So I’m always trying to find new ways to make the most of my food, the more the better right? So today I made protein mug cakes. I’ve already shared the love on these and have got fellow dieters on to them. Why have a shake when you get have warm solid food? These mug cakes take minutes to make depending how you cook them and can be topped wih anything that fits your macros. Trust me, you won’t go back.
What you need: one scoop of your favourite protein. I use My Protein chocolate banana whey, it’s the best I’ve ever tasted and works well in any recipe. Next, add half a teaspoon of baking powder and half a teaspoon of xantham gum. This is a trick my coach taught me, it makes everything thicker and a bit more substantial! Next up, add a splash of water and mix together. You should have a thick paste. Here’s where you add what you like. I like to add a teaspoon of walden farms peanut butter spread and mix it in slightly, because I’m not allowed peanut butter and I miss it so much! I also add 2 squares of 85% dark chocolate broken on top sometimes depending on the meal. You could add syrups, chocolate chips or real peanut butter if you’re lucky! Next, pop in the microwave for about a minute or in to two cupcake holders and in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them either way because if you overtook they can go super dry.
Once they’re done, that’s it! Simple as that. Add whatever toppings you like. My favourites are lashings of walden farms syrups and dips and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You could try berries or add some whey hey ice cream for a protein desert.
Whatever you do, you can make them as guilt free or indulgent as you like. Here’s a few I’ve made before. Experiment, enjoy! Let me know if you find any good combinations, always keen to try new things! Xxxx
