Make a healthy breakfast in a coffee mug in under two minutes in the microwave. Look for the muffin in a mug mix on my website along with cake in a cup and other variations. Add fruit, such as raisins, a few pieces of chopped apples, or dried apricots, if desired.

I received an email highlighting this recipe and I made it right away. It was quick easy and filling. I only used 1/2 the cinnamon it called for but next time will try a bit more. I also only used 1 TBSP of walnuts to keep the calorie count reasonable and it was enough to add a good crunch. I used whole oats instead of quick oats (it was all I had) & whole flax seed & the muffin was very good. Next time I will add some sliced apples or dried cherries. Tip: Make sure you use a large cup; it will cook more evenly. Mine took two minutes to cook. Read More

Add a dash of salt. And toast the product after cooking cut in half under a toaster broiler and you have slightly less doughy product. It has good flavor and when paired with a product like apple butter sweet potato or other type spreads is particularly flavorful and still healthier than a plain muffin with butter. Read More

I was surprised by how good this tasted! It made a dense muffin that was very filling. I know everyone hates when a recipe is reviewed after the entire recipe is altered. I do too! That being said, I only changed 2 ingredients to make the recipe more Weight Watcher friendly. I used 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters in place of the egg, omitted the walnuts, and used 1 packet of Splenda instead of the honey. The original recipe was 13 Smart Points. My version was 4 Smart Points. I can't wait to make this again tomorrow for breakfast :) Read More

Turned out well. I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. I just would like to reduce the cinnamon next time I make it. Read More

Turned out very nicely. I will make these ahead of time and throw them in the freezer for a quick and healthy snack or dessert. Next time I would add a little grated carrot for a nice change. Read More

I didn't have walnuts so used sunflower seeds. Wish either that they had been salted or that I had added a dash of salt. Must try the toasting idea others had written about. Lovely warm with a bit of half and half over it though. Sort of a breakfast bread pudding. Read More

I will make this again! I used less cinnamon subbed hazelnut meal for flaxseed meal pecans for walnuts and added a few mini chocolate chips. It's delicious and so quick! Read More

It flopped for me. Spilled over in microwave & didn't set up nicely. Flavor is nice. I put half amount cinnamon & that was plenty. I'd cut the honey back if I were to make it again... Personal sweetness factor Read More

Would like to have nutrition info with recipes. Found this recipe to be just okay. Needs less cinnamon and more time (2 min. in a 1000 watt mw) Read More
