This Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Microwave Bread Pudding for one is about as easy as it gets! Make it in a mug or ramekin.
This sweet Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Microwave Bread Pudding is perfect for when you don't feel like baking and you want a small portion.
Even though this vegan bread pudding is sweet and listed in my dessert category, it would be perfect for brunch as well.
A mix of banana, peanut butter, and almond milk makes the bread all soft and gooey, just what you'd expect in a bread pudding.
Chocolate chips are sprinkled throughout creating pockets of chocolaty goodness. Slices of banana are layered in between cubes of bread creating more gooey sweetness.

❤️ Why You'll Love It
- It's sweet and rich.
- It's healthy and comforting.
- It is perfect for a late-night craving when you want dessert without having to bake.
- Bread: I used gluten-free brown rice bread. Use your favorite bread.
- Almond milk: I used unsweetened almond milk because I like to control the amount of sweetener.
- Banana: I used a ripe banana. A variation without banana is my Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Microwave Bread Pudding.
- Peanut butter: I used all-natural peanut butter. You could also use shelf-stable peanut butter. You could also use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter.
- Maple syrup: Adds sweetness. You could also use agave syrup, date paste, or brown sugar.
- Salt: Enhances sweetness.
- Chocolate chips: You could also use dark chocolate baking chunks.

Step 2: Slice the bread into cubes.
Step 3: Place half the bread in a ramekin. Top with the rest of the banana.
Step 4: Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Step 5: Layer more bread and the rest of the banana.
Step 6: Pour the banana peanut butter mixture on top. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top. Let sit.
Step 7: Microwave for 2 minutes. Let sit for 2 minutes.
- You may want to mix the banana, peanut butter, and almond milk without sweetener first. You may not need maple syrup if your banana is riper than mine.
- Let the bread sit for 10-15 minutes in the banana-peanut butter mixture before heating it up so that the bread soaks up the liquid. Even though gluten-free bread is quite dense, it soaks up a lot of liquid.
- If you're a fan of almond butter, use that instead.
- Remember that all microwaves are different. You may need more or less time than I did.
- If you want to make several bread puddings at once, I would suggest placing the done ones (in their ramekins) on a baking sheet. Then put them in the oven at a low temperature to keep them warm while you make each one.
