Coconut & Mixed Berry Mug Muffin

mug muffin

Oh, muffins. So fluffy, cakey, and delicious. Muffins make the perfect quick and on-the-go breakfast. It is always a better idea to make your muffins and baked goods at home because you can control the quality of the ingredients, sugar level, and customize them any way you’d like!

I love making a batch of muffins on the weekends to eat throughout the week, but sometimes I find myself craving one for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee, but don’t have a batched made. When that happens, a mug muffin is the perfect solution. It’s quick and simple, taking less than 5 minutes to prepare.What I also love about this recipe is you can even make it the night before and just do a fast reheat in the morning – voila, a hot, fresh muffin!

Another thing I love about this mug muffin? It is SO light and fluffy. We don’t have any of that weird rubbery and tough mug muffin/cake here. Gross.

There are also no fancy ingredients, no butter, no egg, no dairy, (making it vegan) and not a lot of sugar. It’s a win all around.

This is an extremely easy and versatile recipe, so get creative with it and use any ingredients that you have on hand. If you don’t have coconut milk, use regular milk or another milk substitute. Use olive oil or vegetable oil if you don’t have coconut oil. Use fresh fruit, or make it a chocolate chip muffin by replacing the berries with chocolate chips!

Add your dry ingredients to a large mug and whisk well. Add wet ingredients directly to the dry and stir until just combined. Don’t stir too much, otherwise, you risk a tougher muffin.

Add in your mixed berries or other add-ins of your choice!

Microwave for about 60 seconds or until all the batter is cooked on top. If it’s not done after 60 seconds, microwave in 15-second increments until done.


Anxiety Fighting Ingredients

  • Blueberries/berries – rich is antioxidants and vitamin C, which can help fight rises and spikes in cortisol levels within the body. Preventing cortisol spikes is important for anxiety sufferers because it’s also known as the “fight or flight” hormone. Too much cortisol causes feelings of nervousness and fear, makes your heart beat faster, and contributes to muscle contractions. This makes your body feel as though there is an eminent threat, and low and behold – anxiety rears its ugly head. Adding these super berries to your breakfast can help start your day off on the right foot by helping cortisol levels return to a healthy level.

Add the dry ingredients to a large mug - the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder and mix well.


Add the wet ingredients - the coconut milk, coconut oil, and vanilla into the dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated. Don't overmix or you'll end up with a tougher muffin.


Gently fold in the mixed berries.

Let cool for a minute or 2 and enjoy!
