banana bread in a mug

For Fat Tuesday I wanted to create a healthy festive Mardi Gras treat that was tasty but kept me on track with my health and fitness goals! This is, tasty, ready in minutes,  and individually sized so there won’t be a ton left over.


1 scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder (I used chocolate)

1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut flour

1/2 cup mashed banana

1 tablespoon of nut butter (I used almond butter)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of baking powder

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 egg (whisked)

1 tablespoon of unsweetened almond or coconut milk

*optional toppings unsweetened shredded coconut and/or raw pecan pieces


In a large mug place protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and stir. Next add mashed banana, vanilla, nut butter, whisked egg, and milk. With a large spoon mix all ingredients until ingredients are completely blended together.

Place in microwave for 60 – 90 seconds. Make sure the middle is cooked completely. If not stir and place back in for 30 more seconds.

Remove and top with optional toppings and maybe one more dash of cinnamon.
