Make-Ahead Microwave Mug Meals for Real Food Fast!

Hi Bold Bakers!

I am proud to say I have created almost 100 mug recipes! From classic mug cakes like my Microwave Mug Brownie to more savory favorites like Mug Pizza, I love creating and sharing new Mug Meals. While my Mug Meals are truly real food fast, I thought there might be a way for even the busiest person to enjoy a great meal anytime…so that’s why I created Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals.

Just like you, I love to cook and insist on eating homemade wholesome food but don’t always have the time to cook a meal from start to finish. While this dilemma can be discouraging I have a super bold and fun way to meal prep also known as meal prep in a mug! With this idea in mind Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals were born.

These recipes for Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals are some of my favorite dinners, sweet treats and breakfasts all made in a little mug that sit perfectly in the fridge ready for you to micro-bake it off. From Make Ahead Fettuccini Alfredo in a Mug to a Make Ahead Mug Blondie, these recipes have got you and your family covered! Click on the links below to find your new favorites and even plan an entire week of Mug Meals!

You will love having this Make Ahead Microwave Mug Chili on hand. It’s protein rich and full of vegetables, so it’s the perfect thing to prep over the weekend and eat all week. Get my Microwave Mug Chili recipe.

can we Prepare the mug cakes & freeze to use later? if so how long can we keep them for? & do I need to microwave & cool it before putting into freezer or can we just mix up the batter & freeze?
