How much calories is a mug cake?
There are 270 calories and 25 grams of protein per one mug cake. I doubled the ingredients for my oatmeal and got 3 mug cakes. This way I was able to make my oatmeal serving smaller with less calories. Now I can enjoy it as a high protein snack or have more variety by adding one more small meal to make it 500 or 600 calorie breakfast or lunch.
What will you need to make a healthy mug cake?
- Old fashioned oats
- PB2 – powdered peanut butter, for extra protein
- Collagen Peptides – optional. If you want to increase the amount of protein is a great way. It only has 35 calories per scoop and 9 grams of protein.
- Liquid egg whites – you can also separate egg yolks from egg whites and use yolks to make a custard (recipe in my angel food cake post)
- Sugar free syrup – I mix Mrs Butterworth and Skinny syrups.
- Monkfruit sweetener
- Greek yogurt – I use non fat because it has less calories and more protein. There is no difference in flavor and it is worth to save some calories.
- Baking essentials: baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract, cinnamon
How to make a healthy high protein mug cake
Into Nutribullet, put 6 tbs of liquid egg whites (100 g). I buy them in a container at Costco. To that I am going to add 1 cup of old fashioned oats (82 g).
2 scoops of collagen peptides, good way to increase your protein without messing with protein powders.
Add ¾ cup (150 g) non fat Greek yogurt and ¼ cup sugar free syrup (40-50g)
2 tbs monkfruit sweetener (30 g), ½ tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp baking soda, ½ tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend well. Add 1/4 cup (50g)(1.75oz) PB2
Combine until smooth. Divide into three 8 oz ramekins
I have here 1 small apple, about 3 oz (84 g). You can leave the skin or peel it. Cut up in small dice pieces and spread over the batter. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon.
Bake at 350F (180C) for 30 minutes.
