German Chocolate Protein Mug Cake Recipe

Craving a piece of decadent chocolate cake after dinner? Rather than baking for hours, mix up this 60-second German chocolate mug cake, instead. The single-serving size means you won’t be tempted by seconds. Plus, the whole-wheat flour, coconut oil and chocolate protein powder in this treat make it a healthy alternative to many butter-packed pastries. Did we mention it’s only 250 calories? Add a dollop of almond butter or coconut whipped cream if you’re in the mood for a dairy-free topping.
