Why Make this Recipe?
You don't want to miss out on this super easy microwave protein mug cake recipe!
Weight Watcher Friendly - This easy protein mug cake recipe is only 2 points on my WW app for this entire sweet treat.
Since the new Weight Watchers plan is personalized you will have to input the ingredients used into your WW app to get your exact WW personal points.
Easy to Make - Preparing this single-serving cake requires only 3 simple ingredients and 2 minutes of cook time.
Ingredients needed and substitutions:
Protein Powder - We used Orgain Organic vanilla protein powder for this single serving dessert. You can use favorite brand of protein powder and flavor. Try chocolate protein powder for a chocolate mug cake recipe.
Milk - We used 1% milk for these protein cakes but you can use unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, non-dairy milk or even oat milk.
Desserts typically tend to be high in carbohydrates and fats. Adding protein powder allows you to create a more balanced macronutrient profile, ensuring that your sweet treats provide a mix of carbohydrates, fats, and protein.
How to Make a Protein Powder Mug Cake
1: In a microwave-safe mug or ramekin combine your protein powder, egg and milk and mix well.
2: Place your mug or ramekin in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes on high.
3: Check doneness by inserting a toothpick, if it comes out clean ready to eat. If you are having chocolate cravings sprinkle a couple of dark chocolate chips on top. Enjoy!!

- Choose a Quality Protein Powder: Opt for a high-quality whey protein powder or plant-based protein powder to ensure your mug cake has a good protein content.
- Gluten-Free Option: For a gluten-free mug cake, use almond flour or coconut flour instead of traditional flour.
- Balanced Sweeteners: Combine the natural sweetness of maple syrup with the lower glycemic index of coconut sugar for a healthier sweetener profile.
- Perfect Texture with Almond Flour: Almond flour adds a moist and nutty texture to your mug cake, making it a perfect gluten-free alternative.
- Cocoa Richness: Enhance the flavor with cocoa powder for a rich chocolatey taste in your mug cake.
- Baking Powder for Fluffiness: Add a pinch of baking powder to achieve a light and fluffy texture in your mug cake.
- Mindful Use of Coconut Oil: Use a small amount of melted coconut oil for a moist mug cake with a subtle coconut flavor.
- Enhance Flavor with Vanilla Extract: A dash of vanilla extract elevates the overall flavor profile of your mug cake.
- Boost Protein Content: Mix in a scoop of your preferred protein powder for a higher protein mug cake, perfect for those looking to increase their protein intake.
- Experiment with Peanut Butter Powders: For a nutty flavor and added protein, consider using peanut butter powders in your recipe.
- Healthy Fats from Almond Butter: Swirl in a dollop of almond butter to introduce healthy fats and a creamy texture.
- Chocolatey Indulgence: Sprinkle in some melted chocolate chips for a gooey, indulgent touch.
- Sea Salt for Balance: A pinch of sea salt enhances the overall flavor balance, complementing the sweetness of the maple syrup.
- Coconut Sugar Tip: Since coconut sugar has a lower sweetness level, you may adjust the quantity based on your preference.
- Mindful Microwave Use: Microwave in short intervals to avoid overcooking, ensuring a moist and tender result.
- Quick Mixing: Don't overmix the batter; a few lumps are okay, and it helps maintain a better texture.
- Personalize with Toppings: Consider toppings like a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of your favorite ice cream for added decadence.
- Temperature Control: Let the mug cake cool for a minute before digging in to avoid burning your tongue and to allow flavors to meld.
- Portion Control: Keep the serving size in mind; mug cakes are a delightful treat, but moderation is key.
