Ingredients

  • 30 grams chocolate protein powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • egg whites from 1 large egg


  • Instructions

  • Spray a (microwavable) mug or small bowl with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine all ingredients in mug and microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave for 1 minute, stir around batter again and microwave once more for 30 seconds. If cake still appears wet, microwave for about 15-30 more seconds.
  • Enjoy straight from your mug or transfer to a small plate and top with fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, whipped topping


  • **Nutritional information will vary some, depending on brand of protein powder used.

    I also tried substituting the mashed banana for 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. It worked really well, but was less sweet.
