The best vegan protein mug cake!

Protein packed?
Fiber filled?
Decadent chocolate?

I got you covered! Some form of microwave cakes have taken social media by storm and honestly I’m not a fan of everyone I tried. Plus getting the right texture minus the eggs… yeah a bit harder. This recipe can be made in a smaller ramekin that is microwave-safe. It comes together in about 3 minutes. You can omit toppings or add whatever you love. Whipped cream. Ice cream. I typically top with jam or like photographed here, a protein vegan yogurt in vanilla flavor. So indulgent without being too much. Let’s get this one started!
