PB2 Protein Mug Cake - The Craving Killer

The fascination with mug cakes is winding down. But in the  health and fitness  world they still have a practical place.

Have a craving killer with out packing your body with over processed junk and sugars.

I posted this one on Instagram and didn't think much of it until I thought about my clients and friends who ask me for advice. I think this one is a great way for those who are trying to learn to manage their new life style. Or a great mug cake for the heck of it!

1/8 Cup Natural Cocoa Powder
2 TBS PB2 (With or Without Chocolate)
1/4 Cup + 1 TBS Unsweetened Almond Milk (Vanilla or Plain)
1 Egg
1 TBS Stevia in the Raw (if you use liquid use conversion chart on product)
1/2 Scoop of protein powder (Vanilla or Chocolate, I used EAS Lean 15)
1 TSP of ON Fitness Fiber *Optional

1 TBS of PB2
Splash of Almond Milk

Mix all your mug ingredients in a bowl. Pour into a well greased mug or ramekin. Nuke up to a minute. I start off at 45 seconds, and check for consistency. Too long will give you a heavy dried up brick!
While it is in the microwave mix up your frosting with the PB2 and start off with a dribble of almond milk. Keep adding until you reach the consistency you'd like.

*I did add 'ON Fitness Fiber' as an option. When you add more add in's be cautious of how much liquid you add. More things you add, more milk or water you will need. You will want it to look like brownie batter. If it looks a little thick then it will become a brick. Just add a splash when you need it.
