Grasshopper PROTEIN Mug Cake Recipe

Grasshopper Protein Mug Cake Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

This Grasshopper Protein Mug Cake only takes a couple minutes, is packed with 12g of fiber + 48g of protein, and tastes even better than it looks! If grasshoppers tasted this good, I’m pretty sure they’d be extinct!

Here is the recipe:

  • 6 Tablespoons (92g) Liquid Egg Whites (or 2 Large Egg Whites)
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons (28g) Coconut Flour (or Oat Flour)
  • 2.65 Ounces (75g) Fat Free Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or Cottage Cheese)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Mint Extract
  • 1/2 Serving (15g) Mini Marshmallows
  • 1/2 Tablespoon (7.5g) Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Calories in the WHOLE recipe:

  • Calories: 432
  • Fat: 8g
  • Saturated Fat: 5g
  • Sodium: 368mg
  • Carbs: 42g
  • Fiber: 12g
  • Sugar: 19g
  • Protein: 48g

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


  • If your mint extract isn’t green then add in a couple drops of some green food coloring!
  • Depending on how powerful your microwave is, it may take more or less time!
  • Use a bowl if you don’t have a mug!
