Low Carb Chocolate Protein Mug Cake Recipe

One thing I love about this healthy recipe is that it is so easy and single serving so you can enjoy it every night or just when you are craving chocolate without having to make an entire pan or huge amount. This is a great night time treat because when it comes to nutrition your body needs more protein before bed, but you also don’t want to load up on a lot of calories or sugar. The great thing about having protein before bed is it keeps your body and muscle fueled so that at night your body does not go into “starvation” mode. So instead of having to get your protein from a protein shake or something like egg whites and chicken, you can enjoy a delicious Chocolate Cake with this healthy recipe!


The nutrition for this entire Chocolate Protein Mug Cake Recipe is:

Calories: 248
Protein: 18g

This is an example of a perfectly well balanced meal with the right macro ratio of carbs, fat and protein while staying all natural.

You will need the following ingredients:

-1 Tbsp. ABS Vanilla Protein Pancake & Baking Mix 
-3 Tbsp. Gluten Free Flour (You could also use almond flour)
-1/4 tsp Baking Powder
-1 tsp Stevia
-1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
-3 Tbsp Unsweet Apple Sauce
-3 Tbsp Unsweet Almond Milk
-1 Whole Egg
-1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

-Large Mug

Directions: Spray a large mug with non-stick spray and set to side. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: ABS Protein Pancake & Baking Mix, Gluten Free Flour, Baking Powder, Stevia, and Cocoa Powder. Mix ingredients together. Add in 3 tbsp. unsweetened apple sauce, 3 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk (you could use any kind of milk you prefer), 1 whole egg, and vanilla extract. Mix all ingredients together until batter is smooth. Pour batter into your pre-greased mug then microwave on high for 90 seconds (Make sure your mug is large enough that it will not cook over in the microwave). You may enjoy this directly from the mug or place a small plate on top of the mug then flip upside down to plate your single serving mug cake.

Optional healthy toppings: 1 tbsp. of almond or peanut butter, 2 tbsp. of Whipped Cream, 1 tbsp. of crushed walnuts, 1/2 cup of a healthy ice cream like (Halo Top, Arctic Zero, etc), fresh berries.
