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! 🙂
