Omelette in a mug

Directions: Mix eggs, milk, salt, pepper and toppings of your choosing in a mug. Microwave for 2 minutes and enjoy an easy omelette for yourself.

Rate: 7/10 It wasn't really an omelette, but that could just be on my part. I realized as I was making it I didn't any veggies to put in. So it just tasted like scrambled eggs with cheese, however it was easier than trying to make it in a pan. If you are in a rush and really want eggs, this is the recipe for you!

Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal in a mug

Directions: Put oats, water, milk, creamy peanut butter and your favorite jelly into a microwave safe mug, mix ingredients well. Cook for 1 minute then stir, and repeat two more times. The cooking process should take about 3 minutes.

Rate: 9/10 Honestly, this tasted really good. But there was a bit of a mishap on my part, it exploded all over my microwave and the outside of the cup. Now reading over the recipe again, I realized I put it in the microwave for 3 minutes straight instead of 1 minute intervals. Also, I wish I used grape jelly instead of strawberry, but that is just a personal preference. Definitely give this recipe a try!

Peanut Butter and Banana mug cake

Directions: In a microwave safe mug, mix together a banana, peanut butter, egg whites, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Microwave for 1 minute, making sure to watch the mug to keep the batter from overflowing.

Rate: 6/10 This tasted okay, but I'm scared the the cake wasn't cooked all the way and I ate raw egg whites. Honestly, I wouldn't really try this one. It wasn't the best tasting cake and some precautions need to be taken to ensure you aren't eating any raw batter.
