Have you ever had one of those days where you get a craving for something, but you just don’t want to have to wait for it to cook? It happens to me all the time. The other day I was craving banana bread so badly, but I also didn’t feel like baking. Luckily for me, I had this recipe for making an easy and addictive cinnamon banana bread mug cake on hand. With this recipe, it took all of five minutes before I was enjoying a terrific paleo-friendly treat that more than satisfied my sweet tooth. You’re going to love this recipe not just because of how easy it is to make, but also for its wholesome ingredients. It took a while for me to adjust to using only paleo ingredients but now it’s all I look for in my recipes.

  1. Ermagerd this is so delicious! I always have the best intentions of making banana bread as soon as my nanners get too ripe for my liking, but I usually fail miserably. This recipe is the answer!!! I’ve subbed in maple syrup for the honey and/or coconut milk for the almond. I also omitted the nuts because I wouldn’t put them in regular banana bread anyway. It comes out HOT, so I usually make it and let it sit for 10 minutes (then forget I made it) so by the time I come back to it the temperature is perfect. It’s hearty and will fill you right up! I’ve made it at least 10 times since stumbling upon this recipe. Thank you!
