Made with pantry ingredients, this vegan chocolate protein mug cake comes together in just 5 minutes! Each serving packs 13g of plant-based protein.
Why would you want protein in your mug cake?! It sounds weird, I know. But anyone who has been on a fitness or weight loss journey has likely heard of how important adequate protein intake is for building and maintaining muscle which in turn boosts your metabolism and helps you burn more fat.
The beauty of this recipe is that it allows you to have your cake and eat it too. It’s moist, chocolatey, lightly sweet and can be a part of a well balanced diet that prioritizes protein intake. I like to serve it with a small scoop of melty vanilla ice cream for ultimate chocolate protein mug cake bliss.
