Breakfast is the meal I care about the most. Why? Because my kids almost always eat a good breakfast…lunch is iffy….and dinner is a challenge. So, I am always trying to come up with new and creative ways to make breakfast fun, delicious, and most of all healthy! I’ve seen a million recipes out there for “mug cakes” and finally decided that I would give them a go as a healthy paleo breakfast cake. Took some experimentation (and I still haven’t mastered them without the use of a microwave!), but this recipe was a big hit! It seriously could not be any easier either.
- 1 can coconut milk — where to find
- 3/4 cup coconut flour — where to find
- 4 eggs
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Put all ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until smooth
- Pour into greased ramekins
- Nuke in the microwave for 2 minutes per ramekin, or 8-10 minutes for the whole batch at once*
- Invert on a plate and top with your favorite toppings. We love homemade whipped cream, berry sauce, maple syrup, or sliced peaches
- Makes 6 cakes. You can store them for up to three days in a sealed bag in the fridge to heat up for another morning too!
*Note: we haven’t used our microwave in YEARS, but I tried making this recipe in the oven and it took forever! So, just this one time we decided to give the microwave a go. Once I find a quicker method of doing it in the oven, I will be sure to update this post.
