Miracle Paleo Banana Bread, only 3 min in the microwave


I saw this super simple method of making Paleo Flax bread on YouTube awhile back.  I adore Flax and couldn't wait to try it!  The first try was a little boring so I revised the original recipe and now I love the results.  Awesome for breakfast when you want something fast and high protein.  It's pretty miraculous how great it tastes! and perfect for a Paleo diet if you are eating bananas.   Flax is very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Thiamin and Manganese. You get calcium, iron, a whole days worth of Dietary Fiber, low carbs, no sugar (except the natural sugar in the bananas) and 13 grams of protein in only 3 minutes time!  
The bread comes out soft and moist with a light sponge texture.  Don't worry it won't spill out of the cup when you cook it.  It will raise up, look very scary and sink back down.  I used a big cup that is 4 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches high.
