Banana Chocolate Mug Cake

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

This is seriously one of the easiest one serving breakfasts ever. I mean cake for breakfast? Say what?? Yes. I'm saying it. It is also one serving in a nice big mug, so no need to share :) Unless you are me & have a two year old who eats all of yours before you get a chance to....! However, hey that speaks to how yummy this is & check the ingredients, this is all good to fuel you right this morning! I have tried other mug cakes before creating this recipe. To be honest I had a hard time with the consistency. A lot I tried used coconut flour or almond flour & I couldn't quite get over the gritty tasting. SO I decided to grind up my own oat flour & go to town trying them out! Oat flour is a lot cheaper than other gluten free flours. Just get a nice big container of gluten free old fashioned rolled oats & blend them in the blender until it is a smooth consistency. See below :) Then I store in a mason jar & use for pancakes, these mug cakes or as substitute for flour!

ENJOY THIS GUYS... SERIOUSLY. I am so excited for you. We ate 3 yesterday... no shame in this mug cake game!

Oat flour consistency


3 tbsp + 1 tsp oat flour

1 banana ( the riper the better)

1 egg

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

dash of ground cinnamon

pinch of salt

1 tbsp REBBL Chocolate Elixir ( I HIGHLY recommend this, it tastes exactly like chocolate milk, but dairy free. However, you can sub any milk here.. but seriously try this kind it gives it more chocolate taste)

2 tbsp Enjoy Life mini semi sweet chocolate chips


1. Lightly grease a deep mug with coconut oil or whatever you choose

2. In that mug take banana & mash it until full mashed well, then add in one egg & whisk until fully incorporated. Next add in the vanilla extract & chocolate elixir. Mix with a fork until full incorporated as well.

3. Next add in the dry ingredients: cinnamon, salt, chocolate chips & oat flour. Mix until it is all combined. Then heat in microwave for 90 seconds. Check with tooth pick if it needs any longer depending on what mug you use. But start with 90 seconds, mine never take longer than that. However, do what is best for your microwave! Then sprinkle MORE chocolate chips on top & sliced banana & seriously GO TO TOWN! This will make your morning happy!
