This is the perfect recipe for one of those crazy mornings when you don’t really have time to make breakfast. It’s super easy with simple ingredients and will only take about 1 minute to make.

Being a mother of two little kids, mornings can be a really hectic time for me, I bet you other mommies can relate. So, when I make this recipe, not only I consider the time it will take to make them, but I also want to make something that my kids can really enjoy.
This recipe is so versatile, you basically can mix and match the ingredients to your liking. I used egg for this recipe but if you don’t eat egg, you can always add some more banana to it. You can also substitute the peanut butter with almond butter for a healthier option. The point is, make this recipe as a base and add your own touch to it.

Microwave each mug separately for about 1 minute until risen and firm. (every microwave is different so cooking may vary).Be careful not to overcook or the cake will dry out fast.
