5-minute Healthy Banana Mug Cake

Happy friday everyone!

I know I know, it’s been a while… but life has been a little busy lately and I haven’t had time to blog as much. My house is under construction (which is driving me C R A Z Y), and my MBA classes are consuming almost all my free time. But better later than never, right? Now I’m back and I promise to come here more often.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know I haven’t been able to cook as much and because of it, microwave as become my best friend. So today I decided to share with you this quick and healthy recipe that only takes few ingredients and a microwave!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week so far… I have been crazy busy with my MBA and even though I only go to class on Tuesday’s night, it feels like I’m always working on different assignments and projects! Like NEVER ENDING… But I guess being busy in grad school is a good thing, right?!

Anyway, I didn’t come here just to talk about my classes. I came here to share a super YUMMY recipe that I’m sure you will LOVE (specially if you’re an avocado lover like me)!

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Directions: Beat the ripe banana, avocado, sugar, and honey with mixer until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Sift in the wheat flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined. Add almond milk and beat again until smooth. Divide the batter into 12 muffin cups and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until they pass the “toothpick test”.

Sheina’s tip: Cool the muffins for a few minutes in the pan, then serve them warm along with a freshly brewed coffee… It s the perfect combo FOR REAL!
