Cookies & Cream Protein Mug Cake Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Quick, cookies, cream, healthy, AND delicious are all words you rarely see together (hmm). This Cookies & Cream Protein Mug Cake is PACKED with enough punch to destroy any sweet tooth out there.

Here is the recipe:

  • 6 Tablespoons (92g) Liquid Egg Whites (or 2 Large Egg Whites)
  • 3 Tablespoons (28g) Coconut Flour (or Oat Flour)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon (7.5g) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2.65 Ounces (75g) Fat Free Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or Cottage Cheese)
  • 4 1/2 (14.5g) Mini Cookies
  • 1 Tablespoon (6g) Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 Scoop (30g) Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Calories in the WHOLE recipe:

  • Calories: 440
  • Fat: 8g
  • Saturated Fat: 4g
  • Sodium: 344mg
  • Carbs: 43g
  • Fiber: 13g
  • Sugar: 18g
  • Protein: 49g

Crush up your Mini Cookies, add all of your ingredients into a bowl, and mix everything together. Take out a mug, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix into it. Microwave for :30, lightly mix everything around, and microwave for an additional :90. Mouthgasm!


  • Depending on how powerful your microwave is, you may need to microwave it less or more time. Keep checking it every :20-:30 so that it doesn’t dry out!
  • Make it chocolate by using Chocolate Protein Powder instead of Vanilla and 2 Tablespoons (10g) Cocoa Powder!
