Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Mug Cake

A few weeks ago I got an email from BzzAgent asking if I'd be interested in reviewing some products from EAS. Since I always love me a good protein powder, I said yes! 

While I received these products for free, all the opinions are my own.

I as really excited when my box came in the mail, I was impressed buy the variety of products and the fun shaker bottle. It;s purple and I like purple. I received several packets of the protein powder and 2 of Lean 15 protein bars.

I immediately busted into the protein bars because chocolate and peanut butter. Yum...

The main ingredient is soy protein and since soy gives me an upset stomach, I only had 1 bite. Oh my, that one bite was ridiculous. 

Did you ever have a Whatchamacallit? If not, you should because they are AMAZING and this protein bar tastes The only thing missing is the caramel. But I can live without the caramel. It was really tasty and I gave the rest to Kev. He loved them too and used the other bar to refuel after a tennis match.

I wanted to do something a little different with the protein powder and decided to use it in my go-to late night snack, a protein mug cake.

The ingredients: 1 serving of protein powder, cocoa powder, PB2, Egg Whites, Almond Milk and Baking Soda (unpictured)

Dump the protein powder in a good sized mug, add 1 tablespoon of cocoa and one tablespoon of PB2, and 1/4 tsp of baking soda.

Then the wet, 3 tablespoons of egg whites, and enough almond milk to mix it into a cake-like batter. It's about 2 tablespoons but add more if needed.

Mix it all up and put in the microwave for 1 minute, You'll probably need to cook it a little longer but do it in 10 second increments. It can go from tasty to overcooked in a few seconds.

There's no way to take a good picture of a mug cake but trust me when I tell you that you have to make this. You can also add a dollop of peanut butter on top for added yum and protein.

With the EAS protein clocking in at 25 grams, the eggs at 5 and some in the PB2 this little treat will only cost you less than 200 calories but you gain 32ish grams of protein. AND it's tasty as can be.

Really, you need to make this as soon as possible,
