Easy microwave desserts Mylk Labs oatmeal

Holiday S’Mores Muffin

Toasted marshmallow. Chocolate. Graham cracker. Need we say s’more?

A longtime companion to ghoulish campfire stories, buzzing lightning bugs, and quiet nights under the stars, no sweet treat quite reminds us of childhood like the warm, gooey taste of a s’more. Put a fresh spin on this classic dessert with our Strawberry Vanilla Oatmeal and you’ll make the s’most of a scrumptious s’more treat.

Topped with perfectly roasted marshmallows, moistened by creamy apple sauce, and oozing with delicious cocoa, this Holiday S'Mores Muffin in a mug makes a perfect companion to a summer sunset or a simple night in. Using our instant oatmeal as a delicious base, this muffin becomes even tastier with a diced strawberry topping and a dash of whipped cream. 

Did we mention it cooks in less than three minutes? 

What’s that? Are you already eating? Yeah, we figured as much.

Protein Mug Cake

Our bodies run on protein. This vital nutrient keeps us full and energized while helping our muscles grow. Unfortunately, protein’s not often found in the wide world of desserts.

Let’s change that. 

With this Protein-Packed Mug Cake, you can munch on a succulent dessert while absorbing a healthy serving of muscle-building protein. Just pick any flavor of our naturally gluten-free oats and crack in an egg, half a banana, and a heaping spoonful of your favorite protein powder. 

Add in some almond milk, baking powder, and two and a half minutes in the microwave, and voila! You’ve added a protein-filled option to your dessert repertoire.

If your sweet tooth still isn’t satisfied, drizzle on some strawberry icing and a tasteful topping of sprinkles. If instead, you’re looking for an extra protein boost, sprinkle on some sliced almonds or a splash of soy milk.

apple crisp microwave dessert recipe

Apple Crisp

It’s long been said there’s nothing more American than apple pie. We think we might have created something even better. It’s called instant apple pie, it cooks in less than four minutes, and it’s about to change your go-to dessert menu forever.

Building off our beloved Granny Smith Apple & Sunflower Cinnamon Oatmeal, this 5-Minute Apple Crisp is layered with creamy olive oil, enriching whole wheat flour and velvety maple syrup. 

Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside, this tasty apple treat might just have dethroned apple pie from its top spot as America’s favorite dessert. Oh, and if you like your apple pie a-la-mode, this instant apple crisp loves being served with a dollop of coconut yogurt for company. 

triple chocolate microwave oatmeal muffin recipe

Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Muffin

Humans like chocolate. Scratch that.

Humans love chocolate.

Nearly every civilization that’s come across the cocoa bean has made it integral to their culture and way of life. Don’t believe us? At the height of their civilization, the Aztecs even used chocolate as currency! You could put a down payment on a house with a Snickers bar. 

If you ever find yourself back in Aztec times, remember to bring along our Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Muffin. Our guess is that you’ll be elevated to instant royalty.

Gooey, rich, and oh-so-decadent, chocolate tastes even better when it’s sharing a bowl with our delicious, natural oats. 

With a heaping spoonful of apple sauce, teaspoons of bittersweet cocoa powder, and a healthy handful of chocolate chips, this triple chocolate oatmeal mug muffin recipe is easily worth its weight in gold.

Blueberry Muffin

You spot ‘em, you pick ‘em, then eat ‘em. There’s nothing quite as sweet as blueberry season. Well, biting into a perfect blueberry muffin might be a close contender.

Our take on this classic pastry complements our sweet Blueberry Maple Oatmeal with nutty banana and a splash of almond milk. Throw in a heaping handful of fresh blueberries and you’ve baked up a scrumptious single-serve blueberry muffin in less than five minutes. 

Serve alongside sliced strawberries, a dollop of coconut cream, or go even bluer with an extra bowl of freshly-picked blueberries.

Apple Muffin

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But what about an apple muffin? 

This Microwave Oatmeal Apple Muffin recipe is every bit as flavorful as a bite of Red Delicious and makes a perfect dessert choice for those who like a side of sour with their sweets.

Using our delightfully tart Granny Smith Apple and Sunflower Cinnamon Oatmeal, this muffin tingles the taste buds with rich banana, savory egg, and crunchy apple bits. 

For an extra burst of sugar, whip up a maple almond drizzle with creamy almond butter and succulent maple syrup. Lightly pour it atop your oatmeal apple muffin, and you’ve got a new dessert dish to satisfy your sweet tooth.
