Berrylicious Microwave Minute Muffin


Take a little less than a quarter cup of quick oats, 1 egg, a small handful of blueberries, and some brown sugar or Stevia if you like things sweet, and mix it all up in a coffee mug. If you want your muffin a little moist a tablespoon of plain soymilk or almond milk will do it.

Then place in the microwave for 1 min. Watch it carefully! This could overflow!

If the muffin top does not look firm, place back in 30 sec at a time.

Once ready, flip mug upside down onto a plate and slice some fresh strawberries to decorate.

Super yummy! I served this to my sister and she was so impressed with my quick healthy cooking skills. Try it! Let me know what ingredients you end up using! There’s a lot of room for creativity.

    this muffin is amaaazing :D luv iit soooo much. I used 25g of Oats, 1/2 banana, one egg, 50g of blueberries, 1 tsp of baking powder and a lil bit of sparkling mineral water, so it´s getting reaaally fluffy <3 yumyumyum

  • Darlene5180

    Love it!!! I added strawberries, cinnamon, brown sugar as my sweetener, a small amount of a banana, vanilla extract and baking soda for it to rise… It is awesome!

  • Taryn

    So I made this this morning and it was super yummy. I used raspberries instead of blueberries. But I was wondering how this came out to over 300 calories? By my calculations it was only about 180. Did I miss something?

  • rei

    I made it but I didn’t put any sweetener. I substitute it with a mashed banana. Oh man…..So good!

  • Annie

    I made it today and it was YUMMY! I altered Cassey’s recipe a little. Instead of an egg, I used a little over than half a banana. For a sweetener, I used about 3 teaspoons of cocoa powder, and I added a dash of baking soda for it to rise. The end result: AWESOME :)

    • Darlene5180

      Thank you for the baking soda idea.. It worked ! :)

  • Eni

    before today, i had very little luck with this recipe. i’d tried it 3 times–once with one egg, once with half an egg, once with liquid egg whites–and every time it tasted, no offense, very un-muffinlike (more like a breakfast Franken-scramble). today i thought, “why not substitute plain Greek yogurt for the egg”? i also added the 1 tbsp of milk to make sure it stayed moist (i hadn’t thought to do that the other 3 times…), and threw in half a scoop of vanilla protein powder for kicks. it turned out more like baked oatmeal than a muffin (maybe i didn’t need the milk this time around) but it was pretty awesome. def going to play around with this a bit more after all. :) <3

    • Cassie

      How much Greek yogurt did you use?

  • Joanne

    I used 2 bags of Quakers 2 minute quick oats, which is a bit less than what Cassey said to use, white sugar (don’t have stevia or brown sugar) and used 5 cherries because I didn’t have blueberries. I microwaved mine for 90 seconds. Maybe that’s too long. The muffin tasted a bit too firm and the cherries dislocated from the cake (LOL!). It is afterwards that I saw that I can add some soy milk if I like it softer. XD Anyway, nothing exploded which is a plus (I am so bad at cooking!) and my muffin didn’t stick to the cup. The muffin is a bit tasteless, but it is good. Next time, I will add soy milk, and maybe use honey instead of white sugar? Anyway, I have finished my cherries right before I typed this comment, so I do need new fruits. :P good luck with your muffin! If I can do it, you can do it. ;)

  • Ella

    I don’t have a microwave – could i make these in the oven instead?

  • I make this all the time, but I alter the recipie a little bit and it tastes really good, like banana bread. I swap the egg for one egg white, add a banana, and add half a scoop of vanilla protein powder. It tastes amazing!

  • Alexis

    Is there a substitute for the egg I’m a vegan and I don’t want to ruin the diet just for this one recipe.

    • Rosey

      Try mushed up bananas or applesauce as an alternative.

      • Julia

        Yeah, smart thinking! You’re the best! Good luck!

  • Destiny

    Ok so I tried this recipe exactly how you did it in the video and it just turned out like a giant scrambled egg. It did not taste good at all. What did I do wrong? I only added one egg as the recipe suggested.

    • Megan wiseman

      mine turned out the same looks like a scrambled egg and tasted so gross

      • Abby

        Same here!

    • Vere

      maybe you didn’t mix the ingredients well enough? I haven’t tried this one yet but I have done a mug brownie before (not as healthy haha) and I remember that I had to stir it a lot with a fork to get it all mixed up! Hope that helps! xx

    Yum, tried this with strawberries and brown sugar, it was delicious!

  • Alison

    I just made this for a post workout snack and it is sooo good! I used almond meal instead of oats (for the extra protein) and raspberries instead of blueberries. Yum :)

  • Lou

    I just tried this recipe with a banana instead of blueberries and some cinnamon and it’s so good !!

    is there an option for a lower cholesterol version? i need to avoid egg yolk as much as possible haha

    • Amy

      I’m looking through some of these comments, and I saw someone say they just used the egg whites of one egg and it turned out fine. So maybe that might work? Best of luck!

  • Sunny

    I tried this one but my “muffin” stuck with mug how did she get it from mug so easily without breaking? :p did i need to apply oil? anyway taste was nice ;)

    This is sooo good. :) I actually substituted blueberries for strawberries, and added a little brown sugar and vanilla extract to help get rid of the eggy flavor. It came out so amazing. ^-^

    • Olivia

      Vanilla really helps the taste! Since it’s coming into Autumn here I just added raspberry jam on top and with plain yogurt It’s really tasty! thanks for the vanilla tip!

