  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3 chopped strawberries
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • good shake cinnamon


  • 1 large dollop almond butter
  • 1-2 dessert spoons Greek yoghurt


  • In a large mug, mash the banana, add the egg and whisk well with a fork.
  • Add the oats, chopped strawberries, vanilla & cinnamon and mix together.
  • Cook in the microwave on full power for 2 minutes. If it's still a bit gooey in the middle, cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove from the microwave when cooked, make a small well in the centre and add the almond butter.
  • You can eat straight from the mug, or transfer to a bowl and top with some Greek yoghurt as well.



These mugs are great for a quick and easy dessert too! Especially when you make a chocolatey mug.
Simply swap out the oats and strawberries for 1 dessert spoon each of almond meal and cacao powder.
