Microwave Mug Meals: 5 Unbelievable Recipes

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Microwave Mug Meals are an easy way to eat Real Food for every meal but with little waiting or wash up. Mug Meals take minutes to mix up and less time to cook in the microwave. To make your life easy I have created a days worth of Microwave Mug Meals from breakfast to dinner, and of course dessert. You’ll find real game changers like Microwave Mug Granola, Macaroni & Cheese and even Microwave Mug Pizza.

Microwave Mug Meals are for EVERYONE! Whether you are always on the go, living in a dorm or want to eat single serving portions of real meals that will satisfy your appetite and save you time. Mix any of the Microwave Mug Meals up the night before, and just pop them into the microwave for a quick meal in minutes. And of course, feel free to combine them all for the ultimate Mug Meal!

You won’t believe that Granola can come out of a microwave crunchy, toasted and just like baked granola but without the wait and wash up. This Granola is gluten free and suitable for vegans. Find the Microwave Granola in a Mug recipe here.

        Love the pizza mug! I adapt it to WW – I use a low carb baking mix and almond milk and leave out oil and leavenings. Mushrooms are great in this! Thanks!!!

  6. Ananya on January 7, 2016 at 11:25 am

    Gemma you are completely awesome. I have know words for these mug recipes ????????. I’ll surely try them and I also have a question that can we use chia seeds soaked in water as a substitute for egg whites.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 12:02 pm

      Thanks so much for your questions, Ananya. Really glad you liked these recipes. I haven’t tried using chia seeds for eggs, but I think if you grind the chia seeds up first then add water to them, it will make more of an eggy-texture. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Ananya on January 7, 2016 at 1:18 pm

        Thank you so so much ☺️.

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    There a book yet

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 1:24 pm

      not yet BUT we are planning it out now to get it in full swing. I think my first book might be mug cakes 🙂

        I really hope so and that we can get it posted here to Guernsey in Channel Islands

  11. Sophia on January 7, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    Thanks for these recipes my brothers are already bothering me about making them a pizza for lunch! I didn’t know you could even make noodles in the microwave but I’m trying it anyways! Thanks so much

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 2:27 pm

      Thanks so much, Sophia. Really glad you liked these recipes. Stay tuned for more 🙂

  12. Francoise on January 7, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Hi Gemma, Im from Canada and love your recipes very much, so simple and what I like is Im making these for one serving. Wanted to know if I can use the oven instead of the microwave? I heard that microwaves are not to healthy….. thank you and keep those good recipes going!!!!!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 2:25 pm

      Thanks so much for your question, Francoise. I haven’t tried baking these in the oven, but I think it will be 6-8 minutes at 350oF. Every oven and mug is different, so be sure to keep an eye on it. Hope this helps 🙂

    • Darla on November 6, 2016 at 12:46 pm

      Hi, did you try it in the oven? I don’t have a microwave either so I’m curious to see if it worked or not, thanks 🙂

      • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on November 7, 2016 at 1:26 am

        if you are going to try these in your oven remember it is more costly! try it when the oven is already in use for something else, then you will know. It will be better to bake a few at a time, in muffin cases too, freeze for later 🙂

  13. Ann on January 7, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    Thank you so much for the calorie counts you provide. I know it takes a bit more work to figure that part out, so I’m truly grateful. 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 7, 2016 at 3:10 pm

      Thanks so much for noticing, Ann. Look forward to more in the future. 🙂

      Thank you so much, Robin. I really appreciate it 🙂

  15. Linda on January 7, 2016 at 5:12 pm

    Gemma, these are fantastic! Can you give us a general mug size that is best to use? What about using jars so we can make some of these and then take them to work? What jar size would be better?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 11, 2016 at 1:03 pm

      Thanks for your question, Linda. The mugs I’m using are teacup-sized. You can use any microwave safe mug you prefer. I haven’t tried using jars for this recipe. Let me know how it turns out 🙂

  22. Eunice on January 8, 2016 at 5:57 am

    Hi Gemma! I am so happy I ran into your youtube channel! I am a honduran student living in Taiwan, currently I live in the dorms and all I have is a fridge and a microwave, so these recipes are pretty handy to me! Hope you can create more lunch-in-a-mug style recipes, so I can have more options for lunch! 😀

    Hugs and kisses from the other side of the world 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 8, 2016 at 6:22 am

      Hi Eunice,

      Your message is the exact reason I make these videos. Even if you live in dorms or have small/shared kitchens doesn’t mean you can’t eat good, real food. I am thrilled you found my channel and I promise I will have lots more mug meals coming 🙂

      Thank you for being apart of the community 🙂

  23. Manpreet Hire on January 8, 2016 at 6:21 am

    These recipes are just awesome. The pizza specially. Can’t wait to try them. But i don’t have a microwave. Can i use oven instead?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 8, 2016 at 11:12 pm

      Hi,

      You can bake them in the oven at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.
      Write down how long it took so you know for the future also.

