A gooey, filling snack that is quite healthy, but needs drastic improvements! It took 5 minutes to make without a recipe and needs altering/improving. If anyone knows how it could be better, please tell me!


  • 1 small banana
  • 5 tsp flour
  • 1 small egg (I used half a large egg)
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 3 tsp butter
  • Cinnamon as you like it
  • 1-2 tsp raisins
  • 3 tsp milk
  • Pinch of baking powder


  • STEP 1
    Mash the banana in your mug with a fork, until smooth.
  • STEP 2
    Add egg, milk and butter (wet ingredients) before mixing well.
  • STEP 3
    Add the remaining (dry) ingredients, making sure you put the baking powder in last and mix it all together.
  • STEP 4
    Put in the microwave on high for 2 minutes or more. NOTE: I put my mug in for 2 minutes, the mix was spongey and gooey. Either this was because of the banana making it really moist, or it was undercooked.
