The Best 60-Second Chocolate Protein Mug Cake For a Chocolate Fix

Life's Abundance

This 60-second chocolate protein mug cake makes any morning sweeter.

Calling all chocolate lovers who have limited time for healthy treats! Say hello to our latest obsession: the Chocolate Protein Mug Cake. This rich, gooey chocolate cake comes together in just under 60 seconds. Yes, only one minute.

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!


  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate Plant Protein Powder 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (your favorite gluten-free flour also works!)
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/16 tsp. fine sea salt, the smallest pinch
  • 1/4 cup preferred milk
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • fresh fruit, garnish
  • whipped cream, garnish

Life's Abundance

Life’s Abundance Chocolate Plant Protein is a decadent blend of cocoa, organic raw cacao, and premium plant proteins.


  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!
