It doesn't have to be blueberry season to enjoy this recipe. This mug muffin can be made with frozen or fresh blueberries! There's an extra delicious blueberry flavor added from Lifeway's Blueberry Maple Oat. It's made with organic oats and is plant based, gluten-free and dairy free! Your gut will love its vegan probiotic cultures, too!
I love making single serve treats in mugs! I have too many mugs in my cupboard but they're all special to me, so I'm always excited to use more of them! In the mornings, I can have my coffee in one hand and my muffin in the other. If you're also a fan of mug cakes, check out my Fudgy Mug Brownie!
- Whole wheat flour
- Baking powder
- Fresh or frozen blueberries
- Coconut oil
- Lifeway Blueberry Maple Oat
- Vanilla extract
- Demerara sugar (turbinado sugar) - optional
See recipe card below for quantities.
All you need to make this recipe is a mug, measuring spoons and a fork or spoon to mix and eat it with! This muffin works best in a 14-16 ounce mug. One as small as 10 ounces will work (such as the mug pictured), but it may overflow in the microwave.
Step by Step Instructions
STEP ONE (Picture 1 above) - In a coffee mug, melt the coconut oil and then stir in the honey, vanilla extract and Lifeway Blueberry Maple Oat.
STEP TWO (Picture 2 above) - Stir in the whole wheat flour, baking powder and tiny pinch of salt. The batter will be slightly thick. Gently stir in the blueberries.
STEP THREE (Picture 3 above) - Sprinkle a little demerara sugar on top and then microwave it for about a minute and a half.
TIP: This muffin will be very hot when you take it out of the microwave. Let it cool for a bit before digging in!
Substitutions & Variations
The whole wheat flour can be substituted in a 1:1 ratio by regular all purpose flour.
The honey can be replaced by pure maple syrup.
Feel free to use a different kind of berry! You could use raspberries, blackberries or chop up some strawberries, etc.
