Wow! I am currently living without an oven but I love baked goods, so it has been a struggle. This solves everything!

Mmmm, love this! Such an easy breakfast on-the-go!

This recipe is great for anyone living on their own. It is always a struggle to not waste food, so this recipe is perfect.

Good idea! I think I'd have to do a double batch so I didn't end up with 1/2 a leftover banana, though. Has anyone tried this with chocolate chips or other additions?

With a few tweaks, this could be a stunning vegan recipe.

Mug recipes are so convenient and this sounds delicious! You could even add chocolate chips for an additional sweetness.

I eat bananas every single day, so it's not a far stretch to turn it into mug banana bread! Looks amazing!

This looks good for single person cooking.

I love how quick and easy this is. I'll definitely be trying this out.

Living in a dorm, I love mug recipes. They're quick, easy to make, and keep the portions under control. Can't wait to add this one into the rotation.

Wow, I didn't know bread in the microwave was possible! I bake banana bread all of the time, to use up my bananas that have gone bad. This sounds like a great alternative when I don't have an hour to bake, but still want to enjoy some yummy homemade bread.

I love banana bread, but it takes almost an hour to bake ( This seems like a much easier option

This mug banana bread was a breeze to make. I would definitely make this again.

I loved every bite of this! SO much easier than making a whole loaf of banana bread, but the same great taste! With almonds added on top, it's perfect!
