You can make a protein brownie in a mug on those days when you need something sweet but don’t have time to make one.
To prepare the cake, simply combine dry ingredients like protein powder, all-purpose flour, baking powder, instant coffee powder, cocoa powder and sugar in a bowl. Combine all the dry ingredients by using a whisk or a fork until evenly distributed.
Then add wet ingredients such as oil and almond milk to the dry ingredients, and mix until they form a thick batter (add a tsp of dark chocolate chips if desired).
Grease a 12oz microwave safe mug. Pour the batter into the pre-greased coffee mug.
Cook in the microwave on high for 75-90 seconds or until cooked through. (If your microwave is weak, you may need slightly longer cooking time). Let the cake cool a bit before serving. Enjoy your delicious chocolate protein mug cake warm, dust with powder sugar or serve with your favorite toppings!
