There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked banana bread, is there? It tastes amazing hot out of the oven and can be enjoyed in lunches or for an easy snack for days to come. But that fluffy fragrant dough-ball seems to take so long to create and cook when you’ve got a serious craving! Have we got a warm, gooey, simple workaround for you!
We’ve recently been trying our hands at microwave mug recipes, which are so delicious and helps solve the “cooking-for-one” challenge. With some savory recipes in the bank, we thought we’d tackle a fan favorite … chocolate chip banana bread! With a handful of simple ingredients, a mug, and a microwave (that’s right, you don’t even need an oven!), you can go from craving to chowing in 5 minutes!
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup coconut cream (this can be skimmed off the top of a settled can of coconut milk)
6 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
1-2 tbsp sugar-free dark chocolate chips
Grease the mug with coconut oil spray.
Add the mashed banana, eggs, and coconut cream to the mug. Mix well.
Add cinnamon and coconut flour. Mix until combined.
Mix in walnuts and 1 tbsp of chocolate chips. Top with an additional tbsp of chips, if desired.
Microwave for 4-5 minutes. Enjoy warm!
Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
