This noteworthy gluten-free banana beetroot coconut mug cake is beyond good; it’s sure to surprise unsuspecting palates. As the name suggests, this easy snack recipe for kids is usually made in a mug, which you cook in the microwave, with the end result being a moist mini banana beetroot coconut cake.
This easy snack recipe for kids is crammed with beetroot - it is the main ingredient and not just used in the name to make it sound like fancy health food! Beetroot is a unique source of betalains, which are a phytonutrient with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification benefits. It has been linked to cancer risk reduction and is a good source of fiber, manganese, potassium, copper, magnesium, phosphorous, Vit C, iron, and Vit B6. The color lends a beautiful depth to the cake.
We did not add sugar to the recipe as the bananas provide adequate natural sweetness and some amount of jaggery powder makes the dish perfectly sweet.
While it looks devilishly decadent, this easy snack recipe for kids is actually filled with good-for-you ingredients.