      Good luck with your mug cakes,
      Gemma.

  24. Rachel on January 8, 2016 at 10:11 am

    These recipes look great! Pizza is one of my favorite foods I can’t wait to try this thank you!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 8, 2016 at 11:01 pm

      I’m am thrilled you like my microwave mug meals Rachel. Make sure you try the Pizza, it’s crazy good. 🙂

  25. Anmarie on January 8, 2016 at 11:21 am

    I love these! Going to try with my stepdaughter. Do you have any mug or regular recipes using stevia only as the sweetner? I would buy the recipe book if you do.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 8, 2016 at 11:08 pm

      I’m am thrilled you like my microwave mug meals Annmarie. If you want because they are small amounts change out the white sugar in the mug cakes for your preference of sweetner. The brown sugar recipes however are always a bit nicer done with the brown sugar because it has a caramel flavor.

      A book is in the works. Watch this space 🙂

  26. Alice Sawicki on January 8, 2016 at 11:39 am

    Thank you so much for sharing this mug meal idea. I tried the blueberry pancake and had to improvise with my 2 c. glass measuring cup and micro it for 1minute and 15 seconds and it worked out great. Will have to find those mug cups, What size or measurements in cup size are there? Again thanks very much, looking forward to trying others.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 11, 2016 at 1:53 pm

      Thanks so much, Alice. Really glad you liked these recipes. I use teacup-sized mugs. You can use any microwave safe mug for this. Every mug and microwave is different, so just be sure to keep an eye on it while cooking. Hope this helps 🙂

  27. Patricia on January 8, 2016 at 4:36 pm

  40. Krista on January 10, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Hi, Gemma!
    I just found your website yesterday and already made the cinnamon roll in a mug and it was amazing! I was happy to share your website with my mom who loves to make treats but lives alone and my niece who lives in a dorm and really misses baking. I also am excited to have my kids, 9,10 and 11 try out some recipes too. I love that they can each make a dessert that they want with their preferred ice cream flavor. Seriously, having them agree on what to bake is nearly impossible and you’ve made it easy for each of them to make exactly what they want, themselves! I never thought that I could bake in the microwave but you have made me a believer. Can’t wait to try more :)!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 11, 2016 at 12:33 pm

      Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment, Krista. Really glad you like these recipes! Check out all of my microwave mug recipes in the recipe section here on my website. Stay tuned for more in 2016 🙂

      Thanks for your comment, Teri. I’m using teacup-sized mugs. You can use any mug you prefer as long as it’s microwave safe. Hope this helps 🙂

    I usually get really annoyed when unsolicited stuff comes through my FB page but was quite happy when this one showed up from Tip Hero. These are fabulous ideas, especially for times when I have my Grandchildren after school unexpectedly and I need to feed them before they head off to their activities. Dinner in a mug is great fun for little people so I need to surf around your site and see if there are other savory ideas for mugs. Thanks!

    We’ve got a lot of allergies in the family and now it’s easy to cook for everybody .
    I think my sons favorite is the pizzamug!
    Thank you ! The recipes are also easy to addapt for gluten and milkfree diet. I use coconutsugar instead of normal sugar,because my daughter has a allegy for sugar and that works fine.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on February 23, 2016 at 10:22 am

      Hi Sabine, thank you for letting me know. That is a great trick, coconut sugar is not common in the USA but I will be able to suggest it as a sugar alternative. 🙂

  79. Becky Brothers on February 24, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    I’m a chocolate lover but the full recipe was too much for me. Even with a small scoop of ice cream on top. Loved the idea though. If making again, will probably make 1 serving and split the cooked brownie to make 2 servings topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Thanks for the idea.

        Yes. I did add a little more chocolate chips though. Also i used almond flour. I going to make this again. Can I use 2tablesppons instead now?

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on February 28, 2016 at 2:04 pm

          Hi there, this is the almond flour! when you change an ingredient you change the recipe! Almond flour is not as absorbent as wheat flour, so it will not take liquid in the same way. Use less liquid and it might work, but it is not the recipe!

