I wish I could be baking right now, half because I like love desserts and half because the oven warms up my entire apartment.  I’m weird and like my apartment SUPER WARM…  like, if money and energy were no issue, I’d have it at a constant temperature of 78-80℉  😉

Unfortunately, I’ve been really busy and only have time for quick meals and snacks.  I feel like I haven’t been in the kitchen for weeks.  I’m creating content for other companies as well as Desserts With Benefits, I’m busy editing photos and cooking videos, and I’m trying to stay on top of answering emails and responding to comments and DMs.  Guys, this is so much harder than you think…  especially when you get 100+ per day, and you want to take the time to respond to each and every one with the care and time each deserves.  If you skip a day, then that’s just more on your plate for tomorrow  🙁

Last week was a whirlwind, and this week will be too.  Last week was full of meetings (literally one every single day), but I also got to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday by taking him to see his favorite band (The Killers!).

This week, I’m traveling to New York for the BlogHer Health Conference.  I don’t even own any winter clothes anymore, so this trip should be fun!  *nervous laugh*

In my book, quick meals = quick desserts, so I have been back to my mug cake 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.  I could eat this every single day.  It doesn’t taste healthy in the slightest!

    Pinning!

  3. I enjoyed so many of your breakfast cakes and loafs lately but my old microwave not so much… I have to get a new one now and make this cake asap!

  4. Hi,

    Tried this one, the texture, taste was perfect. Mine just turned out little less soft & spongy.
    just replaced almond milk with coconut milk.

    But still delicious. Thanks 🙂

  5. Jess, I am grain free, so what can I use instead of oat flour?

  6. I have almost all of the ingredients! SO stoked to try making this!

    Instead of peanut flour, can PB2 be used?
