Quick fix: Single-serving banana bread

See also

This quick, easy microwave recipe was inspired by this recipe on PopSugar Fitness – the original is a vegan recipe, but I substituted what I had in my pantry and it came out wonderfully. Banana bread in less than five minutes – a great treat any time of the year.

Single-serving banana bread (adapted from PopSugar Fitness):

· 1/2 banana

· 2 tablespoons flour

· 1 tablespoon sugar

· 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

· 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

· 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil

Mash banana in a small bowl. Add remaining ingredients to the banana and mix well until a smooth batter forms.

Spray a ramekin with cooking spray and pour in batter, Microwave for 70 to 90 seconds on high, until batter is dry (watch carefully – overcooking will turn the bread tough and chewy).

Remove from microwave (ramekin will be hot), cool for one minute and enjoy!
