Hi friends!

So yesterday I was desperate for something healthy and quick. Normally, I would make a protein waffle, but I was wondering what else I could make. I have recently been using Whey chocolate protein and hemp seeds in about everything I make, and I love how healthy and tasty they are. Hemp is a fantastic source of omega-3s and protein!


I went on Youtube for a minute to see if I could find something quick, easy but also healthy. This chocolate mug cake showed up. The original recipe is from the Protein Chef! He’s got a fun Youtube channel btw, all the recipes are protein based.


I have tried mug cakes before but to be honest with you, they never turned out right. I thought why not give it another try.


I didn’t have all the ingredients in the original recipe, so I got creative and substituted few things. The result was a surprisingly delicious, and super filling chocolate cake.  And of course, I had to share it on the blog 🙂

What I love about this cake is that it’s SUPER QUICK! And you know what, you can literally serve this to your guests and no one will know it was baked in a microwave.

I mean have a look, can you tell?

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 some gluten-free flour. I like to stay away from grains for health purposes #backpainproblems, but you are free to do whatever you want! Oat flour would work and is a cheaper and healthier alternative. If you’d like to go fancier, I would get some almond or coconut flour!

PS: I use Natural Factors Whey Protein and Manitoba Harvest Natural Hemp Hearts.
