The Two Minute Paleo Blueberry Muffin

Monday, February 25, 2013

I am usually am not a huge breakfast person.  My morning breakfast routine almost always consists of a a cup of coffee and a green smoothie, but the other morning I woke up craving a blueberry muffin like nobodies business.  Morning time is crazy time around my house and there was no way I had time (or felt like) making a big ole batch of muffins.  I wanted just one.  I did a little experimenting and used my mug cake recipe as a base and WOW!  Is it weird to say I blew myself away with this recipe?...Ya probably.

What you need:
  • 3 tbs of almond meal
  • 1 tbs of honey
  • 2 tbs of unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbs of bluberries
  • a dash of salt
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
Directions:
Mix everything up together in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 2 minutes.  Enjoy!

*For those of you who are going to say you hate the microwave (there is a whole clan of microwave haters) you can try baking this for 15-20 minutes.

*If you are allergic to almond meal you can use coconut flour.  Keep in mind the consistently will be slightly different.

This totally hits the spot.  It was good...so so good.

Please come back and let me know how you like this if you make it.

The carb count for this is approx 22 grams.

I will definitely be making this! My husband and I have been Paleo/Primal for about three months now and your 2-minute recipes save. my. life. when I'm in need of a quick sweet fix! Thank you so much for sharing. We praise you often in our house =)

You seriously crack me up Lindsay. Sometimes I wish I could be a fly on the wall in your kitchen to see you rock out these awesome recipes! Ha. Happy Monday friend!

Laura Larson said...

Hi Lindsay,

I found your blog on Pinterest for a recipe and have been following you ever since!

I love to see all of your recipes and would love if someone else made them for me haha

Great pictures! I wish I had your photography skills.

I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a post on your family's fast-food habits. With your healthy eating, I've just been wondering if you guys ever get fast-food and where you go if you have to. Do you have specific places you go that offer foods you can eat?

I think it would make for a great post.

Thank you!
Laura

Perfect for a quick breakfast for my daughter this morning. We were lacking some of the ingredients so we improvised, but it was still yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ambria Haught said...

This looks delicious! When my mom makes muffins or cinnamon buns or something I end up eating at least five (and the pan has twelve pats ha) this will be perfect for my greedy muffiny ways :)

Brittany GraceAnn said...

Stephanie said...

I made this for dessert tonight & it hit the spot! so easy! Thanks for sharing!!

MrsCzi said...

Yum! That looks delicious!

Christal said...

Yum! This looks delicious! If I were to make my own almond meal by grinding up raw almonds, how many almonds should I use to get the amount for this, 3 tablespoons?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Christal- Off the top of my head I am not sure how many almonds ground up would equal 3 tbs. Maybe 1/2 cup?

Bree said...

I tried your mug cake recipe for the first time the other night and it's my new favorite dessert! I wish that I had seen this recipe before I whipped myself up some breakfast this morning, but maybe it will be dessert tonight :)

Tammy Wickizer said...

Found you through this blogpost http://citizensofbeauty.com/beauty-reviews/kitchen-bronzer-hersheys talks about making your Paleo desert and having an epiphany about using cocoa powder as a bronzed. Anyhow, excited I found your blog and love my breakfast treat this morning instead of Eggs! So bored. Looking forward to giving many of your other recipes a try! 😊

Unknown said...

This looks amazing! Can you use frozen blueberries? And do you have any recommendations for substituting other sweeteners, like stevia?

Made this last night and it was delish! Thank you for sharing =)

So I made it yesterday and I used coconut flour... it was delicious but too dry, do you think I should add more applesauce? maybe some greek yogourt?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Like I said above coconut flour will change the consistency (make it more dry). I wold suggest using almond meal like the recipe calls for if you are not allergic or try adding a tad more applesauce. Hope that helps!

bailey michael said...

this was my first attempt and was a hit! my 6 and 4 year old both LOVED it! and my hubby. Thanks!

These are so good! I've had the blueberry three days this week and this morning instead of blueberry I put a little coconut and a few chocolate chips.Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Anonymous said...

If you use coconut flour, you definitely won't want 3 Tbsp- coconut flour is way more absorbent than almond meal.

I made this just now with mashed up banana instead of applesauce, half of the honey, and I added cinnamon and 1 Tbsp melted butter too. I love the custardy consistency! This is a good base recipe for mug cakes that I'll probably use again.

kylie @ immaeatthat said...

