Combine all dry ingredients in a large coffee mug. Then stir in last 3 ingredients with a fork until well mixed.
Set in the microwave and set at high power for 1 minute.
Turn upside down onto a plate, and tap lightly. The muffin will fall out.
Remove the cup, and wash the cup out. If you leave it, it is more difficult to clean.
Source: I sort of incorporated ingredients from several recipes that I Googled up. So, although it is not my idea, it is my recipe.

Sometimes in the morning I will pour my coffee and put a scoop of Slimfast in the coffee. I will then let it sit a bit to get thick. Then I put about three scoops of light Cool Whip. It is pretty good.
It has vitamins and fiber in it so at least you have more than just a cup of coffee. It also saves on milk for when you want to do the Slimfast in general.
I thought I would share what I have found to work for me, for someone who gets up and never has time to stay and eat, but goes to work. A complete breakfast should have three of the four food groups and about 300 calories (a bowl of fiber-rich cereal with milk and a banana is an example of a complete breakfast). Ideally, there should be protein and fibre in the breakfast. These slow sugar release from foods so that you feel fuller longer. Recommended daily intake (RDI) for fibre is 30 grams. So it's great to eat whole grain breads and fiber-rich cereals in the morning to meet this RDI. Another thing to look for in a complete breakfast is calcium (to keep up bone density/mass).
To get the benefits a breakfast offers, you don't have to eat as soon as you wake up. Just make sure you eat within two hours of getting up. As I personally am out the door right when I get up, I have my own grocery cupboard at work, consisting of (and matching 3 out of 4 food groups):
As for me, I can definitely vouch that I have more energy throughout the day just by eating the breakfast I mentioned above. I would recommend anyone who argues to at least test it out for a month. You WILL see a difference in your energy and your mood.

While it's cooking, I whip 2 eggs in a cup and add into the pan. Egg substitute works well with this recipe also. Once it's scrambled, I add a little cheddar or small amount of Velveeta cheese.
I usually toast wheat bread and add the mixture onto it, wrap it up and my husband has a to-go breakfast ready when he is out of the shower. From start to finish, it takes less than 10 minutes and is much better than take out!
