Perfect for hectic mornings or late-night cravings, this easy recipe is protein-packed and vegan-friendly. Top it off with a rainbow of fresh fruit or a sprinkle of nuts and you’re on your way to a sweeter, healthier treat.

Pro tip: Go big, or go home! Use a larger mug to give your cake room to rise and load up on toppings (we used an 18-ounce). And nobody likes a messy microwave, so keep it clean with a paper towel underneath to catch any overflow.

Grab your favorite microwave-safe mug and let’s get cooking!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate Plant Protein Powder 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (your favorite gluten-free flour also works!)

  • whipped cream, garnish

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, unsweetened cacao powder, Chocolate Plant Protein Powder, coconut sugar, baking powder, and sea salt in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add the wet ingredients: milk, melted coconut oil, chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir with a fork until smooth and combined.
  3. Pour batter into a greased, microwave-safe mug with enough room for the cake to rise.
  4. Make a small divot in the middle of the batter and pour in the chocolate chips.
  5. Microwave for 45 seconds, and then at 10-second increments until cooked with a fluffy and firm texture. (Be careful! The mug will be hot.)
  6. Top with your favorite toppings. We love a dollop of whipped cream and fresh raspberries for a tart twist.

And there you have it - the easiest, tastiest, and healthiest treat you can make in under 60 seconds. Remember, this recipe is more than just food. It's about enjoying the little moments, indulging in your cravings smartly, and sprinkling joy into your daily routine. Go ahead, try it, and let your mug cake be the highlight of your day!

Chocolate Gingerbread Recipe: Healthy Holiday Sweets


Life's Abundance

Indulge in the magic of the season with this Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies recipe, where festive flavors mix with a healthy protein boost.


Holiday festivities and sweet treats go hand in hand. As the temperatures drop and homes light up with twinkilng decorations, what better way to welcome the season than with a plate full of scrumptious chocolate gingerbread cookies?

Introducing our delightful take on the beloved gingerbread cookie. By adding our signature Chocolate Plant Protein, the beauty of this recipe comes from its taste and nutrition. It’s a holiday melding of the rich flavors of chocolate and warming spices from gingerbread - all topped off with the healthy benefits of plant protein. It’s all here in this chewy, gingerbread recipe!

Baking Notes:

  • Opt for coconut sugar to add a deep caramel undertone, or switch to light brown sugar if that’s what you really love.
  • If you’re watching your sugar intake, go for 100% cacao chocolate chips or chop up a cacao bar. The pure, unsweetened goodness from cacao perfectly complements the sweetness of honey or maple syrup used in the batter.
  • Whether you're steering clear of gluten or not, this recipe has room for your favorite all-purpose flour or a gluten-free blend.
  • Don’t forget the sparkling touch of sanding sugar for that festive crunch.
  • Remember, the magic lies in the details, from the shine of the egg wash to the thickness of your dough.

Chocolate Protein Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

Makes about 28 cookies

  • 4 cups of your favorite all-purpose flour
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Plant Protein
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp. allspice
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 large eggs, cracked
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, plus 1 Tbsp. water, beaten (for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup sanding sugar (for garnish)

 


Life's Abundance

Life’s Abundance Chocolate Plant Protein is 100% grain free and combines organic raw cacao with non-GMO coconut oil powder for the ultimate smoothness.


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Add the flour, chocolate protein powder, cacao powder, cardamom, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt to a large bowl. Whisk, and set aside.
  3. Add the butter, coconut oil, and coconut sugar to a stand mixer or handheld mixer and cream for three minutes until fluffy. Add the eggs, molasses, and vanilla extract and beat for one more minute.
  4. Add the dry ingredients slowly and until just combined. This is a very thick dough, so we recommend using the paddle attachment or mixing by hand. Chill the dough in a covered bowl or airtight container for at least four hours or overnight.
  5. Roll out the cookie dough with a rolling pin to 1/2 inch thick on a large parchment-lined sheet, to avoid sticking to the counter. Cut with a gingerbread cookie cutter. Repeat this process with the rest of the dough, and refrigerate in between to maintain the shape.
  6. Place the cookies two inches apart on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Carefully brush with the egg wash, and sprinkle with sanding sugar (about 1/4 tsp. per cookie).
  7. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until puffy and cooked through. Note: They will be soft.
  8. Let them cool on a baking rack for 20 to 30 minutes and store in an airtight container for three days or freeze for up to three months.

