This recipe is a spinoff of my Biggie Microwave Banana Oat Cakes

And my Microwave Banana Oat Cakes recipe

But with blueberries.  

Mmmm, I love blueberries!

Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes



Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes


1 ripe medium or large banana, mashed

1/2 c dry oats (or a little more if you have an especially big banana)

1/4 c brown sugar (reduce as desired, or omit entirely, or replace with stevia)

1 Tsp Cinnamon (more if you love it)

1/4 c blueberries (frozen or fresh)

Optional: Dash of Vanilla Extract, 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds, 1 Tbsp of Coconut Flakes, 2 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder for a chocolate banana cake


Mash the banana

Add everything else except the blueberries and stir to combine.

Then, gently fold in the blueberries.

Spray a clean bowl with cooking spray and put the batter in it

Microwave for 3.5 to 4.5 minutes.  You will know when it’s done because it will not be “juicy” looking anymore and it may have some “holes” on the surface.

After mircowaving, allow to rest for a couple minutes.  Eat in that bowl or easily invert/remove from bowl and re-plate it, or take as a to-go snack.

Top with more blueberries, syrup, jelly, agave, nut butter, raisins, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, or nothing.

This is a fast breakfast or portable snack-cake.  Wrap it up and take it with you if you’re in a hurry.

Just be careful of all that blueberry juice staining your hands if you don’t use a fork.  There are worse problems to have, though.

You could top this with syrup.  Or blueberry syrup. How good would that be!Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes with slice taken out on plate with fork

Or just eat plain like I did.

Except Skylar took the bigger half and devoured most of it in record time.  Blueberry stained fingers and all!

From my last post on Fun & Productive, it was good to hear what you’ve done this weekend that’s been fun.  Or productive.  Or both.

Another take on blueberries + oats are these Muffins: Blueberry Streusel Muffins (Vegan and GF).

Baking rather than microwaving.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

One bowl and a spoon, no mixer required.  Nothing fancy or complicated about this recipe.

Someone always comment that they either don’t have a microwave or hate it.  So you can use the oven for these.

1. Best thing you’ve ate or done over the weekend?

Spending time with Scott and Skylar and splitting a blueberry banana oat cake.

2. Any Valentine’s Day plans?


3. Do you like blueberries?

I love blueberries!  They are so expensive to buy out of season (and really, how long is blueberry “season”) but Trader Joe’s has decent prices on fresh year round.  Of course, all stores have frozen berries year round.

4. Fresh or Frozen?  What do you use and when?

I never use fresh berries or fresh fruit in recipes unless it’s over-ripe or needs to be used up.

I bake, cook, or blend (smoothies) with frozen produce.

I save the fresh for eating!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
