Indulge guilt-free while keeping your protein intake on track with our easy :90 Second Protein Whey Cake recipe!
This microwave cake is not only quick and delicious but also packed with nutritious ingredients. Start by grabbing a mixing bowl big enough to hold your cake mix and a microwavable bowl in the shape you desire.
In the mixing bowl, add
- 1 1/2 scoops of your favorite Healthy Heights Chocolate protein powder flavor,
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon,
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (optional if you prefer a different flavor),
- 1 packet of your preferred sweetener,
- 1 1/4 servings of just add water pancake mix,
- and 3-4 tablespoons of water.
Slowly mix the ingredients together, adding water gradually until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Be cautious not to make the mix too watery, so monitor the consistency as you add water.
Coat your microwavable bowl with non-stick cooking spray and pour in the cake mix.
Place the bowl in the microwave and cook the protein whey cake for 1-2 minutes (or approximately :90 seconds) until it rises.
Keep in mind that microwave cooking times may vary based on the power of your microwave.
Once cooked, remove the cake from the microwave, let it cool, and gently flip it onto a plate. It should easily come out of the bowl if done correctly.
Now comes the fun part – indulging in your creation! You can enjoy the cake as is or get creative with toppings. I love mine with a dollop of peanut butter, whipped topping, and sugar-free chocolate chips. Share your unique and healthy topping ideas in the comments below!
Fun Fact: Did you know that cocoa powder is not only delicious but also a great source of fiber? It contains 2 grams of fiber for every 10 calories, adding to the nutritional value of this delightful treat.
