- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- Tablespoon of Splenda or low-calorie sweetener of choice (optional)
- Spray coconut oil or similar (for coating mug or bowl)
- Spray a large microwave-safe mug or small bowl with coconut oil.
- Add all the ingredients to the mug or bowl and mix together. Be sure to mash up the banana with a fork or whisk. A slightly soft, speckled banana works best.

- Allow to cool for a minute, slip the cake out of the mug or bowl, add the optional topping below, and enjoy.
