This moist, fluffy, easy to make mug cake is Paleo friendly and low in sugar.  Perfect for a quick, healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.




  1. Combine all ingredients in a large microwavable cup or small bowl and mix well.

  3. Remove from microwave and cool a few minutes.
  4. Add favorite toppings and EAT!


*This mug cake will work with any of the Nuzest protein powders.  I have not tried any other protein powder brands, but substituting with a different Vegan protein powder should yield similar results.  Use my affiliate discount code "bakeitpaleo" for 15% off any Nuzest purchase.
