Protein Cake.. made in a mug? Yes, it’s true!
This is the perfect post-workout treat and it takes literally minutes to make!
This Protein Mug Cake is the balance of carbs and protein to replenish energy stores and help to rebuild muscle.. and did I mention that it also tastes incredible?! Adding the coffee part is completely optional.. you could add cocoa powder, vanilla, sweetener or just keep the recipe simple and leave it out!
P.S you don’t have to work-out to enjoy this ‘healthy cake’ – it makes the perfect snack any time of day.. I’ve even had it for breakfast!
- 25g rolled oats or oat flour
- ~30g/1 scoop protein powder*
- 1 tsp coffee granules - optional
- 90ml (1/3 cup + 1 tsp) milk (any type!)
*I use Protein Dynamix Whey Protein.. use NIC10 for 10% off!
Mix all the ingredients in a deep bowl or mug.
Microwave for 2 minutes (if the mixture rises after 1-1.5 minutes just push it back down!),
Eat straight from the mug or tip onto a plate (allow to cool slightly & loosen the edges first before tipping it out) and enjoy with a dollop of yoghurt mixed with white hot chocolate powder (my choice!) or PB2** sauce :)
