It's National Chocolate Cake Day!

Way back in 2008, I made the original version of this microwave mug protein cake after seeing a bunch of white flour, sugar versions on the internet. I've adapted that original recipe slightly over the years but it's still my go-to when I want CHOCOLATE.

You can also turn these into into mini muffins by pouring the same recipe above into a 12 cup mini muffin tin and baking at 350 for 10 minutes. I love to drop a single frozen cherry in each middle and make chocolate covered cherry muffins.

No Sugar Added, Protein Packed, Low Carb, but most importantly DELICIOUS.
