Are you craving something sweet and decadent but want to stick to your health-conscious goals? We’ve got the perfect solution for you – a High Protein Mug Cake that’s not only delicious but also packed with nutritious ingredients. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through a delightful treat that includes Greek yogurt, coconut flour, and low-calorie chocolate chips. It’s the ideal dessert for those moments when you need a bit of indulgence without the guilt.
The Magic of Greek Yogurt and Coconut Flour
Most dessert recipes load up on butter and sugar, making them calorie bombs that can derail your healthy eating habits. However, our High Protein Mug Cake has two secret ingredients that transform your craving into a healthy delight.
- Greek Yogurt: This creamy and rich ingredient takes the place of butter, contributing lusciousness and moisture to our recipe without piling on the calories. Not only that, but it’s also an excellent source of protein, helping you stay full and satisfied.
- Coconut Flour: If you’re looking to boost your fiber intake and go gluten-free, coconut flour is your new best friend. It’s high in fiber, which keeps you full and satisfied, and it adds a delightful texture to your mug cake.
Unmistakable Fudgy Chocolate Flavor
Now, let’s talk about the star of the show – chocolate! The High Protein Mug Cake is all about delivering that undeniable fudgy chocolate goodness. For this, we’ve chosen Lily’s Sweets chocolate chips, sweetened with Stevia and slightly lower in calories than regular chocolate chips. So, you can indulge in your chocolate cravings without worrying about a sugar crash later.
High Protein Mug Cake Recipe
Here’s how you can create your own guilt-free, high protein, and chocolatey mug cake:

- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
- 1 egg white OR 1 flax egg
- 4 tablespoons milk
- Chocolate chips (We used Lily’s)
- Start by selecting your favorite microwave-safe mug.
- In the mug, combine the chocolate pea protein powder, cocoa powder, coconut flour, sugar, and baking powder.
- Add Greek yogurt and an egg white (or flax egg for a vegan option) to the mug. Mix everything until well combined.
- Pour in the milk and give it another good stir until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.
- Now, top it off with a generous sprinkle of chocolate chips (the more, the better!).
- Microwave your mug cake for 1.5 to 2 minutes or until it’s firm in the center. If you prefer it gooey in the middle, aim for 1.5 minutes.
