Love this recipe as an evening snack because it is full of protein to keep you sleeping all night and light on fast burning carbohydrates. It is the perfect portion also so don’t double it no matter how yummy it tastes. Did I mention it is light on the dish washing cleanup also? Quick and easy!
I have just the thing to celebrate: PUMPKIN PROTEIN MUG CAKE!
Tis’ the season for all pumpkin everything, right? What’s greatest about this is that you can make it in a dorm easily! Here you go:
In a mug (or bowl) mix:
1/2 scoop of your favorite protein powder (I used 100% whey vanilla)
1 egg (egg whites work too, 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup of pumpkin (canned, 100%)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp brown sugar (a little more if you have a mega sweet tooth)
1 tsp cinnamon
Toss it in the microwave for 1.5-2 mins. Just make sure that egg is cooked and your cake is light and fluffy!
I tossed some chocolate chips and extra cinnamon on top too! 🙂
