Banana bread is the #1 most popular recipe category here on the blog. I have been obsessed with all things banana bread for as long as I can remember.

Growing up my mom always had some in the house and it is forever my favorite. There is something so comforting and satisfying about having it. And I love how you can have it for breakfast, snack or dessert – anything!

This recipe though spices things up a bit. It makes one serving and takes a whole 2 minutes to cook. How insane is that? I know a handful of you guys live alone or don’t always want to make something that is a larger batch. Or maybe you have zero patience and want something tasty ASAP. This recipe is for you!

I have been making it for breakfast in the morning, after dinner for dessert – really anytime. It tastes so good with a scoop of coconut yogurt or ice cream on top too.

What ingredients you need to make gluten-free banana bread for one:

  • Egg – I haven’t tried flax egg but it should work!
  • Banana – I used a smaller banana. If you have larger one, use 3/4 or 1/2 of it
  • Almond flour – you can likely use oat flour here too. I don’t recommend coconut flour for a sub.
  • Creamy peanut butter – you can use any nut butter here but you know my love for creamy peanut butter!
  • Dark chocolate chips (code RACHL for free shipping)

How to make this single serving banana bread:

  1. Mix together the egg, banana, almond flour and peanut butter in a microwave safe mug or mini dish (I used one of these)
  2. Mix in chocolate chips to the mug
  3. Add to microwave and cook for 2 minutes (the cake will rise slightly so please keep on eye on it!)
  4. Remove from microwave and drizzle more peanut butter on top if desired and add some ice cream or yogurt if using!
  5. Eat while warm 🙂
