Blueberry Banana Microwave Baked Oatmeal in a Mug
The three minute Blueberry Banana Microwave Baked Oatmeal in a Mug is the perfect recipe for those of you with little time for breakfast or anyone having to do their cooking without a stove. Quick, easy and oh so scrumptious- you guys are going to be head-over-heels for my newest microwave mug recipe!
One of the many great things about this oatmeal recipe is there is no worry with dirtying a single pot or pan! Very little clean-up is definitely a win in my book. I also love that this recipe uses ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. There’s nothing expensive or hard-to-find in this recipe.
The texture is wonderful- more cakey than oaty. You get what I mean, right? And who doesn’t love cake? Cake for breakfast- now that’s something I can get down with! Once you learn how easy and delicious this Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal is, you’ll never buy those instant oatmeal packets again!
After my oatmeal is completely cooked, I stir in a splash of almond milk and about 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter. Pure deliciousness! This microwave oatmeal recipe is:
And like a blueberry muffin, but way better!
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats*
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk**
- 1/3 of a medium banana mashed
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 1/3 cup fresh blueberries***
Spray a medium to large microwave-safe mug with cooking spray and inside combine all ingredients except blueberries. Gradually stir in blueberries.
Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. (I checked my mug at 2 minutes and then let it cook 1 minute more.)
Stir in extra milk, yogurt or nut butter; if desired.
*Use certified gluten-free oats as needed. Quick cooking oats work too, if that's what you have on-hand.
**Use any milk product that you prefer.
***I have not tried using frozen blueberries, but I'm sure it would work just fine. You could also try using raspberries, diced strawberries or halved blackberries.

Something to think about….
Have you ever tried “baking” in the microwave? What’s your favorite oatmeal flavor? Banana is a favorite, but I love pumpkin too. Hmmm…. I think we need a pumpkin cranberry “baked” microwave oatmeal next!
