Chocolate Chip Banana Bread in a Mug

Banana bread, is it a breakfast food or a dessert? You make the call. But I will tell you how to make chocolate chip banana banana bread in about five minutes--that's prep and bake time!

Recipe has been adapted from here.

Cooking spray
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
1 ripe banana, mushed
2 tablespoon chocolate chips

You will need a large, oversized mug for this recipe. The site I got the original recipe from did not forewarn me of this and this is what happened:

It's still delicious and cooked through, just a bit messy. So use a large coffee mug. Spray it with cooking spray. In the mug combine the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda . Add egg and mix well. Add vanilla, milk, and banana; combine well. Fold in chocolate chips.*

Microwave for three minutes. (Almost immediately it smells just like banana bread baking in the oven). Your mug is going to be very hot so make either let it cool in the microwave or be very careful when taking it out. Allow bread to cool before devouring.

*The chocolate chips kind of sink to the bottom of the banana bread. I don't mind this. It's kind of like a special treat at the bottom of the dessert, but fair warning.

Personally, I feel like this is a lot of banana bread. It's more than I can eat in one sitting. It's like a mini loaf of bread. So I dumped it out of the mug, sliced it, and shared it.
