One of my favorite things about Banana bread is the smell of it baking up in the oven. The scent of sweet bread filling my house and taunting me for 45 minutes was enough to inspire this recipe that bakes up in a minute (please tell me I’m not the only one with no patience).

Since I’m on my dessert for one kick,  I thought it would be fun to make an easy Banana mug bread recipe.

First, this recipe is crazy good.

It’s the kind of recipe that can put sunshine into your  day and you won’t feel the least bit guilty because you ended up eating a whole loaf.

I really wanted to add walnuts to the recipe but I didn’t have any but trust me that I’ll do it the next time I make this.
