Easy banana mug cake (paleo)

Easy banana mug cake (paleo)

My friend and colleague Kate from Health N Able Kinesiology put me onto this simple ‘mug cake recipe for one’ she found on The Roasted Root website, and I was keen to give it a try for a little afternoon treat.

This has been topped with same raw cashews for presentation.

The end result!  This has been topped with same raw cashews for presentation.

I didn’t have the all the ingredients from the original version, so my version uses chopped cashews, mixed into the tasty banana, maple syrup, cinnamon and coconut flour mix.

  • Banana is the hero ingredient of this simple cake, which uses coconut flour as its base, mixed in coconut or other nut milk.
  • Beat the egg lightly and add to mug.
  • Mash the banana and add to mug.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of coconut or other nut milk.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of coconut flower, with a pinch of sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
  • Chop a tablespoon or so of cashews, and add them to the mug.
  • Don't worry if it only is half way up the mug... it will rise in the microwave.
  • Serve warm, after you have let it cool a bit.

The verdict? It was quick, easy and delicious!

Recipe below.

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut or nut milk (I used a blend of coconut and almond milk)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons maple syrup (you can use honey if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon raw cashews, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a microwave-safe mug and mix together until well-combined.
  2. Microwave on high for 3-1/2 minutes.
    (You may have to adjust the time to the power of your microwave, and you can always do a test run!)
  3. Allow cake to cool a little before enjoying, and serve warm!
