I just want ya to know, this Protein mug cake recipe is AHHHHMAZING! I know you will enjoy it as much as I do! I used the chocolate Pure Isolate Whey Protein by Ironmade Nutrition which is tres magnifique. You can order that here and use my discount code: PamelaJ to save 10% off everything you order from them. I am a ginormous fan of their protein powders and they have graciously sponsored our Facebook Live events for the month of August so I am also super grateful for them!

Here are the deets. You will need:

-1 scoop of Ironmade Nutrition Pure Isolate Whey in your favorite flavor I used chocolate

-1 tsp unsweetened cocoa

-1/4 tsp baking soda

-4-6 drops of stevia (optional)

-1/4 cup cashew milk

Directions for Making this Delicious Protein Packed Dessert:

Spray a small mug with Pam then add all ingredients and mix well.

Microwave for 1:00 and if you like, top it with a tsp of natural peanut butter, some walden farms chocolate or caramel syrup, some fresh berries… your imagination is our only limit!

This decadent treat is under 150 calories without the peanut butter… not too shabby! And if you are watching calories but love peanut butter like I do, try taking a little PB2 and mixing it with a little water then add that on top for the perfect flavor combination minus all of the added calories from fat!
