Raise your hand if you are ready for a delicious 5 minute recipe!!! I’m all about being efficient in the mornings and getting the most done with my time BUT that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a delicious breakfast! AND that’s where this mug muffin comes in! I’ve seen many recipes for mug muffins/mug cakes but so many of them are full of ingredients that I know will leave me feeling sluggish and have minimal nutrients.

I set out to make a healthier mug muffin that can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast but that can also be dressed up to satisfy a sweet tooth craving! I also polled on my Instagram for flavor combination requests and chocolate was a clear winner so that inspired me to make this almond-banana-sea salt-chocolate chip oat muffin!

I loved how quickly this came together and how versatile I know this recipe can be. I plan on making more with fun combinations and also a mug muffin with a plant based protein powder – stay tuned! PLUS this may be the best part – it can all be mad in just one mug – that’s just one dirty dish to clean! If that’s not a sure win, I don’t know what is!

  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp honey/maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt
Optional Toppings
  • chocolate chips
  • almond/peanut butter
  • greek yogurt
  • banana
  • fresh berries
  • cacao nibs

Spray your mug with nonstick cooking spray
Mash the banana in the mug and then add egg white. Give this a good whip with a fork.
Add in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT for the sea salt, and mix until thoroughly combined.
Using 30 second intervals, microwave the mug muffin for a total of 2 minutes. You should notice the muffin pull away/separate from the side of the mug.
You can enjoy it straight from the mug or flip it on to a plate. Sprinkle the sea salt on top.
Add additional toppings and enjoy! Best if enjoyed day off.
  • If you don’t have quick oats, you can just pulse your rolled/old fashioned oats in a blender/food processor for a few seconds – no need to make them into an oat flour for this.

    Very delicious. I used a whole egg instead, no added sugar (syrup or honey), a teaspoon of peanut butter instead of almond butter and only a teaspoon of chocolate chips. I also increased the cinnamon to a teaspoon. Would be good with a dollop of whipped cream. Absolutely yummy, I will definitely make this again!


    Gotta try this!! What about using instant oatmeal??
