Yield: 1 serving

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 3 minutes


  • 1 cup frozen, pitted sweet cherries (no sugar added)
  • 2 tbsp old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp milk (any variety)
  • 1 tsp chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


  1. Place the frozen cherries in a 12-ounce microwave-safe mug.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in the vanilla. Add the milk and continue to stir until a thick batter forms.
  3. Pour the batter over the cherries and spread it to cover them.
  4. Microwave the mug on high for 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Check every 30 seconds because microwave cooking times can vary. The cake will become firm when cooked through and the cherries will bubble to the top. Watch closely the last 15 seconds as the cherries may begin to splatter.
  5. Remove from the microwave. Top with the nuts, if desired. Serve warm. Stir the cake portion of the cobbler into the cherries as you eat.