    I make something similar all the time! It’s low carb (made with flax seeds instead of oats). I always add some mashed fruit to it as the sweetness source. Just google one minute flax seed muffin and you should see it if you’re interested.

  • Kayley

    anyone know a substitute for berries? i might put some strawberries…

    • Kayley

      or a few chunks of banana

    • Aria

      I’m trying it with strawberries right now – so far so good.

  • Sami

    Tried this, but we had no berries on hand (???!?!!!!!!) so instead I used a few mini chocolate chips. It wasn’t bad! Maybe a bit dry, and you can kind of taste the egg. Next time I might add some other things and serve it with greek yogurt.

  • I am new to your blog and I have to say, Iove it! Keep it up Miss Cassey. I just started my own blog. I’m trying to make a better me (in a year, six months into it) and your ten minutes a day with be an extra plus. Going to mention you in tonight’s post. Ciao.

  • Brittany

    Has anyone else found these to taste a little eggy?
    I followed the recipe and added a dash of cinnamon.
    Any suggestions?

    • Cal

      You can try adding some vanilla essence and that should fix it! :)

  • Roger

    I am not a fan of eggs so I used one between two muffins. I added 2/3 cup almond meal, handful of blueberries, teaspoon sugar, teaspoon cocoa and some coconut. Took 2 minutes to cook. Served with natural yoghurt. Yummy.

    I’ve made this recipe so many times and each time I try adding a little twist to it. Variations I’ve done were:
    -Replacing some of the oats with almond meal
    -Replacing all of the oats with almond meal
    -Cocoa powder

    Here’s my most successful one (note: it ends up pretty different to the original, not in a bad way though). I call it the Almond Chocolate muffin
    Muffin ingredients:
    -1 egg
    -About 1/3 cup of almond meal, or however much you want to achieve the right consistency for you
    -1/2 a banana
    -1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
    I then mixed this thoroughly and microwaved it. When it was done, I tipped it out of the mug and tidied up the edges with a knife. I then spread almond butter on top in an icing-like fashion and used a teaspoon to gently shake cocoa powder on top. It tasted a lot like real chocolate cake! I’m not even kidding.

  • Tali

    Ew. Sorry, love you Cassey but these were disgusting! All I could taste was the egg and that had a super gross texture.

  • Annabelle

    Love it! I made one with a teaspoon of raw cocoa and a teaspoon of organic unsalted/unsweetened peanut butter. Also yummy :)

  • morgana

    yummy the must girly muffin i have ever seen with all these colours

  • Sho Sho

    This came out really nice! I made it with little pieces of apple instead of blueberries, put in some honey, and moistened it with some almond milk and soy egg nog! YUM.

  • >>> Egg McMuffin Lovers – try this version>>>
    I just made this using one egg, about 1/4 c of instant oats, less than a tsp of milk and about a tbsp of shredded cheese (I had a triblend of colby, cheddar and something else). I mixed it all up and put it into the microwave for about 50 seconds. It was so good!!! It tasted almost like an Egg McMuffin!

  • April

    I added a teaspoon of dark brown sugar to mine.. my boyfriend added Pumpkin Spice International Delight Coffee Creamer to his.. and we both put some honey on top, was really good! BUT, maybe our mugs were too wide? We came out with like a 3 bite muffin. Rofl!

  • Angie

    OhmyGOD made it for first time and I love it! Replaced berry with bananas and drizzled honey over it after it was done and it was really good! My new breakfast before school!!

    How much should I let it bake in a regular oven and what temperature?

  • Annie

    Made it this morning but instead of blueberries, I used banana, and added cinnamon.
    I used old fashioned oats but I milled half of them in the nutribullet so it would be like flour, then left some whole. It was so yummy!

  • Ali

    I thought it was pretty good. I’m not used to using stevia, so it tasted alittle odd to me, but I could see eating it once a week or so. I’m trying to slowly replace meals with these healthier recipes so I can eventually do the 90 day challenge. I do have 2 other liquid sweeteners I will try with it. I also had to use old fashioned oats, but I knew it would make it chewier, so that was fine. I could see using cherries or any other berry for this too. May try some almond milk in it next time too. Hey I have a egg patty maker for the microwave. This would be really good on a muffin or bagel. Since it makes it round maybe you could use it as a dessert too. Drizzle alittle icing on it? Sounds good to me. Thanks Cassey!

  • fitgal

    I woke up early to make this, but it was gross :( It tasted like blueberry cardboard!

  • jolene

    ohmy!!! i made the healthy cheeseburger, ended having two to myself. i made the blueberry muffin today, i ended up making 2 cux theyre so YUMMY!!!! ohmy!!

  • Kaley

    Anybody know of an adjustment to the recipe to make it taste less spongy? All I could taste was egg.

    • Veronica

      Hello! (I have not tried this with the substitute yet but I would love to see how it turns out for you!)
      Usually when I make regular breads I use no sugar added applesauce! I would sub the egg for a little less than the individual sized cups (probably about half for a recipe this small).
      Hope this works! -Veronica

  • lubna

    making these right now! i can smell the aroma from the microwave! hope it turns out good… cant wait to digg in <3

  • Priscilla

    This is DELICIOUS! I added a spoonful of greek yogurt on the side to cool it down too :)
