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.


Single Serving Chocolate Mug Cake


  • 2 Tbsp chocolate protein powder (I used Ka’Chava brand)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 3 Tbsp water


  1. Add all dry ingredients to a mug or small microwavable bowl, stir.
  2. Add in egg whites, stir.  Add in water 1 Tbsp at a time, stir.
  3. Cook in microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes.
  4. Let cool then enjoy!


I topped this mug cake with Redwood Hill Farm Kefir, Essentially Coconut Butter Pecan Coconut Butter, shredded coconut and pomegranate seeds.
