Hemp Heart Protein Powder Mug Cake

This is a tried and true, easily customizable mug cake recipe. It can be adapted to be a vegan mug cake or gluten free mug cake with minor adjustments. You will need a high-walled or extra large microwave-safe mug for this recipe, or you can cut the ingredients in half for a smaller mug cake. The high-walled mug is crucial so that you don't overflow in the microwave cooking process.

When made with a nut-based flour blend (like the gluten free almond-based flour shown in the picture below) this mug cake contains 20 grams of protein - on par with or better than most store-bought protein bars. Plus, this way you can be in control of the sugar content. We promise this protein mug cake is just as tasty without the 4 Tbsp of sugar, or you can substitute a more natural sweetener such as honey or molasses.

Protein Mug Cake Ingredients


  • 1/4 C all purpose flour (or gluten-free flour blend)
  • 5 Tbsp Anavii Hemp Protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C milk (or plant milk substitute)
  • 2 Tbsp softened or melted butter (avocado butter for vegan substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp any other mix-ins to taste such as blueberries or chocolate chips


  1.  Let the butter soften or microwave the butter in your mug until soft. Melted is fine but may result in a slightly different texture mug cake.
  2. Add your dry ingredients (flour, hemp protein powder, salt, and sugar) into your mug. Give a brief mix with a fork (shown below).

  3. Add your wet ingredients next, skipping the butter if you used the mug to microwave the butter already. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add in any other mix-ins you would like. Blueberries are shown in our pictures. Gently mix.
  5. Microwave on high in two separate intervals for approximately 1 1/2 minutes each. Keep an eye on it to make sure the mug cake does not run over the lip of your mug. If you let the cake rest a little between microwaving times, you should be able to avoid any mess.
  6. Feel free to top with peanut butter, honey, or any other desired toppings! Enjoy (preferably somewhere peaceful).

Mug Cake with Protein Powder

We know you will enjoy this mug cake using protein powder whether you use it for a post-workout snack or a regular every-day treat. Feel free to customize it to your needs and tastes - it really is very versatile (especially due to the unflavored Anavii Hemp Protein).
