Chocolate Protein Mug Cake - Macro Friendly Recipes

Monday, 1 June 2020

Long time no see.

Today I'm back with a new little series of recipes - starting with my single-serve chocolate protein mug cake! I have a huge sweet tooth and as much as I love indulging in food, sometimes I'm looking for food that tastes indulgent but fits within my macros and aligns with my fitness goals.

This is where my macro-friendly recipes will come in - it's a series of my favourite recipes that are macro-friendly, easy to make and taste absolutely delicious - there are no compromises on taste here! If you too want to feed your sweet tooth and not compromise on your fitness goals you are in the right place! I'm so excited to start sharing these and hope you are too!


This protein rich chocolate mug cake is 100% my go-to when I'm craving something indulgent but want something wholesome and protein-rich at the same time! It tastes like a chocolatey banana cake, is high in protein, quick and made from simple household ingredients! Wins all round!

1 egg
1 mashed banana
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use Awesome Supplements Choc salted caramel)
1 tsp cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt

  1. Mash the banana and mix with the egg.
  2. Then add in the protein powder, cocoa powder, baking powder, sweeter, and salt.
  3. Mix until smooth
  4. Put in the microwave to cook for 2-4 mins depending on the power of your microwave.


I find microwaving for 2 mins gives a softer and fluffier consistency, whereas 3-4 minutes gives a firmer consistency. 

I prefer mine microwaved for about 4 minutes, as I prefer it firmer and find it has a more chocolatey taste.

Depending on your protein powder and sweet tooth level (mine is strong) you can also add a bit of sweetener.

I use vegan protein for this recipe, however, if you're using whey protein I'd recommend adding a bit of water or milk to add some moisture, as I found whey makes the recipe quite dry.
