1-Minute Microwave Whey Protein Mug Cake
- 1 scoop whey protein powder (any flavor)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- In a microwave-safe mug, add the whey protein powder, baking powder, all-purpose flour, and cocoa powder. Use a fork or spoon to mix the ingredients together until well combined.
- Add the unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup or honey, and vanilla extract to the mug. Use the fork or spoon to mix everything together until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.
- Microwave the mug cake on high for 60-90 seconds. Start with 60 seconds and check the cake to see if it's done. If it's not done, microwave it for an additional 15-30 seconds until the cake has risen and the surface is set.
- Once the cake is done, remove the mug from the microwave and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
- You can enjoy the cake as is or top it with your favorite toppings such as whipped cream, nuts, or fruit.
This recipe is super simple and easy to customize. You can experiment with different flavors of whey protein powder or add mix-ins such as chocolate chips or chopped nuts. Enjoy your delicious, protein-packed mug cake!
