Ingredients
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I’ve only tried this with whey.)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg white*
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • sweetener, to taste (I used 5 drops liquid stevia)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dark chocolate (optional, but do it because chocolate it never the wrong answer)
Instructions
  1. In a mug, combine the protein powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder. Add in the egg white, vanilla extract, and almond milk and stir until completely combined. Sweeten to taste. Stir in chocolate, if using. Microwave on high for one minute. If the batter raises over the mug, stop the microwave and continue cooking in intervals. Devour.
Notes
*Use an egg replacer, such as Ener-g brand or a flax egg, instead of the egg white for a vegan option.
