Choc Mud Mug Cake with Rich Chocolate Yoghurt Frosting (Clean Eating, Gluten Free, Lactose Free)

Here’s another fun mug cake recipe for you all.  These, like protein pancakes and protein balls are so fun and easy to create.  This one is yummy and moist and even better with my yummy clean eating frosting!!  Give it a try, this was my afternoon tea that I took with me on the school pick up run and ate this in the car!  I called this a mud mug cake (bit of a mouthful hey?!)  as it has 3 forms of chocolate flavouring.


Choc Mud Mug Cake

1 egg, beaten

1/4 banana, mashed

1 Tbsp flaxmeal

1 Tbsp chocolate protein powder

1.5 tsp cocoa

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp vanilla essence

1 Tbsp plain chobani greek yoghurt

1 Tbsp melted 85% dark chocolate


Mix all ingredients together and transfer to a greased mug (grease with coconut oil).  Cook in microwave for about 1 minute 20 seconds (1000 watt microwave).   If you dont want protein powder I would just replace this with extra flaxmeal or almond meal.


Rich Chocolate Yoghurt Frosting

1 Tbspn plain chobani yoghurt

1 Tbsp almond butter

1 tsp cocoa

2 tsp chocolate protein powder (or use 1 tsp honey if you wanted to avoid protein powder)


Mix ingredients together and spread over the top of your cake (or eat from the bowl…..its so yummy!!)   This should be the consistency of a thick peanut butter.
