Chocolate Protein Mug Cake

What is a protein mug cake? A protein mug cake is a single serve cake that uses a combination of protein powder, eggs (or vegan substitute), non-dairy milk and create a light, fluffy and gooey mug cake.

Unlike traditional mug cakes, protein mug cakes are super low carb, packed with protein and usually are made without flour or sugar.

We created a veganized version of the traditional protein mug cake – This fluffy and moist chocolate mug cake is made with Elevate’s Chocolate Brownie Protein Powder, and ready within 2 minutes. This delicious plant-based and sugar free chocolate mug cake tastes more like a chocolate cake dessert than a protein treat, but – It’s paleo, vegan, gluten-free and sugar free!

  1. Mix egg replacer with 4 tbsp of water until it is an egg yoke like substance, and place in a mug.
  2. Add Elevate’s Plant-Based Protein Powder, cocoa powder, stevia, baking powder, and 4 tbsp of almond milk. The mix will be thick (add more almond milk if needed). Be sure to keep thick enough so it cannot be poured out.
  3. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. You can eat it right out of the mug, or remove from the mug and slice into a cake!
