Chocolate Almond Pretzel Mug Cake

Similar to my post last night, this is a chocolate protein version of the mug cake. It’s a snow day and I just finished doing an hour of zumba. What else is there to do but BAKE!? This is basically a no-guilt cake. Does it taste as delicious as a cake filled with butter and sugar??… no, but there is a nice feeling knowing you are putting something healthy in your body that will satisfy the “baked goods” craving. I would say, give it a shot.

You will need:

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • Chocolate almond butter (I used Barney Butter Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter)
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • Gluten free pretzels
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 egg white

Mix the protein powder with the baking powder first. Then add the 2 tbsp almond milk and the egg white. Add crushed pretzels.

Mix well and place in the microwave for 1 minute. If the cake gets high, stop the microwave for a second and start it again.

Cover the top with a big scoop (or 2) of the chocolate almond butter and top with crushed pretzels.
