Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you’re enjoying the weekend so far?
As you know from my recent posts, my kiddos have been off school for the Easter holidays, aka. Spring break. They go back to school on Monday.
As a single parent, I can safely say these past 2 weeks have been massively hectic and stressful.
I love having them here. It means morning lie-ins now they’re older (whoop!), but it also sucks all my time away, which means less time for making desserts (boo!)
That’s how this Blueberry Mug Muffin was born…
Out of sheer desperation for a decent breakfast when you’re that busy that time is limited to an all time low!
Usually when I’m too busy, I just skip breakfast altogether. That’s bad, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they say.
All you need for this blueberry mug muffin is a few staple ingredients, a small amount of blueberries, and around 5 minutes of your time.
There’s no excuse for me to skip breakfast now!
This blueberry mug muffin has sweet plump blueberries throughout the batter. The muffin itself is delicately spiced with warming cinnamon, but the cinnamon is optional.
I could totally get into a habit of eating one of these blueberry mug muffins every. single. day!
I make these blueberry mug muffins and chocolate brownies in a mug for my kids all the time. Not only for breakfast, but as a quick snack when the hunger pangs strike.
