Sometimes you don't have the time. Sometimes you're just feeling lazy. Whatever the reason, there are moments when you need your food and you need it now. For those moments, there are microwave-in-a-mug recipes, ranging from Nutella mug cake to even spaghetti squash.
Nutella, flour, baking powder and fat-free milk. And a mug. And a microwave. That's all you need for this simple and relatively healthy recipe from Kirbie's Cravings!
It only takes five minutes — three for prep and two for cooking — to make this protein-packed breakfast from AllWhitesEggWhites.com. At 144 calories and 19 grams of protein per serving, we'd say this is the kind of breakfast-of-champions we can get behind. (We might top with some avocado though.)
This scrumptious cookie-in-a-mug from The Iron You isn't low-calorie or low-fat, but it's grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo-friendly and uses all-natural ingredients, so at least you're indulging somewhat responsibly. It serves two and takes about one minute of cooking time.
A quick AND healthy breakfast? Yes, please. This apple banana "baked" oatmeal recipe from Food & Whine uses quick cooking oats, ground flax seed, egg, milk, banana, cinnamon, apple and honey.
Perhaps the sweetest thing you could ever find in a mug: cheesecake! This recipe from Hungry Little Girl takes only two minutes in the microwave and uses fat-free and low-fat ingredients to keep the calories and fat to a minimum.
