Breakfast (or snack) was never more decadent - or nutritious!
Since peanut butter and chocolate is one of my all-time favorite combinations, this is my go-to protein mug cake recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Shakeology Mug Cake Recipe
Enjoy a delicious, warm chocolate peanut butter "cupcake" totally guilt-free.
Prep time: 2 mins
Cook time: 1 min
Total time: 3 mins
2 Tbsp. almond milk
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I like Shakeology or Syntha-6 - see current price on Amazon here)
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
In bowl, beat egg and add almond milk. Stir until well-mixed.
Add protein powder, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Stir until mixture forms a batter.
Spray a large, microwave-safe mug with cooking spray. Pour in batter.
Microwave for approximately 1 minute 30 seconds. I check the mug cake after 1 minute because I like mine a little gooey like the photo.
When done, turn out onto a plate, top with peanut butter and enjoy! In a pinch, you can eat your mug cake right out of the mug!
