I'm a huge fan of mug cakes.

They are just far too easy, delicious, and customizable not to love!

I mean heck, you can use any flavor of protein ... any sort of topping, and it's all done in 3-5 minutes tops.

I'm not really sure if it gets much better than that.

If you haven't tried a protein mug cake before ... allow me to introduce you to my favorite mug cake recipe.

It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Level-1 Protein Mug Cake

Protein Mug Cake


Optional Toppings:

  • Nut Butter
  • Almonds
  • Sugar-free Chocolate Syrup


1. Coat the inside of a large mug with cooking spray.

2. Add the banana to the mug and mash with a fork until it becomes a paste or has a smooth consistency.

3. Add in the protein powder, nut butter, milk, baking powder, baking soda, and chocolate chips. Stir until you form a batter-like consistency.

4. Microwave in 60 second increments, paying attention to your mug cake. Make sure it doesn't rise and spill out of the top. Cook time may vary. Typically, 2-3 60 second increments will get you the desired consistency.
