How to make blueberry banana mug cake
This healthy banana mug cake mug cake is made in a microwave, you can also make it in the oven though. I have included the method for both:
In a small mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, coconut sugar and cinnamon and mix together.
Then add your egg, mashed banana, plant based milk and mix until fully combine.
Then fold in the blueberries, keep a few aside to add on top
Transfer the mixture to a mug or ramekin and add the remaining blueberries
Microwave for 50 seconds and carefully remove (the mug will be really hot).
Pour the mug cake batter into a small oven safe dish and bake at 350/175c for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Blueberry Banana Bread Mug Cake Sustitutions
You can sub the oat flour for buckwheat flour, sourgum flour, spelt flour and quinoa flour. You can try other flours but the texture will come out differently.
The coconut sugar can be subbed for any granulated sugar. The dairy-free milk for cows milk and the chia egg for a normal egg.
Instead of using blueberries you can try chocolate chips, raisins, other berries or nuts.
