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.

Miracle Paleo Banana Bread, gluten free, grain free, sugar free

Makes 2-3 servings 


  • 1/2 cup of gluten free golden flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon of gluten free baking powder (tiny bit of grain)
  • dash of salt
  • 1 small ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon gluten free pure vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • dash of gluten free pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 packet of Stevia
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped

  1. In a large microwavable coffee cup, mix the ingredients well until incorporated.  Your batter will be thick and should only fill your cup about 1/2 full.
  2. Microwave on High for apx 2 1/2 - 3 minutes
  3. The bread will rise higher than the cup and then fall back down.  Don't overcook.
  4. Remove from the microwave and let sit for a minute.  
  5. Turn out the bread on a rack and cool a few minutes more.  We like ours warm. 
  6. Slice and enjoy!!
