I found myself craving something sweet after dinner but I knew my options were limited. After looking in the pantry I found a bag of coconut flour and saw I had a ripe banana and instantly thought of creating a microwave mug cake --- mostly because I wanted to attend my sweet tooth as soon as possible!This banana blueberry mug cake comes together in under five minutes and is bursting with blueberries and totally satisfied with craving without the need to add any added sugar, it is vegan, and gluten free! It requires minimal ingredients and can be prepped in advance. This makes a great breakfast, snack and dessert!If you’re looking for something more decadent you can always sprinkle in a few chocolate chips or top it with ice cream or whipped cream. I also enjoy using crunchy natural peanut butter in this recipe as the peanuts add an extra layer of texture in it. I hope you enjoy making this recipe! For more delicious recipes check out my blog:

Mix all your ingredients in the same mug/small dish you will be using in the microwave for less clean up!

The consistency and texture is absolutely perfect and the blueberries add some great moisture to this recipe. Since the blueberries do release their juice in the microwave, I do not recommend using frozen berries as they might make the cake too wet if they are not thawed beforehand.
