Quick & Easy Vegan Paleo Banana bread made in a mug! Ready in minutes!
This recipe requires a microwave. If you try using a standard oven you are at risk for a "soggy" cake. I find it cooks perfectly in the microwave
Note: For a larger serving you can double this recipe.
In a mug or small bowl, mash banana and then mix together ingredients in the order they are listed.
Mix well, then use the back of a spoon to smooth out the batter.
Optional: mix together cinnamon walnut topping and sprinkle over top of batter.
Microwave on high for 90 seconds. (If you double the recipe, increase microwave time to 2 minutes).
Let fully cool. And enjoy. This cake is best eaten directly out of the mug.
Ground chia seed meal with also work in place of ground flax seed. I personally like this little pumpkin cake best with ground golden flax.
Sweetener Options: using a liquid sweetener like maple syrup is recommended, but if you want to use a granulated sweetener, you can try it and if it seems too dry, then try increasing the banana puree to 2 1/2 or 3 Tablespoons total.
If you find this cake too sweet, you can experiment with swapping out some of the maple syrup for extra banana puree, but because I have not tested this, I do not know the exact ratios - please feel free to play around with it.
