Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Microwave Cake
Whenever I buy a bunch of bananas I always always always have a few leftover that I don’t feel like eating plain on their own.  And sometimes I just don’t have the time to bake a whole loaf of banana bread.  So I make this super quick microwave cake…  a single-serving microwave cake…  a peanut-butter-infused banana microwave cake.

Did I mention that this super quick, single-serving, peanut-butter-infused banana microwave cake is also healthy?  It’s filled with fruit and healthy fats, without any oil added.  It’s packed with fiber and protein, without any eggs or protein powder added!
You won’t believe this soft and sweet cake is gluten free and vegan, all for you and only you  :)

Now that’s what I call a balanced breakfast lunch and dinner and dessert!  With only 9g of healthy fats, 12g of fiber and 24g of complete protein, you sure can’t go wrong.  Far better than this microwave cake, which has a whopping 72g of fat (!!!), 2g of fiber and 16g of protein…  and refined flour and white sugar.

Takes a few minutes to make and a few minutes to “bake” …  run to your microwave.  NOW!  ;)

    Hello!

    I’m wondering what oven temperature you would cook this cake at and for how long? I don’t use microwaves at all but would love to try this!

    Thanks so much!

    Wow–I love the looks of this recipe!! Do you think all the flour used could be peanut flour? I’m not used to baking with peanut flour much, so I’m not sure how it might change things. :)

  3. dessertswithbenefits: February 25, 2013

    Peanut flour tends to make things really dense and rubbery, so I would recommend keeping the oat flour in there. Plus, the oats and peanut butter create a complete protein, while peanuts alone are an incomplete protein :)

    I haven’t tried making this in the oven, but I would guess it would bake at 350 for ~30 minutes? Or just until the surface is firm and springs back when tapped. I hope you like the recipe!

    Ahhh the perfect use for bananas!

    This looks delicious! Your microwave cakes make the best breakfasts! I can’t get enough of them, so it will be great to try a new recipe. I haven’t been able to find peanut flour anywhere, but I do have some PB2 powdered peanut butter. Is that the same thing? I hope it will work because I really want this for breakfast tomorrow.

    Hello,

    This sounds amazing. Banana’s and PB are two of my favorite foods. Unfortunately, I just found out I have an allergy to Banana’s. :( Is there something I can substitute for the banana in this recipe?

    Love your Blog!!

    Oh wow, a microwave cake with all the goodness of PB and bananas? I would definitely try!!

  10. dessertswithbenefits: February 26, 2013

    PB2 is similar to peanut flour, it just has a couple more ingredients while peanut flour is made from 100% peanuts. I haven’t tried this with PB2 but hopefully it works! :)

    This looks amazing. Bananas are one of my favorite foods ever. I can’t wait to try these.

  12. Denise & Laura: February 26, 2013

    I love your single-serving recipes. I just made this and it was very good. It reminded me of banana bread.
