Healthy Single-Serving Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Microwave Cake
I wish I could be baking right now, half because I
like love desserts and half because the oven keeps my entire apartment warm. Sadly, I’ve been really busy with school lately (and hanging out with friends……) and only have time for quick meals. I flew from New York to Arizona JUST last month and I am still unpacking both of my suitcases.
Why couldn’t vacation
be two months longer last foreverrr??
In my book, quick meals = quick desserts, so I have been back to my microwave-baked dessert recipes
! They take only 5 minutes to make and 5 minutes to “bake.” I was in the mood for chocolate… and peanut butter… and then I had some ripe bananas on hand, so I made this Single-Serving Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Microwave Cake! It’s cakey, soft, moist and full of flavor, you would never guess that it’s healthy 🙂
