Protein Mug Cake Ingredients


  • All Purpose Flour- This recipe turns out best with all purpose flour but you can use gluten free flour too.
  • Granulated Sugar- Brown Sugar can be used instead of granulated sugar.
  • Cocoa Powder- Any type of unsweetened cocoa powder can be used.
  • Chocolate Protein Powder– Any type of chocolate protein powder will work.
  • Egg White- You can use fresh egg white or 2 tbsp of egg white from a carton. You can also use flax seed egg to make the mug cake vegan.
  • Vanilla Extract- Any type extracts can be used like vanilla, coconut, hazelnut or even pistachio extract.
  • Chocolate Chips- You can use milk, dark or semi sweet chocolate chips.

Tips For Making The Best Protein Mug Cake

  • Be sure to properly measure your dry ingredients.
  • Make sure to use a large microwave safe mug . As long as your mug has a capacity of 12oz. or more, you are good to go.
  • Cooking time may vary according to your microwave. Different microwaves are of different watts. The higher the watts the faster your mug cake will cook.
  • To make the mug cake more delicious, top it with fresh banana slices, whipped cream and/or chocolate syrup.


  1. Whisk together 1 Tbsp flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, Tbsp cocoa powder, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1/4 tsp baking powder, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Add in 1/4 cup water, 1 large egg white, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Stir together with a whisk together until smooth.
  2. Pour into a 12 oz or larger microwave-safe mug and sprinkle 1 Tbsp of chocolate chips over the top of the batter if desired.
  3. Heat for 50-60 seconds then check the doneness. If the batter is still liquid in the center, heat for an additional 5-10 seconds then check it again. Repeat until your mug cake is cooked through the center. I personally like it to still be gooey on the sides!
  4. Let the cake cool for a couple minutes (or else you will burn your tongue – trust me!!), then top with your favorite toppings and enjoy warm! Peanut butter, whipped cream, or chocolate sauce all work great as a topping.
