1 Minute Protein Mug Cake

Protein Mug CakeAs the dad of a toddler, there isn’t a lot of time to be making fancy desserts to satisfy those random sweet tooth cravings. Not to mention I can’t bake to save my life…

So what does someone with  no time and no baking skills do when they want a quick and easy dessert?

My friends, meet…the 1 minute protein mug cake!

Not only is this super simple and fast to make, it’s also a great protein snack that (I think) is also slow carb friendly. At the very least, it’s a great easy way to up your protein if you’re not really a protein shake type of person.

Protein Mug Cake Ingredients

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 5-10 drops liquid stevia (depending on sweet you like things) or any other sweetener available

Instructions To Make Your Protein Mug Cake

  • Mix together all of the ingredients in a mug
  • Heat in the microwave for 25 seconds (give or take), or until the middle is cake-like and the top and edges are slightly running. ***Since all microwaves are slightly different, start with 25 seconds to test out, and put back in for a few more seconds if necessary. Make a mental note for your future baking.
  • Get your fork and start nomsin!
