Healthy Breakfast Muffin in a Cup Recipe

I just discovered an amazing Healthy Muffin in a cup recipe!!! I’m super excited. Can you tell?! Did you happen to see the Dr. Oz show today? His guest today was Tim Ferriss! As in the Tim Ferriss that has the best seller book Tim Ferriss’ Jumpstart: Supercharge and Reshape Your Body.

I love easy recipes that don’t require me to mess up my whole kitchen. This recipe is extremely healthy and it only takes a few minutes. I know first hand how important every minute is in the morning when you are trying to rush out the door. Balancing time and health is one of my biggest struggles so I can relate. I was super impressed with the breakfast muffin in a cup! I’ve done this before with a “cake in a cup” but nothing healthy like this!

This has me wondering if this is a Dr. Gundry breakfast approved idea.

This photo shows a view of the muffin almost finished in the microwave. Look at how big it rises!

  1. I tried this using coconut flour. Tooo much cinnamon for my taste. Will decrease it down to 1 ttsp. I also had to add about a tablespoon of almond milk because the mixture was too dry.

  2. I’ve tried this & that amount of baking powder is too much! Tasted nasty! I made it again, w/only 1/8 t. and it was edible then!

  3. This was so dry and I follow the directions. I am going to try again and I am going to add flour and apple sauce for moisture.

  4. This tasted pretty good – I added a little cinnamon applesauce and it tasted really good – had to microwave it a little longer than 50 seconds.

  5. is anyone besides myself allergic to Gogi Berries? They tasted delicious but the break out was’nt so nice.

  6. Hi Jennifer, there’s no flour in this? It sounds like a sweetened egg. Maybe the ground flax seed acts like a flour? I’d like to try this as I have all of these ingredience. Thanks!

    1. Yes! The Flax Seed does act like the Flour! I am tempted to make my kitchen into a science experiment today and see if I can make the texture of it a little less “gritty”
