the microwave, it is soft and bread-like but a little plain. But once you toast it, it makes such a difference! It really satisfied my craving for an English muffin.

Ingredients

  • Butter – if you use unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt to the batter.
  • Almond Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Egg

Almond Flour and Substitute

Make sure to use superfine blanched almond flour. Regular almond meal or flour will not yield the same result. If you are looking for a nut-free version or want to use coconut flour instead, please check out my low-carb paleo English muffin recipe which uses coconut flour.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Recipe Steps

Place the butter in a 4”-wide ramekin. Melt it in the microwave for a few seconds and then swirl it around so it evenly coats the bottom of the ramekin.

Place the rest of the ingredients in the ramekin and use a small whisk to mix them until everything is well combined.

Cook the dough in the microwave for approximately 90 seconds at full power. My microwave is 1100 watts. Cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave.

The muffin should pull away from the sides of the ramekin when it is done.

Let it cool before removing. It helps to run a spatula around the edge of the ramekin to loosen the muffin before you remove it.

If you want to make your muffin look even more like a regular English muffin, you can dust the top and bottom with toasted almond flour (which I did in the photos). This is optional.

Slice muffin in half for serving.

Toasting

While this bread can be eaten right after it’s done cooking, I highly recommend that you toast it similar to how English muffins are usually served toasted.

The bread can be warmed in a nonstick skillet until both sides are lightly browned and toasted. If you are using a skillet that is not nonstick, be sure to grease it.

Toasting the bread really transforms the taste and makes it feel more like an English muffin.

Can you freeze them? If you want to make a few ahead of time, you can and they will freeze well. You can make as many as you want, but you should only cook them one at a time in the microwave. Cool them completely, wrap them tightly, and store them in a freezer bag. They will keep in the freezer for a few months. Thaw them before toasting.

How can they be used? I like the toasted with butter, but you can also use them to make keto breakfast sandwiches or regular sandwiches with your favorite meat and cheese. You can also use them to make avocado toast except instead of bread, you use the English muffin.

What other keto bread recipes can you make? There are a lot of ways to make low-carb bread that is keto-friendly. I have a post with all of my favorite keto bread recipes you might like to check out. Or check out the links at the end of this post for more microwave bread recipes.

Can you buy keto English muffins? You can buy them and there are lots of brands. I’ve seen them at Walmart and other regular grocery stores. You can also order them on Amazon. I don’t buy them because these microwave ones are so easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand.

This blueberry mug muffin is so easy to make. It’s just 5 ingredients and doesn’t contain wheat flour, butter, oil, refined sugar or eggs. The batter comes together in less than 5 minutes and it cooks in the microwave in less than 2 minutes. The muffin comes out fluffy and light.
How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

I have been trying to create healthier mug cake recipes recently like this blueberry muffin. This muffin is soft and fluffy and studded with fresh blueberries. It’s not too sweet so it can be enjoyed for breakfast or a snack.

Ingredients

  • Oat Flour (or make your own by blending rolled oats)
  • Baking powder
  • Milk
  • Pure Maple Syrup
  • Blueberries

Oat Flour: Instead of white flour, this mug cake is made with oat flour. I have really enjoyed using oat flour in recipes. Oats are very nutritious and can be a great gluten-free flour substitute (just make sure you use gluten-free packaged oat flour or process your own to make sure there is no contamination if you need the recipe to be gluten-free). The muffin still comes out very soft and light. You can buy oat flour or you can make your own. To make your own, put rolled oats in a blender or food processor and blend until the oats become the consistency of fine flour.

Milk: Milk can be substituted with milk substitutes like almond milk, oat milk, soy milk.

Maple Syrup: To keep this refined sugar free, I sweetened the muffin with a little bit of maple syrup. You can also use honey. You can substitute with regular sugar or sugar free sugar substitutes, but you will need to add another tbsp of milk to make sure there is enough liquid for the batter. The muffin batter needs 4 tbsp of liquid total or it will be too dry, so if you remove or reduce the amount of syrup you use, you will need to make up for that in milk.

