Looking for a healthy dessert that can be made in minutes and with only three ingredients? Look no further. This 3 ingredient protein powder cake is a guilt-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is delicious, packed with protein, and does not require added sugar. Plus, it can be made in a single bowl, which means easy clean-up. My only advice is to use a deep mug so that the cake does not overflow while cooking. 

I used chocolate egg white protein powder. If you are vegan, you can use chocolate vegan almond protein powder. If you do, substitute the egg for ¼ cup of soft (silken) tofu.

Why drink wholesome?

This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein. 

Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard mug cakes are you willing to make? 

Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder. 

We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.

Now without further ado, here is the best 3 ingredient protein powder mug cake. 


-1/2 cup drink wholesome chocolate protein powder

-1 banana (peeled and mashed)

-1 large egg


In a small mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Transfer the batter to a greased mug and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the mug from the microwave and enjoy your cake immediately! You can check the consistency of the cake by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
