We're very big on breakfasts in the Things at Home office. This weekend, we knocked up these quick, tasty (if a bit naughty) breakfast muffins and we just had to share the recipe! They're brilliant if you have to rustle up a last minute morning treat for house guests. If you prefer a slightly less full-on breakfast hit, check out our Five minute banana breakfast muffins instead!

Sussex, England, UK

10 people made this

IngredientsMakes: 1 muffin-in-a-cup

  • 4 tablespoons wholemeal plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons demerara sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons chocolate chips (optional but awesome!)
  • 2 tablespoons whisked egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1 splash vanilla extract

MethodPrep:2min ›Cook:3min ›Ready in:5min

  1. Stick all your ingredients into the coffee mug and stir well. The cup should be about two thirds full.
  2. Sprinkle the top with sugar and whack it in the microwave on full power for about 3 minutes, until the mixture has risen over the top of the mug and is sticky and bubbly.
  3. Take it out of the microwave and let it stand for 10 minutes. The top will sink back into the cup. Either serve it in the mug or turned out onto a plate, topped with a dollop of plain yoghurt and some fresh hazelnuts. Yum!


Don't expect microwave muffins to have the same light, fluffy texture as oven cooked ones. These will be sticky, sweet and quite heavy. As a rule, the wetter the mixture, the lighter the texture of the muffin, but you can't have everything in three minutes! :)

Filling, Delicious 5-Minute Breakfasts for Busy Mornings

I&aposm not a morning person, but that didn&apost matter when our elementary school&aposs start time moved nearly two hours earlier this year. My issues with the breakfast hour had to change – including the hour part. What I have now are the breakfast minutes. My challenge: Getting a quick and easy meal on the table in less time than it takes to sleep through another snooze-button. The even bigger challenge: Packing in enough calories and nutrition to fuel everyone through the school and work day. As with most home cooking, we found a little advance work the day before can make a big difference.

Here are 5 quick breakfast ideas, including two on the go breakfast ideas that -– for those mornings that still get away from you -– can be grabbed on your way out the door. We&aposll also dish out some great meal prep ideas for breakfast.

1) Dressed-up Overnight Oatmeal

I cook rolled oats a lot because they are super cheap when you buy them in bulk bins, nutritious, and won&apost leave you feeling hungry mid-morning. A lot of people assume rolled oats are too slow for a weekday breakfast, but pre-soaking makes them cook almost as fast as a packet of instant oatmeal. (Some people don&apost cook them at all!) For every cup of oats I pour into a saucepan, I add a cup of whole milk and a cup of water, then stir the mixture and refrigerate it overnight. I take the saucepan out of the fridge in the morning, cook and stir over medium heat until it thickens, for a minute or two, and it&aposs done. Microwaving works too, though it leaves the oats chewier than I personally prefer. Cutting a banana over the top dresses up the oatmeal a bit, but to make it feel like a real treat fill up a few little cups with nuts, dried fruit, and brown sugar or honey. If you have a slow-cooker, that works for overnight preparation too.

2) Breakfast Frittata

Start the day right with a well-balanced wedge of eggs, veggies and cheese or meats. Cooking a frittata takes more than five minutes, of course – but warming it up does not. Either bake one in advance expressly for a day or two of family breakfasts, or save some dinner leftovers. One reason I love frittatas is that they&aposre so flexible, taking advantage of just about any building blocks you&aposve got in the fridge, pantry or garden. Instead of using a skillet, I bake them in a 9-inch pan, which is easier to store in the fridge. These muffin-tin versions are also great, and can be eaten on-the-go. Bonus: They taste good warm or room temp.

3) Egg Muffin Sandwiches

There&aposs a reason fast-food versions of these egg sandwiches are so popular: They&aposre warm, satisfying, and hit all the toasty, cheesy pleasure points. They can also be eaten relatively neatly with one hand on the way to the bus stop. Our simple version: Put an English muffin in the toaster. While it&aposs toasting, crack an egg into a microwave-safe cup, mix it with about a teaspoon of water and some salt and pepper. Microwave the egg for 40 seconds. Spread the English muffin with a little mayonnaise, scoop the egg on top of it, and top it with a slice of deli cheese, plus ham or sausage patty if you like. This variation uses plain toast and has you melting the cheese in the microwave at the end.

14 Delicious And Easy Five Minute Dessert Anyone Can Make

We bring to you easy and delicious five minute desserts that you can make and become the star at the party!

These are fast and do not require more than three to four ingredients. Have a look!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Muffins

This chocolate chip muffin recipe is super simple to make! Here’s how it goes:

First, whisk together the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.

Then, pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.

Gently fold in the chocolate chips, saving a few to sprinkle on top.

Finally, bake. Use a 1/3-cup measuring scoop to divide the batter into a greased 12-cup muffin tin. Sprinkle on those extra chocolate chips, and pop the muffins in a 350° oven.

Bake for 22 minutes, or the muffin tops spring back to the touch. They should be lightly golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out with a few crumbs attached.

Allow them to cool for 15 minutes in the tin before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