      Hi there Schania,
      No there is a challenge!
      If you have self raising flour you do not need to use baking powder.
      If you do not have brown sugar, use white.
      If you do not have vanilla perhaps use another flavor, like lemon zest, orange zest, coffee, chocolate etc.
      Work with what you have I say 🙂

    Hey Gemma,
    I recently discovered your website via tip hero and even attempted your tiramisu cake for my husbands birthday (which surprisingly turned out really good :D). For someone who’s really bad at cooking and baking your website seems like i can use some magic to impress :D…my only question is that i can not eat eggs and seems like you use it quite often..what can you substitute the egg with?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 22, 2016 at 9:41 pm

      Hi,

      Thanks so much for coming to my website. I’m delighted you like it. I’m glad you found us via tip hero. They share a lot of our videos which is great for us. So I do use eggs a lot but also I have tons of recipes with no eggs including my mug recipes. Lots of them I use apple sauce or banana to replace the egg.

      We are over hauling the recipe and are dedicating a whole section to egg free recipes and will be adding a lot more so I hope you like that. For now this is the chart I use to replace eggs in my baking http://www.egglesscooking.com/egg-substitutes/

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 29, 2016 at 1:32 pm

      Hi Susan,
      It really depends on the mug recipe. I would prefer a traditional recipe for the conventional oven as it is an expensive way to bake one mug cake.
      However cake type recipes will bake at 180 degrees for about 15 mins.

    Gemma ur ideas are cool I just wanted to know that can I use normal cheese instead of cheddar and is there any substition for scallions

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2016 at 2:18 am

      Hi there,
      So! what is normal cheese? Different countries have their own version of a hard cheese, some countries have many regional cheeses too. I good hard well flavored cheese, which melts with heat will work for you. Scallions are also known as Spring onion, and are widely available. You can use chives if you can get these, delicious, or you can leave them out altogether. Change the additions to suit your taste and available ingredients,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, thanks for your recipes. I will try all of them and see if I’ll be lucky this time 🙂 I tried other mug cake recipes in the microwave and they were hard. Could not eat them… Interesting because the difference between your recipes and those I have tested was one ingredient: egg – Yours there are no eggs… Is it perhaps the reason why my recipes were not soft and tasty? thanking you again

      Hi Dora,
      Egg is one of the most difficult things to manage in microwave cooking. Microwaves essentially ‘spot’ cook, and then the heat from the ‘spot’ cooks the surrounding food. Eggs will toughen if submitted to this treatment for too long, so the quantity and how they are handled through the cooking process, matters. So, well spotted!
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma,
    My sister introduced me to your videos and website. (You are amazing)
    I tried this recipe twice and the same thing happened both times, the dough sank after being taken out of the microwave. Do you have any tips to fix that? I’m determined to get it right. I also tried the Mac-n-cheese and that was excellent. Thanks for showing the fresh side.

      Hi Christina,
      Thank you for being with us. It sounds like it was not fully cooked! could that be right? When the cake is baked it will feel firm to the touch. If it is baked, it almost cannot fall.
      The stencil for butterflies? (http://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/?s=Stencil) is with this post. Search in the search bar for others,
      Gemma 🙂

    Can you use self raising flour?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 13, 2016 at 1:33 am

      Hi Camy,
      it depends on the recipe, it is best to follow the recipe for each application,
      Gemma 🙂

  108. Jennifer on August 20, 2016 at 5:51 am

    These look awesome! I am excited to share them with my children. These mug meals would be something they could make for a snack or meal until I get home from work. Thank you for these recipes!

      That is the idea Jennifer, get the kids baking, it is a skill for life!

    Just found your website yesterday and must give you a big thank you. I am a disabled elderly lady who lives alone and does not eat all the time because of all the cleanup and wastefull leftovers. I tried your Mac and Cheese yesterday and will be making many more of your mugs. Thank you for the service to all the people who are cooking for one.

    Hi there Gemma!
    When I was having swallowing problems a while ago your soft mug recipes were all I could eat. Thank you for that! Now even after the issue is resolved I still have your recipes for breakfast all the time!

    Wondering if I can freeze a meal in a mug for later. I’m using Thanksgiving leftovers. Thanks!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on November 26, 2016 at 7:18 am

      Yes, but these are best prepared, cooked and eaten at once, microwaved food does not keep as well as traditionally prepared food,
      Gemma 🙂
