How to make low-carb banana bread mug cake

Print this recipe
Sometimes a banana bread craving hits and you just have to have it right now. A banana-enriched mug cake is the perfect solution. Mug cakes can be made in a single-serving size and mixed, cooked and served in a single coffee mug. Plus they take less than five minutes to prepare. The low-carb recipe below is one of my favorites.
Banana bread is best when you use bananas that have gone a little past the perfectly ripe stage, and this recipe is no exception. The chopped nuts are optional, but they give the cake some nice, crunchy texture. Occasionally I cheat and add a spoonful of mini semisweet chocolate chips, too!