Microwave Muffin

This muffin is designed to be ideally cooked in the microwave. You can try baking it if you don’t own a microwave.

I mixed all the ingredients in a mug. It can be eaten straight out of the mug with a spoon. You can also remove the entire muffin from the mug and enjoy it like a regular muffin. Instead of a mug, you can also cook it in a ramekin.

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Every so often for a special occasion like Mother’s Day or her birthday, my family treated my grandmother to brunch at Mimi’s Cafe, one of her favorite breakfast spots. We picked her up from her house across town before driving a few freeway exits to the neighboring city where the restaurant sat at the edge of the movie theater parking lot.

Since my family’s stomachs growl rather loudly before our first meal of the day, we avoid lines and long waits as much as possible. We strategically planned to arrive at “off” hours to beat the crowds (or even stopped by the morning before Mother’s Day instead!), and the hostess led us to a table almost as soon as we walked up to her stand.

After glancing through the menu, we always admired the fun French-inspired décor. Paintings of baguettes and croissants filled the walls, striped awnings hung over a few cozy booths, and a petite bistro-style table and chairs even sat on a tiny little decorative balcony up near the ceiling in one room. We usually mentioned how much we wanted to go back to France at least three times by the end of each meal!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

When the waiter stopped by to take our order, we typically ordered the same things over and over. Mom selected the French toast with a huge mug of their hot chocolate topped with whipped cream; my brother requested the same, although sometimes switched to waffles instead; I originally opted for something similar to my brother, although I switched to scrambled egg whites or an omelet in high school; and Dad ordered the most interesting egg dish he could find on the menu, often one of the daily specials that came with a jumbo muffin on the side.

As a generous man, Dad always offered to share some of his muffin with everyone at the table, and I usually tried to snag the seat next to him so I could easily sneak an extra bite or two. He typically chose the honey bran, an incredibly moist muffin with a slightly heartier texture. Yet every so often, Dad ordered the blueberry muffin instead, and that one tasted just like a decadent cupcake—probably because of the ample amounts of butter and sour cream hiding inside that gave it such a tender crumb!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

After watching Zootopia at the theater last month and spotting Mimi’s Cafe across the parking lot, I started craving those bran and blueberry muffins. Although tempted to walk over and ask the hostess for one to go, I headed home and made this Skinny Single-Serving Blueberry Muffin instead—a much healthier choice! It’s so simple, ready in just 10 minutes, and packed with over 5g of protein!

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

A few of the ingredients may be slightly unfamiliar, so let’s go over those briefly! This clean eating recipe starts with white whole wheat flour . White whole wheat flour is made by finely grinding a special type of white wheat, whereas regular whole wheat flour comes from heartier red wheat. This gives white whole wheat flour a lighter taste and texture, similar to that of all-purpose flour, but it still has the same benefits as regular whole wheat flour.

Note: Whole wheat pastry flour would be a perfect substitute!

You’ll sweeten the mug cake with one of my new favorite ingredients: vanilla crème stevia . Stevia is a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener that’s clean eating friendly, and it’s very concentrated. A little goes a long way! You’ll need just 18 drops for this muffin-in-a-mug. This is the brand that I buy, and you can find it at many health-oriented grocery stores, as well as online. (And you’ll use it in all of these recipes of mine, too!)

How to make a microwave muffin in a mug

Whereas traditional recipes for mug cakes and muffins typically call for 2 tablespoons of butter and an egg (oh my goodness, my waistline is cringing at all of those calories!), this healthy one is the exact opposite! It includes no egg and a mere ¼ teaspoon of butter . And it still has the same tender texture!

You’ll use Greek yogurt to give this mug muffin that tender texture instead! Greek yogurt provides the same moisture as extra butter for a fraction of the calories, and it gives this muffin a big protein boost too.

Now here’s my final trick to perfectly a tender mug muffin (and cake!) … You’ll microwave it on 30% power for a longer period of time, instead of 1 minute on high like traditional recipes. The lower power better simulates baking in a regular oven, and it prevents the mug muffin or cake from turning out tough or rubbery. I use this trick for all of my microwave mug recipes, and it gives them that perfect tender texture every time!
