Fudgy Protein Mug Cake
Maybe you’ve heard of cakes that you make in a microwave? Can’t lie, the first time I saw a recipe for a mug cake I dismissed it immediately. How can you make anything with the taste and consistency of cake in just a few minutes? But I have quite the culinary curiosity, so I set out to test the theory. Results? You can make a grain-free cake in a mug in minutes in the microwave… and it’s DELICIOUS!
It’s time for the cutest, fastest, healthiest little chocolate mug cake you’ll ever see. This is the first mug cake recipe I’ve ever created and I have been making it over and over because it’s easy, tastes delicious–like actual chocolate cake–and is made with a protein powder that has a short list of ingredients that I pronounce (beef isolate, cocoa, stevia).
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 scoop [url href=”https://heyrachelmarion.com/recommends/protein-powder/” target=”_blank”]pureWOD BUILD protein powder[/url]
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 egg
- Toppings of choice (optional)
- Whisk the ingredients together in a mug until smooth.
- Microwave for one minute. Depending on your microwave, the mug cake may be done after just 60 seconds (check if the top has any dark gooey spots… a sign it is not completely cooked). Microwave for an additional 30 seconds if needed.
- Add toppings such as nut butter, shredded coconut, cacao nibs, etc.

This looks perfect for the abundance of sugar cravings this time of year! Great Nike picks too.
Oh myyyyy! That mug cake looks immense <3 And just wow how stunning do you look?! I need to find a Lulu Lemon store near me… oh and that Nike Indy bra is gorgeous! This is like some weird sort of CrossFitters porn haha!
When i first heard of mug cakes, i thought : what the heck?! but now, I love them and i am always trying new flavors. Can’t wait to try your version!
I know, I can’t wait to try other versions!
The recipe looks amazing, I love the idea of mixing my favorite treat with protein to keep me going through the day.
The coconut flour and egg really make it filling!
I’m a little obsessed with workout gear these days so I love all the looks! The sports bra and pants from Nike are my favorite! Nike’s stuff is so comfortable and wears so well. Awesome recipe! It looks great and sounds easy to make since it can just be popped in the microwave.

Nike’s stuff is super cute, yep!
How many grams of protein powder do you use? Since we don’t all use the same brand…(I hate when bloggers do this – “one scoop of this” or “one can of that”. We don’t all use the same stuff! Precise measurements are more helpful.
Also … is it possible to bake this in the oven? Do you know what temperature and for how ling?
