A healthy banana bread mug made in the microwave in less than 3 minutes. This light and fluffy single-serve banana bread is the perfect way to enjoy banana bread without making an entire loaf. Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, and refined sugar-free.
½ medium ripe banana (about 3 tablespoons mashed)
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk⠀
1–2 teaspoons of maple syrup (optional)⠀
2 teaspoons tahini (or any nut/seed butter)⠀
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup oat flour*⠀
½ teaspoon baking powder⠀
Pinch of sea salt⠀
Chopped dark chocolate
The batter can be made in a small bowl or directly in the mug for less clean up.
In a bowl or small mug, mash the banana. Mix in the almond milk, tahini, maple syrup (if using), and vanilla extract until smooth. Add in the oat flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Stir until just combined. If making in a separate bowl, transfer the batter to a small mug. Top with the chopped dark chocolate.
Place the mug the microwave for 2 minutes. The mug cake will rise significantly in the microwave then fall. You’ll know the mug cake is done when the bread starts to pull away from the edge of the mug. Let cool for 2-3 minutes before digging in.
