Microwave Snacks You Can Cook In A Mug

Blueberry Flax Microwave Muffin
Made in a coffee cup or shallow bowl, these babies are delicious, nutritious, and so fast you will be amazed. Enjoy!

  1. 1 ounce frozen blueberries
  2. 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 2 Tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup
  5. 1/2 tsp orange zest
  6. 1 egg white
  7. 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Mix dry ingredients together thoroughly (I use a large measuring cup and just add other ingredients to the flax once I have measured it) and then add egg, syrup & zest. Pour into over sized coffee cup that you have sprayed (I use organic coconut oil spray) and put in microwave for 90 seconds. This will make a tall muffin. If you prefer a flatter muffin (more like a muffin top) use a small, shallow cereal bowl. Top with a little more sugar free pancake syrup if desired, and butter if you can spare the calories. For a really decadent version put a tablespoon of melted butter into the batter before cooking.
Coffee Cup Coffeecake
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1 pinch plus 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 pinch salt, optional
  • 1/2 egg (from 1 egg lightly beaten and divided)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract (a few drops)
  • 1/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon apricot or other preserves
1. To make the topping, combine 2 tablespoons brown sugar, all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon butter, a pinch of cinnamon and salt in a small bowl; mix together with your fingers. Pinch together until crumbs form.
2. To make the batter, mix the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar together in a large measuring cup until creamy; add egg, sour cream, syrup and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Add self-rising flour and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; beat until smooth.
3. Pour half of the batter into a buttered 12-ounce microwavable coffee cup, drop preserves into the centre, then top with remaining batter. Sprinkle with crumb topping. 4. Microwave on high until done, about 1 minute 15 seconds.
