Blueberries are in such ample supply right now, and they’re one of my favorite berries.  So it goes without saying I love coming so up recipes to include them.  It’s so much fun to create real healthy food.

This Blueberry Lemon MIM (stands for Muffin in a Mug) came from moment of deep hunger…some might call it “hangry” lol.  Well,  I wasn’t about to let that take me over so I went to the kitchen and with little thought came up with this easy, delicious, Trim Healthy Mama approved (learn more about THM here) MIM.

This muffin in a mug is so easy to make, which is great for when you’re in a real hurry like around breakfast or lunch.  You can zap this in the microwave or bake it in the oven, it’s really your choice.

This MIM is a great source of protein and has excellent antioxidants from those amazing little blueberries.

I’m sure this MIM will be a new favorite of yours with the first bite.

    The flavors are so well balanced in this! Great recipe

  5. Mine came out mushy and not set after 3.5 minutes in the microwave.

      making sure you’ve followed the recipe exactly makes a big difference. Also if you have an old, or low watt microwave you’ll need to bake longer.

    I made this for breakfast this morning. Mine wasn’t set it was kind of mushy. It was good taste.

      you’re microwave might not be as strong as mine….nuke it longer, or try baking it.
