Chocolate Protein Mug Cake

7 May

I will be making many of these while home this summer. Experimenting with all different flavors. They are seriously the best. So easy, just combine a couple of ingredients, put it in a mug, and microwave until done! Why wait to bake a dessert when you can just make this, single-serving one?!

Like I said previously, I told my mom I would help her get away from all bad foods and desserts, and cook her all clean dinners and desserts so that when she wants something sweet, she can eat it without guilt! And that’s when I came up with this..

It was inspired by a user called “Tasty Health” (http://www.tasty-health.se/). She makes some lovely mug cakes that are healthy as well! But I switched some things up, added some extras in, and came up with this lovely protein packed chocolate cake! And best thing about it, you make a fresh, hot one every single time, since it’s single serving! No more eating leftover desserts that have become hard and stale.

And no more feeling guilty about dessert when it’s this high in protein and low in carbs :) This is so healthy, it can even be breakfast if you’re in a sweet mood!

    Is there a way to make it less dry? I just made it, and its good but it’s really dry and hard to rip apart.

      Hmm, it may be the protein powder, as every type is a little bit different. If the “batter” isn’t like a cake batter consistency, then you will need to add either more egg whites or almond milk. Sorry for the bad result!
