I'm sure you guys already know this....but I love mug recipes. I mean, I did do an entire YouTube series dedicated to them late last year that was appropriately named "Month Of Mug Cakes". I also made a free e-book that features all of those mug recipes, and you can get it simply by signing up for my Weekly Recipe Newsletter . And all the Newsletter is, is just 1 email a week containing my most recent recipes. You won't wanna miss it!
Alright, now lets talk a little bit about this blueberry muffin mug recipe.
First off, the consistency is spot on muffin. If you've tried mug recipes in the past (especially healthy ones), then you know sometimes the consistency just doesn't turn out cake-y, or muffin-y, or whatever-y your making. I can guarantee you, from making and eating several of these muffins, that this is not the case here. This blueberry muffin has that perfect muffin consistency...you know, the kind that's just slightly denser than an actual cake? Yeah, that's the kind this muffin has.
Of course, the top of this muffin doesn't get as "hard" as a typical muffin does, but honestly I really didn't miss that. The bites without blueberries have a wonderful vanilla flavor. In fact, if the muffin didn't have any blueberries, it would still be absolutely delicious. But the bites with blueberries certainly take this muffin to a whoooole new level of deliciousness.
And the last thing I'll say about this mug muffin is how big it is. This mug recipe makes a lot of muffin, for not a lot of calories/macros. You definitely can just eat this muffin by itself for breakfast, and feel confident you'll feel full until lunch.

I'll be making this.
I sent you a pic of your choc donut recipe that I made. So good!
The Diet Chef says
Deb, I just noticed my email got returned somehow. So I'm sorry you never got it. Please send your pics to my personal email going forward, I don't ever want to miss them/have trouble getting back to you - [email protected]
Thank you for all your support! Oh, and if you haven't replaced 25g of the sugar in those donuts with some cal free chocolate walden farms and made a cake yet DO IT! :)
Steve Goguen says
What do you like to use as your sugar alternative? Stevia, Splenda....?
The Diet Chef says
I personally like to use "Splenda's Sugar Blend". The recipes that you see on the blog should all be made with a sugar substitute that atleast has the same weight as normal sugar. Some subs, are far less dense, and shouldn't be used with the recipes. Atleast not if you want the best results :) Hope this helps!
