Single Serving Chocolate Mug Cake

Mug cakes have been a favorite of mine for years.  They are super simple, require few dishes, minimal ingredients and are perfect for a healthy sweet tooth craving.

I typically make mug cakes using protein powder.  This helps me get more protein in my diet and adds just enough sweetness that I don’t need any additional sugars or sweeteners.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is just one of many possible variations.  This Single Serving Chocolate Mug Cake only uses 6 ingredients: protein powder, cocoa, coconut flour, baking powder, egg whites and water.  It is low carb and considered Paleo depending on the protein powder you use.
