Sometimes, even when your training is going well, it can be all too tempting to pop to the local shop and stock up on some chocolate bars, cakes and/or crisps. Well, stop before you get to the door and just make sure you have these few simple ingredients in your cupboards. This easy to make Mug Cake, made with whey protein, is a much better option than any of those naughty choices and takes a matter of minutes to whip up.
Mix the above ingredients in a large mug until you get a thick batter. Cover the mug with a plate if you want but if you don’t, keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t overflow). Microwave on a medium setting for 1:00-1:30mins; don’t let it get too dry.
Top with something if you want and then enjoy. If you time it right, the gooey texture of this cake makes it an awesome treat, with less of the guilt.
Despite the benefits we’ve learned about protein powders, not all of them are keto-friendly. Just like any product for people on a low-carb diet, you need to read the label closely to make sure you’re not consuming added carbs and sugars.
