Delicious Chocolate Protein Mug Cake Recipe

This chocolate protein mug cake is delicious, healthy, and easy to make.

Who says you can’t treat yourself while also working towards your goals? Cake is one of those sweet treats that is hard to avoid while trying to eat healthier. That is why I created this delicious and healthy chocolate protein mug cake recipe. I am a firm believer in having things in moderation to avoid an inevitable set back. Unfortunately, a normal piece of cake is a hard thing for me to have in moderation. Because of that, I have experimented and made an easy and much healthier single-serving protein cake recipe. This cake can be made quickly in the microwave and also cooked in the oven.

What makes this chocolate protein mug cake healthier?

The healthy recipe replaces all the traditional sugars and flours used to make a cake. It uses higher quality ingredients and uses protein powder as its base. While it is not necessarily a low-calorie food, this chocolate protein mug cake is high in protein and much easier to make part of a healthy diet. This can be used as a treat or post-workout snack. Either way, it will curb any person with a sweet tooth who has goals but also wants to enjoy the sweeter things in life while keeping it healthier.
