Blueberry Crisp in a Mug– 3+ ingredients, 2+ minutes, a microwave, and a simple recipe you’re going to love! A quick and easy comfort food filled with berries, ready in minutes, will have you enjoying the flavors of summer… all year long. 



1/2 packet of flavored instant oatmeal (like Quaker’s Maple Brown Sugar or Cinnamon and Sugar)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (to thicken – see note)


In a small bowl with a fork, mix the instant oatmeal and melted butter until it resembles a crumble topping.

Add fresh or frozen blueberries (if using frozen see note) to the mug; toss with cornstarch if using. I like to fill my mug to the brim with berries, so the amount will vary depending on its size. Spread the topping over the top.

Microwave on HIGH 1-1/2 minutes. This time will be dependant on your microwave wattage, the size of your mug and quantity of berries used. Continue to microwave in additional 30-second increments until the blueberries are bubbling.

Let cool slightly — add a spoon — enjoy. Or — add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s so yummy.


Topping: 1 full packet of instant oatmeal is enough for 2 mugs.

Berries: if using frozen berries, allow an additional 15 to 30 seconds of cooking time.

Cornstarch: The cornstarch isn’t necessary but it does thicken the berries considerably, more similar to your favorite oven-baked blueberry crisp.
