Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 3 Tbsp White whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp Strawberry protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 tsp Honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk

Topping options:

    Cream cheese "frosting"

    • 1 Tbsp Reduced-fat cream cheese softened
    • 1 Tbsp Strawberry protein powder
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Greek yogurt
    • Truvia to taste or sweetener of choice

    Greek yogurt "frosting:

    • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Greek yogurt
    • 2 Tbsp Strawberry protein powder
    • Truvia to taste or sweetener of choice

    Instructions

    • In a medium bowl, stir together the white whole wheat flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
    • In a small, microwave safe bowl, melt the honey and coconut oil in the microwave (about 30 seconds.)
    • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the honey mixture, Greek yogurt and almond milk. Stir until smooth and well combined.
    • Lightly spray a mug (mine was 12 oz) with cooking spray and pour the batter in. Microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds, watching the microwave closely to make sure that your cake isn't exploding.
    • Let cool for 1 minute and stir together topping of choice in a small bowl.
    • Top with "frosting" and DEVOUR

    Notes

    Everyone's microwaves are different, so yours may need less or more time as each microwave can give different results. Mine is 1000 watts and was perfect at 1 minute and 10 seconds. I would suggest try that and watching it closely while it cooks. Then, if it's still a little wet after 1 minute and 10 seconds, try microwaving it in 10 second intervals until it's done :)