This holiday season, bake memories that are delightful with a nourishing nod to your protein intake. Start with this recipe and spread the festive cheer - one chocolate gingerbread cookie at a time!

Superfood Chia Pudding Recipe


Life's Abundance

The great thing about this recipe? Make it your own with your favorite toppings or mix-ins.


Looking for a quick and healthy breakfast packed with a nutrient boost from your favorite greens blend powder? You’ve found it! This overnight chia pudding is super simple and can be prepped in just a few minutes (minus the fridge time).

Enjoy it in the morning or as a late afternoon snack. It’s best when made the night before or given a few hours to sit so the chia seeds can absorb the milk.

This is a “make-it-your-own chia pudding recipe” so you can play with it until it becomes your go-to favorite. Start with any plant-based milk you like. Full-fat canned coconut milk will make it rich and creamy - almond milk will keep it on the lighter side. Just don’t skip the step of mixing the Greens Blend and milk in a blender until smooth; this creates a creamy texture without any clumps.

The fun part? You can mix in or top this superfood recipe with any of your favorites. Here are a few of our favorite combos, but the options are endless!

  • A scoop of Greek yogurt, frozen berries and a bit of honey
  • Sliced banana, a spoonful of almond butter and granola on top
  • Warmed seasonal fruit with a drizzle of maple syrup

Don’t forget to take a pic and tag us @lifesbundance on social media so we can share your creation.

Instructions:

  1. Add the Greens Blend and milk into a blender for 30-60 seconds, until well combined.
  2. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until combined, then stir every few minutes for about 10 minutes so the chia seeds don’t clump.

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night.” - Old Irish Proverb

To celebrate the wisdom and quick wit of the Irish, we’ve come up with a fun, green drink for you to enjoy on this cultural celebration (no, it’s not green beer). The great thing about this iced matcha latte is you can use any fresh berry you like, and when mixed with our tasty Greens Blend, the result is an antioxidant-rich drink made for enjoying on your porch in the morning sun.

They say if you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough. But even if you’re not Irish, when you whip one of these up, you’ll feel nourished and lucky to have found a healthy treat you can indulge in.

To get those pretty clouds and swirls in your drink, add the ingredients to your glass one by one. But if you’re short on time, you can always put everything in a blender for a quick, frozen version of this matcha latte recipe. Luck of the Irish to you!

Ingredients

1/2 cup fresh berries
1 tsp. honey
1 cup hot water
1 tsp. scoop Life’s Abundance Greens Powder
1 tsp. matcha powder
1/2 cup preferred milk
1/2 cup ice, garnish

Instructions

  1. Add the fresh berries and honey to a jar or bowl and crush them with a hard wire whisk or fork.
  2. Pour the Greens Blend and matcha into a large heat-proof mug or jar and blend with a foamer for about 20 to 30 seconds. Let the mixture cool to room. (Blender method: You can also use a blender for 20 to 30 seconds, but be mindful if the liquid is hot.)
  3. Add the berry mixture, ice, milk, and the cooled matcha mixture to a glass one by one to create a swirling effect.

The recipe features our Greens Blend, a mix of non-GMO, raw grasses, plus certified organic mushrooms that perfectly complements matcha. But honestly, there’s no grassy flavor here, outside of the natural flavors of matcha (which is meant to be a little floral and grass-like). This easy-to-use powder has a subtle berry flavor and provides with you with fantastic nutrition, while still tasting delicious.
