Banana Almond Microwave Muffin

From start to finish, this took under 5 minutes to make! :] It may not look the most appetizing, but it’s great as a grab-and-go breakfast. I threw all the ingredients into a mug before going to school for my morning workout, microwaved it and bam! There you go. :O I didn’t want to microwave it for much longer, lest it get all dry and difficult to eat. Two minutes seems like the perfect consistency–moist and tastes just like banana bread (which it pretty much is)! The guy sitting next to me asked if that’s what it was and said it smelled amazing.

This is another one of those crazy meal-replacement calorie bombs, but…so many nutrients and good fats! :] It’s much better than many alternatives out there!
