Project Description

Apple Spice Protein Mug Cake


  • 1 large apple
  • 2 tablespoons of PB2 Performance Almond Protein Powder
  • 4 tablespoons of either wheat flour or gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of allspice
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 teaspoons of maple syrup or desired sweetener


  1. Peel and chop the apple into small (1/2-inch pieces). Place them in a ramekin and microwave for 1 minute.
  2. Combine the PB2 Almond Protein Powder, flour, baking powder, and allspice in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add the beaten egg, olive oil, milk, maple syrup, and apples, and stir well to combine the ingredients. The batter will be thick.
  4. Transfer the batter to a large, microwave-safe mug that holds at least 12 ounces, or two smaller coffee cups that hold at least 6 ounces.
  5. Microwave on high for 2 minutes and 30 seconds for the 12-ounce portion, or 90 seconds for each 6-ounce portion. If making the 2 (6-ounce) portions, microwave them individually.
  6. Remove the mug carefully, as the handle may be hot. Top with Greek yogurt, chopped nuts, and a drizzle of caramel sauce if desired.
  7. Enjoy!
