I love supplementing with protein powders but I just can’t drink protein shakes. And a while ago I started using protein powders as a flour substitute for almost everything and it works amazingly well.

I’ve used protein powder to make waffles, pancakes, muffins and a ton of recipes you can find here. My recipes are all low carb and high in protein.

How To Bake A Mug Cake

I use the microwave to bake the mug cakes which only take about 2-3 minutes. You can certainly use the oven but I find the microwave to be extremely convenient because I can use a regular mug and it only wakes a couple of minutes. This cake took me about 2 minutes to bake.

I like to mix everything in a bowl before adding it to the mug. But I’ve also mixed everything in the same mug before and it didn’t get stuck to the mug or anything.

What I also love about the microwave technique is the cake turns out very light and fluffy. It’s just a no-excuse way to prepare a healthy snack with whatever ingredients you have at hand.

The ingredients are so simple, I’m gonna share them with you below!

Just one more thing before I jump to that. If you don’t have Whey protein, I would use about 1/4 cup of oats or oat flour. You can also add almond or coconut flour to the mixture. They are both low in carbohydrates.
