Blueberry Buckle – Muffin in a Mug

This Blueberry Buckle Muffin in a Mug is the perfect one-serving breakfast for busy mornings!

I don’t know about you, but I am always in a rush to get out of the door in the mornings. It seems like I never have time for a “real” breakfast. Plus, with just my son and I at home in the morning, it feels a little silly to cook breakfast for just me and a toddler who may or may not decide to eat what I make today. A muffin in a coffee mug is a great one-serving breakfast that I can whip up on busy mornings with ingredients I always have on hand in my pantry. (And this one is a winner with my son, too!)

I ran across the idea of making breakfast in a coffee mug on Pinterest, and I started playing around with some recipes. Some of them were terribly gooey, some were okay. After a lot of trial and error, I finally found a base muffin recipe that I liked. Then comes the fun… once you have the base recipe, you can start adding things… whatever you have on hand.

Today I’m sharing my favorite muffin in a mug concoction, inspired by a Blueberry Buckle that my mom made last summer. I had never heard of Blueberry Buckle, but we had tons of blueberries from a friend’s farm, so we had to get creative about how we used them! Blueberry Buckle is a sort of coffee cake-y dessert with fresh blueberries and a delicious cinnamon-sugar topping. Sometimes, I throw a little nutmeg into the topping mix. It gets a pop of freshness from a little bit of lemon juice. So good!

I make mine either in a coffee mug or in a small Pyrex glass dish if I want to take it to work with me. First planning in the morning has its drawbacks, but it also means I can eat breakfast while I plan!

To save time in the mornings, I mix up a batch of the topping  and store it in a plastic storage container in my spice cabinet. Then I can just sprinkle a little on top of my batter, and I’m ready to go.

After 2 years of using this resource I can say that it dramatically helped my usually low performing students be recognized as in the top 10% of growth in the state. This is a must have for any 5th grade teacher.

I love this resource! It was thorough and fun. The kids had a great time going through the various stations. The activities really helped to reinforce their understanding of probability. It was a hit and I will be using this for many years to come. Thank you!

I had purchased other flip books in the past and found them tricky or time-consuming. Not the case with this one! Very simple to use and will be a friendly tool to communicate important information with parents.

This is the best tool for organized groups! The kids love the timer and I love how it is color-coded for 2 minutes and 1 minute. I use this every day for reading and math centers!
