Sweet Potato Banana Mug Cake is so quick and easy to make out of super healthy and delicious ingredients.
Sweet Potato Banana Mug Cake is Sweetly (almost) Sugar-Free!
It uses sweet potato and banana instead of refined sugar and lots of processed flours (it does use a little).
The calories are just a little lower than in other mug cakes I’ve made. It’s a delicious dessert but is also a great breakfast, too! This makes enough for two people using these amounts. If you want more or less just adjust the amounts accordingly.
Like many mug cakes, the texture is less cakey and more like a bread pudding. To make it, just mash the sweet potato and banana with a fork until they’re smooth and creamy.
Add a little flour, baking powder, vanilla, some stevia if you’re a sweet freak like me, and some chopped chocolate and pecans.
Bam. Two to three minutes in the microwave and it’s a hot tasty mug full of cake. Share it unless you’re super hungry or make half the recipe for one.

Sweet Potato Banana Mug Cake is Sweetly Sugar-Free and so quick and easy to make out of super healthy and delicious ingredients. It uses sweet potato and banana instead of refined sugar and lots of processed flours (it does use a little).

In a large mug OR a small mixing bowl, mash the banana, sweet potato, applesauce, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

Gently fold in the chopped chocolate and pecans.
This can be mixed up in the mug this will be baked in or mixed in a small bowl and then placed in a mug. The second way makes a neater-looking mug cake but also an extra dish to wash!
If desired, add a couple of chocolate pieces and pecans on the to before cooking.
Microwave for about 2 minutes. Check the mug cake and, if needed, microwave in 30-second increments until the center is firm-ish. Enjoy!
