If you’re a fan of banana bread, you’re going to love this high protein banana bread recipe. As the title implies, it’s microwavable and super simple. You’ll need five ingredients max, and the cook time is just as short. Not to mention, one mini loaf, mug cake, or whatever you want to call it contains 27 grams of protein.
Before you get to the recipe, I’ll quickly add that I’m mad for microwavable protein desserts and sweets. If you enjoy this banana bread and want to try my other recipes, I’ll link a handful of my favorites below.

Check out this clip of the double chocolate banana bread to get an idea of how this recipe is. You’ll also see that I use a separate bowl for mixing, which can make your finished product a bit prettier.