This is such a great recipe! I've been in a breakfast rut lately!! Can't wait to try this out:))

Robin said...

LOVE this recipe! I used almond milk instead of applesauce (I didn't have any) and 1/2 the honey but added monkfruit sweetener. I could eat like 7 of them but that would totally defeat the purpose! Thank you Lindsay!

vella-hinda said...

I made this three times now and each time the top was perfect but the bottom was very moist almost wet. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Does yours turn out the same way? What type of dish are you using?

Anonymous said...

What if you are allergic to almond and coconut? any suggestions lol

Anonymous said...

This was fantastic! I used 1.5 T coconut flour and it set up perfectly. Thank you so much for posting this :-)

We love this recipe in our house! I mix it up, take it to work and pop it in the microwave there. Hot breakfast at my desk, and it's delicious! My favorite is with strawberries. Thank you.

DorinaV said...

Only recently came across your blog... LOVE IT! The blueberry muffing ROCKS- made it this morning. I did however substitute Coconut Palm Sugar for the Honey since it was what I had on hand. This is a KEEPER! Thanks a bunch :)

Allison said...

Double Yum! this is a new favorite in our home and will be great for quick "eat it on the way to school" breakfasts : )

I made this with almond flour. I did not have any applesauce; however, the dish was awesome...topped with walnuts before baking for about 15 minutes. Yummy

Emeline Mathieu said...

Goooood Lord. I was searching for a quick and healthy way to make a blueberry muffin and BAM I found this website! Tried it right away & it was perfect, just awesome. I wish I would've let it cool down a bit but honestly, it was SOOO delicious! Lindsay, THANK YOU! I will be following this website from now on, you can count on me :).

DLovely Gibson said...

OMG! This just saved my life (er, all my hard work)! Searching the internet for something to do Paleo with some blueberries that need to be eaten in the fridge to satisfy my sweet craving and found this. I was this close to eating a praline I found in the fridge, even after a brutal day that included spin class and a does of an Insanity workout.

Alas, I avoid even honey/maple syrup/agave, so I used 1/4 of an overripe banana (I keep them as sugar in my fridge/freezer) instead, and loaded up on the blueberries.

Um, can you say ridiculously good? I know I did, even with my mouth full of awesome 2-minute muffin. You should be given instant sainthood. Bless you.

Just made this for a breakfast treat and LOVED it. Mixed it up at home and microwaved at work. Yum.

I have made this quite a number of times now and always had success. I've changed the flour / meal - almond/ rice/ hazlenut/ coconut/ cornmeal or combinations of the above. I've changed the fruit - mashed banana, applesauce, strawberries. My all time favourite is Choc-Hazlenut Strawberry Muffin
1 tbsp almond meal
1 tbsp hazelnut meal
1 tbsp rice flour
1 tbsp cocoa
1/2 tsp of baking powder
pinch of salt

3 tbsp of diced strawberries
2 tbsp of unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp of agave nectar
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla

Combine the dry ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Lightly coat the strawberries with dry ingredients and set aside. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Gently stir thru the coated strawberries. Microwave for 2 minutes.
Thank you so much for your inspiring site! Australia loves you!

Lauren said...

I've made it with strawberries. Amazing. Just needed a little extra cook time. But I'm in love.

Stephanie Peters said...

I love all of your mug recipes. Thanks for making single serving desserts. I have a hard time eating in moderation and these are perfect and hit the spot. So quick and convenient.

Do you know how many calories are in this recipe?

At what temperature would you bake this if you were to use an oven?

Anonymous said...

Made this several times now...my favorite way is to use strawberries instead of blueberries. Definitely need to beat the egg well first before adding the other ingredients. I also needed to microwave it for 3 minutes to cook it all the way through. So yummy!

Sam Mitrani said...

Tara Springer said...

I didn't have applesauce, so I used coconut oil instead. Turned out fabulous and really satisfied my blueberry muffin craving! Thanks!

deedee said...

I am just posting to add that I used frozen blueberries without a problem. Wasn't cooked enough after 2 minutes, but I inverted on a plate and gave it 1 more minute. Perfect!

I tried this quick easy recipe for the first time. I didn't have almond flour so I used coconut flour. It is very good! Thank you for sharing it! :-)

This was the best of the paleo muffins I've tried so far! I used 1/2 the amount of baking soda and no salt because the soda taste has been so strong in these types of recipes and I don't like the taste that gives off, and it worked out just fine. It did have an egginess to it, but it was so delicious. Thanks for posting!
