Can you really go wrong with blueberries? I absolutely love fresh muffins with sparkling sugar and big juicy blueberries. They are the perfect way to start your morning after a fast. A blueberry muffin in a mug is a great option for a single serve breakfast muffin.
You can adjust it to easily meet your dietary needs such as an almond flour blueberry muffin or a paleo muffin. You can make a vegan blueberry muffin or just tailor it to items you have in your pantry.
Of course, if you aren’t a fan of blueberries you can alter these mug muffins with any ingredients you would like. You can make strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, or any other fruity blends. You could make chocolate chip muffins ( or cacao if you prefer vegan muffins). You could even just do a simple cinnamon sugar muffin like our muffin bites.
Blueberries are a great option to those living with autoimmune issues or chronic illness though. They are full of antioxidants that help support the immune system. They are also a great source of fiber, folate, and Vitamin C. They can help support healthy bones with their healthy portions of calcium and magnesium.

I am completely in love with the concept of baking something in a mug in my microwave. As much as I love taking hours ( sometimes days ) baking something awesome in my kitchen some days I just don’t have the time or energy for that. The idea that I can make a smaller version of the treats I love for me ( and the nerdlets if they’re lucky) is really just something that I can’t say no to.
Some of the best muffin recipes that I have found have been for individual muffins. You can also find mug recipes for cakes, or brownies, or even GIANT COOKIES. There are some great recipes out there for a mug cake with cake mix. You can get quite a few of them out of one box of cake mix, which is a great frugal dessert! They are fantastic for altering to meet your own dietary needs or restrictions. You can even make a different one for each member of your family if you need to.
Even if you don’t have any allergies or restrictions in the house they are great for picky eaters who only want chocolate or will only have something fruity. You can easily alter your recipe to please even grumpy 12-year-olds in a breeze.

Amazingly Simple Blueberry Bliss Muffin in a Mug
These quick and easy single serve blueberry muffins are a great option for breakfast, an after school snack, or any other time you want a simple healthy and delicious option.
- 1/2 C unbleached flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp natural applesauce
- 1-2 tsp Stevia extract
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- handful fresh blueberries
- sprinkle powdered sugar
- Combine dry ingredients in the bottom of the mug. Mix with a fork until there are no clumps.
- Add the applesauce to the dry ingredients and combine fully. Be careful not to overmix at this step as it can make the muffin too chewy. Add Stevia and vanilla and combine. Other liquid sweeteners can be used such as Agave. Adjust the amount to your personal sweetness preference.
- Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Microwaves vary like crazy so watch carefully the first few times you make these to make sure that it comes out to your preferred texture. You can play with the timing for more gooey muffins or more cake-like muffins.
- Top with more blueberries and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar when cooked.
You can use any berries that you have available for this one, or mix berries if you like. Get as creative as you want. (You can even do chocolate chips if you want!)
