Mug Cake Recipe

Protein Mug Cake

It’s the end of the day and you have lots of protein and carbs left to hit, but very little fat.  You’re not in the mood to down a cup of plain egg whites, you definitely have a sweet tooth, and who DOESN’T love cake?!?

Protein Mug Cake to the rescue!


25g Core Nutritionals MRP in Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie

1/4 cup Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Macros: 25 Carbs/ 3 Fat/ 17 Protein

How to:

Coat a microwave-safe mug with non-stick cooking spray. Using a whisk, mix all three ingredients directly in the mug. Microwave on high 45 seconds to 1 minute depending on preferred consistency. I microwave for 1 minute and the cake comes out formed, yet still soft.  If you like more of a gooey center, shorten the cook time.

Enjoy with a side of fresh fruit and top with cinnamon. Or, go all out and add peanut butter, sugar free syrup, or Nutella! This cake tastes similar to a pancake and my 5 year old approves! He requests Nutella to top it, of course. Enjoy!
