Blueberry Lemon Protein Mug Cake
I remember when mug cake first became a thing about 5 years ago, or so. It was really a genius idea - a single serving dessert that’s low in sugar, high in protein, tastes fresh-baked, but only takes a minute, or two to cook in the microwave. By substituting protein powder for a fair amount of the flour, and using stevia in place of the sugar, you can have your cake and eat it too. Even while on a strict diet! What’s not to love about that?! I became an instant fan just like everybody else. Honestly, it’s one of those trends I hope never dies.
The success I’ve had trying to veganize several versions of protein mug cakes has been mixed. Which is why I made it a must to come up with my own to share with you! So if you decide to try it, please spread the love and don’t forget to tag me, @lafemmevegan in your posts!
I also didn’t want to make a basic vanilla or chocolate cake. So I took advantage of the sick line up of vegan-friendly flavors that Tru Supplements carries and used their Blueberry Muffin protein powder to create this Blueberry Lemon cake recipe. If you’re missing the warm weather months, this is like taking a bite of summer!
Even if blueberry isn’t your thing, the organic blend of rice and pea protein in Tru bakes really well and with just 2 carbs per serving, there’s no extra fillers, or sugars you don’t want to add.
