I am on the email list for Betty Crocker and receive recipes several times a week. Often it appears that the recipes are new. I say this because there will be no reviews and ratings. 

Last week the featured recipes in one of the emails I got was for four or five different "mug" and microwave treats. I checked them out and decided there were two of them I definitely wanted to try.

Saturday after getting home from walking in the Y with my friend Janice, I noticed my husband had not used all of the egg beaters. He told me I could use them if I needed to. He meant for me to make an omelet or something, but I told him I had another idea.

Well, the Cinnamon Banana Nut Mug Muffin are just the cutest thing! Besides being low calorie, they are so delicious. I even made them using stevia instead of sugar. I wanted to use more than a tablespoon of chopped nuts, but I didn't. If you like nutty muffins though, I would say go for it. 

One thing I really like about these little muffins is you make them up when you want to eat them. You don't have a mix that you store and forget about. I can't wait to try the S'mores Mug one. Will let you know how it turns out.

I do have to say that the picture Betty Crocker used was misleading. They said to use a 12-ounce mug and then their cooked muffin almost filled the mug. You might want to use a smaller mug/cup if that is what you want. My finished muffin filled maybe half of the mug if that much. BUT it was delicious....and just the right amount for me.


1/3       cup biscuit mix
3          tablespoons sugar (stevia works fine)
1/4       teaspoon cinnamon
1/4       cup mashed banana (about 1/2 banana)
1           tablespoon butter, melted
1           tablespoon egg beaters
1/8       teaspoon vanilla
1           tablespoon chopped nuts

Spray a 12 - oz mug with non-stick cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine the biscuit mix, sugar, and cinnamon.

Add the banana, butter, egg beaters, and vanilla.

Stir til well mixed.

Stir in the nuts.

Divide the batter evenly (about 1/3 cup) between the two mugs.

Cooking one at a time, cook on HIGH for 45 - 60 seconds. The top will be set and the muffin will be pulled away from the sides of the mug.

Rest it 1 minute and then enjoy it warm right from the mug. You can drizzle a little melted butter on top if you like.
