Paleo Banana Bread Mug Muffin


Happy Easter everyone! Sorry the blog has been a bit slow lately; I’ve been hard at work on the cookbook!


I am obsessed with mug muffins.  I really feel like there is no end to what you can do with them. They also have healthy protein and fat from the egg, so they’re fairly nutritious.  I whipped up this muffin this morning for breakfast and Mom was begging me for a bite while I was trying to photograph it.  Go figure.

My sister Julia also loves mug muffins.  She went through a stage when all she wanted for breakfast was chocolate mug cake.  Yum…

Recipe Notes:

  •  Make sure to use a very ripe banana.  The kind you wouldn’t eat straight but which is perfect for baking.
  • You could probably change up this recipe a bit by using 1/4 cup applesauce in place of the banana, but I haven’t tried it yet.
  • If you want to make this recipe nut-free, you could probably used some coconut butter in place of the almond butter.
  • Add some cocoa powder if you want a banana chocolate muffin!

    Love this recipe! I added chocolate almond butter to the mixture then when it was done slathered chocolate almond butter and coconut butter on top. Yummy.
