Easy Righteously Spiced Banana Bread Mug Cake in a Minute

Did you know that Marie-Antoinette never actually said, "Let them eat cake"? This common misattribution instead originates from the writings of philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau – a man who, much like our Righteously Spiced philosophy, appreciated the richness of life and the deeper flavors of existence. Just as Rousseau sought depth in his thoughts, we seek depth in our flavors, combining food, faith, and fulfillment in every recipe.

Indulge in the comforting flavors of Righteously Spiced Banana Bread, now in a convenient microwave mug cake form. Enhanced with the creamy richness of oat milk, this recipe promises a quick, flavorful treat that's perfect for any time of the day.


  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (substitute with almond flour for a gluten-free option)
  • A pinch of baking soda for lift
  • A sprinkle of our signature cinnamon and nutmeg blend
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg infused unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons oat milk
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • Optional add-ins: chocolate chips or chopped nuts for texture

Tip for Bananas: If your bananas aren't ripe enough, you can quickly ripen them in the oven. Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Place unpeeled bananas on a baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the skins turn black and the bananas soften. Let them cool before peeling and mashing. 

it's recommended to let them cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes before mashing. This cooling period serves two primary purposes:

  1. Handling Safety: Freshly baked bananas will be very hot, and allowing them to cool makes them safer to handle, reducing the risk of burns.

  2. Texture and Consistency: As bananas cool, they become slightly firmer, making them easier to handle and mash. Mashing bananas while they are too hot can be messy and might lead to an uneven texture.

Keep in mind that the exact cooling time may vary depending on the size of the bananas and the actual temperature they reached in the oven. It's best to wait until they're comfortable to touch. If you're in a hurry, you can speed up the process by placing the bananas in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Just be careful not to chill them too much, as very cold bananas can affect the texture of your banana bread.


  1. In a microwave-safe mug, mash the banana.
  2. Stir in the melted infused butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and oat milk.
  3. Add the flour and baking soda, mixing until just combined. Fold in any optional add-ins.
  4. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, watching to avoid spillage.
  5. Allow the mug cake to cool slightly, then enjoy your quick and flavorful treat.
