This simple banana mug bread that is full of flavor and perfectly moist. Get your banana bread fix in minutes! made with
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.
Paleo Banana Bread in a Mug

- 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons dark chocolate chips
Mix ingredients in a bowl and then add to your mug Microwave for 2 minutes

This looks so good! I am all about super-simple treats without a bunch of ingredients I don’t even have. Having a bag of chocolate chips in the house can be dangerous, though. 😉
Super dangerous Tarah 🙂
This looks divine. And dessert in a single serving is exactly what I need because will power? Me? Nope.
Just made this recipe. Took me a couple of minutes to throw it all together and microwave. Super easy and super yummy!
So glad you can see it Kymberly!
THANK YOU!!! Thank you for sharing a single serving scrumptious dessert with us! I had everything on had except chocolate chips which is fine because I am allergic to chocolate 🙁 This dessert is seriously magic in a cup & take VERY little time to create! I made my own almond flour by zipping a little under 1/2 cup almonds through my food processor. Since I didn’t process then to a super fine powder, there was added texture to my banana bread which left me not feeling bad for omitting the walnuts (which I am also allergic to!) I added the mixture to a bowl with the egg & 1 small/medium banana which was a little more than the called for 1/4 cup. I added the rest of the ingredients & popped in the microwave for 2 minutes. To mu utter surprise, I now have a delicious dessert just for ME! Thanks again & have a super day! <3
Awesome Amber!!! Enjoy hun!
SO quick and easy!! I substitute Cashew flour as didn’t have any Almond and it worked perfectly. I also didn’t have any chocolate chips and used Cacao nibs instead…chocolate chips would be SO much better lol.
I will definitely make again. Thank you 🙂
Love what you did Wendy. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I saw this tonight and had to make it. Measured out the ingredients and realized I was out of bananas. I used 1/4 cup frozen pineapple, thawed with tsp of ghee. Mashed and used as replacement for banana. It was awesome. Thank you for sharing. I’ll get bananas later in the week and give the original a go. ?
Wow, I love the changes you made Karen!
Hi Kelly, I don’t own a microwave, its a personal preference.
Would it cook differently in the oven using a muffin tin??
You can bake this at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes hun.
Mug cakes are always a good idea! And I’m a sucker for banana mug cakes with a lil’ chocolate 😉
This is the perfect “momma needs a break during naptime” treat! Thanks!
Single serving desserts are a lifesaver for me because I always find it hard with bigger desserts not to just keep eating them until they’re gone! This looks scrumptious and you can’t beat the chocolate banana combo!
I can’t believe this takes less than 5 minutes! Almost dangerous haha. I’m saving this so I can try it later!
You make dessert so easy! I might even have all these ingredients on hand right now… yum!
I love mug breads so will definitely be trying this one out, especially since it doesn’t have a gazillion ingredients!
Kelly, this mug bread looks so delicious! Can’t wait to try it!
This looks so simple and delicious to make ! Perfect for breakfast ! Thank you !
I love to have some mug recipes just in case I get a craving for something a bit off my plan! Lovely for a treat, and this looks fab. Thanks for a great recipe 🙂
You know I love recipes in a mug! This one looks super tasty!
What a fun mug cake recipe!!!
Such a quick and easy treat! I’ll make one for work tonight, the perfect snack!
I have a weak spot for mug cakes. This is too good… and too easy 😉
YUM! And so easy!
We don’t have a microwave anymore, but now I’m tempted to get one just for this recipe!!
I love chocolate chip banana bread, now this is so fun! A perfect treat for one … yes please!
This post has put sunshine in my day! So much deliciousness in such a short time of prep time. Exactly what I love!
