Suggested Serving Size
1 mug muffin per person. Little kids might only have the appetite for half a muffin.
We like the taste of coconut oil in these muffins, but other neutral oils like avocado oil or sunflower oil work too. It has a stronger taste, but olive oil works too! Also, note that some coconut oil tastes very strongly of coconut, but you can't taste it in some brands.
Looking for an egg substitute? Make a flaxseed egg!
Mix 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons water, then let sit in the fridge for 15 minutes. Then use in place of the egg!
Grown-up Pro Tip
If you want to make multiple muffins for multiple people, it’s easy to double or triple the recipe (or more)! Just start cooking with more mugs, and repeat each recipe step in each mug as you go.
Blueberries are yummy in this muffin, but you can also experiment with lots of other fruit like apples, strawberries and raspberries.
