Single-Serving Butterscotch Buckwheat Microwave Muffin

In my last post I gave you two recipes for Homemade Butterscotch Chips — one that can be baked as it is suitable for high heat applications and one that is meant for no-bake treats because they will melt into caramel-like pockets of goo.  I said that the no-bake version would be a great addition to krispy treats, protein bars and even a bowl of dessert oatmeal…  but, how would the chips hold up to a microwave muffin?

They held up miiiighty fiiiine!  Yes, the chips softened slightly similar to warm caramels, but they definitely didn’t melt into a pool of hot syrup…  like the blondies I tried baking these with…  This healthy Single-Serving Butterscotch Buckwheat Microwave Muffin is absolutely divine, mouthwatering and sweet.  It definitely tastes like a dessert but its health benefits qualifies it for breakfast.  I’m serious.  And it only takes five minutes to make and five minutes to “bake?”  Hell yes.

    I love all your single serving desserts! Any chance you will be making a tag for single-serving so we can find all of them on one page.

    They may be single serving, but I am not opposed to having more than 1 at a time 🙂

  2. Three cheers for butterscotch recipes! I LOVE butterscotch, and maybe I can even incorporate a little butterscotch extract into the single serving muffin! Score!

      Ahhh butterscotch extract! Great idea Jane! Defffinitely going to make that soon, I think I’ll use 1/8 tsp extract first just to make sure it isn’t too strong 🙂

  3. I love all your microwave muffins, and I can’t wait to try this one! I love the idea of using the butterscotch chips, but I also think think it would be great with lots of different add-ins. I have a feeling I’ll be making this recipe all the time.
