Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein (Microwave Mug Cake) Recipe

My pal Andrea mentioned Powdered Peanut Butter the other day and it got me thinking I've never tried one of my 5 Minute Cakes with it. So off to the laboratory err I mean kitchen. The result was yummy. Why did it take me so long to try this?!

I topped a cooled slice with with No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream and a drizzle of Sugar Free Smucker's Strawberry Topping. But OMG it would be HEAVEN with a scoop of Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Ice Cream. A yummy weight loss surgery friendly dessert or heck I may have it for breakfast.

Oh man do those look good! Now I'm gonna have to try that, too! I haven't cooked/baked so much in years (since I found your site!). I love all things choco/pb. In fact, I made the chocolate/pb protein ice cream and at the last minute decided to add some chopped up banana. OMG..delish!!!

Thanks for all the good recipes! When will you publish a cookbook and get rich?

For those of us who don't have PB2 (yet!), what would happen if peanut butter was used instead?

Keep up the great work!!

Michelle "Shelly" said...

TY for the vote of confidence :)


Kerrah, Not sure. LOL. I'm thinking it would be too heavy & a lot more cals. I think I'd order the PB2. You'll have fun with it... great in shakes too!

I love me some EGGFACE!! I have had a crazy PMS craving for a peanut butter cookie for the past 3days. Then, I logged on and saw this recipe. It's in the microwave as I write.
Thanks again Shelly!!!

I've got a dumb question, for the cakes that use pudding mix, what do you do with the remainder? and how long does it keep?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

LOL Luz Hope you enjoy it & it gives you your PB&J fix.


Hey Erin, I fold up the envelope & tape the box. I have a tupperware in my pantry I put them in. I use the remainder for protein ice cream recipes, protein shakes, more cakes :)

Never a dumb Q. Ask away!


Terri said...

Have you tried to microwave them in the ramikins. I just bought me 4 of them to make some of your other recipes. I thought of pouring the mix into the 4 of them and microwaving them.

Love your recipes!!!!

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Hi Terri,

The ramekin would be too small for this. I use a regular 2 cup measuring cup (Pyrex, Fire King something like that) it GROWS LOL ;)


shannon said...

Would it be possible to bake these cakes in the oven or a small counter top oven? I do not have a microwave and I am dying to try one of your cakes. I have a bowl of fresh strawberries sliced and ready to go in the fridge.

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Bummer. I'd not want you to waste your stuff. I don't think it would work :(
