Quick Dorm Foods: Cobbler-in-a-Mug Recipe

If you’re an early riser like myself, eating on weekend mornings can be difficult with the dining hall not opening until later in the morning. I’ve become a fan of this fiber and protein-packed berry cobbler in-a-mug to get me up and moving and keep me satisfied until lunch. This simple meal is easy enough for anyone to make, and is accessible for dorm use!


  • 2 tbsp milk (approx. ¼ inch in mug)
  • ½ cup instant oats (8 heaping spoon-fulls)
  • 1 egg OR 4 scoops plain or vanilla Greek yogurt 
  • 1 spoon-full sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, agave, etc.)
  • Handful of your berry choice
  • Optional – dash of cinnamon
  • Optional – 1 scoop of protein powder + extra tbsp of milk for an extra boost
  • Optional – Scoop of your preferred nut butter (PB, almond, sunflower, etc.) for another protein option + some flavor


  1. Combine all ingredients excluding the berries in your mug (or bowl) and stir.
  2. Add your berries and gently mix.
  3. Microwave for 2 minutes, then check. If in a mug, will most likely need another minute.
  4. Remove carefully, as the mug will be quite hot.
