Apple Pie Microwave Mug Muffin

My family loves my mug muffin recipes, and they have been asking for an apple pie mug muffin! I can’t wait to share it with you also! Mug muffins are so awesome…….they are fast, fresh, and cater to an individuals preference, because you make one at a time! You don’t have a whole batch to consume before they get stale, and if you feel like apple, pumpkin, berry, or whatever you have in the house, you get to choose.

This muffin takes two minutes in the microwave, and you can prep it and refrigerate it the night before if your morning is rushed. Then all you have to do for breakfast is pop it in the microwave for two minutes, and it is ready! Even so, they only take ten minutes to prep and two minutes to cook if you make it right when you want it.

It is a nutritious, grain free, guilt free breakfast or snack! I personally like to make one in the evening, and my children like to make them for breakfast. This Apple Pie Mug Muffin is sweetened with just a tablespoon of honey, has a healthy fat and protein rich egg in it, and the apple of your choice, which is a good source of fiber as well as the coconut flour! I used Fuji apple in the muffin pictured below. If you like an apple with more tartness, try a Granny Smith, but any kind will work! Use your favorite!

In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the apple. Fold in the apple, reserving a little bit for the top. Spoon the batter into a mug. Sprinkle with the remaining diced apple. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

Serve! Be careful, it is hot and delicious, and smells soooo good!

    Beautiful and looks so healthy, delicious, and FAST! Are there any subs for coconut and almond flours? Unfortunately as a university student living in a very minimal apartment I don’t have those lovely ingredients 😦 BTW, I just discovered your blog and absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing such awesome recipes – I can’t wait to try them out!


    • Hi Cindy! I am so happy you like my blog! Thank you! Mug muffins are a perfect choice for a busy college student! I haven’t tested switching the flour in my mug muffin recipes. Coconut flour is a highly absorbent flour, which can be tricky to substitute. It comes in small bags, and can be found in many local grocery stores in the organic section as well as almond flour. Bob’s Red Mill is a trusted brand. I see you love oats as well. I bet if you do a google search you will find recipes for the flours you have on hand. If you get a chance to purchase the almond and coconut flour, I hope you try the Apple Pie and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Muffin Recipes on my blog! I appreciate your feedback, and thank you for stopping by!

        Thank you for the reply Sandra 🙂
        I’ve made a great mug cake using spelt flour before. I might have to switch around the proportions a little to make it work, but I’m loving the combination idea! Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to new posts!
