Protein single serve cake

This is one of my favorite mug cakes to make & is very versatile. You can pretty much use any flavor of protein power you want. Thank you #TheBigMansWorld for sharing this recipe.

A super fluffy and moist vanilla mug cake made with protein powder and is low carb- It’s also ready in under a minute! This healthy Keto Vanilla Mug Cake takes less than a minute to make in the microwave or 12 minutes in the oven- It’s paleo, vegan, gluten-free and sugar free!

How to make a vanilla mug cake with protein powder

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients and mix well. Add your wet ingredients and mix very well, until a thick and smooth texture remains.

Step 2: Transfer your vanilla mug cake batter into a greased mug or microwave-safe cereal bowl. 

Step 3: Microwave the protein powder mug cake for 1-2 minutes, or until ‘just’ cooked. Remove from the oven and enjoy immediately! 



For the microwave option

  • Grease a microwave safe bowl with cooking spray and add the protein powder, baking powder, coconut flour, sweetener of choice and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix into the dry mixture. Add the milk of choice and vanilla extract- If the batter is too crumbly, continue adding milk of choice until a very thick batter is formed. 
  • Optional: Top with chocolate chips and microwave for 60 seconds, or until just cooked in the centre.
