  • 4 tablespoon flour ($0.02)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder ($0.01)
  • teaspoon salt ($0.01)
  • 2 tablespoon sugar ($0.01)
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil ($0.10)
  • 3 tablespoon milk ($0.04)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ($0.02)
  • 4 tablespoon blueberries (about 10) ($0.34)


  • In your coffee mug mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate container, melt the coconut oil in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Mix with the milk and vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
  • Gently add in the blueberries and stir together.
  • Microwave mug for 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes until cooked through and there's a wet spot on the top.


When it finishes cooking, the top center of the mug muffin will appear a tad wet. It looks like undercooked bread batter and might make you want to pop it back in the microwave for longer.
Please note that this "wet spot" is supposed to happen with almost all mug cakes. It's a sign that it's cooked properly and not overdone. To cook it until that spot disappears will give you a rubbery and chewy muffin.
After removing the mug from the microwave the spot goes away in a matter of seconds. To accurately test to see if the blueberry muffin has been completely cooked through, stab at it with a fork and check the inside. That is the most accurate test, looking at the center for yourself.
If you wait too long after adding the berries, you'll notice gravity pulling them down in your cup. This is a big reason for adding them as the last step before microwaving the cup so that they can't sink while cooking.
Adding a tablespoon of cheesecake dry pudding mix (from a boxed pudding) into the ingredients can give a richer taste and feel. As can adding in a couple of white chocolate chips!
