Double Chocolate Protein Mug Cake

When you’re craving something sweet, sometimes the only thing that will do is cake. Luckily there’s a way to get a satisfyingly sweet snack when the craving hits without having to bake a whole cake, and you can even add some extra protein to the mix.

Mug cakes are super easy to make and while the single serving can be cooked in the oven, the quickest way to have your cake and eat it too is to use the microwave. Make sure that you only use microwave-safe mugs for your double chocolate mug cake.

Double Chocolate Protein Mug Cake

Our recipe is a spin on Erin Lives Whole’s Chocolate Protein Mug Cake. The original recipe calls for oat flour, but you can use any type of nut flour to keep the recipe gluten-free and for a little extra protein. 

For this delectable dessert, we recommend using either vanilla-flavored protein powder or Allo’s Natural unflavored protein powder. If you do use Allo Natural, you might want to add a few drops of vanilla extract to the recipe. 

Just like with the flour, feel free to use any type of plant-based, dairy-free, or traditional dairy milk. You can also substitute the sugar for a dry sweetener, or use a different type of chocolate chip other than semi-sweet.

Experiment with dark chocolate by adding a pinch of salt and using the caramel flavor of Allo or make it a blondie with white hot chocolate mix instead of cocoa powder, vanilla flavored Allo and white chocolate chips. 

Don’t forget to top things off with your choice of whipped cream, ice cream, caramel syrup, peanut butter, or more chocolate chips. 

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 packet of Allo Natural or Vanilla
  • 1.5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or dry sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoon chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients except the chocolate chips in your mug.
  2. Add milk and mix until well combined
  3. Stir in half the chocolate chips then layer the remaining chips on top.
  4. Microwave on high for 60-80 seconds or until the batter expands to the top of the mug. Keep an eye on it after 30 seconds and check every 10 seconds until done.
  5. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
