banana bread (in a mug)

It has been a while, friends.

I’m stopping in for a quick minute to share a recipe. This microwave banana bread only has a few ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to prepare. It’s dorm friendly and budget friendly and time crunch friendly. Three necessary requirements for me currently.2017-11-06 17.09.12.jpgAlso, I want to give a quick shout out to Swanson for generously giving me a chance to try a few of the products they sell (that are used in this recipe). This post isn’t sponsored, and the links to Swanson products are not affiliated links. But I included them because the company is great, and their commitment to affordable, healthy products is way cool.

You should go check them out.2017-11-06 17.08.03.jpgBanana Bread (in a mug)

  1. It’s so nice to “see” you again. Banana bread – that’s so very you :). This also reminds me I haven’t made any mug cakes in ages when during my university years, there was a period when I made one almost daily. Even though I didn’t live in a dorm. Maybe that whole studying thing requires that? [Though I also baked using my oven, too … I don’t know] Anyway, I hope you’re doing well and hope we can catch up sometime soon!


  2. I haven’t tried Swanson products (I don’t think) but I LOVE a mug cake. 🙂 My favorite easy breakfast is usually a yogurt bowl or toast, but a mug cake or banana bread sounds good too.


  3. I love oat flour in baked (or microwaved) goods. The consistency and flavor…perfect. Also, banana bread. You’re a girl after my own heart. I so happen to have all of the ingredients (minus chocolate chips, what a shame), and I’ll more likely than not make this tonight when I get back ravenous from my night class. Thanks for sharing!


    1. Oat flavor does have a great flavor. I’ve been using it to make porridge lately. It’s almost sweet and nutty.

      Hope you get the chance to try the mug cake…or find yourself a hearty chunk of real bananer bread.
