Many mornings go by and I always tend to struggle to come up with something to eat. Truth be told, I am far from a breakfast person. I would be quite content enjoying my morning coffee or mocha, and going about my day.

The reality is though that skipping breakfast just isn’t healthy, and if anything breakfast should be the last meal you skip each day. As what you consume for breakfast is what fuels  the day ahead.

Most days, I will opt for a smoothie and a bowl of oatmeal or quinoa. Other days I want for nothing more than to enjoy a dessert for breakfast. A mug cake, if you will. Which got me thinking… If you can prepare a single serving mug cake in the microwave, there ought to be a way to prepare a muffin in the microwave. That is how this Blueberry Muffin Mug Recipe came to be.

It is a quick, easy and filling single-serving muffin that can be prepared on the fly! If you love blueberry muffins, you will surely love this recipe.
