Most people who I know that are into fitness have tight schedules. Constantly being on the go makes eating clean a struggle. With loads of junk foods to tempt our always hungry bellies, it’s so hard to stay on track!

Thus, I have created a high protein recipe that you can throw together in 1 minute. And guess what?! It’s chocolate.

I present to you: MUG PROTEIN BROWNIES! All that you need are the ingredients listed below, a microwave, a mug, and a spoon to stuff your face with. 225 calories and 32 grams of protein? Yes LAWD!

Did I mention that this recipe is gluten free? Well, it is. You’re welcome.

Enjoy, loves.

The Recipe

I’ve said it once, and I will say it again! Optimum Nutrition is THE BEST brand for whey protein powder on the market. I never and will never take anything else!

Packing in not just 24 g of protein, but also 6 g BCAAs, and 4 g glutamine. What more could you want? Get your tub of this amazing product here.

Throw these ingredients together in a large mug, stir, and microwave for 1 minute. Voila! A tasty, high protein treat for you in just minutes. Curb those cravings (for me, it’s alllll about CHOCOLATE!) and stay on track.

  • 1 scoop Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein Powder in chocolate
  • 1 tbsp cup cashew (or almond/coconut) milk
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (or less, depending on how chocolatey you want it!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp stevia
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

Be sure to watch it in the microwave! Depending on your microwave’s wattage, the brownie may want to boil over.
