Ingredients (Makes 2 Mugs)

  • Mix It Up: Slowly whisk in the unsweetened almond milk. Your batter should form effortlessly. Feeling adventurous? Stir in vegan dark chocolate chips for an extra layer of richness.
  • Microwave Magic: Microwave on high power for about 90 seconds. Keep an eye out for the cake rising to its maximum height. Remove with care; it'll be hot!
  • Check and Serve: Make sure your Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder Pack Mug Cake is moist and soft. Serve immediately and enjoy the burst of flavors and protein!

Optional Baking Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Grease an oven-proof ramekin and follow the same batter preparation steps.
  • Bake for 12-18 minutes and voila, your oven-baked Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder Pack Mug Cake is ready!

Expert Tips

  • Switch out oat flour for all-purpose or coconut flour for varying textures.
  • This recipe works best with Rookie's Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder, but feel free to experiment with Chocolate!
  • All crystal sweeteners like sugar, coconut sugar, and date sugar are fair game. Go keto with allulose or erythritol.


Opt for this Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder Mug Cake for a convenient, nutritious, and irresistibly tasty treat. It's the perfect way to integrate a healthier lifestyle without compromising on flavor. Enjoy!
