Well, you all know I have an obsession with microwaved desserts. I make them often, and I go all out.

But... I think I out-done myself with this one.

Yes. That cupcake is healthy and was made in a microwave. I was as surprised as you are.
*This can be alternated to the flavor you want. The one I'm showing you is a chocolate-pumpkin flavor! Though, the chocolate overpowered the pumpkin... It was still there!

2 tbsp dry oats (I used old fashioned)
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1/2 tbsp unsweetened all natural cocoa powder
1 packet of Stevia/sweetener
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
dash of cinnamon
dash of pumpkin pie spice
pinch of nutmeg
1 egg white
1 tbsp almond milk
1/2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1/4 banana, mashed in
optional add-ins: granola, cereals, dried fruits, etc.

Mix completely and thoroughly.

Put 2 cupcake liners inside a (microwave-safe) mug. Pour your batter into the cupcake liners carefully.
I topped mine with a banana slice. Just because.

Microwave for 3 minutes.
If it overflows, don't worry! Mine did both times I made this. Just push it all back into the mug/cupcake liner, and microwave for another minute. (The extra minute will also re-form your cupcake if it got too large and it overflowed! It all depends on your mug size, really!)
Top with nut butter and any other thing your heart desires, and enjoy this moist, healthy, microwaveable cupcake! Quick, easy, delicious, and healthy... What more can you ask for in a dessert?!


  1. Thanks for the recipe; it looks great!! I think I'm going to make that for dessert tonight!
