Wholewheat Banana Mug Cake | Microwave Mug Cake

A healthy mug cake with a ripe banana – ready in less than five minutes!




A lot of times, my head is completely empty. I really don’t know what to write about. There was a time when my mind would go on an overboard and get me in topics after topics. But that isn’t the case anymore. Maybe my brain was really overworked for the past few months that now it just wants to go blank. Hehe…


A lot of them tell me that they like reading my blog because of the littel personal titbits I add to my posts. Initially I used to write a lot about my girls. But as they grew up, such instances kept reducing. Now having one in her teens and the other in her tweens, they drive me nuts with their fussy eating choices and messy habits, but then I tell myself that this too shall pass, even though sometimes I do allow my anger to get a little better out of me. HD is busy as usual trying to make ends meet after two catastrophic years we had. I can’t say things are looking good, but all I can say is Alhamdulillah ala kulli haal. I am here, trying to apply for new jobs, studying for a PG diploma course, trying to reduce all that weight I put back after having lost them, binging Netflix whenever I can… So actually speaking, I amn’t exactly free as well. Maybe if I stop putting pressure on myself, everything may flow, gradually…




I used to make a lot of mug cakes earlier, but now that has come to a half, I feel. The last one I made and posted was this red velvet mug cake. Now Azza is more interested in making microwave treats, so maybe I will get her to make a few and post them like a series soon. Hehe… till then, let me go into this healthy mug cake, which is one of my favorites…


Bananas are always at home and though it doesn’t get ripe that soon, sometimes I do end up with an odd one. These days, my making of banana bakes are extremely limited since my girls are not fond of them and I may end up eating the whole batch. Nothing more than making a mug cake then, isn’t it? Why did I mention it as healthy? I have used wholewheat flour completely in this recipe. You can use powdered oats flour as well. Instead of sugar, I used honey. It is still a sweetner, though a natural one at that. It makes for a less guilty self-pampering treat, especially if you are like me, who is struggling to make what you like because of your folks. Hehe… If you do have a banana lurking at you, then go ahead and make this right now… If you are not a mug cake person, then my next bet would be this delicious breakfast smoothie with frozen bananas… Off to this recipe…

  1. I’d never even imagined that the mug cakes I usually make with chocolate could be made with fruits as well! Banana is one of my favorite fruits and since your recipe looks quite easy to make, I definitely want to try! Thank you for sharing a quick exciting recipe!
